# Introduction

Once again, it’s that time of the year folks. We are gearing up for our end-of-year coverage, with the first announcement of which being the reveal of this year’s lineup for our Album of the Year 2019 write-up series! For the last two years, we’ve tried expanding our coverage to make room for more album write-ups, but this year we’re going back to basics with 31 write-ups across 31 days from 32 different users ([/u/zenits](https://www.reddit.com/user/zenits) & /u/*Earthrise* just had to fuck around and collab to talk about Black Dresses since they dropped two albums this year). Additionally, we usually create these schedules on a first-come, first-serve basis but for this year, myself and /u/waffel113 wanted to take a more curated approach by bringing in our favorite writers and some newcomers with a lot to prove to write about the albums they love that came out in 2019. So, without further ado, here is the lineup!
