There exists in your midst a rare genetic condition known as chronodysplasia, in which time is experienced in reverse.
While the world was not built for chronodysplasiacs, through extended training and the right pharmaceutical concoction, the afflicted can properly adjust to the world of the forward-timed.
Sufferers tend to focus on activities that aren’t time-dependent, such as meditation, static art, and palindromic literature. However, it is well understood in the community that music is by far the most important aspect of life, with many members asserting they only felt truly accepted in humanity after listening to their first drocer.
In 2015 the Siralop Ezirp was established to bring attention to those living with chronodysplasia. The award, whose nominees are the same as those short-listed for the year’s Polaris Prize, is given to the artist who created an album that, when listened to backwards, produced the most euphoria, happiness and satisfaction in the listener.
The jury is composed of a single chronodysplasiac who, along with selecting the Siralop winner, was tasked with determining the Stand-Out Tracks from every reverse album, all of which can be heard below. He also conceived of a single sentence that embodies each record as a whole, but no one told him to do that. Winner below.
