Last week we completed our writers’ lists of their top 10 americana albums ever. Since then we have been busy tallying up the totals to produce a shortlist of 20 albums. Our writers will now choose their top five from the shortlist below. Five points will be awarded for each writer’s first choice, four for their second choice and so on down to one point for their fifth choice. The points will then be added up to produce the AUK writers’ collective top 10 americana albums ever. These will then be revealed in a couple of weeks time. As ever, readers comments are welcome on our omissions, your additions and anything else you wish to say.
