I never really lock down album overall, too hard. Although i just locked down that list with one glaring omission that you reminded me of now...Rap album of the year is definitely Shabazz Palaces. I also really liked these:
Doomtree - No Kings
BIG Keith (foooo shoooo)
Dad Rascist - although their mixtapes are better
Dang, maybe I should make a rap top ten too.
It takes a lot to impress me - my favorite rapper is qtip and I listen to a shitload of Tribe
