I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread.

  2. 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.

  5. Thanks, as always, to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. I'd have finished earlier, but the children wanted to see Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them again. This is the 12th year in a row of doing this, and it's been a great pleasure, with only a small number of list-formatting criminals and, shockingly, A NEG IN THE THREAD, which is merely a manifestation of the great anger and discontentment in society as a whole, and the incipient collapse of Western civilisation, and thus only to be expected. I'm really looking forward to catching up on some new music as I seem to have spent more time rebuying all my favourite albums on vinyl listening to old stuff last year. So, here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 273 albums voted for in all (294 last year, 237 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.

  6. This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/290740-best-new-music-of-2016/ - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format: Position - Artist - Album for example, 01 - Kuedo - Slow Knife 02 - David Bowie - Blackstar 03 - Metronomy - Summer 08 PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/290740-best-new-music-of-2016/ The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2008/2009/2010/2011/2012/2013/2014/2015 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread. If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below. Q - Are reissues allowed? A - As long as the reissue date is in 2016, yes. Q - Are EPs allowed? A - Yes.
  7. Thanks, as always, to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. I gave up an opportunity to go and see The Force Awakens for the fifth time to do this, I'll have you know. This is the 11th year in a row of doing this, and it's been a pleasure, apart from the occasional eyeroll at list-formatting offences - I'm looking forward to catching up on some new music. So, here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 294 albums voted for in all (237 last year). 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. Anyway, here we go… (4 January edit - duplicates for Florence And The Machine, Floating Points and Father John Misty merged, total number of albums changed from 297 to 294) Rank - Artist - Album [Total number of votes] [Total points] 1 - Grimes - Art Angels [9] [57] 2 - Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly [6] [54] 3 - Chvrches - Every Open Eye [5] [46] 4 - Clutch - Psychic Warfare [4] [38] 5 - Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness [5] [37] 6 - Jamie XX - In Colour [7] [35] 6 - Floating Points - Elaenia [5] [35] 8 - Sleater-Kinney - No Cities To Love [5] [32] 9 - Aphex Twin - Soundcloud Dump [3] [30] 9 - Tame Impala - Currents [6] [30] 11 - Baroness - Purple [4] [29] 12 - Marina and the Diamonds - Froot [3] [27] 13 - Faith No More - Sol Invictus [3] [25] 13 - Ghost - Meliora [3] [25] 15 - Prodigy - Day Is My Enemy [4] [24] 16 - Public Service Broadcasting - Race for Space [3] [23] 17 - Joanna Newsom - Divers [4] [21] 18 - Chemical Brothers - Born in the Echoes [3] [20] 18 - New Order - Music Complete [3] [20] 18 - Sufjan Stevens - Carrie And Lowell [2] [20] 21 - Carpenter Brut - Trilogy (EP III) [3] [19] 21 - Blur - magic whip [3] [19] 23 - Belle and Sebastian - Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance [2] [18] 23 - Bjork - Vulnicura [2] [18] 25 - Sexwitch - Sexwitch [3] [17] 25 - Prurient - Frozen Niagara Falls [3] [17] 25 - Max Richter - Sleep/From Sleep [3] [17] 25 - Squarepusher - Damogen Furies [2] [17] 25 - Roisin Murphy - Hairless Toys [2] [17] 25 - Father John Misty - I love you, Honeybear [2] [17] 25 - Internet - Ego Death [2] [17] 32 - John Carpenter - Lost Themes [2] [16] 32 - Slaves - Are You Satisfied?

  8. This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/287754-best-releases-of-2015-so-far/- if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format: Position - Artist - Album for example, 01 - Helena Hauff - Discreet Desires 02 - Lana Del Rey - Honeymoon 03 - Shamir - Ratchet PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/287754-best-releases-of-2015-so-far/ The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2008/2009/2010/2011/2012/2013/2014 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread. If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below. Q - Are reissues allowed? A - As long as the reissue date is in 2015, yes. Q - Are EPs allowed? A - Yes.
  9. Thanks, as always, to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. I think this is the 10th(!) year in a row I've done this, and it's still a pleasure - January is always a great month of listening to music I'd have otherwise overlooked. So, here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 237 albums voted for in all (222 last year). 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. Anyway, here we go… Rank - Artist - Album [Total number of votes] [Total points] 1 - Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels 2 [9] [54] 2 - D'Angelo - Black Messiah [6] [46] 3 - Swans - To Be Kind [6] [45] 4 - Aphex Twin - Syro [6] [42] 5 - St Vincent - St Vincent [6] [32] 6 - Sun Kil Moon - Benji [5] [29] 7 - Flying Lotus - You're Dead!

