    Obviously make sure to hit up RYM yourself and search your favourite genres.

    The deadline is 6th of March 1925.

    The rules:
    - submit at least 5 releases.
    - first place in your rankings gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, etcetc, 10th gets 1.
    - feel free to post more than 10, but only the top 10 will get points.
    - feel free to post less than 10, the same scoring will apply.
    - feel free not to rank your picks, in which case all ten picks will get 5.5 points.

    GNMD = General Non-Metal Discussion, so NO UNAMBIGUOUSLY METAL ALBUMS are to be included in anybody's list.

    Priority listens/relistens:
    Be-Bop Deluxe - Sunburst Finish
    Blondie - Blondie
    Funkadelic - Tales of Kidd Funkadelic
    Funkadelic - Hardcore Jollies
    Jean Michel Jarre - Oxygène

    Marijata - This Is Marijata
    Popol Vuh - Letzte Tage, Letzte Nächte
    Queen - A Day at the Races
    Rory Gallagher - Calling Card

    Not seeing any super favorites from this year, but definitely some really good stuff, especially on the funk side of things.

    EDIT: Oh and Split Enz' Second Thoughts, which I think I told Satanstoenail I'd check out soon like three times over the last six years, and after the third time I checked my LastFM to realize I had actually checked the album out but completely forgot that I did, which I'm now seeing I never even wishlisted on RYM despite all the other garbage that I have. Definitely some weird alien-amnesia vibes here.

    '76 was notorious, every old fucker talks about that summer. 15 consecutive days over 32, peaked at 36, pretty impressive for here lol. 2018 finally topped that year overall though.

    Agents of Fortune seems a particularly dubious omission, if based on metallic concerns!

    In Trance is apparently a '75 release, so chalk that up to yet another RYM fuckup.
