I'm not surprised I was the only voter for Meg Bowles, but I do find it odd only 3 people beside me vote for Jlin... Didn't her previous albums do really well in these polls? I thought Autobiography was quite good too, but maybe the fact that it's a largely beatless soundtrack/mood piece made it less popular?
― Tuomas, Friday, 8 February 2019 06:47 (one week ago) Permalink
Oi Moodles, roping your nearest and dearest in to boost your favourite albums is totally against the spirit of this ;)
I was lucky enough to place 4 of my top 5! Which makes this a good year! The one that missed out, Bringing The Backline, got 98 points from 2 votes, which means that the odds of it being seen as p much the best indiepop album ever depended on whether it was being listened to inside our house or not

I know Metal is niche around here but we do take a loose definition of the word and its really a noisy/heavy rock/metal and subgenres poll which means we have nominations . It's also not US-centric at all and many non-English singing bands get in.
So if everybody could just take a wee look at the nominations and if you like anything please vote.

Yeah, despite being a huge Jlin fan I never really spent any time with this one. I think I said on her dedicated thread that it wasn't really marketed as a "Jlin album" but more a soundtrack to someone else's thing, so that made it have less urgency for me.

it was really good, I enjoyed it, but maybe the shock of the new isn't as strong as that last one and, well, her music's super and everything but I really have to be in the mood.

there are so many albums that I should have spent more time with and probably are right up my alley -- the Lotic and Vessel ones come to mind -- but I spent so much time discovering music from previous years in 2018 that I didn't catch up with all the new releases

especially in the lower half. Was there a shallow year for hip hop and bobbins stuff or did they just not vote?I haven't heard anyone say 2018 was a classic year for rock or how rock is back etc
― Friedrich B. Neechy (Oor Neechy), Saturday, 9 February 2019 15:01 (one week ago) Permalink
it was a great year for bobbins but there wasn't as much consensus as the bobbins thread itself has kinda died. partially due to lack of need for discussion when a youtube link will suffice, partially due to the most vocal and interesting posters posting less or migrating away from ILM completely, and partially through the continued splintering of dance music. "house & techno" as an umbrella term seems less relevant than ever
― karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Saturday, 9 February 2019 15:20 (one week ago) Permalink
I wasn't on the metal thread (or ilx) from about march until this poll rollout so I have no idea if the rolling thread thought it was a great year but I think there's a good chance what has happened in bobbins thread has happened on metal thread as A) it always looked dead and several high profile rolling thread posters and voters say they aren't voting in metal poll this year.
― Friedrich B. Neechy (Oor Neechy), Saturday, 9 February 2019 15:25 (one week ago) Permalink
I think some of the older posters have either lost interest in metal or have lost interest in current metal and only listen to new releases by bands they already like or just listen to classic stuff.Age catches up with metallers just like it catches up on some clubbers.

metal thread didn't feel quite as active this year as last, but as recently as last year, i believe it was the most active rolling thread ... at least in terms of posting new songs that ulysses (is ulysses the mega-Spotify playlist master? i can't remember) was tracking.