  10. This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/282160-rllmuks-favourite-albums-of-2014-discussion-thread/- if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format: Position - Artist - Album for example, 01 - Mica Levi - Under The Skin OST 02 - Aphex Twin - Syro 03 - St. Vincent - St. Vincent PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/282160-rllmuks-favourite-albums-of-2014-discussion-thread/ The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2008/2009/2010/2011/2012/2013 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread. If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below. Q - Are reissues allowed? A - As long as the reissue date is in 2014, yes. Q - Are EPs allowed? A - Yes.
  11. Thanks, as always, to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. It was really, really close for first place this time… So, here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 222 albums voted for in all (287 last year). 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. Anyway, here we go… [EDIT 6/1 - Duplicates of Yeezus combined, moving it up to third place] Rank - Artist - Album [Total points] [Total number of votes] 1 - Boards Of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest [78] [12] 2 -

  13. Thanks, as always to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. It's always a pleasure to do this, and my imagined utopia of a full set of properly formatted lists grows ever closer Here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 287 albums voted for in all (249 last year). 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. The best-of-decade poll results are here: http://www.rllmukfor...howtopic=221848 - 1990s http://www.rllmukfor...howtopic=223576 - 1980s http://www.rllmukfor...howtopic=225001 - 1970s And the 2012 results!

  14. This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukfor...r-2012-edition/ - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format: Position - Artist - Album for example, 01 - Beach House - Bloom 02 - Chromatics - Kill For Love 03 - Robert Hood - Motor Nighttime World Vol 3 PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukfor...r-2012-edition/ The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2008/2009/2010/2011 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread. If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below. Q - Are reissues allowed? A - As long as the reissue date is in 2012, yes. Q - Are EPs allowed? A - Yes.
  15. Again, thanks to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. It's always a pleasure to do this, and nearly all of them were perfectly formatted this time! Here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 249 albums voted for in all (277 last year). 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), here are some results from previous years: 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 1990s 1980s 1970s Rank - Artist - Album [Total points] [Total number of votes] 1 - M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming [65] [9] 2 - Radiohead - King of Limbs [54] [7] 2 - SBTRKT - SBTRKT [54] [7] 4 - PJ Harvey - Let England Shake [53] [7] 5 - Metronomy - English Riviera [44] [6] 6 - Bon Iver - Bon Iver [36] [6] 7 - Horrors - Skying [30] [4] 8 - Kuedo - Severant [29] [5] 8 - Blanck Mass - Blanck Mass [29] [4] 10 - Strokes - Angles [28] [4] 10 - Bjork - Biophilia [28] [3] 12 - Jay Z & Kanye West - Watch The Throne [27] [4] 13 - Oneohtrix Point Never - Replica [25] [3] 14 - Rustie - Glass Swords [24] [4] 14 - TV On The Radio - Nine Types of Light [24] [3] 16 - Mastodon - Hunter [22] [4] 16 - Grouper - A I A : Alien Observer [22] [3] 18 - James Blake - James Blake [21] [5] 18 - Foo Fighters - Wasting Light [21] [4] 18 - Mogwai - Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will [21] [3] 21 - WU LYF - Go Tell Fire To The Mountain [20] [3] 21 - Caretaker - An Empty Bliss Beyond This World [20] [2] 21 - Fucked Up - David Comes to Life [20] [2] 24 - Taake - Noregs Vaapen [19] [2] 25 - Naked And The Famous - Passive Me, Aggressive You [18] [4] 26 - Earth - Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1 [17] [3] 26 - Advisory Circle - As The Crow Flies [17] [2] 26 - Foster The People - Torches [17] [2] 29 - Tom Waits - Bad As Me [16] [3] 29 - Girls - Father, Son, Holy Ghost [16] [2] 29 - John Maus - We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves [16] [2] 29 - Steve Moore - Primitive Neural Pathways [16] [2] 29 - Zomby - Dedication [16] [2] 34 - Washed Out - Within and Without [15] [3] 34 - Colin Stetson - New History Warfare Vol 2: Judges [15] [2] 34 - Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes [15] [2] 37 - Vaccines - What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?

