Even earlier than last year. Nice to see The Antlers and Wild Beasts do so well, but presumably they were too early for Tom Waits to even contend.
Holy crap, it's too early for this...
Henrik, I'd be happy to maintain the EOY albums spreadsheet again, whenever you want to create and send it. I'm going to wait until December to start working on it, though, because holy crap, it's too early for this.
Yeah, they were this early last year too, completely missing My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. They won't be the only one.
Albums released in December are either sacrificed despite obvious qualities or appear in lists for two consecutive years
I've been so busy with the site update, but now (apparently) it's time for the EOY lists. Thanks Paulo and even bigger thanks to you, Harold. I think I have a spreadsheet template ready to go. I'll get back soon.
Henrik: I can do the songs spreadsheet when those lists start coming out.
That's great, Chris!
Harold and Chris, I suppose the best for you is just to remove all data and use the EOY 2010 spreadsheets. Let me know if you have any questions.
There will be so many thanks so I'll save them for later this time.
Loved the antlers,
I think the music for 2011 was outstanding, so many great albums.
