With everyone creating their end-of-year lists just a month ago, it made me think, "Why wait until the end of the year to start ranking albums?"
1 post per user a month in which you post the album artwork, and if you wish a review or the reasons why you are selecting that album for the album of the month. Discussion of albums is better suited for the 2013 New Releases (http://bonnaroo.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=cds&action=display&thread=30062) or the Upcoming Releases Infinity (http://bonnaroo.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=cds&action=display&thread=23570) threads
The album that you are selecting for your Album of the Month must have had it's release date in that month. Even though you've been listening to Jim James all month because it leaked early it is still not eligible until the month it is set to be released.
That's it. Have at it. Hopefully you guys think this is a good idea.

If you're not saying that's your album of the month, then don't post it in this thread. PMO asked very clearly and very patiently in the OP that you only post your favorite album of the month in this thread. He even went through the trouble of providing the link for the new releases of 2013 and the upcoming releases of 2013 threads. You should go post that in the upcoming releases of 2013 thread if you're not saying it's your album of the month. Then come post it in here if/when you're ready to vote for it.
It's just for the sake of keeping things organized, man.
