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.
1. The Big Moon - Here Is Everything
2. Dry Cleaning - Stumpwork
3. Courtney Marie Andrews - Loose Future
4. Archers Of Loaf - Reason In Decline
5. Taylor Swift - Midnights
A good month overall for me.
Never rated The Big Moon as much as Our Girl and have seen both a few times live. Wasn’t expecting such a brilliant album from The Big Moon. The song Ladye Bay is one of the highlights.
The production’s excellent here and a slight change of style too (to my ears) springboards this one way above anything else they’ve done as well as anything else released this month.
Probably need more time with the new Dry Cleaning album but they’ve carved out their niche style and this is more of the same although it did seem less bouncy than the last but it’s not a criticism.
Really liked Courtney Marie Andrews’ country pop album. Great to see Archers Of Loaf back again. It’s no Icky Mettle but a good return. Taylor Swift’s one is ok. I’m a big fan usually but it’s somewhere between pop Swift and indie Swift and drifts somewhat.
Always a lot of great recommendations from you guys about albums that I’ve missed or overlooked. Not sure what else is out tomorrow except everyone’s least favourite boy band Blue’s new release and so I’ll see what you guys come up with.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 6th November 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.
