2022 FBG Year End Album Poll - Post/Send Lists, Discuss Your Faves Now (1 Viewer)

Northern Voice

Tenative deadline is January 20th.

Suggestions and discussion welcome in this thread. PMing lists to me is encouraged vs. posting them here, so there is some drama in the big reveal.

These are the rules we've used in the past, still work for everyone, or should we do some tinkering? The one thing that happens with the assigned points is one person can love an album, give it 30 points and it finds it's way into the midsection of the countdown. It puts an album "loved" by one person ahead of one that was "liked" by 3 or 4 people, which can be either a good or bad thing, depending on how you look at it. Personally, I think it adds some diversity to the chart but maybe we should roll the max per album back to 25?

- You have 200 points to distribute as you see fit among 10 to 20 albums.
- No album can be given more than 30 points
- You can also simply post your top 10-20 albums in order and they will be awarded points in a descending order from 19-1.

- You must post at least 10 albums
- Any album consisting of new/previously unreleased material released in 2018 is eligible (No reissues, compilations must be all new material)
- Live Albums must have been recorded and released in 2018
- EP's are eligible
- You can post your album rankings/points assignments here or PM them to me (PMing them to me adds some mystery as to how the final results shake out, but if some people just want to post a top 10/20 list, that's fine too).
- The more participants the better
- Let's try to keep this near the top of the page for the next couple weeks.

I haven't worked out my top in order yet. I thought the Yard Act album was going to be my wire to wire #1 for most of the year but I think Alvvays Blue Rev ultimately tops my list.

Big fan of each of these as well.

Finn's get's a bit samey but definitely one of my faves. Big Thief doesn't quite hold my attention for all 80 minutes or whatever it is but will be near the top for me. BCNR is excellent all around. And Wet Leg suffers from feels like these songs have been around forever syndrome, which arguably the two best ("Chaise Longue", "Wet Leg") were fairly prominent in 2021
Odesza - The Last Goodbye - 30
Cheekface - Too Much to Ask - 30
Danger Mouse & Black Thought - Cheat Codes - 30
Kevin Morby - This is a Photograph - 20
Bonobo - Fragments - 20
Kae Tempest - The Line is a Curve - 20
The Mountain Goats - Bleed Out - 20
Fontaines D.C. - Skinny Fia - 20
Wet Leg - Wet Leg - 5
Big Thief - Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You - 5

Pretty sure I picked these all up on vinyl this year.
