VOTE FOR YOUR TOP FIVE ALBUMS!!
This thread is now into its 9th year. Clearly I’ve nothing better to do.
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.
1. Grace Cummings - Storm Queen
2. Blood Red Shoes - Ghosts On Tape
3. Yot Club - Santolina
4. Jana Horn - Optimism
5. Aoife O’Donovan - Age Of Apathy
Hadn’t heard of Grace Cummings until this release. Thought it’s a brilliant album. Brilliant vocals and tunes and not a weak track on the album. Not too many reviews of this album overall although Pitchfork and The NME did and gave her 6.8/10 and 3/5. It’s far far stronger than those scores.
I liked the new Blood Red Shoes album but much preferred their previous. The other three on my list are albums I heard and didn’t mind too much rather than a thumbs-up as such. From the new tracks I’ve heard I’m not a Yard Act fan and won’t spend too much time listening to that.
I’ll be interested to see what’s out tomorrow and if anything will change my current top five.
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 6th February so you’ll have over a week to listen to tomorrow’s releases before choosing.
Vote now!! (Or later in the week) but make your choices clear please.
