yeah thats a great placement for her and that record. still haven't heard the whole thing but the bits i heard were really strong. its always a treat to see records that were critically acclaimed but not darlings in the sense of TVOTR or fleet foxes do terrific in this sort of polls. kinda like post war winning our 06 poll.

Good to see this ahead of that. Isn't it funny how the collated opinion of hundreds of critics is not exactly the same as mine.

i can't remember chrono, are you not an m ward fan? thats fine if that's the case, but the situation is quite similar to how ward took the poll that year. there were some feverent admirers, yes, but it won b/c nearly everyone who heard it enjoyed it pretty fine and well and ranked it somewhere solid + respectable in their top 20. a lot of people doing that yields a damn nice showing, like that badu record.

I love Fleet Foxes but I agree that Erykah should place higher
