This is actually a compilation, and is therefore ineligible. Would you like me to move everything under it up one?
I thought it might be eligible for the same reason as The Three E.P.'s. It seems to be similar in concept.

Surprised to see The Life of Pablo so low. Maybe the Kanye love doesn’t extend to albums as much as songs... (here’s hoping that Yeezus doesn’t end up in the top 10)
It'd probably get a boost had I voted. So with that in mind, there's a chance Pablo will place well in the all-time poll.
