Gaaa!!! I hate when they do things like this! alt-J is NOT in fifth place on this list, it's in seventh! Etc., etc. (This is what drives me nuts about Films101.com, as well.)

Sigh. I'll respect the rankings, but I will mark the plus-30 number as 46 to reflect that this "top 10" actually contains 16 albums.

[POSTSCRIPT - On further reflection, I should keep 40 as the plus-30 number if I'm keeping the rankings. It just makes more sense that way.]

By doing this you will give the albums from place 4 a better score than they should have. I'm with you on the hate and I think Pop News should be punished (if anything) and not rewarded.
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

See my P.S. above - I came to this conclusion at pretty much the same time you did.

In the past we have renumbered lists like this though. The numbers would then be:

1/ Beach House - Bloom
2/ Deerhoof - Breakup Song
3/ Phantom Buffalo - Tadaloora
5/ Grizzly Bear - Shields
5/ Dominique A - Vers les lueurs
5/ Sharon Van Etten - Tramp
7/ Alt-J - An Awesome Wave
9/ Islands - A Sleep & a Forgetting
9/ Evening Hymns - Spectral Dusk
9/ Kevin Tihista's Red Terror - On This Dark Street
11/ Arlt - Feu la figure
12/ Will Stratton - Post Empire
13/ Don Nino - In the Backyard of Your Mind
15/ Jason Lytle – Dept. of Disappearance
15/ Perfume Genius - Put Your Back N 2 It
15/ Phantom Ghost - Pardon My English

Row 3: 46

We have to give them credit for using groups of 1 and 3 only, so we didn't have to use decimals in the spreadsheet. :P

Yes, there's that. Thanks for the clarification, Henrik.
