The votes are in for our annual readers poll and the elves have been dragged out of their post-Christmas slumber to count them. We offered you 99 wonderful records to choose from, all of which had received at least a 3.5-star rating from our reviewers over the past year. These are the 49 albums that didn’t make the final 50. And let me tell you, there are some shocking exclusions here. So shocking that we couldn’t in all good conscience have our year-end countdown without giving a passing nod to all the runners up. We’re just nice like that. More detailed roundups to come for numbers 50–1…
