The Dodos? Really? I saw them early last year at a time when I had not heard of them yet. They were ok but I wasn't inspired to get the CD. And The Walkmen made the top 20 already, I see. Cool.

Yes, really. I haven't talked with anyone who didn't enjoy that album.

I haven't listened to either of those albums more than twice yet, but I like both of them a great deal already.

I'm already thinking I overrated the Los Campesinos! by a few spots...

For all the flak we give Chris Martin for being a tool, at least people in B&C still give credit where credit is due. By my count, Viva La Vida has a damn good amount of points in this.

I think this is a perfect situation for new users "fanan" and "u2mopfomo" to add 2 additional lists to help boost the ratings of our favorite albums.

I don't know why I haven't done this point distribution thing yet. There's about to be another entry from moi if we can keep the polls open for another, like, 10 minutes.
