Re: EOY 2015 Predictions

I'm disappointed in the lack of support for Blacker the Berry compared with the other two big Kendrick tracks--in what world are King Kunta or Alright in the same league?? Personally I prefer "King Kunta", but "The Blacker the Berry" is Kendrick's greatest lyrical moment. I have been bewildered at ...

Surprising number one considering this isn't a British publication. Really glad about the inclusion of Push the Sky Away and a Wild Beasts record, though not one I would expect. And if I'm not mistaken, this list has zero entries for 2014 or 2015, which is disappointing.
