An odd number one, because a few weeks ago they gave the award for the 'most rewarding album of the past 12 months' to Fleet Foxes, I suppose they will have to give the prize back to Portishead:) http://www.uncut.co.uk/news/fleet_foxes/news/12440
Great list, best so far. I usually don't appreciate Uncut's list as a whole. But this was very good.
Guess I'll have to except the fact that VAMPIRE WEEKEND are gunna end well on the year end lists. It pisses me off.
What about the rest of the top 50 (I'll have to wait a few weeks till the new issue arrives over here)?
man, when did uncut become so trendy? 5 years ago their top 5 was
1. Warren Zevon – The Wind
2. Emmylou Harris – Stumble Into Grace
3. John Cale – Hobo Sapiens
4. Willard Grant Conspiracy – Regard The End
5. Robert Wyatt – Cuckooland
and they were one of the few music publications i'd pay any attention to. now they're just like all the rest...
Definitely the best list I've seen so far. Almost all my favorites that aren't country or folk are there.

Thanks Mitchell. I have updated the spreadsheet as well.
i know uncut became trendy. but i can't agree with mojo more. they picked portishead's album. i loved the album so much but it seems like nobody really picking it as best.
