    Two Hands – Big Thief(N)

    Do you think they’d submit the album to rock? “Not” will be submitted to song, but the band said that Two Hands and UFOF are twins (or something like that), and the latter was nominated in Alternative.

    Compare your spotify listening with me at musictaste.space (code: charismatic-celery-439)!

    Vote for Phoebe (#33*), Rina (#42* + #177*), and Fiona (#183*) in the Triple J Hottest 100 at https://hottest100.abc.net.au/

    Let's get all three to the top!

    *where their songs are expected to place as of January 8th

    I’m not sure about that. I think “U.F.O.F.” is more alternative (something between folk and rock) than “Two Hands”, but both are great albums. Maybe their chances of winning are better in the rock field.

    Green Day, Father of All… Better not get nowhere near rock album. Just such a disappointment of an album. Like we all know I love the band but this was just brutal

    Imploding the Mirage by The Killers could be a strong contender for Best Rock Album. Hopefully Green Day won’t get nominated.

    I don’t see how Green Day gets in. The aggressively bad reviews and poor fan reception is the only noise that album made.

    The 1975 have had buzz all year. I’d be surprised if they miss.

    “Jaime” is a great album, but I don’t think it’s a Rock Album. I don’t find many rock sounds on it. There are blues, soul, folk, R&B…
    but very little Rock & Roll. I think it should be sent to Alternative Music Album.

    I don’t think Beck will be nominated at this round. His album is completely forgotten by pretty much everyone.

    Beck’s album is very Pop. He could submit to that Field too.

    Would love to see The 1975 pop up in Rock Song or Performance. I’m not counting on ‘Notes’ getting an Best Alternative Album nomination- if they missed with ‘A Brief Inquiry’, which is their most critically praised album, then I doubt they will be able to pull it off this year.
