Wow. Is this the first list to mention Nostalgia Ultra? Glad someone finally remembered that album.

The first ten of this had me so excited and then it gradually coalesced into another tepid, generic list. Interesting to see Hamilton appear so high though. I've been wondering if and how it would factor into these lists. I'd imagine at the current pace, it should place as the number one musical theater album on the site. All it has to do is beat out West Side Story at 930, which I could see it clearing without too much difficulty.

I think is eligible, it's a critics' site so why not?

Number 7 should be Channel Orange.
