I would have thought that Timberlake's newest album, with a Metacritic score of 75 based on 35 reviews, would have gotten on this list. But I guess not.

I'm more surprised that Low and Suede missed the cut. Maybe they'll show up on the 15th.

I'm liking Rhye a lot.

Based on his SNL performance, Justin Timberlake's new album is unlistenable.

Thanks for another great update Otis!

I'm a bit surprised that Phosphorecent is so low. The top five albums are all really great though.

Otis, was Kacey Musgraves close to making the list? Her score of 90 on metacritic is higher than M B V's (although she only has 8 reviews).

Musgraves has won only three ratings (Rolling, Paste, AMG).

It takes 7 to enter the top.
