I'm a bit surprised that the Flying Lotus album and the Burial EP didn't make it in, though they probably have a rule somewhere about not including EP's.

Like I expected at the time, Burial has been screwed on year-end lists because Kindred is classified as an EP. With his new Truant/Rough Sleeper EP that just came out, he's definitely put out some of the best music this year, but it may not be remembered that way.

Burial just needs to put out another LP. It's been over 5 years since "Untrue"!

I shared these sentiments on beats per minute. fought tooth and nail to have him on the full lengths but alas, wasn't to be

Voice From the Lake. Probably the most underrated album of the year. Not even other electronica-friendly lists (LWE and FACT for example) have included it, but it's not only one of the top techno albums, it's one of the best LPs of the year. Kudos to RA for recognizing it.
