    The idea of this thread is for users to suggest their favourite album of the week. The person who's album suggestion wins, will elect the winning album for the following week, and so on. Same idea as Photo of the Week over at PFM.

    I'll start the list with an album I've been enjoying this week, and pick the winner for next week after some suggestions have rolled in.

    Please choose albums that are available to listen to on Spotify and give a link with a picture so that other users can enjoy them!


    I'll start off the list with:

    Tenson
    Tunng - ...And Then We Saw Land
    Spotify Link

    [​IMG]

    This album puts soft acoustic instruments and electronic accompaniment with beautifully harmonic female / male vocals.

    Nando
    Adele - 19
    Spotify Link

    [​IMG]

    Vocals often compared with Amy Winehouse, with jazzy guitar sometimes combined with trippy drums and deep piano.


    La Toilette
    Anna Calvi - Anna Calvi
    Spotify Link

    Chris Davies

    at present my album of the week must be ADELE 21, great lyrics sung with deeply meaning, wonderful acoustic backing and for a long time an album you can listen from beginning to end.

    Edited by Tenson: Spotify doesn't have the album '21', but for those interested it has '19' - >HERE<

    This week I have been mainly listening to Meat Puppets II, by the Meat Puppets.

    Just got the reissue off amazon.

    I'm so up to date :D.

    Baggy sounding and a with singer who's worse at holding a note than I am (and that's saying something), but I like it.

    Nando, I really liked Adele 19, so maybe I'll get a copy of 21. Good call that one :)

    Jonesi, I actually know Efterklang already, but I only liked Tripper and didn't get on too well with the later ones. Musical Chairs is sounding good so far though (track 1!).

    You win this week Nando! I had to choose Adele 19 since Spotify doesn't have 21 (yet) and I want to stick with music available to everyone. None the less, 19 is great!

    Please choose the winner next Monday.

    I like Asa too, although the beginning of the album is better than the latter half I think.

    Come on people, we need more music exchanges on here :) What was the album you most enjoyed listening to this week?

    I think I liked
