Curious about your methodology:
Do you take notes throughout the year on the albums to go back and look at? I think that if I did a list like this, I would have a bad tendency to really weigh albums that I'm buzzing on toward the end of the year (like the Oscars), and I'd forget a bunch of the albums I liked from earlier in the year.
The TVOTR album, for instance, was awesome. It would be high on my list for sure. That being said, I haven't listened to it in probably 5 months. On the other hand, right now I can't get enough of WU LYF, but that's because I've been listening to them nonstop for the last 48 hours. Who knows if they'd make my list in six months... but right now.. they'd be toward the top.
In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.
