You know nothing about hip-hop. I would say it’s a little early to say that kind of stuff about Yeezus — shit, the thing isn’t even OUT yet. No need to make blind declarations. Chill. You’re also being incredibly pretentious.

Good choices in the top 10.

I’d throw in (for my top 25):
Cassie – RockaByeBaby
Ghostface Killah – 12 Reasons to Die

Some of my favorites:
Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
My Bloody Valentine – m b v
The Strokes – Comedown Machine
Deafheaven – Sunbather
Justin Timberlake – The 20/20 Experience
Phoenix – Bankrupt! (This one deserves more credit)

Some that I liked a lot, but aren’t top-tier:
Ghostface Killah – 12 Reasons to Die (I’m baffled this didn’t make Stereogum’s top 25)
Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City (I don’t think this is even close to a #1 album, though)
Big K.R.I.T. – King Remembered In Time (Don’t sleep on K.R.I.T.!)
Cassie – RockaByeBaby

Gucci Mane’s Trap God 2 and Trap House 3 have some great songs, but aren’t consistent (When IS Gucci consistent?). Young Thug’s 1017 Thug has 2 of the best songs of the year (2 Cups Stuffed & Dead Fo Real) — I’m looking forward to what he’s gonna drop next.

Best Kinsella Albums would be a cool list

Not a fan of the Third/Sister Lovers picks… should be “Stroke It Noel” (their best song imo) and “Jesus Christ” coming out from that album. While I’m sure this will be quite controversial, my favorite joint from Radio City is “Way Out West.” “I’m in Love With a Girl” could have made this list also. #1 Record picks, however, I mostly agree with. Problem is, there are just so many good Big Star songs that it becomes hard to rank a definitive top 10.

Pet Sounds… obvious choice
