So already 2nd "best of the decade so far" appearance for Benji, the album might get a good head start on the AM3000. I think Beyonce self titled was fairly high on Pitchfork's list too.
Edgy list as usual with Fact, the Swans album that made the cut is neither of those you might expect ;)

Kanye puts 2 albums on the list, haven't thoroughly checked but I think he is the only one.

That one belongs as well but yeah Channel Orange has to be in their. This is a pretty average list.

This is a very interesting list, not always in good ways. I usually like Fact's lists (they are one of my favorite sources in general), but this is a bit too much for me, to place MBDTF so low and not even have Channel Orange anywhere. On the other hand, I love some of the other surprises, such as Andy Stott, Oneohtrix Point Never, John Maus and Shackleton.
