nice write-up as usual, m'dear. i must say, though, i'm surprised at how divisive opinions have been on the new mogwai.. personally i didn't care for it much at all, though i can say that those songs were MUCH better live (this is where i stick my tongue out from you and go "mmbluhh"). also, a wonderful number one! from what i've seen, blood pressures isn't getting anywhere near the love it deserves! anyway, good stuff.
Woohoo! Reached 80% approval rating! Thanks everyone :]
I think The Kills album probably did not receive much list love because it's viewed as the weakest in their trajectory. It still has plenty of highlights, in my very obvious opinion.
I just noticed that I forgot to add a sad side note to the M83 write-up: my initial calculations placed it at #5 but then I realized I had entered "20 tracks" in the spreadsheet so it was later downgraded.
Yes, there's a spreadsheet involved in this process. I'm sure no one is surprised. O.o
