Nice quiz, though the albums are quite American-centered. Please also accept asap rocky as correct answer (instead of a$ap rocky)

This was not the quizmaker's personal opinion - rather, it was a list by music website Pitchfork. I definitely see where you're coming from, though!

Very nice! I did notice that a lot of solo artist answers didn't accept last names only (Kamasi Washington, Kurt Vile, Mica Levi, PJ Harvey, Nicolas Jaar, Jamila Woods, Bill Callahan, maybe some others that I missed.) Todd Terje as well, but since that's a pseudonym I understand your choice to require the full name. Also, Meek Mill, Gil Scott-Heron, and Fatima Al Qadiri are misspelled. Lastly, I would recommend accepting "Alex G" for (Sandy) Alex G.
