Quite a slow start to 2018 - the current number one would only have made number 18 on last year's list. I'm sure there are many great albums to come later this year.

Shouldn't We Consider Against All Logic's 2012-2017 as a Studio Album?Many Sources(eg.RateYourMusic)List It as a Studio Album.Otherwise I Can't Really Imagine Why It Is Absent from the Lists

Too few reviews?

Perhaps,seeing that some critics may also consider it as a compilation album.

For Endless,it's technically from 2016,and from what i've seen,it is not so well-received by critics.

Metascore of 82 from 5 reviews at https://www.metacritic.com/music/2012-2 ... -all-logic
AOTY score of 78 from 7 (same 5 + 2 others) reviews at https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/10 ... 2-2017.php

Only 2 (Pitchfork & AllMusic) included here, though 4 of the others (Clash, PMA, Spectrum Culture & Resident Advisor) included in year end source list (different criteria?) viewtopic.php?f=21&t=6125 & on AnyDecentMusic which also restricts no. of sources to "intelligent, independent and sussed" though again not same criteria http://anydecentmusic.com/about.aspx

Though lower down thread on EOY 2017 source list

"Resident Advisor has been deleted because (per a message in another thread) they've announced they're no longer doing year-end polls."
