It's been a transitional year for A.V. Club. The print version of The Onion ceased publication, and much of AVC's senior staff jumped ship for Pitchfork's new film site, The Dissolve. And then they got a redesign which is still a little kink-y. But they're still one of the best all-around arts and entertainment sites as far as I'm concerned. Like just about everyone else, they dropped their Best Albums of Year list this week. Due to a few ties, A.V. Club ended up with a 23 album list, topped by Kanye West's Yeezus, which has been hovering around the Top 5s on many lists this list season. Haim's Days are Gone is at #2 and you can check out the whole list below...
