Pretty good overall. I switched the top two and picked the wrong token hip hop album at #4, but otherwise nailed the top 5. Less solid on the back 5, I mistakenly thought that this was the year for a token metal album in the top 10. Junior Boys missed by a pip. And Destroyer not making the cut is a crime...
