    The Album Cup XII is coming!

    I wanted to start this next month but apparently there is some desire to keep this going. Shout-out to Carbon and his great work with the two previous installments, which made legendary Janet and Yoko part of the hall of champions.

    Nodding to my return as a host, we'll see artists previously featured in this game coming back to get their redemption!

    For the first time, if you want to play this, you'll have to refer to the list I'll post below, pick one artist and nominate an album by them that's never been into contention. An artist that is not new, with an album that is new to the game (but released in any year) - clear?




    There is an important twist in this game, which I borrow from the concept of Survivor: Redemption Island.

    First, we'll relive the spirit of the first Cup, in which knockouts generated a lot of excitement and drama too. So since round 1 ( ) we'll see eliminations right away, based on the lowest-ranked albums). But here's the thing: the losers don't leave the competition. Instead, they go to the Redemption Jukebox, where they'll battle each other until round 7 - the highest-ranked album in this special vault returns to the official competition, along with the 3 official finalists. Three more rounds (also eliminating) and we'll find the champion.

    Here's the arrangement of groups that you don't need to understand but I'm saving so I won't forget it myself...

    Regular Group
    R1 6X4
    R2 5X4
    R3 4X4
    R4 3X4
    R5 2X4
    R6 2X3
    R7 1X4
    R8 1X4
    R9 1X3
    R10 1X2

    Redemption Jukebox
    R1 0
    R2 1X4
    R3 2X4
    R4 3X4
    R5 4X4
    R6 6X3
    R7 5X4
    R8 0
    R9 0
    R10 0


    INSTRUCTIONS

    Use the following list to select your artist, and send their album VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE to me. If there's any mistake or doubt, I'll hopefully be able to explain it to you. Once you've secured your artist, you can send me the playlist that will represent the album, consisting of 10 tracks preferrably with links. Remember this Cup is brutal so I recommend you to place strong tracks right in the beginning!

    sent my nom!

    this will be exciting, as much as I love the old rules, it's become too samey (and I'm too uncreative to do surprise spins) so looking forward to this revamped version

    I will definitely join!

    A shame two of my favs have only released one full-length album so far though. One of them is releasing a new one this year, and another two faves of mine are releasing next month as well, so this cool round comes a bit too early for me i guess

    so all you have to do is choose ten songs and do nothing more later in the competition?

    It's much better if you vote and actually take part. I don't like it when people are quick to nominate an album, forcing us to listen to it, but they don't actually play the game.

    By the way, I think certain members should get priority.

    For example, if CrazyCrazy or trebor (just 2 examples) somehow didn't register on time, then somebody else should be removed for them.
