DiS Users' December 2019 Album Of The Month


I’ve often wanted to award points to my 4th and 5th favourites especially on strong months for releases and wasn’t able due to my own rules and they end up as honourable mentions.

Vote for your favourite five albums. Make your selections clear please as it makes tallying up the scores easier. If you list a whole bunch of albums without making your selections clear I’ll take the first five mentioned as 1st, 2nd,3rd, 4th and 5th. No joint positions please. Sorry to be a pedant.

Your album of the month will get five points, 2nd placed album four points, 3rd placed album three points, 4th placed album two points and 5th one point. If you name only one album I’ll give that five points. If you name two albums I’ll score them with five and four points etc. You get the message.

My choices:

  1. Camila Cabello - Romance
  2. The Comet Is Coming - The Afterlife

A quiet month. It’s December. Cabello’s debut was an absolutely brilliant pop record. The new one is good but nowhere near as good as the first. Finally saw The Comet Is Coming; great live and a very good record.

Always a lot of great recommendations from you guys about albums that I’ve missed or overlooked.

Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 5th January and so you’ll have a while to choose your favourites.

Vote now!! (Or later in the week) but make your choices clear please.
