Rough Trade have announced their top 50 albums of the year and have teamed up with Drowned in Sound to find out what 'The People' think the best record of their top 50 is.
The People's Voice Prize features 50 albums picked by Rough Trade staff which were released in 2008. The list includes the obvious likes of TV on the Radio, Crystal Castles, Vampire Weekend, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Friendly Fires, Kings of Leon, Portishead, Foals, Last Shadow Puppets, mixed with lesser known things you might not have discovered (yet) like Vivian Girls, Zombie Zombie, Johnny Flynn, Crystal Stilts... plus plenty more.
Over the next month DiS users can vote for their favourite three albums, with the record receiving the most votes being announced on December 17th. Not only that but by voting you stand a chance of winning all 50 albums plus assorted bits from some of the nominated acts.
