Re: AOTY 2016......Album Of The Year

Salve Ramon,

It is not easy to 10 albums on a choice of about 600 which is definitely not possible to listen to them all .... I I had at least another 10 can be inserted, but in the end you must choose

Re: AOTY 2016......Album Of The Year

Thanks Mariocc.....I've noticed the last year that there are many different ideas on the list of top 10 best .....better so .... it will be a stimulus to deepen artists who do not know and who are appreciated by you and all the other

Re: AOTY 2016......Album Of The Year

I'd like to also enter the 2016 albums .... Anima Mundi .. Airbag ... Riverside ... Disconnect .... David Wallimann ..... The Mute Gods ...

.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ...........................
The greatest disappointment of 2016 ..... the new album of Altavia .... after the excellent first album I was expecting a second album on the same level or higher .... and instead have preferred a lighter sound to enlarge the listeners but the quality is definitely dropped

Re: AOTY 2016......Album Of The Year

I typically don't buy enough new releases to have much of an opinion but one album that seems to have received a lot of praise elsewhere that I don't see anyone mentioning on here is "the clockwork fable" by Gandalf's Fist. Maybe it's just one of those that has slipped under most people's radar on here but on certain other sites it seems to be rated very highly. Maybe one or two others are like that too.

Re: AOTY 2016...Album Of The Year

mike413, have access to about 600 albums is inevitable that many very interesting albums are not included in the lists .... my top 10 is definitely partial and was compiled on the few albums that I know .... definitely Jim Vaxman The Fish for their greater knowledge .... will surely have more many opportunities to do more appropiate choices .... remains my invitation to publish your lists TOP 10 would be interesting for everyone and would also serve to bring out so many albums that maybe then they will not find place in the Top 20 definitive

I quite like Gandalf's Fist. In fact, their 2013 album "A Day In the Life..." made my top 10 that year. I just haven't had a chance to get to "The Clockwork Fable" yet. 3 cd's is a lot to take in.

Re: AOTY 2016......Album Of The Year

Interesting how our top ten lists are so different from each other. Only two of mine made it on someone else's. Although I believe the voting was lackluster this year.
