All caught up now! So this is for March of this year guys laugh.gif

The rules:


Contest window: Any album released in May 2021
Entry window: Usually probably the first week of the month or so, for this one I'll just go for a week from now!
The system: Choose any three albums released during the month in question in order of preference. The best receives three points, second best two points and the third best one point. See example below:

1. Album A (3 POINTS)
2. Album B (2 POINTS)
3. Album C (1 POINT)

There will be a tournament with the 3 top albums from each month at the end of the year.

So far through:

Bicep - Isles
Celeste - Not Your Muse
Arlo Parks - Collapsed In Sunbeams
SG Lewis - Times
Hayley Williams - FLOWERS for VASES / descansos
Foo Fighters - Medicine At Midnight
Lana Del Rey - Chemtrails Over the Country Club
Justin Bieber - Justice
Måneskin - Teatro d'ira: Vol. I
London Grammar - Californian Soil
Taylor Swift - Fearless (Taylor's Version)

Omg the taste

(I'm mad that this album isn't on Spotify though - I get why but I hope he changes his mind and puts it on there eventually, having to deal with local files in the mean time)

Is there any chance this round could just be left up for the whole month? Not really any reason to arbitrarily close it after a week and I need time to catch up with music x

I think the way to go about it, is you can if they would be eligible for the albums chart - which I think is 6 tracks?

I now present my belated votes for 3 albums which will all obviously not get through xx

1 Squid - Bright Green Field
2 Perturbator - Lustful Sacraments
3 Gary Numan - Intruder

This was by far the busiest month of albums I cared to listen to of the year so far, with 7 in total that I listened to - Olivia Rodrigo is narrowly missing out in 4th here (so there's at least one qualifier I'll be rooting for xo), then also shoutout to Skee Mask 'Pool', µ-Ziq 'Scurlage' and black midi 'Cavalcade', all good albums albeit the latter two were not quite as great as I hoped they'd be based on their single(s). Thanks to Kath for ensuring Skee Mask got a vote here anyway despite being crowded out for me by a busy month (the highlights of 'Pool' are great, it's just a little on the long side with too many songs I didn't really care to revisit so I couldn't bring myself to rank it above the more compact and consistent Gary Numan / Olivia Rodrigo albums).

If anyone reading this fancies a bit of dark electronic music with some post-punk influences I strongly recommend the Perturbator album xx
