PSYNEWS'S: BEST OF 2006

Recommended Posts

Hello psynewsers!

 

Most of you already know (from last year) that, every end of the year, Psynews hosts the competition of the releases!

 

For those who are new on our forums, I'm talking about the "best of 2006" in the psychedelic trance music scene and the main music styles that get listened to by our members.

 

As 2006 is finished, we can officially review all our 2006 albums, or even re-listen, make our TOP 5 best 2006 albums and/or compilations, come to Psynews, post it, and see the results.

 

Albums/compilations that will make your "best of 2006" valid have to be released in the year 2006, and they have to be at least in one of these cathegories: psychedelic trance, full on, neo full on, israeli full on, dark psy, dark full on, forest psy, suomi, goa, oldschool, newschool, progressive trance, progressive-electro trance, ambient, chill-out, psychedelic chill-out, etc. Generally the styles that circulate on Psynews.

 

What you have to do here is to post your TOP 5 releases of 2006, in the right order (meaning that number 1 will be your favourite release of 2006):

 

1. Artist Name (or Group Name, or Project Name) - Album Name - Label - Release Date

2. Artist Name (or Group Name, or Project Name) - Album Name - Label - Release Date

3. Artist Name (or Group Name, or Project Name) - Album Name - Label - Release Date

4. Artist Name (or Group Name, or Project Name) - Album Name - Label - Release Date

5. Artist Name (or Group Name, or Project Name) - Album Name - Label - Release Date

 

This is how we will calculate the scores (number of points):

 

1. gets 5 points

2. gets 4 points

3. gets 3 points

4. gets 2 points

5. gets 1 point.

 

According to your TOP 5, we will create a database, and all albums will have a score (points) and a number of votes.

 

Every album that is mentioned in your TOP 5 has 1 correspondant vote. If an album gets mentioned 10 times, it will have 10 votes; its score (number of points summed) will depend on which position of the TOP 5 it has been included by each one of you.

 

To refresh your memory (or to give you a preview) on what kind of information we provide from our database, click here and you will find the results of the "Best of 2005", as an example.

 

The BEST OF 2006 thread is open between 01.01.2007 - 01.02.2007. We will announce you what time we close the topic on 01.02.2006. This means you will have one month to decide which are the best releases of 2006!

 

You can freely post your "best of 2005" list as you wish, may it be even longer than 5 releases, may it be splitted in genres and subgenres. We just kindly ask you to add also your final TOP 5 at the end of your post... like a best-of of your best-of, only 5 releases that is! This way we will be able to make a calculation and present you a chart.

 

All participants in this "BEST OF" thread can edit their posts as many times as they want, until we close the thread. This means that if you change your mind about your favourite releases of 2006, you can post a new TOP 5, but please use the EDIT POST function of our forums, and don't write a NEW POST.

 

We hope that many of you will participate in this exercise, and remember, the bigger the database gets, the more relevant the results will be!

Here's my first ever top five..

 

1. Ochre - Lemodie (Benbecula) - July-06

2. Spyra - Orphan Waves (Fax +49-69/450464) - March-06

3. Pete Namlook & Gaudi - Re:sonate (Fax +49-69/450464) - January-06

4. Carbon Based Lifeforms - World Of Sleepers (Ultimae Records) - December-06

5. Between Interval - Autumn Continent (Spotted Peccary) - August-06

 

 

 

albums that almost made the list - I'm not happy being able to choose just five, I wanted to squeeze like 10 cds in :( - :

*Ticon - Zero Six After (the only trance record that could have made my list this year - for certain reason I wasn't able to buy much trance, but this was a buy I was very happy with)

*VA - Fahrenheit Project Part 6

*Androcell - Efflorescence

*Secede - Tryshasla (if only this weren't released in 2005!! it'd be right up there in the list kicking ass)

 

Might just make a slight change to the list before the threads closes but this should be it.

 

Edit: first edit to top five made <_<
