I didn't consider the Tool at all tbh, it's typical Tool whom I love but I would want more than typical for it to be close To album of the year

Starcrawler is an album I'd love to see in the rock poll,

The Harding will get votes from me, great album. Dope Lemon a very very close third for me too, may have to revisit that. Can't be allowed not to be in the final poll.

Edit: In fact Band Maid ain't getting votes from anyone but me so Dope Lemon is in.

Unloved on here unfortunately Durly, their debut Colfax is even better imo!

Agreed Critter feels like it's an earlier piece but put on the album anyway..Black Finch I'm not there with yet either but it feels like I might come around on that one
