All previous nominations have been moved to the queue and will become a Album of the Week soon! Feel free to keep nominating...

Need some ideas? A random page is a good place to start!

CriteriaEdit

  1. Please add your nomination to the bottom of the list below. Only nominate albums with existing song pages. Nominations where the album name is a red link will be rejected.
  2. Studio albums, live albums, compilation albums, mixtapes, and soundtracks are eligible to be nominated. EPs are also acceptable, but if you are going to nominate an EP, make sure it has variety, and not simply the same song released in different versions, or else your nomination will not be accepted.
  3. A nomination needs to be something more than just "I like this album." At a minimum give a thoughtful, personal reason why you like the album. (In other words, if your reason could apply to any album, or it is just trivia about the album, it needs something more.) Keep the reason short and to the point. You have about 4 or 5 lines to use.
  4. When providing a reason for nomination, please make sure that it is written in coherent English. It doesn't need to be perfect grammar, but it should show that some effort was put into it. Anything else will be held back until it is corrected.
  5. Check to ensure that the album has not been Album of the Week before.
  6. Do not use any profanity in your nomination, unless it is part of the album title. Instead, choose a cleaner word or simply don't use it at all. ("Hell" and "damn" are the only words acceptable.)
  7. Albums should have album art and be formatted according to Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Albums before being moved to the queue.
  • Although not necessary for inclusion as Album of the Week, it is beneficial if the song pages include YouTube and audio links whenever available. If you love the album enough for it to be AOTW, let others enjoy the music too!
While you are at it, you may also want to nominate a few of the songs for Song of the Day!

Example nomination (put real nominations in next section):Edit


{{subst:AOTWNom|Album=梶浦由記 (Yuki Kajiura):Fiction (2003)|Reason=This album is from the only artist that I have liked every single song that she has worked on. So, although I neither have this album, nor have I heard every song on it, I already know that it is an excellent album. It also contains three songs from the anime series .hack//SIGN. "Key of the Twilight" is an upbeat song with excellent lyrics and just makes you want to go off on a quest. "Fake Wings" has a soothing melody and likewise has well written lyrics. "Open Your Heart" has two versions, only one of which is on this album. There are very few lyrics to this song, but it still is a pleasure to listen to.|Preferred Date=August 6, 2009 (Anniversary of album's original release date)}}
