The 2022 DIS Album of the Year Polling thread.

Nearly December? Better get on this.

It’s the annual DIS poll thread, usual business … I need you to give me your favourite 5 albums of the year in the following format:

  1. Name of artist who released your favourite album of 2022: Name of album.
  2. Name of artist who released your 2nd favourite album of 2022: Name of album.
  3. Etc
  4. And so on
  5. Name of artist who released your 5th favourite album of 2022: Name of album

At the start of the New Year I’ll collate the results and we can see what really floats DISs’ boat.

As usual a few ‘rules’:

  • I’ll only take the first list provided per user. There’s plenty of time to submit, so no rush.
  • Please try and use the format of nomination I’ve asked for (1. Name of band: Name of album).
  • No discussion in the thread. I’ll set up another thread for all discussion to go in.

Those three things really make my life easier when collating the results. Thanks!

If you want to see what happened last year results are here:

If you want to see the polling thread from last year it’s here:

(And if you are really bored at work you can follow the links in those thread to find the last 8 or 9 years of results since I’ve been doing this).

I think that’s all. Happy listing everyone.
