With a mostly black top 5 and lots of female solo artists or duos where a woman has a major implication (and a couple all female bands), this top avoids most of the critics stereotypes (though you can't say the top 20 is highly unpredictable and the most unlikely name in the top 30 is, strangely, Radiohead)
3 El-P produced albums in the top 30, I like that ! Though it probably means that RTJ will completely be eclipsed by its follow up in the long haul.
