The eFests Album of The Year 2021 - List Submission Thread

Might be mistaken, but couldn't see this thread and guessing that maybe the backup @eFestivals used when fixing the site might have been made before this thread was created. Hope @SwedgeAntilles doesn't feel I'm stepping on his toes, but thought I'd recreate it if anyone still wanted to vote. Managed to find a cached version of the original post on google so you still get to enjoy his wonderful introduction, which I've copy pasta'd below


Simply having a wonderful listmas time...

It's almost December 1st which means it's that time again; time to prepare the definitive eFestivals Glastonbury Forum Top Ten Albums of the Year. As with previous years, the idea is that you post your lists in this thread, I'll compile the results and post the results prior to Christmas. Due to some (OMICRON permitting) Christmas travel I have planned this year I'll be aiming to share the results on Wednesday 22nd December. (NOTE: this year I'm doing albums only, i.e. not tracks too. If someone want to take over the TOTY they're welcome to do so).

As with all organised fun the best part is the rules, and they are as follows;

  1. Please list both Artist/Band name, template below (makes it much easier for the C&P to excel)
  2. Listing your album as #1 pick will give it 10 points, your number #2 pick receives 9 points, #3 receives 8 points etc. etc. The ten albums with the most overall points will be our top ten for this year.
  3. You're allowed to list more then ten albums, but only your top ten will be considered. 
  4. 'In No Particular Order' lists can be included, however each song/album will receive a maximum of 1 point and lists of any more than ten albums will be discounted.
  5. Deadline for submissions will be Midnight GMT on Sunday 19th December.

And that's it! I'll give this thread a bump every few days to keep in active so take your time and have fun!

ALBUMS OF THE YEAR

  1. Artist/Band name - Album name
  2. Artist/Band name - Album name
  3. Artist/Band name - Album name
  4. Artist/Band name - Album name
  5. Artist/Band name - Album name
  6. Artist/Band name - Album name
  7. Artist/Band name - Album name
  8. Artist/Band name - Album name
  9. Artist/Band name - Album name

(The idea is to keep this thread for lists, so would recommend we keep the more general discussion going in @Brave Sir Robin's existing Albums of the Year thread). Lastly; if you need some final inspiration then the current list of albums of the year so far based on the monthly polls are:

Special shout out to Weezer enjoyed both of theirs and Floating Points.

On the Vaccines being top my wife does not like the Vaccines previous efforts at all, therefore because she likes this one has become my favourite of the year!

Black Honey were my favourite band live this year and given I've not seen as much as I would like that has a lot of positivity tied to it hence second!
