Is it solipsistic in here or is it just me?

So the ALC is back! We'll use this thread to sign up for weeks, link to previous threads, etc etc.

For those not familiar with how the ALC works, basically one user picks an album from 2016 that they really love and want people to listen to. They post a thread about it (here's an example) along with their own thoughts about the album. Then, everyone listens to the album throughout the course of that week and discusses it on the thread.

There are no limits on what genre, or whatever, post any album that's come out in 2016. I do have three requests though.

1. Please make it an album that's actually released, not one that leaked and is due out in a month
2. It would be beneficial to everyone here if the album was easily accessible, whether through a streaming service of some kind or something.
3. Please make it an album that everyone hasn't already heard. Use your discretion and common sense, but know that we don't a thread dedicated to the new Kanye album, we'll all be talking about it anyways.

These would help to keep the club going I think and keep people engaged.

We can leave the threads up for a week, two weeks, more, I don't care, whatever people think is reasonable. You don't have to have the album listened to that week, we all get backed up with stuff, so whenever you listen to the album, feel free to post in its thread (we'll keep track of the threads here), but it would be preferable if everyone was listening to the album around the same time span so everyone can discuss it together.

Also, users who would like to go but have not gone yet will get priority in posting order, so if we're two months down the road and one user posted back in February but wants to post again, but another user who hasn't posted also wants to do his/her first post, the second user will get priority. However, people can post multiple times, obviously, we want to keep this going as long as possible.

So that's it! Post here if you're interested, and then we can get things started once someone has an album they'd like to post. We can start this Monday if someone is already ready, or we can wait til another week, whatever you all want.

I'd like to do mine perhaps in the second week of ALC?

I'm interested and could probably write something up for Monday if need be. If literally anyone else wants to go first, go for it. I think I'd ideally like to wait for the first week of March, since February looks to have a couple releases I'm particularly interested in.

Also, not to be an ass by saying this, but maybe we should have restrictions of some kind on a "relevance threshold?" I'm explicitly saying here that I think spending a week of the ALC's time discussing the new Kanye or Animal Collective, two albums we're all likely going to be listening to and discussing all over the forum anyway, might be a bit redundant? But maybe that's just me. I don't care if we decide not to impose those restrictions, and I'd hate to box out users by making a broad like "No Best New Music" rule or something, but I think some consideration could be taken in picking things that aren't the Album of the Now or whatever.

Hooray welcome back ALC! I'll take week three I suppose though if someone really wants to go before me I don't mind taking a later slot

I have one that would be ready to go for Monday too if Satie would prefer waiting, just checked and it's up on Spotify. Is there a place I can check to make sure it's available in all markets tho?

I'm tempted to do this just so I can get everyone to listen to the new Brokencyde. Should I do it?

It'll help me pad the negative end of my 2016 ratings in my Diary thread, so go ahead.

See, this is why I think guidelines should maybe be enforced for the club. We don't need the kind of "force everyone to listen to Brokencyde!" idea that sets up a poor precedent.

To be fair, Charlie actually likes Brokencyde. It's just as inexplicable as people liking indie folk. I'm sure I'll be forced to listen to a Sun Kil Moon album at some point. I might as well be forced to listen to a Brokencyde album.
