I totally cheated this year by making three albums tied for tenth place. So my top ten albums of the year is actually a top 12. I did this totally scientifically, I made a short list and album by album I asked myself which of the two I liked more and gave the winner one point. I definitely did the A is better than B but B is better than C but C is better than A confusion thing, but who cares, I normally regret these lists later anyway.
For example El-P’s Cancer 4 the Cure was a disappointment to me in 2012 and it almost for sure would be number 1 if I had to do the list over again. The number 1 album would probably drop out of the top ten completely.
