I listened to it yesterday. I was wary beforehand because of the title but then I saw the genre tag electropop. I definitely enjoyed it.

Fine, because legalism rules interference without concession, I listened to one more record that my wife bought that came out this year to make 15.

1. Tame Impala: Currents - 15
2. Mute Math: Vitals - 14
3. Lord Huron: Strange Trails - 13
4. Penguin Prison: Lost In New York - 11
5. Smallpools: Lovetap! - 10
6. The Wombats: Glitterbug - 9
7. El Vy: Return To The Moon - 8
8. Strange Names: Use Your Time Wisely - 7
9. Avid Dancer: 1st Bath - 7
10. Coldplay: A Head Full Of Dreams - 1
11. My Morning Jacket: The Waterfall - 1
12. Neon Indian: Vega International Night School - 1
13. Bad Suns: Language and Perspective - 1
14. Passion Pit: Kindred - 1
15. Adele: 25 - 1

Am I still disqualified?

Every year someone comes into this thread acting the martyr about their particular listening style. If you're such a purist about your listening habits, what the hell would you care if they show up on a random forum list?

Revised List:

1. Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness (15)
2. Lady Lamb The Beekeeper - After (1)
3. Waxahatchee - Ivy Tripp (15)
4. Tame Impala - Currents (15)
5. Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear (15)
6. Sharon Van Etten - I Don't Want To Let You Down EP (1)
7. Hop Along - Painted Shut (1)
8. Holly Herndon - Platform (1)
9. Jlin - Dark Energy (1)
10. Royal Headache - High (15)
11. Purity Ring - Another Eternity (15)
12. Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Sit (1)
13. Jenny Hval - Apocalypse, Girl (1)
14. Blur - The Magic Whip (1)
15. Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell (2)


That should fix it. Adds up to 100 and there's a two pointer to make sure Sufjan wins this thing.

I gotta be honest, there's something a little icky about people giving more points to titles lower on their list, if I'm reading the above correctly. This poll should be passionate but not so political.

I don't even know if they have a list like this in the movie section of the forum, but I watch like three new movies a year and would never pretend that I should be included in such a vote. I might make a post (as others in this very thread have!) noting the couple of albums I enjoyed and that would be that. I might even use the thread to see what good albums I missed (like pretty much everyone in here has at times in the past!). To each his own, though. Tourist, your list is in.

Strategic voting, man. Get with it or see your favorite album get left in the dust!!!

Martyr? LOL!

I think my whole point is that my list very likely wouldn't make a difference anyway in that in its original form, only one album had been voted on by anyone else. Which means, if this goes how I believe it went in years past, those other 8 records would not show up on the final list because they wouldn't have been voted on by more than one person anyway (this was the case in at least one of these if not more). All forcing me to add additional albums to the list did was artificially prop up a couple albums that might actually be on the final list.

Or just post an unranked list. Why was that so difficult for you to do?

Tried to listen to this at work yesterday. Couldn't finish it, but it is damn good and very much in my wheelhouse.

Why should my list matter less than yours? Because I didn't buy a streaming subscription and spend hundreds of hours listening to stuff I wasn't interested in? How many people participate in this thing anyway? I knew there was a reason I stepped away from interference for a few months. Now I remember.

PFan, please remove my list. It's obviously not wanted.

B&C's 2015 Albums of the Year AKA The One Time A Year Peef Uses Math

Don't be an arse.
The first frickin post mentions the rules to THIS thread.
If you want to list your 6 favourite albums of 2015 or 4 favourite albums of 2004 or 12 favourite farm animals, just start another thread.
Simple.

I think I've only listened to just under 20 albums that have been released this year. I don't really care enough about them to want me to participate in this year's edition... (I'm sure Tame Impala and Beach House will poll pretty well regardless).

While I am impressed at people who chalk up listening to more than 50 new albums from 2015 (on top of any discoveries from previous years), I personally only feel comfortable assessing my appreciation of an album with a minimum of 4 listens. I don't feel qualified enough otherwise. Hats off to any assessors/rank masters who can become intimate enough with so many albums in a pretty short timeframe.

Thanks!
