LAST CALL: Your Top 50 of 20172017-12-17 by Jom STAFF | 17 Comments
Last call to submit your ballots for the Users' Top 50 Albums of 2017.
As a reminder, there is a new scoring format this year courtesy of resident Statnik-itian macman, so please follow the format in the forum post very carefully:
[Ballots are closed - thank you! If you have yet to submit a ballot, shoutbox Jom.]
If you've already submitted a ballot, this is your opportunity to (a) review it so that you are happy with your submissions; (b) ensure that it is following the proper style guide; and (c) verify that your points are allocated properly.
Also, if you are interested in submitting a blurb for the feature, please fill out this short Google form (i.e., give us your username and 5 albums you'd prefer to write about).
As a friendly reminder, the site's contributing writers coordinate the blurb-writing, so they will reach out to you if your assistance is needed.
Looking forward to seeing the final product this year. Cheers!
“Submissions will be accepted until the 18th at the earliest and 20th at the latest.”
Is this no longer correct? Or am I misinterpreting the deadline?
Digging: Birds in Row - We Already Lost The World
It's still correct, but because activity had slowed in the thread, we wanted to have a last call heads-up to ensure it was on everyone's radar. I also wanted to take the opportunity to let people know about the Google form (which is the "new" part of this article, basically).
Looks great, thanks!
Almost forget about this
take: can we nominate other reviewers whomst we like to write up albums we know they're familiar with? like i think it would be cool to see a plane write-up of Alvvays, a jack write-up of go farther in lightness, a lucid or friv write-up of Phantom Brickworks etc. etc.
Digging: Taku Unami, Moe Kamura & Tetuzi Akiyama - Konata Kanata
I mean... you could, I guess?
Like in years past, the contributors get first crack at the blurbs, and then any albums that go unclaimed will go to users based on what's in the Google form.
I’d like to nominate Wines for Aaron Dilloway which surely will crack top 10
Hot off winning the grammy and the vma *crowd cheers* Aaron Dilloway wins sputnikmusics album of the year!!! *rousing standing ovation, a single tear falls down Dilloway's handsome cheek*
Last Call with Spot Johnny
What Are You Still Doing Here, We’re Closed Now with Jom
goddamn it so much to listen to STILL and also have to decide whether to jig my list so albums i know won't make any top lists are included or be more reasonable this is gonna give me a nervous breakdown and aneurysm simultaneously
super late but.... did I miss this :-)
Wonder if the contributors have extended their invites. Haven't heard anything back so fingers crossed.
I feel you, RogueNine.
