I think using a different equation or calculation method for one list would be unfair to the rest of the members. Also, don't worry about how much your list fits the consensus; the best part about these polls are when an unexpected album/song does well.

You could always provide the option to everyone if you're worried about fairness. What value a tied work should be worth would need to be decided, though.

So a potential fix to the tie vote scenario would be to add up the points distributed if all of the #2 rankings were in order than distribute them equally amongst all of the albums. Is everyone ok with this fix for ties?

When the moment came to cut the fat and do the ranking, this whole exercise became rather... painful. However, I feel like I've spent enough time on this already. I initially planned to add comments but I'm a bit fed up with this right now and I just want to get it over with. I won't make a songs list, I just hate ranking songs in the first place and it would require more listening time than I have on my hands right now. Anyway, I hope you will find my list interesting. Nick Cave holds the distinction of being featured in both my main top 50 and my runner-ups. Yeah, that's how much I love this guy.

What can I say otherwise that would be positive? Well, 2016 was a dark year, with an unhealthy amount of artists featured in this top no longer being with us right now, and most of the music in this list is pretty illustrative of that feeling. Now I'm craving for 80s cheese to keep my spirits up (especially with the political actuality to come), and I'm probably going to spend the next few days listening to that kind of music. 2017 is here and there are already several high-profile releases that I need to catch up with as well.

So a potential fix to the tie vote scenario would be to add up the points distributed if all of the #2 rankings were in order than distribute them equally amongst all of the albums. Is everyone ok with this fix for ties?
That's exactly how I envisaged it. I suspect this is how unranked EOY lists are also weighted.

Pierre, the fatigue you express at creating and fine-tuning your list is something I can relate to (and I'm sure many others here can too). I've grappled with many an end-of-year list before, to the point of wondering what the point of it all is. Fortunately, I've learned by now to allow myself some breathing space in the list-creation process. I hope you will achieve the same, should you choose to burden yourself with another list-load again. If it's any consolation, I think your list is fab. I admire the diversity of it. And I'm sure others here feel the same. What feels exhausting to you can feel like a breath of fresh air to others. ;)
...will keep us together.

I'll add as a forumer for the last few years, I've always admired and studied most closely the lists with unsusual picks, and I hope you have as much fun making your list as I do reading them, Pierre

Thanks for the kind words, and sorry for all the negativity. I believe I just had too much catch-up to do this year, it became so intensive that it kind of sucked out all the fun from it; if and when I do it next year, I'll try to start working on it earlier. Anyway, I hope you'll have fun exploring my top!

As always I end the year thinking I didn't listen to nearly as many albums as I wanted to. Out of the albums I did hear there were several disappointments: Swans, Andy Stott, Dean Blunt, and PJ Harvey have combined for eight top ten albums in my 2010-2015 EOY lists, but their efforts this year were uneven.

Nevertheless I do really like what I've listed here. A Tribe Called Quest's out-of-nowhere November release has been on repeat ever since and is becoming one of my favorite ever rap releases. Bowie, Nick Cave, and Leonard Cohen had amazing late career releases punctuated by tragedy. And Jessy Lanza is my "why isn't this top ten on everyone's list?" album of the year.

Albums

1 | A Tribe Called Quest | We Got it From Here…Thank You For Your Service
2 | David Bowie | Blackstar
3 | Jessy Lanza | Oh No
4 | Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds | Skeleton Tree
5 | Car Seat Headrest | Teens of Denial
6 | Radiohead | A Moon Shaped Pool
7 | Michael Kiwanuka | Love & Hate
8 | Kaytranada | 99.9%
9 | La Femme | Mystere
10 | Nicolas Jaar | Sirens
11 | The Avalanches | Wildflower
12 | Anna Meredith | Varmints
13 | Solange | A Seat at the Table
14 | Frank Ocean | Blonde
15 | Run the Jewels | Run the Jewels 3
16 | Grumbling Fur | Furfour
17 | Parquet Courts | Human Performance
18 | Justin Hurwitz & Cast | La La Land OST
19 | Leonard Cohen | You Want it Darker
20 | Johan Johansson | Arrival OST

