I fell asleep (British) and only got to vote for 1 category :skull: 

 

But I like most of the results.

So... was this some sort of multi-hour spanning Discord sparring match? :deadbanana: 

 

I've never participated in these (well... all two of them that have occurred since I joined) as I usually spend time listening to older stuff. Probably have listened to less than 25% of the nominated songs and albums.

 

Nice to see Yola and Erika (despite Ace dragging the latter :cries:), but I sound like a broken record shilling them by now. 

 

Japanese Breakfast's album is strong. No problems with her winning! It sounds... content but in the best way, with enough going on in the instrumentals to maintain interest for multiple listens.

 

Oh wow, Adele really has all demographics in the palm of her hand, doesn't she?

We kept the sparring to a minimum! I dare say this was our most peaceful one yet?

 

Two things:

 

1) Lorde is the only artist so far to have won Album twice; last night, she was barely mentioned. Talk about a fall from grace!

 

2) @Wickedmentioned doing these for entire decades. Who's free next week to hold a "multi-hour Discord sparring match" on the 2000s or the 2010s?
