Also I have been continuously shocked by the high placement of “thank u, next.” Like I thought it was a pleasant little pop albums but nothing groundbreaking, maybe a 3/5. Maybe I’m missing something so like what do y’all like about it?
I am sure you are familiar with the sound of the album, sounds that are between hard-edged and dreamy, which was the first thing that jumped out at me as special. This atmosphere is more apparent on tracks like "needy," "thank u, next" and "7 rings." This atmosphere surrounds me as I listen. I imagine I'm in the room, full of smudgy, murky items: oh there's the table lamp, oh there's a keychain, but when I reach for the keychain, it dissolves into the air.

The album is a bit of a concept album. And not just in the sense that every track is a love song - to consider this album a collection of love songs does it a bit of a disservice, as that would be lumping the album together with ones such as 21, Speak Now, Whitney Houston, etc. Really, every track is a bit of a vignette of the central character, not too dissimilar to how the holy album TPAB is structured (though obviously TPAB is more ambitious). Also there is a tiny arc across the album for this central character, with the title track being the centerpiece. I think the key track to "understanding the album" is "7 rings," so if you are interested, go back through the album, and think about what this song means in the context of the album.

Finally, I think the songwriting is very solid, track for track (this is a particular thing that places albums high for me, but maybe not for other people). Lyrics are focused, choruses pop, little lag time. The drunken outro on "bad idea" is a special moment.

But if you leave the album here, no harm done. You gave it a 3/5, so at least you got something out of it.

No, it's not groundbreaking, I agree. I probably wouldn't be as in love with it if I hadn't been in a dark place recently.

P.S. And who could forget the glorious singing??
You know what I’m gonna give it another listen. Thank you for sharing this!

I'll probably have some edits to this ahead of the deadline so don't count it yet. Thanks!

Only five days left to vote! And we're still seeing some big shakeups in our top results, so if you haven't sent a list and plan to, let me know!
I still plan to send my list, probably tomorrow. Always a last minute guy here !
Here's my list in progress but it'll be changing until tomorrow.
Are you planning on doing a songs list as well?

Also, anyone who needs an extension, let me know, otherwise I will start prepping the songs rollout!
I plan on having my songs (and albums) list ready by the end of the day tomorrow if that's okay.

Thanks!

You guessed right :D and you can also guess my second favorite
More seriously, the album is a long continuum of songs that almost are one (a little like Marvin Gaye's What's Going On) so it's hard to pick just one

Not that it matters much for the scorers, but I have edited my album list a bit. I realized that the only album this year that has stuck with me on a high level is 1000 gecs. I also changed up a few others.

I made a few small edits to my albums list, including adding Loraine James' For You and I and moving up Caterina Barbieri's Ecstatic Computation. I won't have any changes to my songs list. Thanks acroamor!

By the way, the albums race is shaping up to be quite an interesting four-way race between WB, FT, NC, and LDR. I'm less sure on the songs side, though Not is certainly moving up with these last few lists. Also, if I've been interpreting the lists right, fans of The Comet is Coming are in for a nice surprise when the results are revealed.

While I'm not going to say exactly what's right about your statement and not, I will say the race es much more between 1st and 2nd, and then between 3rd, 4th and 5th.
A hint: I think you may be undervaluing list quantities in your estimation, and overvaluing high placements.

I have been hurriedly trying to sample and digest as much as possible from last year's output: both tunes stacked in my "sampling" playlist from long favored artists of mine, suggestions from Spotify and from fellow AMFers.

This list feels very preliminary but there's a deadline so this is it. I suspect that this list may be very different by the time the year by year decade poll occurs.

If there's one observation I can make about 2019, it's that it may become my favourite of the decade based on the long list of tunes I find myself enjoying with still over three times that amount remaining on my list of stuff to go through.

18. Grimes ft. HANA | We Appreciate Power

This was ranked #93 in our top songs of 2018 poll from last year, so it should be ineligible for the poll this time around. Great song though.

Holden, I edited my list, too. I put in Peggy Gou's Starry Night at number 8 and moved everything after that a rank down accordingly. I hope it's not too much of a hassle for you to include this edit. Sorry for the late change!

