Previous Albums of the Year Polls can be found in above link as well :)

Scoring System


Countdown will probably be done by me and Space Cadet!

I just wanted her to have a look at the results and calculations before starting, because I am a n00b in this and she took the initiative in the first place.


Some warming up:

  • the amount of albums is less than last year.

  • We got more voters, however, and more albums got multiple votes.

  • Only one album got more than 30 votes.

  • Anyone wants to guess the Top 5? :P

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, music lovers of the world, welcome to our countdown. :juggle:


:dance: :dance: :dance:


Albums have been created, listened to and voted on. And now thanks to the amazingness that is Wyrd, lists have been tallied, points have been awarded, and at long last a winner has emerged.


Wyrd has graciously agreed to take over the first part of the countdown, so I will step aside and hand this over to her as soon as she is ready.


Until that time, talk amongst yourselves. Who won? Who didn't live up to expectations? Who came out of nowhere? Are Coldplay still kings of the board? Anyone want to bet on the top 5? (Bonus points if you get it in order) Which albums will still be remembered 20 years from now? :gossip:


Let the countdown begin. :vanish:
