Only album votes for me as well...

Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
LCD Soundsystem - This is Happening
Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest

Cosmogramma vs Body Talk was the only somewhat hard choice. All 8 albums are great though.

Comments:
I guess there's no reason logically to dislike Plundered My Soul being a 2010 song but it still feels wrong. I guess you couldn't put it in 1972 though.
Expect albums at some point.