Holden, I've just made a minor change to my albums list - I've replaced my previous #25 with Gérald Genty's Là-Haut. Thanks!
Yes, Dan ! Gérald Genty's album is great, especially the first song, "Planeur", a song that is much too low in my list stuffed with Nick Cave songs :D
His lyrics are excellent too about various subjects such as father/child (Planeur) or even Roger Federer (Fais des rêves). Genty is a musician and a tennis teacher

Last minute post from me. 2017 and 2018 were the first two years I really, consciously kept up with new releases, but this year it floundered a bit due to several reasons, so there are a lot of albums I would normally probably have listened to or that needed a second listen, but I never quite made it there. Nonetheless, these are 10 albums I listened to multiple times and loved:

Albums:
1. FKA Twigs – Mary Magdalene
2. Lana Del Rey – Norman Fucking Rockwell!
3. Angel Olsen – All Mirrors
4. Anne Meredith - Fibs
5. Purple Mountains – Purple Mountains
6. Holly Herndon – Proto
7. Aldous Harding – Designer
8. Better Oblivion Community Center – Better Oblivion Community Center
9. Nathalie Joachim & Spektral Quartet - Fanm d’Ayiti
10. Amyl & The Sniffers - Amyl & The Sniffers

A bit heavy on the female alternative I guess. The top 5 (!) have all held the number 1 spot once and I can hardly chose. I went with FKA Twigs because she sounded the most refreshing.

Song listening went better overall than albums:

Songs:
1. Purple Mountains – That’s Just the Way That I Feel
2. Sharon van Etten - Seventeen
3. Angel Olsen – All Mirrors
4. Big Thief – U.F.O.F.
5. Natalie Prass – Fare Thee Well
6. Aldous Harding – The Barrel
7. Weyes Blood – Andromeda
8. Better Oblivion Community Center – Dylan Thomas
9. Ramin Djawadi – The Night King
10. Andrew Bird – Sisyphus
11. Aldous Harding – Zoo Eyes
12. Anne Meredith - Sawbones
13. Lana Del Rey – Hope is a dangerous things for a woman to have - but I have it
14. Jenny Hval – Ashes to Ashes
15. Weyes Blood - Everyday
16. Holly Herndon – Eternal
17. Billie Eilish – Bad guy
18. FKA Twigs – Sad Day
19. Beirut – Gallipoli
20. Better Oblivion Community Center – Big Black Heart
21. Jambinai – Sawtooth
22. Jenny Lewis – Heads Gonna Roll
23. Stella Donnelly – Old Man
24. Anne Meredith – Bump
25. Orbi – Cthulhu
26. Angel Olsen – What It Is
27. Amyl & the Sniffers – Got You
28. DIIV - Blankenship
29. Holly Herndon – Frontier
30. FKA Twigs – Mary Magdalene
31. Yola – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
32. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Ghosteen
33. Danny Vera – Roller Coaster
34. Sleater-Kinney – Hurry On Home
35. Matana Roberts – Her Mighty Waters Run
36. Orville Peck – Hope to Die
37. Big Thief - Cattails
38. Chelsea Wolfe – Deranged for Rock & Roll
39. Angel Olsen – Lark
40. Rhiannon Giddens with Fransesco Turrisi – Wayfaring Stranger
41. Spellling – Haunted Waters
42. Amyl & the Sniffers – Angel
43. Sharon Van Etten – No One’s Easy to Love
44. Lizzo - Juice
45. Fontaines D.C. – Boys on the Better Land
46. The Raconteurs – Help Me, Stranger
47. Black Midi - bmbmbm
48. Purple Mountains – She’s Making Friends, I’m Turning Stranger
49. Weyes Blood – Movies
50. William Tyler – Venus in Aquarius

My number 1 was again a difficult choice, but I had to go with the opening track of Purple Mountains (sadly sidelined by critics in favor of other songs of the album). The way that song catches near-suicidal in a song that is both funny and catchy is remarkable. The whole album is uncomfortable, but has a wry sense of humor that I find strangely triumphant and moving, despite it being a prelude to a sad end. And nowhere is that more apparent than on That's Just the Way That I Feel.

The numbers 2 to 4 were all strong candidates too. That the title track of U.F.O.F. is not considered the Big Thief masterpiece of the year was a genuine surprise for me.
