ILM's 2010s Tracks & Albums Decade Poll / VOTING THREAD

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Voting is open until 11:59pm GMT on the 5th of August.

Vote here: https://forms.gle/Tb5gHJj3qzqZZvtM6

Enter your tracks and album ballots (up to 50 items on each), one item per line, in the appropriate fields. Please copy each line directly from the nominations lists; do not number your ballot.

Write-ins (for anything missing from the nominations list) are allowed, though not really encouraged.

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 100 points, the second receives 98 points, and so on, until the 50th item receives 2 points.

(2) Unweighted: Each item on your ballot receives 51 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 100 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 51 minus the number of items in the weighted portion (this is so that any weighted, unweighted or mixed ballot consisting of 50 items will allocate a total of exactly 2550 points).

stoked 4 the madness, ty for getting this sorted

imago, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 10:38 (one month ago) link

Love that there are album links for virtually everything, Spotify or otherwise. Nice work.

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 11:22 (one month ago) link

there's still a few that were impossible to meaningfully track down & some that are only partially on youtube etc.

ufo, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 11:28 (one month ago) link

holy shit I didn't see the extent of providing links for everything

imago, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 11:43 (one month ago) link

So, uh, none of my nominations made it to the list? Three albums were nominated by other posters, but these five just weren't added

Slow Six - Tomorrow Becomes You
Autre ne Veut - Autre ne Veut
Animal Collective - Centipede Hz
Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer
John Luther Adams - Become Ocean

Frederik B, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 11:55 (one month ago) link

great job ufo

nxd, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 14:41 (one month ago) link

Amazing work already ufo. Thanks for all your efforts.

No idea how I'm going to get a list ready for this. Albums shouldn't be too hard, but tracks is going to be impossible.

kitchen person, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 14:45 (one month ago) link

This is awesome. Thank you so much

gman59, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 15:38 (one month ago) link

Thanks ufo - really looking fwd to this.

Typo in the tracks spreadsheet: Modern Kosmology - 'C'est Le Vent' should be by Modern Cosmology - my error when nominating, sorry.

I thought that Broken Flowers by Danny L Harle had been nommed as a track but apparently this was an album! Possibly will manage to find 50 other tracks to vote for despite this major setback

technopolis, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 16:57 (one month ago) link

broken flowers is a great ep if you haven't checked the rest out!

nxd, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 17:02 (one month ago) link

there's a track FROM that EP nominated too, just saying ;)

imago, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 18:58 (one month ago) link

(that is in fact a (fairly radical) remix of BF the song!)

imago, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 19:04 (one month ago) link

Wow! Amazing. Thank you for doing this!

ernestp, Thursday, 14 July 2022 00:01 (one month ago) link

Yeah, echoing the thanks for doing this.

I'll definitely try and get a ballot in, although seems quite daunting (especially for tracks) but very much looking forward to the rollout.

groovypanda, Thursday, 14 July 2022 06:46 (one month ago) link

I did a quick scan of songs I wanted to shortlist from the noms and it came up to over 200 tracks... this is gonna be tough!

Roz, Thursday, 14 July 2022 08:10 (one month ago) link

sorry about that, if i have missed any more (which i'm sure there's a handful i have) please let me know

Thanks for adding them! And thanks for doing this! :)

― Roz,

Yeah, I've given up for now on tracks. I was already up to a hundred plus and I wasn't even half way through the alphabet.

kitchen person, Thursday, 14 July 2022 14:41 (one month ago) link

thanks so much for the playlists, ufo <3

brimstead, Thursday, 14 July 2022 14:55 (one month ago) link

i made a list at the tail end of 2019, which i'm prob just gonna stick with.

maybe in another decade i'll switch it up lol

(also, ugh, I made a mistake: it’s DJ Sumbody ft. Tira, Thebe & Emza – Ayepyep)

big movers, hot steppers + long shaker intros (breastcrawl), Thursday, 14 July 2022 15:57 (one month ago) link

very sorry for the inconvenience - I'm aware that it's an incredible lot of work you've taken on, and it's hugely appreciated!

big movers, hot steppers + long shaker intros (breastcrawl), Thursday, 14 July 2022 15:59 (one month ago) link

^ I don't think those have been overlooked as such. Just that the final few days of nominations are yet to be added to playlists. I suspect ufo just needs a spare moment.

