    Best New Music of 2018

    The Daniel Avery album is fantastic. Easily my favourite of the year so far - I can hear the influence of so many great IDM pioneers but it sounds so fresh and original. It’s really hard to pick highlights but Sensation and Diminuendo are particularly special.

    What is spinning on your turntable?

    Just had this delivered via eBay (it’s banned on Discogs). It sounds absolutely fantastic!

    RLLMUK'S FAVOURITE ALBUMS OF 2017 - RESULTS!

    Assuming Matt Johnson overcomes more than a decade of writer’s block and actually gets round to making a proper The The album, instead of a triple box set soundtrack about having writer’s block which got no RLLMUK votes at all, you mean? Hopefully I’ll have figured out a solution by then...

    RLLMUK'S FAVOURITE ALBUMS OF 2017 - RESULTS!

    Thanks! I’ll fix it this evening. The cleaning routine strips out “The” at the beginning of the Artist field but not “Thee”.

    RLLMUK'S FAVOURITE ALBUMS OF 2017 - RESULTS!

    I listened to that for the first time this morning and was stunned - it's amazing! Midnight Flyer is an incredible album opener. In fact, my mind has been blown by that and two other brilliant albums today, that I'd missed out on in 2017 - Cigarettes After Sex and Kelly Lee Owens. Three completely different genres, three completely wondrous albums.
  6. Thanks, as always, to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. I was going to do this tomorrow, but the children didn't want to see The Last Jedi for a fourth time, so you're in luck. This is the 13th year in a row of doing this, and it's been as great a pleasure as ever, with hardly any list-formatting crimes and no negs in the thread this time - perhaps an early indicator that the global spread of populist discontent is on the wane. So, here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. The Excel macro would have removed any votes for Ed Sheeran, reported the poster to the mods, and contacted police and social services, but fortunately that was not necessary. I've posted the whole list here - there were 286 albums voted for in all (273 last year, 294 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.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I’ve just been to see it for a second time and I enjoyed it a great deal more than the first. The change in tone seemed so much less jarring and I was able to appreciate it properly as a whole rather than a bunch of spectacular set-pieces strung together. Also,
