They always do, absurdly, every year. When they get to the top ten it's one entry each weekday for two full weeks.

The five currently-highest-ranked albums on the spreadsheet that haven't appeared here yet are Kendrick Lamar, Sufjan Stevens, Father John Misty, Julia Holter, and Bjork. Anyone think any other albums might sneak into the top 5 instead? (The only other one I might see taking one of these slots is Oneohtrix Point Never.)

Well as a British outlet I wouldn't be surprised if someone like Blur or Gwenno was in the running, to upset the order of things. But yeah, those five are most likely of candidates. Wanna take bets as to which order they'll be in instead?..

I'd say the inclusion of Blur and the exclusion of FJM is most likely. I could also see Bjork getting slighted but I doubt it.
I just wanted to be one of those ghosts
You thought that you could forget
And then I haunt you via the rear view mirror
On a long drive from the back seat...

Well now we know, if one of those five is gonna miss out it ain't gonna be Björk. ;)

Well, there it is. List completed and as predicted by mowino's amazingly prescient powers, Kendrick wins! :P
