You Pick The Top Albums ov 2013


Since the site’s inception, we’ve held annual community polls to determine our favourite records – but what of the years prior to the Bowl’s existence? Today is your chance to let us know what album(s) would have made your “Best of 2k13” list.

A few months ago on the Toilet ov Hell Social Club I asked the group to participate in a poll to try and gauge if there was concensus on which albums kicked the most arse from the utterly meaningless years before the Flushening®. So starting with 2013 and descending from there, I asked the group to nominate only their most cherished records and upvote all the stuff they dug at the time/dig now. The votes poured in, and while we did end up with a pretty good cross-section of what the diverse demographic dug, it occurred to me that a bunch of you dwelling in the doldrums of Disqus might like to voice your opinions too. The way this will run is via essentially the same method as we do for the end-of-year community album polls.

The Rules!

  1. Don’t be a dingus
  2. Make sure all comments are shown before supplying your entry
  3. List your favorite album(s) in the comments
  4. Don’t nominate an album that sucks
  5. Crucify that fucken ctrl+f to make sure you aren’t being a reposting dingus
  6. Upvote the other albums you love
  7. Downvoting is useless
  8. Double-check the record you’re nominating is from 2013
  9. Don’t be a dingus!

Now just to get you started, I’ll post a heap of the polling options we already have to refresh your memory of some of the albums from 2013.
