    Thumbs up Coachella Message Board Top Albums of 2015

    Apparently there wasn't a thread last year, and there isn't one for this year, aside from the dynamic thread, which says it isn't a replacement for this.

    Soooo....(digs up IcedKeg's thread to copypasta from)

    Anyways, as before, post your top 25 albums of the year in this thread. Number your albums in order from 1-25.

    Your #1 album will be equal to 25 points.
    Your #2 album will be equal to 24 points.
    .
    .
    .
    Your #25 album will be equal to 1 point.
    Make sense?

    If you want to just post a top 10, or a list less than 25, that's okay. Your #1 album will still count for 25 points and so on and so forth.

    I will tally everybody's lists together and post OUR collective Coachella Message Board Top 50 albums of 2015.

    Lists will be due by Caturday, January 2nd at 11:59PM PST. If you post and want to edit your lists at all, that's fine, but PLEASE ALERT ME WHEN YOU EDIT YOUR LIST.

    All are encouraged to post. The more the merrier.

    Happy Holidays.

    Wait, that was 2014. Sorry, I got thrown off by seeing Tessa include Black Messiah.

    ok yeah you almost threw me off with RTJ2 cause i would have put that on mine as well. i only put BM on mine since all the publications consider that fair game. i guess december 2014 is fair. so in that case i need to edit mine.

    Maybe something happened to it? I clearly remember being disappointed at how low Black Messiah placed. Hoping for top 5, and it being somewhere between 5-10.

    I think it was skipped last year because Bryce's schedule was changed and he was in Atlanta for a longer period of time? Or something. And now he's married and traveling the world or other fun adult stuff

    I'm going to count December 2014 as part of 2014. It's a little unfair to albums from December, but Metacritic only lists 13 more albums to be released in 2015, and none after 12/18. Artists know how this works. Though most proper outlets have heard the upcoming Grimes and Baroness and whatever from review copies. There's the occasional Beyoncé or Radiohead surprise - and the Beyoncé would have made my 2013 list if I had had more than a week to think about it - but the year is basically over.

    There are a few ways to deal with the problems here. We can wait until March 2016 to do our 2015 lists, but no one cares then. We could count December 2015 as part of December 2016 but that's stupid. Or we can stick to the actual calendar year and and be stuck with quick decisions on late-year releases.

    I prefer that third option, in part because it all feels like quick decisions anyway. Though the Dynamic Thread has kept me thinking about albums and comparing them all year.
    I don't think I'm hosting a 2016 collaborative playlist.

    I remember it as well. You, and I think Bryan, were bummed on how low Black Messiah placed in the final rankings. Then a lot of people's defense was that it was just released and they hadn't had time to fully soak it in or something.

    Wasn't it this year that the board got all fucked up and a few threads were deleted? Maybe that's what happened.

    This is what the confusion is about. We did not do a 2014 list, but did do a half decade list at the beginning of 2015,

    Released in 2014: consider it a 2015 album.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    That's right! I forgot he had one coming.

    Anyone else think we're gonna get Swish, the new Kanye record, as a surprise Christmas drop?

    I feel like in past year's we've stretched out the due date for our lists til shortly after the new year. It's always helped me, and I'd appreciate it if we did it again this year, particularly because I've got a week off after Christmas and was planning on trying to listen to a bunch of stuff I haven't had time for yet.
