Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother

I know it's far from their most popular or recognised album, but I love it; the experimental weirdness of side one, then three almost perfect acoustic tracks, followed by more weirdness. It's probably my most listened to album from this year, along with Black Sabbath's first, Tull's Benefit, Syd Barrett's Barrett, Genesis Trespass, Fire and Water, After The Goldrush, Lizard, The Wake of Poseidon, and Byrds Untitled. Can't pick 'em all.

Great year and I wasn't even alive: Who - Live at Leeds, Beatles - Let it Be, Miles Davis - Bitches Brew, S&G - Bridge Over Troubled Water, Kinks - Lola Versus Powerman, Velvet Underground - Loaded

Personal favorite and my nomination:

George Harrison - All Things Must Pass

Decided to incorporate the 2020 poll in line with these annual polls Durly, which will be after the 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010 polls I'm assuming the Album of 2020 will be in the summer months mate.

Glad it's not just me then. I don't expect it to fare too well against so many popular rivals this year though.

Doesn't distract from it's greatness if only three or four vote for AHM

Only thing I have on clear is Bomb Records Yardbirds anthology, and that's a cracker.. Took me hours to scratch off all Clapton's parts though

Worth the effort.

Have Force Majeure on clear... no reason, it's just what was available when I bought it.
