Album Of The Year 2014 – Vote Now

It’s time to have your say.

In the past years it has become clear that you love to vote the “Album Of The Year.” That’s cool with us. We love the buzz around the polls all the same.

Yet, one thing we try to do is keep our polls in a spirit where the light shines on all the bands and artists that have been creative in the past year. We make introductions to the bands on the list easy by attaching a playlist with many of the participants and by passing info and audio links to you voters, the community. You can take it from there.

This time, we have literally spent weeks to collect the albums for this poll, went from obscure websites to long-running magazines and back. And we are incredibly thankful to the people who provided us with info from far away places. It’s strange to see that in 2014 it is still so hard to get on overview on what the ska/rocksteady/early reggae world has going on around the world and around the generations.

Here’s how you can yote.
