And both, in fact, made a respectable showing on the EOY albums spreadsheet: Light Up Gold is at #399, while Big Inner is all the way up at #160. But they're both really only gaining national/international critical traction and widespread attention now - Big Inner is actually the lead review in the current issue of Uncut, I think. It's entirely appropriate for these albums to be here atop the first Mega-Critic of 2013, and I would expect both to end up significantly higher on the 2013 spreadsheet.
