    You need to tell me more about how they formulate these rankings.

    It's done in a similar way to ELO rankings are used in chess.

    Based on the rankings today, a list by Pitchfork would expect to see Kid A above Discovery. If that wasn't the case, it would be the equivalent of an upset in chess and the points each album has would be changed and the rankings could do as well.

    This elimantes the bias of including a best of list from 1993 that couldn't have those two albums on and also from only including new lists (like end of year).

    So every album in a list below Kid A is considered to have been beaten by it as if it was an indivual chess mathc. All this shakes out and you end up with a ranking.

    The sites owner had updated it by putting more lists in to the points calculation.

    Funeral > Loveless? I guess it was time someone broke it to me.

    Funeral has gone down a little, was mid 30s on last update in 2010.

    More upset at The Suburbs being higher than Hounds of Love, Village Green Preservation Society, Cosmo's Factory and The Blueprint.

    Nice to see marginal gains for Kind of Blue and A Love Supreme in the top 100. Is This It and Kid A doing well also.
