For me it is the other way around. Melodrama is one of those albums on which every track is pretty great and that makes the competition tougher. We voted for 3 Melodrama songs in our list and I also voted for 3 of them on my top 75. None of these three made our top 100. I thought at least Homemade Dynamite would be a lock. I've noticed many different Lorde songs on various lists, so there might be a lot of vote splitting here. It might have cost Green Light the top spot, though Kendrick Lamarr also had many songs in contention. Didn't vote for Humble either, by the way (I'm also more of DNA. fan).
For me the most baffling exclusion is Beautifully Unconventional by Wolf Alice. For some reason I can't even explain I thought that one was beloved across this whole forum, but then everyone ended up voting for Don't Delete the Kisses, which I don't find half as good myself. I've warned you all, if Beautifully Unconventional doesn't end up higher than Don't Delete the Kisses I'd rebel. I still want to see the album results, but after that I'm going to hack this site and turn it into a Milli Vanilli re-appreciation spot. You've been warned.
