My friends and employers at the Polaris Music Prize have introduced a new award — the Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize — designed to honour Canadian classic albums from the before Polaris existed. Think of it as a legacy award.

Knowing my peers, I know they’ll nominate a lot of wonderful, timeless albums for Heritage Prize consideration. Also knowing my peers, I know there are certain types of albums — the weird, the crude, the hilarious — that they may not take seriously enough to consider nomination-worthy.

I fixed that problem for them.
