Awesome list! According to the link they used a broader set of contributors than their core five writers to compile this, which explains the differences between this and their year-end list. I like the mix of Quietus usual suspects like Richard Dawson, Grumbling Fur and East India Youth with more mainstream releases. But where the heck are Swans?? The Seer was their 2012 AOTY and To Be Kind and My Father... were each #3 in their respective years.
