ILM's 2017 End of Year Tracks & Albums Poll / NOMINATIONS THREAD

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Welcome to the 2017 edition of our annual year-end poll!

We're sticking with the max of 30 nominations since that worked out well the previous five years. You can split that down with middle with 15 albums and 15 tracks, or you can break down that number in any way that satisfies you (all albums, all tracks, or any other split that adds up to 30). Things to keep in mind when you nominate, especially if you don't do it all at once:

Label your TRACKS nominations and your ALBUMS nominations. gr80, seandalai, and I hear a whole bunch of music, but we're not familiar with everything. This helps us out a great deal.

Format your nominations in this order:
Artist - Track
Artist - Album

(ALWAYS artist first. NEVER Track - Artist or Album - Artist... not only is this an archivist's nightmare, but it's more busywork for us when trying to make a proper nominations list.)

So, now nominations are open! They will close at 7pm EST on Friday, January 5, 2018 (that's midnight for the Britishes and 4pm for our friends on the left coast of the US). Shortly thereafter, the voting thread will appear as if by magic.

Please ctrl+f the thread or check the spreadsheets linked below before submitting your nominations. We may not catch all the doubles that pop up, but we try.

Also, do not embed Youtube videos in this thread. Links will be fine. forks/ulysses is maintaining Spotify playlists to keep up with all the music that is available for streaming on that service and Youtube playlists for music that isn't.

Just a thought but shouldn't the Young Marco 'Welcome to Paradise' compilation be down as just one nomination rather than two? It was released as two volumes on vinyl (both out at the sane time) but also as one 21 track digital release. Would seem a bit odd voting for one over the other

It's gonna be later before I'll have a chance to update the spreadsheets (not before nominations close in 90 minutes), so after that happens it will be a great time for people to hash things like this out, point out things that were missing prior to the last update, and pick out duplicate nominations for me to remove.

Jute Gyte alreasy nominated

My fault if Jute Gyte was already nom’d, didnt see the album on here. Has a better chance in the metal poll but I love it and wanted to give it a shot in this one.

Jute Gyte was nominated but doesn't appear in the albums spreadsheet, unless I'm missing it somehow.

Anyway, the spreadsheets are updated now: 1386 tracks, 1117 albums

Go through them, see if anything's missing, see if I missed any duplicates. My eyes are about crossed at this point, so the help is appreciated.

*I did remove The Weeknd's "Starboy" due to the fact it placed in last year's top 77.

playlists are done as well. Going to start a "Lobby for your picks" thread shortly with links and info.

'Bobby' by Alex G is listed twice in the tracks spreadsheet, once under (Sandy) Alex G.

Goddamnit, I swear I saw LJ nominate 'Oviri'! I resolve to keep my mouth shut more in 2018.

I nominated a track off it! And *what* a track :)

A handful of spreadsheet corrections (ignoring punctuation, and vs &, etc):

- rows 890 and 891 are dupes
- row 1109, the correct title is Sugar For The Pill (Avalon Emerson's Gilded Escalation)

- row 57, the correct title is Dedicated to Bobby Jameson
- row 201, Cupcakke should say cupcakKe
- row 381, there's a rogue 'e' in Cassiopeia that needs deleting (although Hannah Peel should def produce the next Cassie record!)
- rows 715 and 716 are dupes
- rows 846 and 847 are dupes

oh and
- row 906, the correct title is Glitchy Snake Gifs ;-)
