    Default The Predict Pitchfork's Top 25 Albums of the Year Game

    Music critic punching bags Pitchfork have begun releasing their list of this year's top albums. As usual, the bottom portion of their list is once again made up by albums they didn't make an extraordinary amount of fuss about throughout the year, didn't attach Best New Music hype onto and a lot have an average rating in the mid-7.0s. And then there are albums which they did, but sit at the bottom of the list. That's Pitchfork for you. I thought it'd be fun if made a little game out of this and tried to predict the rest of their list for the year. Here's what we're working with so far:

    Honorable Mentions:
    The Big Pink - A Brief History of Love

    The thread isn't a predict the top albums list, though. This is a game thread. Go away.

    Whoever comes closest to predicting the top 25 (or at least the top 10) achieves great foresight on Pitchfork predictability and will be looked upon as "cool."
