Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Voted Best Album Of 2010 By Readers

There are any number of albums that could be considered in the conversation for best album of 2010, but according to the readers of the MTV Newsroom Blog, it’s a two-horse race between Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (the consensus favorite among critics, including MTV News’ own James Montgomery) and Eminem’s Recovery (an overwhelming favorite among the readers and commenters all over MTV News). On Thursday (December 16), we decided to attempt put the argument to rest and let the readers vote in a poll that would decide, once and for all, exactly which album is the superior one at year’s end.

After 24 hours and over 20,000 votes, we’re actually no clearer to figuring out a consensus winner. Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy did win the poll with 51 percent of the vote, but Eminem’s Recovery was right behind it with 47 percent (they were separated by less than a thousand votes). Considering there were 15 possible albums people could have voted for, that’s a pretty impressive run from both sides. West is the winner, but Slim Shady racked up enough support to keep himself in the conversation.

With 98 percent of voters picking between two albums, there wasn’t much room for everybody else. Of the albums not made by West or Eminem, Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Left Foot, Son of Chico Dusty brought in the most number of votes, though it still wasn’t good enough for a full percentage point. Rihanna’s Loud was the only other album on the list to pick up votes in the triple-digits. And poor Robyn ended up at the back of the line, as Body Talk finished at the rear.