  16. This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=252391 - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format: Position - Artist - Album for example, 01 - Kuedo - Severant 02 - Metronomy - The English Riviera 03 - Surgeon - Breaking The Frame PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=252391. The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2008/2009/2010 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 30 December. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread. If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below. Q - Are reissues allowed? A - As long as the reissue date is in 2011, yes.
  17. Again, thanks to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. And again, thanks to those who posted but didn't bother to read the instructions at the top properly.... Here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 291 albums voted for in all (277 last year). 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.

  18. This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=235357 - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format: Position - Artist - Album for example, 01 - The National - High Violet 02 - Engineers - In Praise Of More 03 - Brian Eno - Small Craft On A Milk Sea PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=235357. The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2007/2008/2009 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 23 December. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread. If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below. Q - Are reissues allowed? A - As long as the reissue date is in 2010, yes. Q - Is Local Natives' "Gorilla Manor" album from 2009 or 2010? A - It was released in the UK in November 2009 (USA February 2010) so counts as a 2009 release for this poll.
  19. Again, thanks to everyone who took time to think about and post their list for this year. Thanks again, also, to those who posted but didn't bother to read the instructions at the top properly. You thoughtless cunts! Anyway - here are the results! A 1st place vote scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 277 albums voted for in all (248 last year). If enough people want to query the results or look at the raw data, then I'll upload the spreadsheet. I usually miss one or two 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. Happily, our collective taste is moving away from that of Q magazine, with 3 of our top 10 in Q's top 10 (5 last year), but at least U2 received not one single, solitary vote on our list. Pitchfork also have 3 of their top 10 in our top 10 (5 last year) - are there any critics' lists with a better match? Rank - Artist - Album (Total points) (Total number of votes) 1 - Mastodon - Crack The Skye (151) (19) 2 - Fuck Buttons - Tarot Sport (87) (13) 3 - Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion (68) (11) 4 - XX - xx (63) (10) 5 - Baroness - Blue Record (51) (8 ) 6 - Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (48) (6) 7 - Pissed Jeans - King Of Jeans (44) (6) 8 - Astra - The Weirding (38) (7) 8 - Between The Buried & Me - The Great Misdirect (38) (7) 8 - Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!

