JT, Touche Amore and The Wonder Years are all battling for my #1...this is gonna be rough. This year had a lot of 4's and 4.5's for me but no clear winner. List may include... the aforementioned three, Jon Hopkins, A Lot Like Birds, Deafheaven, Frank Turner, Foals, Owel, Twenty One Pilots, August Burns Red, Soilwork, Streetlight Manifesto...

i got some work to do.

I feel like having the list due so early in December is a bad idea because what if something mindblowing comes out right after the close date for submissions

Yeah the due date should be pushed back to like December 21st at the earliest or something. I mean that's almost an entire month of albums that won't make lists simply because it came out late. At the end of the day it's trivial but still.
