Definitely, and I'd say that this is pretty fair. Happy for these two to go at it for top spot, without necessarily being a massive fan of either. Both are heaps better than the Macklemore.

I'd usually vote about 5 songs from the list and add another 5 of my own, but I've come to feel that there isn't much point in voting songs that aren't on the JJJ list. You might as well throw your votes and something that might make an impact.

I'd love to see National fare well, but I actually think that they may struggle to feature anywhere higher than 75. Votes could very well be diluted across Graceless, Demons, Sea of Love and Don't Swallow the Cap. There hasn't been one dominant song.

Graceless has had a surprisingly heavy amount of airplay, but yeah, not sure if it will help it.

Generally Triple J don't play 'old' people, and I wasn't sure if the National might not have passed that invisible line when this new album showed up. For example they stopped playing the Cure (deservedly or otherwise) in 2000, new Pearl Jam in the mid 2000s, etc etc.

I'm really not sure what to do this year. Normally I do similar, with about six from their list and four write-ins, trying to stick closely to my actual top songs. Looks like I'll need a different strategy this time around since it seems what I've loved the most has passed Triple J by. I've had a lengthy playlist of favourite 2013 songs for a while, and I just made a top twenty from it. Literally one of those twenty songs is in Triple J's list ("Recover" by Chvrches). Two more artists are there for different songs; I can understand why "It All Feels Right" appears for Washed Out rather than "All I Know", but I'm mystified why the only song for Yuck is "Middle Sea" rather than lead single "Rebirth".

Writing in pretty much my entire list would be a totally pointless endeavour. So I may instead settle for making a top ten of what Triple J's got, even if it's totally unrepresentative of my actual top songs.

I aim to not do any write-ins this year, but we'll see how we go.

Riptide has been fucking everywhere. I'm really hoping Get Lucky will get the top spot. Would be my fav #1 since One Crowded Hour, and deserving, like Somebody I Used To Know.

I've made my picks for the first time ever, even though the range of entries was only shared by half a dozen or so artists, not particularly diverse but there was not much I liked outside of the albums I had already heard this year.

I never vote in this, I was just making conversation.

You're telling me you don't love Kingswood?

A couple of ASIO agents will be at your doorstep in a few minutes to deport you.

If I ever met the members of Kingswood, I'm pretty sure a fight would ensue.

I once saw them at some big New Year's Eve gig. I thought I'd walked in on a bad Led Zep tribute band.

You'll be surprised and shocked to learn I didn't watch much of their set.

Are these Kingswood guys to Led Zep what Airbourne are to AC/DC?

Fair comparison, but still not quite as blatant

Kingswood are sort of like a less interesting Wolfmother. Which is not a compliment.

I look forward to this thread every year because it reminds me that things could always be wise.

Riptide is annoying as shit.

I'm having such a hard time trying to convince people that it's not that fucking good. In the best 10 songs of the year? Are you kidding me? Any long-haired bearded idiot with an acoustic guitar could write it. And he signed a five fucking album deal with Atlantic on the back of it.
