Last one of the year.
Vote for your favourite album and also your second and third choices. 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 three mentioned as 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. No joint positions please. Sorry to be a pedant.
Your album of the month will get three points, 2nd placed album two points and 3rd placed album one point. If you name only one album I’ll give that three points. If you name two albums I’ll score them with three and two points accordingly.
James Holden & The Animal Spirits - The Animal Spirits
Exploded View - Summer Came Early
Converge - The Dusk In Us
Charlotte Gainsbourg - Rest
Mavis Staples - If All I Was Was Black
A brilliant album by James Holden. Probably will be in my Top 10 of the year. Something new with each listen. Never heard of him before the reviews of this album. Glad I gave it a listen after the general praise for the album.
Really loved the Exploded View EP. Hopefully, a full album out next year.
Converge was just fun.
A good Charlotte Gainsbourg album but unfortunately nowhere good as IRM which was fantastic.
Mavis Staples’ is just a great fun old school soul record.
I’ll check out tomorrow’s releases to see if there’s anything that will change my choices. The Beach House rarities/b-sides compilation will be interesting. Not sure that else is released tomorrow.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 3rd December 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.
