it's march already and we haven't done anything like this yet?

edit:

feel free to leave your votes for your top 10 albums of 2020 in this thread. 
the first entry will receive 10 points, the second 9 points and so on.
voting will be possible til the end of april.
we will hopefully use a script to automatically evaluate the results so please keep your votes in the following format:

Uptempo:

1. Artist Name - Album 
2. Artist 2 - Album 2

Downtempo:

1. Artist Name - Album 
2. Artist 2 - Album 2

________

i have a pityful amount of new music from the last year, so i'll vote at a later point in time when i have catched up. post your suggestions for contenders by voting! ;)

The people who were doing the official polling have kinda.. uhh.. disappeared.

I blame corona.

You're free to give alternative options!

then let's just do it ourselves. we can hope that someone who can automatically evaluate the votes jumps in by the end of april, otherwise we'll have to do it manually.

What about a Poll for a new Mod who is under 66 Years old? I am out, of that election! i know that you all love me from the deepest Rift of your Soul but i have no time for that....Beer, Borderlands 3, My Warhammer Cllection, Deep Meditation and my adopted son from Vietnam are stealing my Time. i would suggest Recussion Loop or Astral Projection or Tsotsi for the position of a young Peoneer Psyneewsler. Just belive me, i have a red dot on my forehead.

you would probably be the younger option at least both me and recursion are damn near in our forties. i think you should be this young peoneer mod. :) :+1:

Curious even if you were "tongue in cheek" but what has the age of the mods to do with things like this poll <_< ?

3. Global Sect

you can edit your original post to make it easier for the automatic counting script to function if we will be able to use it.

but i have no idea how we could count a label as best release of 2020.

Heya peepz, good to see you guys are on it. I did this poll for the last three or so years, but its popularity declined and this time I have other things on my mind.
Work related stuff... it's busier than past years, which is good for business :D

I'm still here, just a bit more on the sideline. And that damn corona prevents all those nice parties. That one hurts.
I'll post my favs here soon.

I have been quite out of the loop, mainly been discovering new Techno. Perhaps this thread might give me some motivation/inspiration to see what's out there within the psychedelic realm. In times like these music as a reality escapism, is more necessary than ever I guess.

Could anyone point me in the direction of something new which is mindblowing? Something which teleports my brain to another dimension preferably. :D Or else I'll just have to go dig up some old tried and tested lysergenic brain-melting fluoro neuro-delic Sponge Bob mind-juices.

Old School Sound with mind melting moments - Triquetra - Human Control
Fast psychotic smooth psytrance - Aion feat. Kirenaj - Balder

Probably the most mind melting. Then Triquetra honestly if you haven't head it yet.  I think it's been a good year for music.
