The 2018 DIS forum user album of the year POLL THREAD


#1

Here’s the DIS forum user poll. What I need you to do is give your top five albums in this format:

  1. The artist who released your favourite album of 2018 - Name of album
  2. The artist who released your 2nd favourite album of 2018 - Name of album
  3. You get the idea
  4. etc
  5. The artist who released your 5th favourite album of 2018 - Name of album

Please use this format, anything else just makes my life more difficult than it needs to be. I will also only take the first list provided. So if you post a list up and then decide you want to swap positions 2 and 3, and exchange the 5th one for something else that’s all fine, but it won’t be included in the results so try and get it right first time if you can.

It’s also better if all discussion goes somewhere else so this is just a thread of lists. I’ll start another thread for AOTY discussions.

And at the start of January I’ll crunch the data and we can find out which albums DIS users really liked.

Here’s what happened in the last few years …

Protomartyr pipped it last year:

David Bowie smashed it in 2016:

He got more than 50% more points than Radiohead and Nick Cave. And nearly 3 times as many points as Car Seat Headrest in 4th place. A comprehensive victory for David. 1 David Bowie - Black Star 2 Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool 3 Nick Cave - Skeleton Tree 4 car seat headrest: Teens Denial 5 Frank Ocean - Blond(e) 6 Angel…
