Traditional Irish Music
Now here is a difficult question. How do you pick album of the year? We have taken a look at the album reviews that we have done since we started here on TradConnect to try and establish what might be album of the year for 2012.
We had planned to pick 10 albums or any album that had over 200 views. Some albums have already been given a helping hand by being Album of the Month already. We ended up picking 15. So based on comments that we receive to this discussion we are going to narrow it down quite a bit as we try to pick Album of the Year.
Albums that receive comments below will stay in the running and ones that don't may just drop off. It will all be a bit subjective so let see where we get to.
