    vinyl lovers

    If you were disappointed with the original vinyl version of the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack (I know I was), this has literally just gone on sale on the Mondo website: https://mondotees.com/products/copy-of-blade-runner-2049-original-motion-picture-soundtrack-2xlp
  2. Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, as much for the music as the game - I still listen to the brilliant Amon Tobin soundtrack.
  3. The Be With reissue of this arrived earlier this week (I wasn’t expecting it for another month) and it sounds wonderful!
  4. I think that must be something else - this is the one I meant: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/playlist/whats-good/pl.ef163c4af2d9486380b0fd9b60f8b272
  5. A few years ago my main source of new music was the RLLMUK poll and the annual Great Escape festival in Brighton. Now, though, it’s RLLMUK and a set of Apple Music playlists which update most weeks with interesting new stuff - Untitled, Midnight City, 6 Music and Pitchfork’s What’s Good. Because of this, I hardly read any music journalism any more except for the Quietus, Consequence of Sound and FACT. What does everyone else use to find out about new stuff?
  6. Does everyone think 10 albums is enough? Should it be 15? I think 6 or 7 voters had a list of honourable mentions in addition to their top 10.
  7. Thank you all, again, to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. This is the 14th year in a row of doing this, and the list-formatting crimes have dwindled to the point where they cause only the most imperceptible of eyerolls. There was one comment about perhaps placing a sticky for the poll in OT in future. I'm not sure about this - I quite like the fact that the poll is a self-selecting group drawn only from the Music folder. Remember the bad old days, when people thought it was somehow acceptable to vote for Coldplay? The sample size is large enough to produce at least 20 new albums I would be interested in listening to - what does everyone think? I've posted the whole list here - there were 283 albums voted for in all (286 last year, 273 the year before). If enough people want to query the results or look at the raw data, then I'll upload the spreadsheet. I usually miss some near-duplicates or votes where someone got the artist and the title the wrong way round, so please feel free to point out any inconsistencies if it affects anything in the top 50. Just for reference (I always look them up when I post the results), you can find results from previous years by using the albumsoftheyear tag. So, here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. Rank - Artist - Album [Total number of votes] [Total points] 1 - IDLES - Joy as an Act of Resistance [5] [34] 2 - Daniel Avery - Song For Alpha [4] [33] 3 - Jon Hopkins - Singularity [6] [31] 4 - Low - Double Negative [4] [30] 4 - Snail Mail - Lush [4] [30] 6 - Daughters - You Won’t Get What You Want [4] [25] 7 - Skee Mask - Compro [4] [24] 8 - Parquet Courts - Wide Awaaaaake!