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Saturday, 16 July 2022 03:25 (one month ago) link

yeah the last lot of tracks haven't been added to the playlist yet, getting to that soon now that it's the weekend

ufo, Saturday, 16 July 2022 05:49 (one month ago) link

apologies for jumping the gun there, ufo. it should have occurred to me that you simply hadn’t gotten to it yet.

big movers, hot steppers + long shaker intros (breastcrawl), Saturday, 16 July 2022 08:57 (one month ago) link

it's fine, i'd been slow at getting around to that last bit, but it's done now

6 ballots so far

ufo, Saturday, 16 July 2022 12:40 (one month ago) link

thank you!

one more request: could you please add the video for Olu Maintain’s “Nawti” to the YouTube playlist? the “Nawti” that’s on Spotify is an instrumental remix, the actual song is not on there (although there is a “Nawti - Instrumental” that is the actual instrumental track without any unnecessary sax embellishments)

big movers, hot steppers + long shaker intros (breastcrawl), Saturday, 16 July 2022 13:06 (one month ago) link

done!

✖✖✖ (Moka), Sunday, 17 July 2022 16:49 (four weeks ago) link

I thought albums would be my easy ballot, but I scrolled through the big list last night and just gave up. I'm glad the voting period is so lengthy, because I'm going to need it. I haven't even looked at tracks yet.

Ⓓⓡ. (Johnny Fever), Sunday, 17 July 2022 17:05 (four weeks ago) link

Interesting that there's some tracks missing from the noms which made it into our top 10s in the past.

Will be interesting to see in the final results if we end up with tracks which didn't appear at all in the top 77 of their respective years.

ufo, Tuesday, 19 July 2022 04:07 (four weeks ago) link

I def plan on getting to it before the deadline, but appreciate the reminders (as it’s not top of mind when I sit down to work)

“Lawman,” Slick (Grunt) (morrisp), Tuesday, 19 July 2022 04:13 (four weeks ago) link

i voted a few days ago but didn't announce it in here. excited for this. I feel like I was on the front lines for this decade

gman59, Tuesday, 19 July 2022 15:12 (four weeks ago) link

hello ufo, many thanks for the time and energy you have put into this. i voted just now but had to add in my #2 album which although nominated does not appear on the spreadsheet. i hope this does not cause you any problems and the album in question is unlikely to trouble the top 200 so it's not a big deal.

oscar bravo, Tuesday, 19 July 2022 15:31 (four weeks ago) link

it looks like this nominated album is missing from the nominations list:

Yamantaka // Sonic Titan - UZU

silverfish, Tuesday, 19 July 2022 16:09 (four weeks ago) link

I voted. What a ridiculous endeavor this was. It was a fun exercise to spend time listening to a bunch of stuff I put on my year end lists throughout the decade.

silverfish, Tuesday, 19 July 2022 20:45 (four weeks ago) link

I'm trying to get through the Spotify playlist, even with skips it's going to be a close thing.

Sudden Birdnet Thus (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 19 July 2022 20:56 (four weeks ago) link

Culled my singles ballot (which is to say, my sole ballot) down to 70 titles.

Bait Kush (Eric H.), Tuesday, 19 July 2022 21:23 (four weeks ago) link

write-ins are fine and i will add anything nominated missing to the nominations list if you let me know that i missed it

ufo, Tuesday, 19 July 2022 23:06 (four weeks ago) link

Got my tracks ballot worked out but still have albums yet to go. I think that one is gonna be a bit harder

Vinnie, Tuesday, 19 July 2022 23:08 (four weeks ago) link

Often if I hear an album first I end up loving a particular song, and then am mystified when a different song is picked as a single and everyone likes it.

President Keyes, Friday, 12 August 2022 13:59 (four days ago) link

Sorry I didn't vote. It's been an epic couple of weeks.

No purposes. Sounds. (Sund4r), Friday, 12 August 2022 14:01 (four days ago) link

so, after going through everything, is Courtney Barnett's "Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit" the best album title of the decade?

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 12 August 2022 14:04 (four days ago) link

I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside

peace, man, Friday, 12 August 2022 14:14 (four days ago) link

that is also a very good one!

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 12 August 2022 14:16 (four days ago) link

This feels less like a quest to find the best album title of the 2010s and more a quest to find the most unrelentingly miserable

Sorry everybody, I partied a bit too hard last night and didn’t get any work done yesterday or this morning, but we’re getting there.

