Ballot: https://goo.gl/forms/KFue5nhEsFwWCEs32

The procedure is simple: enter your tracks and album ballots (up to 25 items on each), one item per line, in the appropriate fields below. Please copy each line directly from the nominations lists; do not number your ballot. You can choose one of three ballot types, which determine how points are allocated to each item you vote for:

(1) Weighted: The first item on your ballot receives 50 points, the second receives 48 points, and so on, until the 25th item receives 2 points.

(2) Unweighted: Each item on your ballot receives 26 points.

(3) Mixed: To submit a mixed ballot, you must divide your ballot in two with an extra blank line. The upper portion of the ballot will be treated as weighted, with the first item receiving 50 points, and so on. The lower portion will be treated as unweighted, in that all items will receive the same number of points. The score allocated to items in the unweighted portion is calculated as 26 minus the number of items in the weighted portion (this is so that any weighted, unweighted or mixed ballot consisting of 25 items will allocate a total of exactly 650 points).

Am def going to vote, still listening to a lot of nominations.

I recommend the new Lustre, who’ve dialled back their sound even further to the point where it’s finally impossible to say whether that faint static in the background are guitars of just the sound of a shower hitting the plastic curtain. Drums and vocals are also hitting new records in Metal in terms of how distant and low they are in the mix. The whole experience is like slowly falling asleep in front of a dimly glowing fire, wrapped in a fluffy blanket, holding a huge mug of hot cocoa topped with extra whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.

Forgot to vote in this main poll last year so made sure to get my ballot off right away. Cheers to the pollrunners.

Not 100% sure whether anything from Instant Classic, but this song from the Alameda Duo album is an amazibg, approximation of Bob Welch-era Fleetwood Mac

i forgot to nominate this year, a ballot with some write-in votes are ok I guess?

Siegbran, Monday, 8 January 2018 21:43 (six months ago) Permalink

I don’t make any guarantees about write-ins (if everyone did it the system would break down) but I do make an effort to count them.

Johnny, I know there was a second Spotify playlist created for album nominations since the first one got overloaded, wasn't sure if there were still two playlists for album noms but thought I'd mention it.

Dear Van Horn Street,

There was no email for you given in the ilx mail you sent, but the answer to your question is "Creating the nominations list is an imperfect exercise, and I'm sorry if I missed a nom of yours. You can still vote it as a write-in, but adding it to the main list 50% of the way through the voting period wouldn't help matters. People have already submitted ballots."

Thx,
J Feves

Johnny Fever, Friday, 12 January 2018 22:27 (six months ago) Permalink

Ah fuck I was super busy and I didn't get to nominate songs like XX - Replica or Migos - Stir Fry which I thought would be nominated for sure. Ok I'll work with what we have.

^it was also surprising to me that The XX - On Hold and Migos - Bad and Boujee weren't nominated

the trax list is full of great stuff though

Bad & Boujee made last year, was ineligible

I should listen to that. I listened to almost every other space rock album this year

I'm guessing Migos - Stir Fry could do quite well next year.

Oof. I should've listened to this Jane Weaver album before I voted.

Voted, with only a little bit of being-difficult at voting for some lusosphere stuff that wasn't nominated / voting for remixes of nominated tracks.

Zsófia Boros - Lost Objects

So I screwed this nomination up:
i) The title is Local Objects; don't know how I messed that up +
ii) it came out in Oct 2016

I doubt it will make the top 77 anyway but mea culpa.

I just want to register my disappointment, though - and I know this is my fault for not nominating - that Logic's 1-800-273-8255 and Migos' Bad and Boujee were not choices on the tracks poll. Horrible oversight IMO.

Submitted with 3 minutes to spare! god i can't wait to look at that ballot in literally a week and go "what was i DOING".

(also i had to write two tracks in - i'm sorry i just had no mental space this past month to think of things that may be forgotten, i just assumed those with better taste than me would have nominated them!)

TYTYTY for running this! :D

voted just night but just realised that i copied my album votes from a personal list and not the proper noms list (had meant to fix that but forgot). i think that most things should match but there may be a couple of things that don't exactly match. sorry, was totally my fault - happy to email a corrected version. my tracks ballot should be fine though

Frederik B, Saturday, 20 January 2018 11:04 (five months ago) Permalink

I noticed that The Clientele - Music From The Age Of Miracles is named incorrectly on the album list (because of me getting the name wrong when I nominated it). I'm not sure it's going to be an issue really, but just in case it does place, it should be Music For The Age Of Miracles.

I didn't get a confirmation either. I didn't even realize how close to the deadline I was voting last night. I've been putting it off because I liked so many albums from this year (a bunch only discovered in the last few weeks). Wasn't happy with my tracks ballot but I was avoiding voting for any from albums I voted for.
