That's right, album cup lovers! Even though our beloved game host Wardo has left the forum, his album cup legacy will live on through me as the once temporary & now probably permanent host!

His creativity in this game will probably stay unmatched because I'm an unimaginative hoe, but I hope this will still remain a nice opportunity to explore new music. I am cool with being the Kelly to his Beyoncé, the Xtina to his Britney, the Demi to his Selena.

As I'm still really busy, this is just a heads-up that the Cup is indeed coming, but I haven't got the theme or rules devised yet. So no applications for now. Just keep it in mind, enjoy this Maddy banner, be excited, dream about it day & night, and it will officially start when you least expect it! :D

Yours truly,
Carbs

♉ THEME ANNOUNCEMENT & NOMINATIONS ♉

Image

Get ready for the highest level of uninspired reaching in an Album Cup theme yet!!!

666 is often called "the number of the beast" and is considered spooky and devilish. Not to mention that it consists of three numbers 6, and you all know the latin word for 6...
SEX - a satanic activity of the youth! :)

2016 was the year of many celebrity deaths and the Trump victory. Guess which number is prominent in it... that's right, 6!

Lots of eerie things around the number six, which is why it is perfect to be the main theme of the 13th ALBUM CUP! That's right - 13! Yet another evil number that brings bad luck. So it is only fitting that the Album Cup 13 features the number 6 as its theme!


Nominate any album released in a year that contains the number six, e.g. albums released in:

Most of the pre-90's albums don't have 10 tracks.
Is it OK to nominate an album which only has 8 or 9 songs?

10 songs would be very preferable. I could tolerate 9 if you have absolutely no other choice. In that case you would have to repeat one song in Round 10.
