I honestly would've been totally fine with that. While I do think it's awesome Deafheaven got #1, not only because I love the record, but nobody would've thought before Sunbather came out that it'd be so critically acclaimed. So while I'm cool with Sunbather being #1, it would've also been cool for Nails to be #1, because while it did get a lot of love, it's a bit more of an underdog story, kinda like when Vektor beat Mastodon in 2011.
