Re: Albums and Songs of 1985 Poll

What years do we do after 1980s? My vote is for the 2010s. I know it might seem a little early given the decade will have just ended, but that's only the case for 2019, which would be featured in November 2020, 10 months after all the albums were released. I think that's probably enough time for th...

We would expect to move on to the 1970s. An alternative would be to do the 2010s in the same manner. However, I expect we'll have one-off end of decade polls for the 2010s and proceed with the 1970s.

Re: Halfway through the 80s poll: thoughts and ideas

For the 1990 decade poll, 14 of 29 submitters of lists didn't rank all 150 albums. Also noteworthy that there were fewer voters than for the year polls. Expanding the decade songs poll makes more sense than expanding the album poll.
