Re: Best of the B-Sides 2: Nominations

So happy to be in this forum when two of the three songs I immediately thought to nominate were already done. "Fillmore Jive" and "Court and Spark" I feel will do quite well this tournament.

As for me, I'm going with "Man in a Shed" by Nick Drake.

Re: Moderately Acclaimed Albums 8 (2017) - Submissions Now Open!

One thing that might cause controversy is an album that has very little acclaim and/or is considered bad by many. Since the name of the game is "moderately acclaimed". But maybe I'm too much caught up on semantics. The 2015 thing that Jirin suggested is a loophole that would certainly cau...

Re: Grammys 2017

I wouldn't count Sturgill out entirely, because no one thought River: The Joni Letters or The Suburbs would have won. And this year, Sturgill's sound sits at a stark contrast with the other four, poppier releases. There's an outside chance that the vote gets split between the others to enough of an ...
