Glad to see Chairlift in there as well as Frankie Rose and Merchandise in Honorable Mentions. Was hoping to see Young Magic mentioned somewhere, as Melt was one of my favorite records back in February, but you can't win em all.

It's almost baffling how much music I still haven't heard from this year. Going to spend some time with this list throughout the first few months of 2013.

I'll be honest, I haven't heard the majority of those records... but the ones I have heard I agree should be on the list

was really surprising to see Swearin' and Waxahatchee get honorable mentions without being reviewed?

I used to really like Pitchfork as a music source, but I can't even keep up anymore. And it seems the kind of music that they rate highest isn't even my kind of music anymore - I've never been a huge hip-hop fan, and I can't get into droney-ambient rock that seems to top critics lists the past few years. Japandroids are pretty cool though, so that's neat I guess.

Man last year had Bon Iver, M83, Destroyer... This year is pretty ugh to me.

Some years the critical darlings align pretty well with what I'm into. This year less so. Though I've been on the same page about critically-lauded R&B, which is nice.

I can't imagine the top 5 not being Grimes, Frank, Kendrick, Death Grips and Godspeed. Dunno what order. and Japandroids will be top ten. It was weird seeing so many of these this low, but I guess they had a lot to pick from. Cat Power ended up higher than some others with a lower score, which was cool.

speaking of their albums from this year, putting them next to each other seems ok, both were really solid albums from unique, innovative artists that weren't really up to par with their last releases.
