One of the better lists, some great ones on here

I always wonder about the coherence of these lists and how they go about choosing
Some of the choices are so insightful and then there are these horrid choices which completely go against the albums chosen, How do you have Mogwai on your list and choose Peasant as your number 1 album or Ryuichi Sakamoto and somehow have Kelela at number 6 siggggh.
