Physician, heal thyself
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

This was on my original list as well, but I much prefer to watch them perform than listen to the albums.

Quite enjoying exploring the one's I've not listened to before. Haven't really discovered anything mindblowing yet... the Springsteen album is possibly the dullest thing I've ever listened to :(

Agreed... maybe... but Roots Manuva's Run Come Save Me , despite being painfully obvious, is likely to snatch it for me. Both missed my top 30 on this occasion but on any other day...

Today’s set posted.

Not sure I will have time to post any tomorrow as I’m out in the evening. Can you hold on until Tuesday for the top 40?

Let’s hope for more U.K. Grime albums, that genre’s format of choice of course.

Thoughts from the brain of K...

A few I could have (should have?) voted for: Welch, Fever Ray, Milk Eyed Mender (why didn't I vote for that???), Ariel.

I listened to the Lyre of Orpheus recently and didn't think it had aged well apart from Oh Children.

I must admit that I finally listened to that Gillian Welch album having long written it off as "not my kind of thing" and I did enjoy it. I listened to another of hers and thought it was really good, more so than Revelator in fact.

Not my Nick Cave of choice for the period, but there is still hope in the top 40....Like that Deerhunter...Fever might sneak into the Top 50...

That Antlers record should be top 5.

I'm expecting the Avalanches to win....

^^ that was down to 72. Since then another three of mine - the War on Drugs, Fever Ray, The Lyre of Orpheus... - made the list. On other choices, I'd have sworn I had The Queen Of Denmark in my list and I can nod a head toward certain choices - J Dilla, Broadcast, Heartbreaker, PJ Harvey and I really need to revisit the Julia Holter - but the list as a whole is getting pretty heavy going.

I was listening to Queen of Denmark the other day. Can't believe I missed him off my list. I've had several artists in the top 50 ..... Deerhunter, Grizzly Bear, Phoenix, Black Keys byt chose different albums by them. I prefer my choices ;)However, they all might be in the top 10! Or not !!

I should listen to that Antlers album again later; heard bits of it when it came out, but they didn't click with me at the time.

I am honestly surprised to not see it much higher. As I am to see Gillian Welch so high.
