VOTE FOR YOUR TOP FIVE ALBUMS!!
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: Quite month for me. Liked these albums but nothing amazing here and spent more time listening to bands I was seeing this month rather than new releases. Having said that I’ve seen my top four live in May.
1. Sigrid - How To Let Go
2. Porridge Radio - Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder To The Sky
3. Belle and Sebastian - A Bit Of Previous
4. Warpaint - Radiate
5. Ethel Cain - Preacher’s Daughter
The Sigrid album was good fun big pop numbers.
Liked the Porridge Radio album despite their thing of the same line being repeated over and over again.
As I was going to see Belle and Sebastian live, I did revisit their new album despite finding it dull on first listen. Did improve after repeat listens but won’t be revisiting until their live dates later this year.
Both Warpaint and Ethel Cain albums were decent too. I’m expecting quiet a few votes for both those albums here.
Not sure what’s out tomorrow apart from Just Mustard who I saw live a few years ago for a few songs where Porridge Radio were the support. An album from Stars too but I haven’t heard dipped too much into them apart from their Set Yourself On Fire album from around 15 years ago.
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 June 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.
