Let’s Do It Again: Announcing The 2007 Idolator Pop Critics Poll

Nov 16th, 2007 // 12 Comments

A few Idolator readers who write about music may have noticed an invitation in their inbox today; still others will be receiving one soon. We’re proud to announce the 2007 Idolator Pop Critics Poll (Idolator Pop 07 for short), our continuation of last year’s Jackin’ Pop survey. (Of course we changed the name. You didn’t think we’d call it that twice, did you?) But the early invite doesn’t mean the deadline is early: we’re asking for ballots no later than Friday, December 21 at 5 p.m. EST.

Chances are if you write about music regularly we’ve already got an invite on its way to you, but if you want to be considered, email poll@idolator.com and include your name, your email, links to your blog and/or some pieces you’ve written during 2007. (If you primarily write for print, the name of your outlet[s] and a short list of recent work would be great; URLs to web-available work is even better.) We’re proud of last year’s poll and expect good things from this one as well. So should you.

    No commenters are allowed to play along?!? What kind of blog is this? (sarcasm) I call shenanigans.

  2. Catbirdseat

    Are we still eligible even if there isn’t one, single, solitary album that came out in 2007 that we can say we thought was actually “good?”

  3. Catbirdseat

    (and please note: that was a hyperbolic joke; not a request for commenters to flood in with “OH YEAH, what about _____ or _____? Or what about ______?”)

    @Catbirdseat: You could always just vote for Tracks, Artists, and Reissues.

    i hate music, it’s got too many notes.

    I can’t hardly wait for the litany of whiny bitches who will cry for months afterward because their ballots were eaten up by the Idolator Computer Googleplex 8000.


  7. Michaelangelo Matos

    Those whiny bitches have a point; I’m one of them. No way I wanted last year’s ballots disappeared, and this year we’ve found a workaround so that they won’t be.

    Do you still have the database or are the ballots lost forever?

    @Matos: Likewise. Psyched for this year though.

    You know this’ll suck.
