I'm voting for Korwar.
Although it didn't hit me at first, tracks of side B are just incredibly well fit for my taste.

It doesn't bothers me if Igor pulls through, it's a great album but I find More Arriving to be a lot more interesting.

Glad you liked it Smile

I'm shocked it's this close of a fight. I didn't think a somewhat obscure record from India had a chance against our #1 on the charts...

Sarathy Korwar is excellent. Like people have already mentioned, it suffers in the MC/rapping departments, but the instrumentals are fantastic. It'll land near the end of my 2019 chart.

I've overplayed Igor a bit last year, but songs like Gone Gone/Thank You and Are We Still Friends? are still a masterclass in contemporary R&B, soul and hip hop production and aesthetics. Lyrics are honest and likeable throughout the entire album, even on the lesser songs like I Don't Love You Anymore and Running Out Of Time.

It's always cool to see an underdog upset, but Igor is a better album here imo so it gets my vote.

Similar here. I like Igor but it's not exactly my thing I suppose. Really like the rhyhms and especially the saxophone on the Korwar album. The sax reminds me of Sons of Kemet/ The Comet is Coming, which is cool.
