or maybe 2002, i'm not sure :P

 

although it might be tough to handle, but i think it would have been better if we could vote for 8 albums in each category and pointing was like Formula 1 pointing system which is:

1st place 10 points

2nd place 8 points

3rd place 6 points

4th place 5 points

5th place 4 points

6th place 3 points

7th place 2 points

8th place 1 point

I will undoubtedly discover several more good 2008 chill albums in 2009, hence this thread.

Yep, me too...

 

Only got one chill album this year (Eat Static) ... and whilst that one isn't awful I still didn't like it so much to mention it in a toplist.

 

But I bet in some months I'll get the Distant System one and will see that it's super great :P

what does it mean when ppl vote for 2 or 3 chill albums? does that mean they've only listened to those albums?!!? :unsure:<_<

In my case, it means I so far in life only bought 2 or 3 Chill albums dated 2008. I make my list according to albums I own on Discogs.com ..o_O..

I just browsed through your discogs collection and noticed that you have psykovsky's debut two times! Double entry false or you really own it twice? :D

You have the one in the hi-fi and the other in the discman permanently, don't you? :D

I got one CD safe in my box of CD's in another country (Still haven't picked up my stuff from last living place). The second copy is, well yes used to be in my discman pretty much all the time. Until last week when a former friend of mine with a H problem clicked and scratched the CD deep! He is no longer a friend..

 

He really hated that CD. I gave him a punch, he's a big asshole.

 

Why are we offtopping this nice thread??

 

peace

Haven't been listening to any psy this year... mostly because I haven't got any time, I'm working and training so hard that I hardly get any sleep... I'm glad that I have you guys at the end of the year to point the best albums!!!
