They posted the top 10 a day early (I figured they probably would):

10 - Carly Rae Jepsen - Kiss
9 - David Byrne & St. Vincent - Love This Giant
8 - Jessie Ware - Devotion
7 - Torche - Harmonicraft
6 - Flying Lotus - Until the Quiet Comes
5 - Miguel - Kaleidoscope Dream

3 - Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do
2 - Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
1 - Grimes - Visions

#10: Really, AllMusic? Really?

Nice catch Harold. When they didn't post it last Friday, I wondered which moment they would wait to delay it for.

While the inclusion of No.10 may be questionable (to be fair I haven't heard it or plan to hear it) all the other albums fall in with expectations. After receiving its top-of-the-poll position, I kinda hoped that AMG would give Visions a 4.5, similar to how they've just nudged up the rating on The Haunted Man. Too bad...

While they won't be of any use to this site's 2012 ranking, the AllMusic's editorial team did once again publish individual genre lists. Here's a compilation of their links, in case anyone is curious:
