I’m a Sufjan fangirl and proud of it, so I have no complaints about this list. The inclusion of Ryan Gosling is just the icing on the cake.
Of my favourite albums of the year (Austra, Young Galaxy, Wild Beasts, The Antlers) the only one I’m surprised that’s not on there is The Antlers. No big deal—it’s not like I’m going to enjoy them any less because P4K passed them over.
A better list than I would have expected.
I haven’t listened to a number of these albums, but credit where credit is due: I’m suspecting several of these won’t be seen on any other lists, so props to Uncut for going against the grain.
Definitely prefer this to Q’s list, which forgot to include M83.
Ceremonials wasn’t a terrible album, but it definitely shouldn’t have topped this list. And Elbow in the top 10? Dd they assume that the first four songs were indicative of the rest of the album, and then stop listening?
