Checked out your chart on the basis of your review of the new Jack White album which I'm really liking too! Impressive stuff, nice one for sticking up for Welcome To The Black Parade!

20 albums in common, and at least a dozen fantastic choices that could've easily landed on my chart. Love your descriptions :)

From Thad
Love Yeezus and Channel ORANGE in the top 10. Fantastic records, hip-hop/R&B doesn't get enough love here. Of course OK Computer #1 is always great. The Black Parade is a funny choice because I feel like people never give it any credit but for what it is, it's the best it could possibly be which I think is saying a lot.

Yeezus is a great album, so the guy below me clearly doesn't know what he's talking about. Love all the Kanye, and I can't say I've ever seen George Michael in a top 10. Dare I say, brave choices?
