By Scott Lapatine / May 25, 2012 - 6:16 pm

This week we revealed our 25 favorite albums of 2012 so far, always a controversial topic. But you also found time for some passionate debate about whether I’m allowed to post a Dave Matthews Band song on this blog. (BTW, I am.) Let’s take a look at your thoughts on the above, and see whose scored highest and lowest.

it’s been only five months, and if the rumors are true: liars, hot chip, fiona apple, peaking lights, dirty projectors, twin shadow, yeasayer, purity ring, animal collective, tame impala, flying lotus, crystal castles, tamaryn, grizzly bear, flaming lips, darkside, mister lies, matthew dear, ariel pink, how to dress well, mazzy star, the avalanches, mgmt, xx, atoms for peace, how to destroy angels and vampire weekend are all releasing new albums. i think this is going to be the best year for music of the decade!

I think you mean LMFAO Cloud Nothings, the rockin’-sockin’ fresh young group behind the season’s biggest hit “Attack on Party Rocking (Sexy Future/Sexy Past).”

Michael Hanna | May 19th Score:-17

Oh Phil, I realize it’s been a long time since the glory days of synth drums, the mysterious resilience of your last remaining strip of hair, and “singing” about your failed marriages, but that’s no reason to go making up stories.

#4 shepard | May 23rd Score:-19

AND Phil Collins is your icon? Do you like anything good? I can write, I have an encyclopedic knowledge of rock music, and I have a knack for discovering great new bands. When can I start, Stereogum?

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR’S CHOICE (AMRIT)

Noah Green | May 23rd Score:0

This song would mash up pretty well with Billy Idol’s “Eyes Without a Face.”
