Possible caveat: there's a link to the list of just the top 40 albums, which has some differences (the point totals and numbers of mentions are different - they're different for Channel Orange on the P&J homepage, too - and a couple of albums at the bottom aren't in the top 40 on the full list I just posted). I'm sure this will get sorted out soon enough, but if the list should change it'll be noted here.

With all the love Kendrick Lamar is getting from critics, I'm kind of surprised to see it only 41 on the 2012 spreadsheet?

Umm... that's because what you're looking at is the very first version that I posted in the albums spreadsheet thread, when there were only a few lists available. Keep going down the thread - I've been posting updated versions on a regular basis. Lamar's been at a very comfortable #3 for quite a while now.

Sigh - sure enough, the posted list has changed over the last couple of hours. I'll try to post the revised top 100 here on Wednesday, provided it doesn't change yet again. I'd already entered the rankings into the spreadsheet, too - now I need to change a lot of them. Is it too much to ask that they don't post the goddamn list until they're sure it's accurate?

Christ Almighty. For the last time, I hope.

Nothing major this time - insert Azealia Banks's 1991 at #90 and drop the rest down a notch (goodbye, dB's). A couple of other minor position switches but nothing worth noting here.

Again, verify the godforsaken list BEFORE you post it, Voice! Jesus!
