Vote for your favourite 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.
Always a lot of great recommendations from you guys about albums that I’ve missed or overlooked.
- Taylor Swift - Folklore
- The Pretenders - Hate For Sale
- Advertisement - American Advertisement
- The Chicks - Gaslighter
- Illuminati Hotties - Free I.H. : This Is Not The One You’ve Been Waiting For
Imagine if Bon Iver came on stage to a sold out Taylor Swift audience.
The Pretenders album is one of their best and it’s basically a brilliant collection of singles. The Buzz and Maybe Love Is In NYC are classic Pretenders style songs and could easily make it on any of their Best Of albums. Definitely worth checking out.
I hadn’t heard of Advertisement before this album. Sort of a country tinged Okkervil River sound and I enjoy the repeat listens to this whilst walking around in the sun. Excellent album.
The Chicks is a fun county pop album and Illuminati Hotties is a short but very sweet album.
My top three makes July a very strong month for me.
I’ll adjust/add to my choices after tomorrow’s releases maybe. Not sure what’s out tomorrow apart from The Naked And The Famous.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 9th August and 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.
