    I also The Idler Wheel, should have counted that as a honorable mention for 2012. It's pretty much a toss up with Grimes' Visions.

    I'm not yet certain how I'd rank them by year, but was just thinking that Perfume Genius was a huge part of the last decade for me...with records coming out in 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2017.