Songs
1 | Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds | I Need You
2 | Jessy Lanza | It Means I Love You
3 | Santigold | Can't Get Enough of Myself
4 | Rae Sremmund | Black Beatles
5 | The Avalanches | If I Was a Folkstar
6 | Radiohead | Burn the Witch
7 | Car Seat Headrest | Vincent
8 | A Tribe Called Quest | We the People…
9 | Leonard Cohen | You Want It Darker
10 | David Bowie | Lazarus
11 | Michael Kiwanuka | Cold Little Heart
12 | The Avalanches | Because I'm Me
13 | The Weeknd | Starboy
14 | Frank Ocean | Pink and White
15 | Jessy Lanza | Oh No
16 | Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds | Distant Sky
17 | Dawn Richard | LA
18 | Floating Points | Kuiper
19 | Solange | Cranes in the Sky
20 | A Tribe Called Quest | Kids
21 | La Femme | Ou va le monde
22 | David Bowie | I Can't Give Everything Away
23 | PJ Harvey | The Community of Hope
24 | La La Land Cast | Another Day of Sun
25 | Carly Rae Jepsen | Higher
26 | Skepta | Man
27 | Car Seat Headrest | Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales (Single Version)
28 | Justice | Safe and Sound
29 | Swans | When Will I Return?
30 | Frank Ocean | Ivy
31 | Anna Meredith | Dowager
32 | Run the Jewels | Down
33 | A Tribe Called Quest | The Space Program
34 | Radiohead | Identikit
35 | Babyfather | Meditation
36 | Nicolas Jaar | Three Sides of Nazareth
37 | Parquet Courts | Human Performance
38 | Johan Johansson | Kanguru
39 | Grumbling Fur | Silent Plans/Black Egg
40 | Kaytranada | Glowed Up
41 | Radiohead | Daydreaming
42 | Kevin Morby | I Have Been to the Mountain
43 | David Bowie | 'Tis A Pity She Was a Whore
44 | Jessy Lanza | VV Violence
45 | Britney Spears | Make Me…
46 | Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein | Stranger Things Theme
47 | Common | Black America Again
48 | Charli XCX | Vroom Vroom
49 | PJ Harvey | The Wheel
50 | Anohni | Drone Bomb Me

If we're counting "Blackstar" as a 2016 song I would place it number 3, but I voted for it last year so didn't put it on my list this time.

I don't know what the number 1 song of the year will be in this poll, but it would be pretty interesting if it were "Lazarus", being a 2015 song and all.

Some of the most acclaimed albums simply didn’t click with me this year; and many of the most acclaimed songs off albums I liked didn’t click, either. (I attribute it to the fact I’m getting pretty damn old.) As has been said many times before, 2016 was a miserable year on so many levels, but here are 50 albums and 150 songs that helped me make it through.

Apologies again, notbrianeno, but I've made a very small change to my songs list. I've added DJ Shadow and Run the Jewels' "Nobody Speak" as my #45 song and bumped everything below it down accordingly. Yes, I realize that this ultimately will have almost no effect on the final outcome, but I figure it would be best to get the list out there that totally reflects my opinions.

You can find my revised songs list below...

Songs:

1. Anohni- Drone Bomb Me
2. Maxwell- Lake By the Ocean
3. David Bowie- Lazarus [2015]

6. Tegan and Sara- Boyfriend
7. Solange- Cranes in the Sky

9. Maxwell- 1990x
10. Radiohead- Daydreaming
11. Kero Kero Bonito- Trampoline
12. D.R.A.M. (featuring Lil Yachty)- Broccoli
13. Bon Iver- 22 (OVER S∞∞N)
14. Car Seat Headrest- Drunk Drivers / Killer Whales
15. Chance the Rapper (featuring Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz)- No Problem
16. Jenny Hval- Female Vampire
17. Kanye West (featuring Rihanna)- Famous
18. Bruno Mars- 24K Magic
19. Anohni- 4 Degrees [2015]

Nick wrote:Apologies again, notbrianeno, but I've made a very small change to my songs list. I've added DJ Shadow and Run the Jewels' "Nobody Speak" as my #45 song and bumped everything below it down accordingly. Yes, I realize that this ultimately will have almost no effect on the final outcome, but I figure it would be best to get the list out there that totally reflects my opinions.

In the year Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for Literature, Leonard Cohen says goodbye with this poetry jewel...

I tried countless times to listen to Bowie's Blackstar. I failed each time. It was too painful. It felt like hearing a man dying and not being able to do anything for him. Cohen, was reaching for his hat too. But even if he was heartbroken, his pain did not overtake him. He headed towards the door upright and smiling. Hineni, hineni.
