    Since @smurty11 won’t be able to do this list this year, I thought I’d step up and continue the tradition.

    Please list your 10 favourite albums of the year. It is important to rank the albums in ORDER, since I’ll be using an inverse point system (#10 gets 1 point, #9 gets 2 points… #1 gets 10 points). You may list more than 10 as honorable mentions, but only your top 10 will be counted towards the list. That way it is fair and square for everyone.

    Needless to say, albums/EPs/mixtapes are only eligible if they were released somewhere in 2021.

    Deadline will be December 25th. Looking forward to reading all of your picks!

    It's weird how British people say "lift" instead of "elevator" and how my dad says "you're disappointing" instead of "I love you".
