Best Moderately Acclaimed Album of 2019 - Voting

Post by Jirin » Thu Jan 09, 2020 11:28 pm

This is the voting/discussion thread for Best Moderately Acclaimed Album of 2019. The way it works is, you have all of January to listen to as many of the nominations as possible then rank all of the ones you heard from best to worst. Winners will be calculated through a win/loss formula, so leaving an album off a list will neither help nor hurt it. Ballots should be PMed to me, and you have until January 31st to vote.

Here's a list of nominations:
Jirin: Saint Abdullah - Mechanical Flirtations
acroamor: William Tyler - Goes West
Romain: Andrew Bird - My Finest Work Yet
Edre Peraza: Post Malone - Hollywood’s Bleeding
andyd1010: Maggie Rogers - Heard It In A Past Life
Rdwdbob: Yola - Walk Through Fire
Brad: Craig Finn - I Need A New War
Cold Butterfly: Mixed Matches - Late
bonnielaurel: Rhiannon Giddens - There Is No Other
mileswide: Abronia - The Whole Of Each Eye
Jackson: Anna Meredith - fibs
DaveC: Jabminai - Onda
Schuttelbirne: Nathalie Joachim & Spektral Quartet - Fanm d’Ayiti
Nassim: Helado Negro - This Is How You Smile
KingofTonga: The HU - Gereg
madzong: Bruce Springsteen - Western Stars
sonofsamiam: Matana Roberts - Coin Coin Chapter 4: Memphis
bootsy: Little Brother - May The Lord Watch
TimmyWing: Alex Cameron - Miami Memory
Rob: ORBI - ORBI: The Oscillating Revenge Of Background Instruments

https://open.spotify.com/album/5eYr0GZ5 ... TZFSsu-b1g should work. Otherwise, I found it by searching 'Oscillating Revenge' and it's the top result. Unless it's not on US Spotify?

Hey Jirin - Is this a firm end date? Any chance of pushing it back a couple of days? No biggie either way - just wanted to check.

Thanks!

I could use a few more days myself. I still have 7 or 8 to listen to and would like to be able to rank all of them so that we get a more representative total result (as spiritualized has alluded to).

Currently only five ballots have been submitted and I’ve been behind in counting them, I’m happy to give extra time.

If you haven’t had a chance to hear them all, remember it’s a win/loss formula and you aren’t hurting albums you didn’t hear.

I just send in my list, after listening to every album twice. That took most of my listening last month. I don't actually have a clue which album will be a logical number one, so I'm curious to see the results.
