Kid-A is definitely my #1. Kill the Moonlight, Sound of Silver, Father Son and Holy Ghost, and Discovery are all in the top as well, but I'd have to think about it a lot more than I'm going to have time for before
Yeah - definitely a few I haven't given a listen yet. It's funny, I'll look at these lists and see an artist and think "yes - you got it right including them on this list". Then I'll see the album they picked and it's "NO - but you got the wrong album!"
I haven't been able to edit my list the last couple of days, so my list doesn't have an order to it.
But it has really been a blast going through the master list and choosing albums. I have lost 4 hard drives since I began reading Pitchfork and this has served as a great reminder of some of the albums I used to love and haven't given much thought to in a while.
building a list now, this is so much fun. looking over the lists is helping me remember a bunch of albums I adore but haven't listened to in a while. definitely hoping to find some new favorites as well!

I meant to make one, but I've been so busy the last two weeks that I didn't get a chance to. The lists that have been posted are really interesting and I really can't wait to see what the results are. $5 says that OK Computer tops it.
So on the staff list between the first 11 people listed there is a single vote for a MMJ album (Z).
Those people are idiots
I think you're being a little facetious, but this is an unfair criticism.
I assume a lot of these lists are personal, albums that hit hard, soundtracked a window of time in the past. Depending on how big that window is, the higher or lower the rating. You can't fault somebody for having different windows than yours. Especially when the site has written extremely positive coverage of the band in the past.
Have you actually read that? I picked it up a few years ago. Maybe it was my expectations or something but I didn't think it was very good. I think I was expecting something more based on the History and cultural importance of American Music. It was basically a travel diary. There are a few good interviews though. Also despite the name I think she mentioned MMJ once in the whole thing and briefly at that.
P.S. Until now I had no idea she was connected to Pitchfork
