      here we are. pick your #1 of 2016.
       
      these are all records that were cited in the nominations thread 4 times or more. this seemed like a healthy cutoff, and also allowed for less than 50 choices which is the max for a single poll question. there were some cool picks that didn't make the cutoff, alas. some of the top contenders were as expected, although Danny Brown and Huerco S got a lot of love also.
       
      only one choice is possible in this poll, as we've already pooled together the top x based on citations. this isn't so much about which record was the most generally appreciated in 2016 - though there will be a winner in the end - but more about which records were most important to individuals and if there is a pattern there. I'm interested to see if this will result in some more diversity.

      can't remember who normally does this, or if it even is done by a regular person. anyway, post your contenders for AOTY itt (LPs only, let's have a separate thread for EPs) and let's follow with a poll for the top picks.
       
      my top pick currently:
       

       
      other picks:
       
      Nails - You Will Never Be One of Us
      Ital Tek - Hollowed
      The Body - One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache
      Shackleton - Devotional Songs
      Neurosis - Fires Within Fires
      Sumac - What One Becomes
      JK Flesh - Rise Above
      Dälek - Asphalt For Eden
      Plaid - The Digging Remedy
       
      you will notice the distinct absence of elseq and that is because I don't consider it an "album". Ae seem to be moving away from that concept entirely and I'm keen to see where it goes. but all things equal, I do consider elseq the best music of 2016.
       
      honourable mention to Andy Stott - Too Many Voices. this still has some classic Andy moments but it's a bit inconsistent and it hasn't pulled me like his other works. it may grow on me. some killer tracks for sure though but not solid through and through. the opening track is one of the most annoying things I've heard all year.
       
      dishonourable mention to Machinedrum - Human Energy. ffs. yeah it's good but I fucking hate it.
       
      also, I just realised there was a new Sepalcure LP this year and I haven't even spent any time with it. damn.
