I’ll give your first choice ten points, second choice nine points etc. also please don’t give any joint firsts, seconds etc. either as it’ll make scoring easier if each choice has a set position. Maybe it’s a blood out of stone thread but it’ll be interesting to see which albums are still in favour from thoses mentioned in the AOTM threads.

I unfortunately simply don’t have the time to count up the hundreds of albums that would be mentioned if I did a free for all six monthly vote; just those albums above please. After all it’s you guys that voted them up there. There’s over sixty albums to choose from. If this thread takes off I’ll do the counting in two weeks on Sunday 18th July

Up to ten choices please.

Really hard decision this, lots of great albums and unlike this poll last year that includes many of my favourites. Not even sure I’ve put June albums in the same order here as I did this morning as its so hard to rank them when there were so many good ones.

  1. Lost Girls - Menneskekollectivet
  2. Japanese Breakfast - Jubilee
  3. Mogwai - As the Love Continues
  4. Jane Weaver - Flock
  5. SAULT - Nine
  6. KMRU - Logue
  7. Virginia Wing - Private Life
  8. Dean Blunt - Black Metal 2
  9. Daniel Avery - Together In Static
  10. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - G_d’s Pee At STATE’S End!

Not Lana!
