After the storming success of the two previous years and the amount of moaning at the restricted selections of the official DiS album of the year poll I've decided to do this yet again. Instructions:
List your top five albums of the year. Any albums as long as they were released in 2007. Put them in order if you're that way inclined and #1 will score 5 points, #2 will score 4 points etc. If you can't/won't put them in order they'll all score 3 points. I'll total up all the points to find the DiSers top 50 albums of the year. Feel free to list more than five albums but note only the first five you list will score points.
And yes, I know it's still only 2nd December so I'll leave this open until January if you feel you need to give albums that have just been released/will be released in December a fair go. It's all down to you people, so come January if there's any "Wut, no Pissed Jeans?" comments you'll only have yourselves to blame.
As usual, I'll go first:
1) Boxer - The National
2) 23 - Blonde Redhead
3) Armchair Apocrypha - Andrew Bird
4) The Stage Names - Okkervil River
5) Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? - Of Montreal
If you're interested, here's what the Top 50s looked like from 2005 and 2006:
