Spreading the word here because the more people who participate in this contest, the more interesting the results will be AND well, the prize is a good one.
Who knows if it was the cancelation of the NHL season, the new Pope, or the mere existence of Arcade Fire, but 2005 was the year indie rock got bigger than ever. There were so many great albums, and at least a couple of instant classics, so we decided to open up Stereogum's end-of-year list to everyone. The three of us can't agree on a top 100, much less a top 20.Sorry, I'm not linking directly to where you vote. To vote you'll have to go to Stereogum yourself.
The deal: CLICK HERE to vote on Stereogum's 2005 Readers Poll and we'll randomly select a winner to receive the TOP 20 ALBUMS OF 2005 as determined by your submissions. That way at least one of you won't feel guilty about downloading most of them.
Now, in the comments I will leave my answers to this poll, as will you.
