Re: AMF's Favorite Albums of the First Half of 2020, RESULTS!

It's hard to think of the last time we had an album come out in the first half of the year that was so obviously going to end up as the AOTY consensus (in the way that the Fiona Apple album certainly has). Maybe 2009 with Animal Collective? To Pimp a Butterfly was released in March 2015 and Blackst...

One of the biggest surprises is Frank Ocean underperforming in both polls (mainly albums though). Another surprise is, in my opinion, the over performance of Arcade Fire! Did not expect to see The Suburbs at #2, or many of there songs to be as high as they were.
