Vote: The Year's Best Music (So Far)

Today's poll has two questions: What are the best albums of the year so far, and what are the best songs? You can pick up to five for each — five albums and five songs. Each comes with two long lists, so you'll have to scroll down to see all of the nominees.

The poll closes July 26. We'll post results here in the blog, and on All Songs Considered, on Monday, July 27.

The artists, albums and songs listed in the poll were pulled from the most popular nominees listeners submitted through this blog. If you don't see one of your favorites in the list, tell us your choices in the comments section below.
