AMF Favorite Albums/Songs of 2020 - LIST THREAD

Hey everyone, After I saw the Grammy nominations, I thought it would be worthwhile to start this thread for the 2020 EOY polls, even though it's fairly early. I ran the songs poll last year and would like to do it again, unless anyone has any objections? Holden ran the albums poll last time around, ...

Anything great(and rock) from the second half of this year? Arsalan, I think you'd be a big fan of the new Bring Me the Horizon. Check out "Teardrops", but really I'd recommend the whole project. I think it's the best mainstream rock record of the year. Thanks for the recommendation. Unfortunately,...

It also surprised me because Titanic Rising has been an incredible grower for me - it seems to only get better with time, and I'd imagine it'll go down as one of the true classic albums of the 2010s at large.

Re: Collaborative playlist for the AMF top 1000 albums

I'll toss in a few votes for my albums: Mitski - Bury Me at Makeout Creek: "Texas Reznikoff", I think the best distillation of the album's sound. Deafheaven - Sunbather: "Irresistible", naturally "Dream House" will (and should) make the list, but one of their softer songs deserves the honor as well....

The divide between the two age demographics is fascinating to look at, particularly the more pronounced cases, where an album is unranked by one demographic and very highly rated by the other.
