i've never heard of EMA either. after that, danny brown doesn't ring any bells.

can't believe wild flag placed so high, that feels really out of left field. had it been getting any widespread or intense critical buzz that i missed?

i thought everyone liked that katy b album more. that it would be closer to the top.

scott seward, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

britney should have been closer to the top too. sad to see her stuck next to the foo fighters. hey, apparently the foo fighters had an album out!

congrats on all the comments, scott!

well, i wrote that long year-end blog thing, so i figured it would be easy enough to cut & paste. i hadn't sent anything in since the xhuxk years.

scott seward, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

really loving Tha Carter IV all the way down at #316, that's a sales-to-votes ratio maybe slightly better than Michael Buble

skot, you should check out danny brown, he's from detroit and mostly raps about eating pussy in a squeaky high voice over grimy beats. and also about scrap metal.

death grips at 165 surprising too! NOT just ilxors and brits liked that album.

scott seward, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

really surprised by "til the world ends" in the top ten. didn't realize that many ppl liked that song.

The Reverend, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

did jeff n glenn not get Turisas (lol) in the top 200?

Jimmy Riddle Orchestra (Armand Schaubroeck Ratfucker), Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

i never even heard of death grips until it started showing up on year-end lists a few weeks ago

Reginald "Bono" Dwight (some dude), Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

Fairly average year - I was the only voter for 6 of my 10. Some of them didn't surprise me - I wasn't expecting a huge groundswell of support for Emmure, and obviously Lulu was the metal pervert's vote-getter of choice, so I was out there alone in supporting Morbid Angel. But nobody else liked Amon Amarth's album this year? Or Girl in a Coma's? Those were great, catchy records.

誤訳侮辱, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh wait Yob in the top 200 too. 5 metal albums (i don't count ghost). hipster metal is finally dead. i mean they are hipster picks but still, not a big metallic showing. or maybe its always like that? seemed like more a few years back.

scott seward, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

i like that philip sherburne voted for blut aus nord.

scott seward, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

doesn't ned do pazz & jop? he could have been the 3rd vote for the 5 eps.

scott seward, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

and he could have gotten jess to vote for it. he should have pulled a bob seger and gotten it in the top 20.

tom's essay is so great even though i was like "i never need to read another thing about ldr"

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

you'd have to pay me a lot of money to listen to the entire jay/kanye album. why didn't they call it JAKaNYeZ?

scott seward, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

also the metal albums i voted for that weren't lulu (goreaphobia and in solitude) didn't do anything in the top 200 :(

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Wednesday, 18 January 2012 02:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

PJ's album is a lot more metal than a lot of metal! so i can dig that. she was robbed by TunEleSsYawnzzzz.

interesting
Here are the 2011 voters sorted by centricity, which is a measure of how close their album ballots came to matching the critical consensus. In 2010 there were 26 voters with >.7 centricity. In 2011 only 4!
