2005 is very weak at the top but has decent depth. The two Akron/Family albums were solid discoveries that received no attention from the other voters. I could easily see Sufjan being overtaken as my number 1 in the future, but multiple re-listens to Illinois reminded me why this album is so universally loved.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2005

Add Hawley's Coles Corner as my #6 please.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2005

Stephan
Add Hawley's Coles Corner as my #6 please.

Done

Two questions about Swedish releases (concerning 2006 poll):
With Every Heartbeat is listed as 2006 on AM. I thought it was a 2007 song and checked from Wikipedia and RYM. Both say it was first released in January 2007.
Other record is Yearbook 1 by Studio. Again RYM says it's a 2007 release (West Coast has been released in 2006).
So do we treat them as 2006 or 2007 releases.

EDIT: LAST DAY TO VOTE!!!
I'll try to release the results in the morning of AMF time (about 8-9 AM). So please vote before that.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2005

I have summed the points and have results ready for release. I start the 2006 poll -thread and send the results after that. So you have couble of minutes time to vote.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2005

The year of Sufjan and Illinois. In albums the gap between #1 and #2 is one of the biggest in our album poll history. Also I don't remember that any other artist has taken three first places in the song list. 11 different Sufjan songs got points.

25 . Kanye West feat. Adam Levine - Heard 'Em Say - 82 ( 5 , 16,4 )

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2005

Great list again, boys. I would like to see some of my favourites higher (“Coles Corner”, “Dimanche à Bamako”, “Hung Up”, “16 Military Wives”), just like anybody else I guess. But I can’t complain at all, my #1 album and song were also the overall #1.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2005

The song results are actually pretty satisfying in a year lacking big singles, particularly "Gone" edging out "Gold Digger." Wish I had put Lindstrom a couple places higher so "I Feel Space" would have beat out Depeche Mode.

The year of Sufjan and Illinois. In albums the gap between #1 and #2 is one of the biggest in our album poll history. Also I don't remember that any other artist has taken three first places in the song list. 11 different Sufjan songs got points.

Looks like the top two are the same, even with the huge gap, since the original 2005 poll. The White Stripes and Decemberists are out of luck this time, while Bright Eyes, My Morning Jacket and the National all got into the top 10. The National were nowhere to be seen in 2005.

It is one of the biggest for sure. In the 1997 poll OK Computer beat out LAGWAFIS 1376-530 (Also of note, Radiohead contained numbers 1, 3, 5, and 7 on the songs list).

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2005

I just discovered a fabulous album of 2005 by the band Washington. The album is "A New Order Rising" and all the songs are somptuous.
