One thing to consider, this list was voted on by the readers and staff of Brainwashed.com. Personally, I believe it's an improvement that there is nothing: Nurse With Wound, Legendary Pink Dot, Edward Ka-spel listed in the top 50. I remember in previous "best of" list NWW would have two albums in the top 20......but I also understand these groups are there bread and butter.
Haven't heard much of the new Om & Earth like I did the previous releases. This is the second time in the last four or five years that a Swans release ended up in the top spot and I have no doubt this one is probably deserving.
Acts Of The Year......was CAN really touring this year?
Two things the list provides that I truly enjoy: Overlooked Staff Picks and Worst Album
The Overlooked Staff Picks is something I will be looking up / listening to over the coming months. Not having a dog in the race, I do find it somewhat funny that a few here at SYG have posted about the Animal Collective release being left off some "best of" list and the Brainwashed folks have it on there "worst of" list : )
