Re: Best Moderately Acclaimed Album of 2018: RESULTS

Thanks for hosting, Jirin! I really like the top 2 and am glad they are celebrated here. Hopefully a lot of these albums (and their songs) crash into the top 100 of the forum poll of the best albums and songs of 2018.

It was listed as 1980 on RYM, but I'll go back and edit.

Thanks! It can be a bit tricky working out release dates. As a general rule, I'll go with AM first, and then check discogs and RYM.

Hi Moonbeam - sorry if this is a big inconvenience but after a bit of research it appears Be True by Bruce Springsteen, which i put in my top 5, was in fact first released in 1981 as a b-side (I assumed that all the River singles were released in 1980 but given the album came quite late in the year...

My favorite song in this last batch (that I heard) was "Fireworks" by First Aid Kit - what an amazing song! The rest of the album was a bit too country for me, but "Fireworks" is incredible.

Do you have a point formula, Jirin? It’s not pure W/L based on the countdown so far. Is it something like ELO or RPI that you use? Whatever it is could be a game changer for future polls!

I have though about adopting an SRS-like metric for games like this, but I never tested it out.
