They've got a bunch of usual suspects (Low, Janelle Monae, Mitski, Pusha T, Let's Eat Grandma, Kacey Musgraves), a couple late-2017 albums (Bjork, Neil Young), the token Paul McCartney inclusion, a head-scratcher or two (Cypress Hill at #16?), and a #1 pick that may surprise you. Check out the full list below.
