Still haven't checked out that Janes record. There is quite a few like that every year, it would make my top 10 or whatever but i didn't get into it until the following year because I was so behind.

Diamond Eyes and The Resistance are prime examples from 2010. They would likely be #3 and 4 if I made my list again.

I really want to hear the Gillian Welch, Girls, and Blackfield albums. Oh, Paul Simon too.

what's the point of asking what the point of waiting is?

The point of waiting was so that RM's ever-vibrant community could have a lively discussion of placing.
