Rock the vote 2011 - Top-20 albums of the year!

For the 5th year in a row, my dear friend Gone4sure organizes the vote for the best albums of the year by Greek bloggers. I have taken part in this since the first time back in 2007, a thing I do with pleasure and fun. Second time now that I am going to do it through my music blog and not my design blog.
So how is it done? Let's see:

01. We vote from the 1st of December our 20th favourite album of the year. On the 2nd of December the 19th and so forth until the 20th of December when we vote our number 1 favourite album. The countdown should be evaluative and not random. And we post one album per day, no delays, to keep up the rhythm and fun of it. Best posted before 22:00 each night. Anyone who wants to do this but not post each day bit make the full list on the last day, can e-mail Gone4sure before the 1st of December their list.

02. We vote only new albums released in 2011 (no compilations, re-releases, live recordings EPs smaller than 30 minutes in duration etc) according to their official release date and not when we happened to listen to them Don't fall victims of hype but make it really be your favourites. Let your subjectivity triumph!
03. Keep your posts small. Most of us have little time to spare.

04. 20 disks are the minimum. Do not vote for less. Only these are eligible for the total vote. Any list with less than 20 albums will not be accounted for in the final tally.

05. All who want to participate can state it with a comment on Gone4sure's blog until the 30th of November. There is almost no time! As I said in my introduction, you can be a guest at someone else's blog if you do not have your own.

06. The points for every album from no.20 till no.1 for the final tally will be like this: Νο.01=35 Νο.02=29 Νο.03=24 Νο.04=20 Νο.05=17 Νο.06=15 Νο.07=14 Νο.08=13 Νο.09=12 Νο.10=11 Νο.11=10 Νο.12=09 Νο.13=08 Νο.14=07 Νο.15=06 Νο.16=05 Νο.17=04 Νο.18=03 Νο.19=02 Νο.20=01

This is the reader that gathers all the posts from all participants.

There is a Google+ page as well.

Twitter hashtag is #blogovision
