This year’s vote was an absolute fight to the death!

There were well over 60 albums nominated by the community, which were narrowed down by half to make the actual voting process a little less daunting for the general public.

The original poll consisted of 43 of some of the year’s finest desert/stoner/psych releases, which was then narrowed down to the top 10 shortly after realizing the initial results were slightly askew.

We wanted the vote to be as fair as possible, and I hope the recount didn’t cause any resentment from any of the bands who were nominated (having said that, in the end it all comes down to how determined and dedicated the fans are — such is the nature of the democratic process)

    Just wanted to say thanks to all of the nominees for all their outstanding work in 2017. I think I can speak for everyone when I say – your music makes all of our lives worth living!

    And another huge thank you to everyone who voted – 1674 is a pretty hefty amount of people! Hope to see you all again at the end of 2018!
