And as crazy as it seems, given what an overall lackluster, no blockbuster year it was for albums, I do think Trouble Will Find Me or Modern Vampires could close the year with a much more dominant finish than people anticipate...Trouble in particular is a big time grower that probably hadn't fully connected with reviewers before they went to print...would not be shocked at all to see that take the overall consensus polls by a larger than suspected margin...and Yeezus will most likely have a much stronger showing than many think.
All three titles are locks, me thinks, for top ten on the aggregate polls (Village Voice, Metacritic, Acclaimed Music), and probably all three top 5. I have no idea after that. Though my three favs on year are definitely National, Nick Cave, and Parquet Courts Light Up Gold.
