I may have had that thought cross my mind whilst adding that bit.

But it was a genuine disappointment.

I imagine there was a bit of a backlash because the main guy proved to be a complete dipshit. Shouldn't affect the music but ehhhh.

It's the kind of album that belongs on the "I listened to this once or twice or for about a week but never went back to it the rest of the year" year-end lists.

On the app version, you all keep giving some albums a rating of sunglasses, so that's cool, I guess.

This isn't aimed at you, or anything, IWB, but I was thinking about this earlier and forgot to say anything. If someone is going to rank less than 15 album, should they be given the fill amount of points to distribute, or a fraction, based on how many albums they do include?

The sunglasses happens whenever you put a 8 next to a ). So those are 8s.

I thought about the number of albums vs point allocation thing too, since obviously I can throw more points at single albums having only listed 10 than 15. Nick Cave, Darkthrone, and the Manics were the only albums I plan on checking out eventually but still hadnt gotten to, and I could have waited to add them, however there's a chance I don't even like them anyway. Sort of silly throwing points at stuff I didn't like, which is why I didn't throw a single point at the albums I did listen to but disliked just to make an even 15. Then I just figured well, my list is pretty pointless when bands like bad religion, the Ducky Boys, the welch boys, etc wont even be eligible for a low ranking on peef's tally because I'm the only one who had anything to say about them at all (except br, I think UL mentioned them, but he was the only other one). So I decided it really doesn't matter anyway.

Yeah, I knew what was causing it, just looks goofy on the the phone, lol.

Anyways, the points thing isn't a big deal and I promise, I wasn't trying to single you out. I totally understand and agree with your logic for not including an album you don't like. Makes sense..

Looks like we have a clear winner emerging, barring any major surprises.

Last week I went with my parents to view a local Christmas Lights display (a big one you pay to drive through, and has a massive amount of lights through a large park area). They had a section that I REALLY wish I'd have taken a picture of. Right next to a giant group of light shaped like the state of Utah was a Christmas light version of a mountain man holding a musket. It was couldn't have been more perfect.

You voted for ten albums and five of them already had at least one vote (including Bad Religion). Your votes will count for something.

I didn't put numbers on mine because my list was so small and my listening was much more limited than anyone else's.

And because you're a rule-breaker...admit it.
