Neptune Awards 2020 - Long List Nominations/Discussion

I’m happy to run this as long as nobody objects. I know @sean has ran this in the past but I know he put it off in 2019 probably due to lack of time then in the end he awarded it to Self Esteem - Compliments Please without any so called vote.

If everyone is happy I will ask you to nominate 5 British/Irish albums that had a digital release date between Saturday 20 July 2019 and Friday 17 July 2020 inclusive, in any order you like.

The Twelve albums that get the most mentions will go into a vote during the same week as the actual Mercury’s.

Please don’t nominate any Mercury nominated albums. This is an alternative prize to recognise albums the mercury panel overlooked.

I will give a deadline of the end of August to get your nominations in.
