B&C's Best Albums of 2012

Reposting Peef's rules from last year. Let's light this candle. I'll try to get my list up later today.

Here's the tally rules:
- You list your top 15 albums.
- You distribute 100 points up among those 15 albums however you see fit. You cannot exceed 15 points for a single album, however.

This is, of course, about more than just making lists. This is about everyone talking about their favorite music. You can make your lists longer than 15 albums while still ranking the top 15. You can post your favorite songs, all that good stuff. Just talk about all the awesome musical shit that went down in 2011 2012 and you'll be good to go.

Now, there's no rush. I don't think I tallied it up last year until towards the end of January, because people are still listening to the things they heard this year (I am too), and are still discovering albums they missed.

Go.

...and just to clarify the rules for the final tally.

Tiebreakers are number of votes. If you had the same amount of points, the list with the most appearances in lists gets the tiebreaker.

Let's do this.

If you were within knife range, I'd show you how to really make a final cut due to your leaving Nocturne off.

I just listened to Nocturne all the way through again. It's really good, but I stand by my decision. Who knows, if I'm still listening to it a year from now I may change my mind.
