that k'naan record was outright terrible, and BP3 has no business being on any top of anything lists. otherwise, this seems fine i guess.

I've bought albums on Amazon for eighty two cents. They can give Aiden AotY and I wouldn't care.

I love Amazon also. I buy most of my cds from Amazon. I've been able to get two cds before for a penny each.

I'm glad to see The Pains of Being Pure at Heart getting some love outside of hipster lists. Such a grade-A album in my opinion.

Some albums in the list are decent, but Girls and Passion Pit are perfect examples of mediocre, extremely overestimated bands. Thanks Pitchfork!

List ain't half bad, I'm surprised Middle Cyclone took first though, it's good, but it ain't that good.

And Passion Pit was doing the hype train long before Pitchfork - in fact Manners didn't even make their best new music section. Girls though... ek.

lol kingsoby you said exactly what I was thinking. BP3 doesn't even make top 20 hip-hop cds of 09 let alone all albums.

How the hell did they not put Cudi on there?

lol a major company? the majority of the artists on this list are hardly what i would call mainstream acts, so i'm not sure what the correlation is between amazon being a major corporation and these artists
