    With so many exclusives these days, I figure it will be nice to have a separate thread where we can rank them. I can tally it up at the end of the month, make a Best Of list. It can also be a good place for discussion of sclusies that in the store thread tend to get lost in the mix of other convos.

    All the logistics aren’t worked out, we can discuss them here tho. I’ll start by listing sclusies that were announced in the past 2-3 months and are still available. You can rank as many as you want but only top ten will get points. 10 for #1, 9 for #2, etc etc.

    Most of these haven’t been released so it’s a little hard to do a fair and reasoned top 10 based on anything other than anticipation.

    Ha ok. I’ll adjust. As the full albums are released people can give it a score and then I’ll add it to the list. Kind of like a VMP metacritic.

    Not many takers yet so maybe to make it easier we can give 1-5 stars? Perhaps easier than ranking.

    I’ll play. Are we only doing new releases or all sclusies?

    Jackie Cohen is a 5
    Chanel Tres is a 4

    No no....although it’s cool to see your lists @Woob_woob and @Eriatarka. I mean available sclusies. Ones that are in stock and can be streamed too I suppose.

    That way this will be like a new vinyl release VMP forum metacritic thing. And not just new releases, you can include Protomartyr for example.

    Sorry my explanations might not be great. I think though the ideas starting to firm up. And should we rate (out of 10?) or do rankings? I’d say ratings but I’m open, and I can change the thread title if we go that way.

    I’ll go:

    Feels (7 out of 10)
    Floating Points (8 out of 10)
    Protomartyr (8.5 out of 10)
    Sasami (7.5 out of 10)
    Hand Habits (6)
    Julia Jackson (8.5)

    And maybe we should do anything still up in the store, not just recent ones? Open for input. If we go that way I’ll add

    Petite Noir (10)
    serpentwithfeet (9)

    Perhaps put Current or Currently Available in the title? I know we have several Rank the aotm threads from different years in which people also rank the store exclusives from that year. But I think you’re going for something different.

    I don’t have the VMP pressing, but that Novos Baianos record is essential.

    The fact that it is still on the store at that discounted price is a total travesty
