I'll start a recommendation thread for 2002, but I don't have a big recommendation list for 2001 besides Things We Lost in the Fire, but I'm not even sure it needs a push. 2002 is a different story, lesser known gems like Thought for Food (hopefully moderately acclaimed will be in time for that one) or Finally We Are No One need a push.DaveC wrote:Well Nassim, in the old system, 'Relationship of Command' would have been eliminated. With the wildcard system, it has a chance. I think a decent chance but only time will tell. I for one will not be voting for 'Viva La Vida'. Maybe we should start a not-recommended thread.
I'm not too disappointed for Relationship of Command, post hardcore is not exactly the forum favorite genre so it's already nice to see it have decent showing on this and the other 2000 poll, it fared much better than other albums on genres "on the fringe".
I am much more disappointed by the results for The Moon and Antarctica, it's one of indie rock most important albums, and that's not a genre that completely flies under the radar around here ; it's also not overlooked by critics so it makes it even more surprising that it can't get much traction around here. And well, as much as I listen to many genres from many decades, indie from 95 to 2005 is still the major backbone of my musical culture.
Well, at least for once I have the critics on my side, they think it's the 6th best album of the year.
Not criticizing the method in any manner by the way, I think it's a great way to compensate for some years being stacked more than others, but I was genuinely wondering which "kind of" year would be more favorable for the wildcard.
