Classic Rock Bottom

Yes folks, it's December, time to give out some prestigious CRB awards!  Most of you know the rules (although there is one slight adjustment which will actually save you time), but since we have at least one newbie that will absolutely be participating this year, let's review.  Below you will find a Top 10 Albums nomination section as well as several award categories.  Feel free to participate in as many categories as you like.  But keep in mind, I will only include in the final ballot the categories that have a consensus of at least two nominees.  Basically, if a category only has a few participants and none of the nominees are the same, that category will be scratched.  So don't sweat it, we'll see how it goes.

The first section asks for your personal Top 10 Albums of 2017.  Put what you want on your list.  If you really like an album that leans away from rock or classic rock, that's okay.  It's your list.  I need you to put them in order from 1 to 10 of course.  I will use all of the lists that are returned to me to construct the Official CRB Top 10 Albums of 2017 list.  The number one album on this list will be named the CRB Album of the Year.  

After that, you just fill in the blanks.  I will include the category and room for 3 nominations from each member.  Make sure to put these in order, with number 1 being the nominee you most want to see win that category.  If you skip a category, who cares?  I don't.  I'll do my best to put together a ballot that is representative of our member's preferences.  

The nomination portion will remain open until December 21st, 2017 at midnight (Eastern).  It will be sent to you via private message as well as being posted on this site and over on the Facebook page.  Nominations are open to all members.  Please send your response to me in a private message by the deadline so that the final ballot will be a surprise to everyone.  That final ballot will then be sent to you by private message as well as being posted in both places for the final voting process.  

If you have any questions, drop me a line.  I'll get back to you as soon as I can.  I thank you for your participation, and may the nomination process begin...

Best Reissue.

Only individual releases count or whole box sets can qualify as well?

(Like the Sweet box set)

Yes Yngve, box sets or individual reissues are fine.  Or a series of reissues.  For example, a year or two ago Led Zeppelin reissued most of their albums, so that would qualify as a series of reissues.

Even though it for a long time looked like a pretty dry and dull music-year, it's not any worse than the last 10-15 years or more, looking at my top 10. Actually I had a pretty hard time narrowing it down to 10. 3 albums, that could had made it, was left of, and it might had been 3 different albums in a month or so, because for me, there has been a few very good albums, but probably more "good" albums this year than the last couple of years, which again had 2 or 3 VERY strong albums. There's only one of those this year imo.

What constitutes the Lifetime Achievement Award?

It's open to any artist that you feel has made a significant contribution to rock in general or even to your love of rock music.

Nominations are now closed.  Thank you for participating.  The final ballot will be up soon.

You are very welcome.
