#5 is great until you grow tired of it (approx. 3 weeks) - all the rest I was tired of on first listen.

Grimes for the win. Deserved.

Posted by Eduardo | November 19, 2012 1:56 PM

100% garbage list, none of those records belong in a top 50 let alone a top 10.

Posted by Anonymous | November 19, 2012 1:56 PM

That list is an embarrassment.

how is anything great when grimes is on top

I think that now is the time for people to post their Top Ten albums for 2011. Music needs to be subjected to a test of time, nobody can really judge the relative merits of albums that just came out a month or two ago.

Posted by Anonymous | November 19, 2012 2:15 PM

That none of you turds have Swans on your list is disgraceful. Easily the best album of the year.

DAWG POWER

Sorry, I only listen to Pitchfork. I can't wait for them to tell me that Channel Orange is the best album of the year.

Posted by Venkman | November 19, 2012 4:04 PM

I guess Radiohead didn't release anything this year? I thought the top spot was reserved for anything they release regardless of the quality.

Posted by Anonymous | November 19, 2012 4:25 PM

If Grimes is #1, then that list is bullshit.

Posted by Anonymous | November 19, 2012 4:51 PM

@4:04: Yeah, everyone knows Pitchfork loves black people. Placing Kanye's "Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" at #1 in 2010 was laughable.

SCOTT WALKER - BISH BOSCH

Alrune Rod-Hej Du beats out anything on this list but it is not from this year.

I went to sleep, and when I woke up the entire country became faggots. Truly depressing.

Bad Boy Chef's Billyburger Reunion and Hummus Compilation should be the one and only NUMBER ONE on all of your lists. Beyatchis.
