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

    The deadline is 10th of November 2019.

    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.

    Late 90's boy band music is better than today's crop, that's for sure.

    If anyone votes for Neutral Milk Hotel, I'm gonna shoot them. Of all the awful, overrated indie swill, they take the cake.

    one of the few indie artists that don't suck in my opinion, just weird hermetic stuff with no close comparison points or much pandering to the usual indie trends. it's a bit precious for me sometimes (I LOVVEV EYOUU JESSSUUSS CHRIIRSSSTTTT) but songs like the title track and 'oh comely' and both parts of 'two headed boy' are keepers for me. pretty sure people shit on it mostly because the first couple of songs are so annoying they switch off then and there, which is understandable tbf.

    Well I've listened to it all the way through and still no album in the world puzzles me more about what people see in it. The music is bland, the lyrics are the kind of tripe a teenager would write if they were trying to be self consciously obtuse, and the vocals are so excruciating I'd be booing at a karaoke night.

    i suppose i feel that way about the weakest songs on there, but not nearly all of them. the only tune i'd really passionately defend is the title track though, one of my favourite songs ever and perfect in every way to my ears, including the vocals and lyrics. this isn't exactly a crowd i'd expect to embrace it though lol

    ...he's got... lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'... until he bites ya.

    lost without his queen, yet he remains as agile as a mexican jumping bean. His many alts have risen form the dead, and the in-crowd contagion will once again continue to spread.
