Best albums of January according to AOTY users

I sent out a poll, asking AOTY users their top 5 favorite albums of the month, with a goal of finding the best albums of January of this year (2024 if you're seeing this in the future)
The following albums are the top 10 highest scoring with the scale being:
1st place vote= 5 points
2nd place vote= 4 points
3rd place vote= 3 points
4th place vote = 2 points
5th place vote = 1 point

This list is not made with the intention of disrespecting anyone's favorite albums of the month or someones album in general. I already have a plan of how to make the poll process better next month so I hope you like this :)

twikipedia - still-life
Coming in at #10, twikipedia's still-life makes the list with a 26 point total
receiving 2 first place votes from: @maggotbrain and @kyouni
Marika Hackman - Big Sigh
70
At #9 is Big Sigh by Marika Hackman, edging out Twikipedia with a 27 point score.
Interestingly at the time of writing this it's also at #9 on the charts for user score for the year
@Gustavstone07 (display name Gustav) ranked it at number 1 for the month
Ὁπλίτης [Hoplites] - Παραμαινομένη
The #4 user score of the year thus far lands at #8 on this list with an impressive 35 points.
Παραμαινομένη got 3 first place votes from @vanillyiki, @bigmeanie and @zenya
ericdoa - DOA
70
At #7 is DOA by ericdoa, again beating the previous album by a point just like Big Sigh did to still-life
@authenyo is the only user who placed this project at first on their submissison, however an astounding amount of second place votes (5) helped this place higher than the previous albums
Benny the Butcher - Everybody Can't Go
70
#6 is Benny the Butchers newest LP. Even though it's his lowest rated LP of his career it was still enjoyed enough to gain 45 points.
@$PLIT and @Cosmorog2022 gave this their first place slots
21 Savage - american dream
60
Reaching #5 despite its polarizing reception 21 savage scored itself 69 points perhaps due to its sheer amount of appearances on users' respective submissions.
American Dream was 2 peoples favorite album of the month: @jadecantrate and @oAlqby
NIKOWOODYEAR - PROJECT NEON*
80
If you told me this would be the #4 on this list at the start of the month I would have laughed at you, but Project Neon by NIKOWOODYEAR managed to do what many trap albums on here fail to do, get positive feedback.
Continuing the trend of beating out the prior album by a point Project Neon gained itself 70 points.
Projext Neon racked up 6 first place votes: @1892, @rhynoisright, @1rio, @montydog123 @ionwannabehereanymore, and @Wryyys
80
Huge jump in point total here to #3 with ORQUÍDEAS by Kali Uchis, it received 119 points and most importantly my first place vote among others and an abundance of second place votes the first place votes are as follows:
@calup (me), @needlefluujr, @Renisnownas and @display
The Smile - Wall of Eyes
70
At #2 nobody is surprised to see Diet Radiohead up here they scored 175 total points and an insane 16 first place votes. Very impressive considering its late release in the month.
The first place votes: @zilchnil, @asextwin, @unoriginal, @ascension, @_V33_, @mcrjoe_ , @Lexiii, @OnGawd, @whiteman, @jonahworkman, @jjen, @squooshy, @unrealmikel, @Sippix, @Sunny_d, and @jod
glass beach - plastic death
70
#1, the top album of the month is glass beach's sophomore album which currently sits at #2 for the year by user score but on this list it has more points than The Smile with 190. At 23 first place votes its almost faster to name who didn't give it their top spot (not actually though): @NikoMandalas, @fathergary, @Eedeeot_boii079, @Bir9, @SPORK_REVIEWS, @sacri, @DJaycup, @lincoln, @emomu, @snoozeybro, @Karbdashian2, @natebezanson, @lettrs, @kiskaha, @radu123, @MickyT, @RovKo, @LeviScott, @Blasted, @flomink, @44RAV, @CabooseBeech

Thank you all for participating, this was interesting to compile and I think it was a successful experiment, and I'm looking forward to improving on it next month!!