Depending on how much I advance tonight I’ll confirm of rollout starts on Monday around 11pm est

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 12 August 2022 18:39 (four days ago) link

11am I mean

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 12 August 2022 18:40 (four days ago) link

no need to apologize for partying hard!

brimstead, Friday, 12 August 2022 18:46 (four days ago) link

It’s actually going to be 100+1, since #101 has the same points as #100 but I’m using number of votes as tie-breakers. I feel bad leaving #101 out on a technicality.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 12 August 2022 18:48 (four days ago) link

would be just perfect if #101 would turn out to be “212”

Excuse me for party rocking.

President Keyes, Friday, 12 August 2022 19:29 (four days ago) link

sorry, but that song wasn’t nominated

big movers, hot steppers + long shaker intros (breastcrawl), Friday, 12 August 2022 19:41 (four days ago) link

iirc we didn't nominate Party Rock Anthem in its eligible EOY poll either

lmfao indeed

ppl complained as if it was a shoo-in

dyl, Friday, 12 August 2022 21:32 (four days ago) link

"gangnam style" did get nominated though and it's just a slightly better rip of "party rock anthem" really

ufo, Friday, 12 August 2022 21:42 (four days ago) link

should do this

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 12 August 2022 21:44 (four days ago) link

never mind it's too late no?

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 12 August 2022 21:45 (four days ago) link

yeah voting closed, sorry. rollout is starting next week

ufo, Friday, 12 August 2022 21:46 (four days ago) link

I did think about nominating "Party Rock Anthem". If I had, I don't think it would have made my final ballot though tbh

Vinnie, Saturday, 13 August 2022 02:26 (three days ago) link

Hi everyone!

So I’m at 65% of the tracks images, I’ll have them complete by Monday no problem…
However, I still need to do the text / bbcode and search for blurbs for each one and that takes more time than I’ll have from Mo-We because it’s a bit of a hectic week for me and I don’t want to have long spans of not posting, I usually like posting every 8/10 mins so I can post results in a spam of 3 hours every day.

There’s 3 options:

1. I start posting on Tuesday. Finish the top 20 on Saturday instead of Friday.

2. I start posting on Monday without blurbs, maybe I can start adding them for 80-01.

3. I start posting Monday 22nd.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Saturday, 13 August 2022 21:51 (three days ago) link

I vote for 1 or 2 (but defer to you). Thanks for your work on this, Moka!

Panda bear, my gentle friend (morrisp), Saturday, 13 August 2022 22:27 (three days ago) link

Vote 2! No to Saturday final day. Will accept hybrid option where we get 25 a day from Tuesday

ban, buddy (imago), Saturday, 13 August 2022 22:40 (three days ago) link

If I were to take on a big task like this I wouldn’t want to start until I’m good and ready, so take your time I say. 1: only if you can make it, 2: no, 3: why not? this is about a whole decade - what’s another week?

big movers, hot steppers + long shaker intros (breastcrawl), Saturday, 13 August 2022 22:44 (three days ago) link

Thank you!

Alright, saturday is off!

I’ll do my best to post at least 15 on Monday or go blurb-less for the first batch and then I’ll catch up.

In case of fire we’ll jump to the 22nd.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Saturday, 13 August 2022 23:03 (three days ago) link

when tt and i ran the 00's, tt did the images but i did all the bbcode, text, blurb etc stuff, ufo is shirking imo lol

ban, buddy (imago), Sunday, 14 August 2022 09:41 (two days ago) link

tbf i got around this by not doing blurbs, and demanding the thread's live reactions to suffice

ban, buddy (imago), Sunday, 14 August 2022 09:44 (two days ago) link

to be clear i originally offered to do that part too (& am still happy to do whatever's necessary there)

ufo, Sunday, 14 August 2022 09:52 (two days ago) link

poor moka grafting away while you sip daiquiris

ban, buddy (imago), Sunday, 14 August 2022 09:56 (two days ago) link

that said i did do the spotify stuff for the 00's and that was definitely the most gruelling part yeah

ban, buddy (imago), Sunday, 14 August 2022 14:45 (two days ago) link

Moka, you're not doing the bbcode by hand I hope? If you have everything in a spreadsheet, any decent text editor can generate the right tags for you.

ArchCarrier, Sunday, 14 August 2022 16:06 (two days ago) link

1 vote for no blurbs at all.

oscar bravo, Sunday, 14 August 2022 16:29 (two days ago) link

I still have one week of vacation so I'm happy with either option 1 and 2
