Mount Eerie's A Crow Looked at Me appeared on more lists than any other local album from the last decade. 

Most national publications with a music section have now released a Best Albums of the Decade list. While Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, and Beyoncé took top spots, Seattle-area musicians popped up throughout, so I scraped through and offer you the totals. I didn't bother ranking based on list position since these lists are already pretty arbitrary—especially with regards to the 62nd best album versus the 41st best album (rankings are with the lists below, if you're curious). 

The 2017 album A Crow Looked at Me by Mount Eerie (moniker of Phil Elverum)—which details the death of Elverum's wife in wrenching, broken folk tracks—landed on the most lists. Car Seat Headrest's introspective, guitar rock bildungsroman Teens of Denial follows. Perfume Genius took five spots as well, split across a couple eccentric, ambitious chamber pop albums.
