    A bit later than anticipated, but I know you've all been mentally preparing yourselves anyway.

    Can anyone stop Nick Cave running away with it again? Or will we get another surprise, a la Janelle Monae, last year? Only you can tell us....

    A reminder of those rules again:

    1. You PM me a list of your favourite records that were released since December 15 2018. In order, from 1 to whatever number you feel like, but nothing after 20 will count. SOMETIME BEFORE DECEMBER 14TH
    2. I assign points based on your orders of preference. NOTE: If you simply submit a list, unnumbered, I will assume it is in order of 1 to whatever, unless you tell me different
    3. Sometime nearer Christmas I give you a rundown, TOTP style, of the top 30, and you lot bicker, complain, and heckle.

    As dubiously agreed in previous years, to qualify as an album, it must be a new or live recording that was released after December 15 2018 in the UK. Does that pack of 7"s count? That seventeen minute white noise workout only available as an app? Well, no it doesn't, not in my book, but if you don't tell me otherwise, I wont know. What about that forty year old album that has been hiding under a bed since the artist died? Yup, absolutely.

    Results will be posted around December 16thish - giving you time to go and buy your niece/nephew the No.1 to show you're 'hip' and down with the kids.

    Polite requests: Please don’t reveal your list on this thread, save it till the final list is up. Otherwise it can start to become too apparent who is a likely winner.

    Please send me your list going from first to last, not vice versa, and with the artist listed before the album title, no need to put the numbers in, I only remove them straight away anyway.

    And that’s about it, I think....let the arguments begin, n the lists flow....

    Talking of lists, have some:

    Bleep's Top 10 Albums of the Year 2019

    well, the Apostrophe Society has disbanded, so thats them gone. And exclamation marks are only used when the year deserves it.

    Favourite thread of the year for me. Think I know my number one already but will enjoy the process of ordering the other nine.

    I have a question belboid

    Does a remix album of an album released in 2018 count?

    Sorry, kept forgetting to reply.

    My initial reaction was 'of course it bloody doesn't.' But, you know what? It's almost christmas and I am in a reasonably good mood. So what the hell, include it away.
