2021 FBG Album Poll - It's Back!! - Feb 10 Deadline (1 Viewer)

Northern Voice

Footballguy
This is dependent on getting enough lists in to be worthwhile. I will run it either way but if we only get a few lists, the sample won't be as meaningful and I'll do a pretty short countdown. 

Deadline is Thursday February 10th. Countdown will be Friday February 11th

***Album suggestions, recommendations, song samples welcome/encouraged in this thread. PMing lists to me is strongly encouraged vs. posting them here, so there is some drama in the big reveal. 

Help in getting the vote out is appreciated.

Good times!
I'll do this... I have 30 albums on my short list with a clear #1 and a straightforward top 5... after that it gets murky. I keep saying this, but I think this is the year I finally go with example 2 for my rankings.

I think I'm in. I got to listening to some end-of-year stuff for the 2021 end-of-year draft and it was good, but I haven't spent enough time with those albums to be really confident in their placement. 

I'll give a listen and a holler.

I got caught up with other stuff. I think I won't be submitting a list. Ten is probably too many, which means I shouldn't be submitting one anyway.

My list has been submitted.  To be clear, I consider it in no way definitive as I really barely even pay attention to specific albums, but these are albums that I think are good and that I am aware of mainly based on individual songs that I heard and that came out during 2021 .

 
List submitted.  I'd also like to clarify I listened to fewer albums this year than the previous handful.  On top of that, I felt that of those albums I did listen to, very few impressed me in the gestalt.  The majority of my list are albums that contained a couple of songs I really liked and very few that I felt were consistently above average throughout.  Maybe I'm just getting old or maybe the art of putting together a collection of songs as an "album" is becoming obsolete, but that's my impression from this past year.

Thanks for handling, NV!
