I'm considering this a top 50 list. The top 20 will each receive a rank of 10.5 on the spreadsheet, and the 30 honorable mentions (#21-50) will get a rank of 35.5.

??? Somebody at Glide screwed something up (and this is how it looks on the site itself) - Mirage Rock is the Band of Horses album, while the Band of Skulls album is titled Sweet Sour. It looks like whoever posted the list may have been thinking of Infinite Arms, BoH's previous album. I have no idea what Infinite (or "Infiniite") Shadows might be. I'm assuming that both "Bands" were intended to be included on the list, though.
