The album was pretty gnarly. Sad it's their last one.

Life Of Pablo is a great album. Better than Lemonade and a lot of other stuff that ended up getting lauded over it IMO, but I digress. It was honestly pretty hard to do a top 25 this year. So many great albums. If I had done different lists organized by genre or something it might have been easier to be even more inclusive, but yeah.

Let me know if you want any .zip files of any of my top 25 or any honorable mentions. I think you'd like Astronoid, The Midnight, etc. I rip almost all my stuff from FLAC or CD to 320 CBR MP3, which is about as good as it gets for that format.

I'll let you know. I might be doing a AOTY by genre in my main journal today.
