Henrik, I tried to attach the spreadsheet file, but received a message that the file is too big and that the file upload limit is 5MB. How did you upload the template file, which was over 10?

Geez, I hope that St. Vincent's three wonderful albums this decade are able to catch up...

Agreed. Her 2014 self-titled is this decade’s greatest rock album imo.

Comments:
*Man, that Pitchfork reader's poll wasn't an anomaly, was it? That poll's absurdly front-loaded top 6 represents 6 of the current top 7. This might change as more UK and international lists are added, but somehow I doubt it'll change very much. At any rate, as expected, TPAB and MBDTF are already pulling away from the pack.

*For some artists (Vampire Weekend, Sufjan Stevens) it's always been obvious which of their albums would dominate in these polls. For others (St. Vincent stands out), there's a leader right now but that could easily change. Hands down, for me anyway, the single biggest surprise so far is that Tame Impala's Currents is absolutely annihilating Lonerism. I'm stunned that the latter isn't doing better.

*Going to try to upload the spreadsheet now. If it still doesn't work I'll send it to Henrik to post.

I really do wish that publications would hold off until January to make these lists. Looking at the top 60 and seeing only one 2019 album made it? It's something so clearly inaccurate and so easily fixable by simply waiting and letting 2019 finish out properly.

It puts a smile on my face to see TPAB at #1 :mrgreen: I really hope that it stays in that position. I expect it to enter among the top 100 all-time albums once the next update of that sort comes around.

Sharon Van Etten : Tramp, Are We There, Remind Me Tomorrow
Julien Baker : Sprained Ankle, Turn Out the Lights
Mitski : Puberty 2, Be the Cowboy

Big Thief : Capacity, UFOF, Two Hands
Julianna Barwick : The Magic Place, Nepenthe
Waxahatchee : Cerulean Salt, Out in the Storm
Julia Holter : Loud City Song, Have You in My Wilderness, Aviary
Death Grips: Exmilitary, The Money Store, No Love Deep Web, their whole discography really, but those first three in particular
Tyler, the Creator : Flower Boy, IGOR, although seeing one list with Goblin was a fun surprise
Parquet Courts : Light Up Gold, Sunbathing Animal, Human Performance, Wide Awake!!!
Sturgill Simpson : Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, A Sailor's Guide to Earth

Plenty more I'm forgetting

It would save you both more time figuring out what artists on the spreadsheet don't have two decently-received albums released in the last decade.

True. There are definitely some artists though that have released multiple well-regarded releases where one of them clearly is getting substantially higher placement than the others. I think of Kacey Musgraves with Golden Hour, LCD Soundsystem with This Is Happening, Solange with a Seat at the Table, Bowie, Arcade Fire, FJM, etc.

I'm surprised that Teen Dream is doing so well. And even better with that new Noisey list as well.

A shame that Swans and Sun Kil Moon are being almost completely ignored - whether you like Gira and Kozelek or not they put out some of the best stuff this decade.

I'm surprised that we aren't seeing more critics picking Kacey Musgraves for Same Trailer Different Park.

I prefer Pageant Material of all her albums and I consider Merry Go Round her best song overall, which is getting forgotten as well.
