**VOTE FOR TWO ALBUMS**
Vote for your favourite album and also runner up the album of the month. Make your selections clear please as it makes tallying up the scores easier. If you list a whole bunch of albums without making your selections clear I'll take the first two mentioned as 1st and 2nd place. Sorry to be a pedant.
Your album of the month will get two points and 2nd placed album one point. If you name only one album I'll give that two points.
I've noticed that on occasions there's a Facebook post of this thread. On a few occasions last year I think the Facebook votes changed the AOTM compared to votes here alone. If it's acceptable I'll only give Facebook people one vote which will only get one point. It's an attempt to weight the scoring heavier in the favour of DiS users that take the time and effort to vote and discuss the albums released rather than just naming/listing artists that I've seen on the FB post. Hopefully, the end result will much more reflect the opinions of actual DiS users.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I'll keep this thread open until Sunday 4th October and so you'll have over a week (nine days) to listen to tomorrow's (technically today's looking at the time) releases before choosing.
Vote now!! (Or later in the week) but make your 1st and 2nd choices clear please.
1. Ryan Adams - 1989
2. Blank Realm - Illegals In Heaven
I won't repeat myself with regards to my AOTM. I really like the covers album as well as the original hugely as I said on the Ryan Adams 1989 thread.
The Blank Realm album was a revelation. I heard their previous one that had great reviews. I've not read many reviews of this album at all actually. Shame, as it's brilliant. Definitely worth checking out. Here's the best song on the album although it's not representative of the album as a whole:
