Bob Dylan - Desire
Serge Gainsbourg - Initials B.B.
St. Vincent - Marry Me
Mitski - Bury Me at Makeout Creek

The fourth best album of Pink Floyd against the best album of Gainsbourg imo = tough choice.
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

6. Bob Dylan - Desire v. 1. Echo and the Bunnymen - Crocodiles
8. Serge Gainsbourg - Initials B.B. v. 7. Pink Floyd - Animals
4. The Chameleons - Script of the Bridge v. 3. St. Vincent - Marry Me
2. Mitski - Bury Me at Makeout Creek v. 5. The Sound - Jeopardy

How can I choose between Chameleons and Annie Clark? Couldn't they have been paired up with Initials and Animals?

First the votes:
1. Bob Dylan - Desire vs. Echo and the Bunnymen - Crocodiles
2. Serge Gainsbourg - Initials B.B. vs. Pink Floyd - Animals
3. The Chameleons - Script of the Bridge vs. St. Vincent - Marry Me
4. Mitski - Bury Me at Makeout Creek vs. The Sound - Jeopardy

And like I said last week I'll now rank all the last 16, with a They Shoot Picture style categorization:

Highly Recommended:

1. Mitski - Bury Me at Makeout Creek

Recommended:

2. Tokyo Jihen - Kyōiku
3. Colin Stetson - New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges
4. The Chameleons - Script of the Bridge
5. The Velvet Underground - VU
6. Buffy Sainte-Marie - It's My Way
7. Grimes - Art Angels
8. St. Vincent - Marry Me
9. Peter Gabriel - Us
10. Bob Dylan - Desire
11. The Sound - Jeopardy

Worth a listen:

12. Echo and the Bunnymen - Crocodiles
13. Pink Floyd - Animals

Approach with caution:

14. Serge Gainsbourg - Initials B.B.
15. Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape
16. Blur - 13

Not recommended:
None, luckily.

So, three albums I don't really like, two I can take or leave, 10 very good ones and one masterpiece. Not bad at all, but it has been much better in this game too.
