Rate the music of the year out of ten, based on the albums, singles, gigs, whatever that stand out for you that year. Non-musical nostalgia is welcome in the thread but that’s beside the point of the poll.
Everyone may nominate one album and one song from the year which will then be collated into side-polls on the final day of the thread (in one week) - please make it clear when you post, e.g
Nominate Album: Artist - Title
Nominate Song: Artist - Title
Otherwise feel free to just spam the thread with chat about as much music from the year as you like.
Probably the first year for a significant number of great albums that align with my personal tastes.
I’ll mention a few albums I love but maybe aren’t the really obvious ones
