1. Sleater-Kinney - The Woods vs. 8. Pixies - Trompe le Monde
4. Julia Holter - Ekstasis vs. 2. Ennio Morricone - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
5. Camel - Mirage vs. 7. The Knife - Deep Cuts
3. Jóhann Jóhannsson - Fôrdlandia vs. 6. Dolly Parton - Jolene

So, what we have here are three of my nominations (#3, #5, #6), two albums I could have nominated (#1 and #2), one of my favorite discoveries in this while game (#4) and one of the better dance albums out there (#7). What an amazing line-up! Oh yeah, also Trompe le Monde, which is fine, but really just happy to be here in this crowd.