  20. This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=215745 - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format: Position - Artist - Album for example, 01 - Fever Ray - Fever Ray 02 - Point B - Suicide Beauty Spot 03 - Ben Frost - By The Throat PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=215745. The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2007/2008 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 29 December, as I won't be around on the 22nd as I'd previously thought. You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread. If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below. Q - Are reissues allowed? A - As long as the reissue date is in 2009, yes.
  21. Thanks to everyone who took the trouble to format their lists for this. Thanks, also, to those who posted but didn't bother to read the instructions at the top I had a bit of extra time so I took lists from the discussion thread where people hadn't posted in the list thread. I only took their first post in the discussion thread, as their name was added to an exclusion list in Excel once it picked up the post. ..... so, without further ado, here are the results! 1st place scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 248 albums voted for in all. If enough people want to query the results or look at the raw data, then I'll upload the spreadsheet to YSI later. Sadly, we have 5 albums in common with Q's top 10 (2 last year), but at least Coldplay is in 176th place in our list. Pitchfork have 5 of their top 10 in our top 10 (7 last year) - are there any critics' lists with a better match?
  22. This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=184981 - if you've already posted there and want your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format: Position - Artist - Album for example, 01 - Friendly Fires - Friendly Fires 02 - Portishead - Third 03 - Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours Please don't post any opinions or responses to other forumites' choices in this thread - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=184981. The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2007 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 22 December so we've got results before Christmas. If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below. 1) You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread. 2) Radiohead's "In Rainbows" doesn't count for 2008 as i) it was issued in the UK in download/vinyl + CD boxset format in 2007 and ii) was voted for by forumites in 2007. 3) Bon Iver's "For Emma, Forever Ago" counts for 2008 as i) it wasn't issued in the UK until this year and ii) was not voted for by forumites in 2007.
  23. Thanks to everyone who took the trouble to format their lists for this. A standard format made it a lot easier and quicker to do than in previous years..... so, without further ado, here are the results! 1st place scored 10 points, 2nd place 9, down to 10th place scoring 1 point. I've posted the whole list here - there were 220 albums voted for in all. If enough people want to query the results or look at the raw data, then I'll upload the spreadsheet to YSI later. Just having a quick look at critics' top 10 lists, it's great to see that we have only 2 albums in common with Q's top 10 Pitchfork have 7 of their top 10 in our top 10 - can anyone find any end-of-year list with a better match?
  24. I've done more or less the same as last year and combined the top 10s with rating posts in the unstructured discussion for those that didn't post a top 10. It's based on a score of 10 for 1st place down to 1 for 10th place. I'll upload the spreadsheet where I did the calculations later on if anyone has any queries or wants to check they were counted correctly, but for now, here are the results! The winner got about 2.8% of the overall vote, which just goes to show how eclectic we are... Position - Album - Artist (Total) 1 - Donuts - J Dilla (86) 2 - Ys - Joanna Newsom (78) 3 - The Eraser - Thom Yorke (66) 4 - Return To Cookie Mountain - TV On The Radio (58) 5 - 10,000 Days - Tool (57) 6 - We Are The Pipettes - Pipettes (54) 7 - Black Holes And Revelations - Muse (46) 8= - So This Is Goodbye - Junior Boys (45) 8= - The Warning - Hot Chip (45) 10 - Let's Get Out Of This Country - Camera Obscura (44) 11 - Hello Everything - Squarepusher (41) 12= - 5.55 - Charlotte Gainsbourg (35) 12= - Silent Shout - Knife (35) 14 - The Bells Of 1 2 - Sol Seppy (34) 15= - Amputechture - Mars Volta (33) 15= - Peeping Tom - Peeping Tom (33) 15= - Scale - Herbert (33) 18= - Ballad Of The Broken Seas - Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan (32) 18= - Through The Windowpane - Guillemots (32) 20= - Mr Beast - Mogwai (30) 20= - Orphans - Tom Waits (30) 22= - Back To Black - Amy Winehouse (29) 22= - Pink - Boris (29) 24= - Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene (27) 24= - The Life Pursuit - Belle & Sebastian (27) 24= - The Loon - Tapes 'n Tapes (27) 27 - Blood Mountain - Mastodon (26) 28 - Rather Ripped - Sonic Youth (23) 29= - Fishscale - Ghostface Killah (21) 29= - Game Theory - Roots (21) 29= - Whatever… - Arctic Monkeys (21) 32= - A Matter Of Life And Death - Iron Maiden (20) 32= - Futuresex / Lovesounds - Justin Timberlake (20) 34= - Howling Bells - Howling Bells (19) 34= - Strange We Should Meet Here - Idiotpilot (19) 34= - The Trials Of Van Occupanther - Midlake (19) 34= - Wolfmother - Wolfmother (19) 34= - Yoyoyoyoyo - Spank Rock (19) 39 - Ships - Danielson (18) 40= - Begin To Hope - Regina Spektor (17) 40= - Come Clarity - In Flames (17) 40= - The Beauty Room - Beauty Room (17) 40= - The Last Resort - Trentemoller (17) 44= - Altar - Sunn O)))/Boris (16) 44= - Destroyer's Rubies - Destroyer (16) 44= - Happy Hardcore Pom Poms - Venetian Snares (16) 44= - Leaving Songs - Stuart A Staples (16) 44= - Modern Times - Bob Dylan (16) 44= - Victory For The Comic Muse - Divine Comedy (16) 44= - We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions - Bruce Springsteen (16)

    Rllmuk's Favourite Albums Of 2005

    Wow, this was a real pain to collate all the votes as so much was in the unstructured discussion, but I went ahead and did it anyway - it's based on a score of 5 for a 1st place down to 1 for a 5th place. The raw data can be found here if anyone is really interested in seeing which 16 albums placed equal 164th with 1 point, or wants to make sure that I haven't misrepresented them in any way... The results are:
