So now Everyday Life has been out in the world for nearly a month, I think it's time to make your ultimate album ranking.
Most of the time we rank the albums from best to worst or in different tiers but without really giving scores. I challenge you to rank the album, based on the average score of of all the songs. Not counting single releases, b-sides or EP's or songs/interludes shorter than 1 minute.

I'll start (you can copy-paste this and give individual scores):

I feel like I was overly critical with this (I would've said AROBTTH and X&Y are more 9 albums without doing this), and X&Y is actually my favorite album but I think it's more the feel as a whole that makes it so amazing to me. Also I guess there aren't really any tracks on AROBTTH that I dislike while I'm not really a fan of A Message so that was a factor.

2. X&Y 7.2
