    Great list of people there, but I can’t believe Kanye West and JayZ got a mention! I’m not music snob but anything West touches turns to dust in my opinion

    Actually, it was a great year for the girls! They did well in almost everyone’s best of the year.

    No PJ though? Lovely album that one…

    No Brandt Brauer Frick makes this list completely meaningless to be perfectly honest. The Field should probably be here too

    i agree Girls is an amazing album .. i cant believe Battles didn’t make it on most lists .. its the only really interesting album of a pretty dull year for new music .. worst since the turn of the millennial as far as im concerned !!! tuneyards and sbtrct is pretty good call !!! james blake .. hmmmm .. sleepy sleepy time !!!
