About The Album Project, DarinRG wrote:
  Very happy with this genre vote. I was hoping to see Steve Roach - Structures From Silence inducted, as it's such an influential and foundational album to the past 30 years of ambient music (credit to Greg for nominating it), but beyond that one disappointment I'm thrilled with the 12 albums that we inducted.

  Orbus Terrarum for the sake of variety. Plus, it would be kind of sad to see the Orb miss out in an Ambient genre vote. Both solid picks, though.

As far as 2016 songs I'd definitely support, granted I have listened to very little from 2016...

David Bowie - I Can't Give Everything Away (2016)
(The last song on that final album I'd really support voting for in my opinion)
Mitski - Your Best American Girl (2016)

No problem Lax34; Ricky Nelson was so underrepresented in the Song Project and this Artist Vote justified some long-time snubs. Thanks to those who supported it.

On a side note, what 2016 songs are voters thinking of nominating next month in the general vote? I would like to hear some suggestions and I'm curious what's at the top of voters' lists.
