I still had the best covers in my never-accepted two-disc, dance-oriented submission.

I think the e-mail may have been rigged. I'm investigating. The investigation shall henceforth be known as the Screwtape Letters.

I don't know how Screwtape hasn't won this thing yet...he did best in the awards last time to...surely if all the awards were combined we would have to conclude his playlist was the best...yet it does not win...puzzling

I'm going to have to have someone else do the awards before people start thinking they are rigged. Believe me when I say I was more surprised than anyone else.

There was only a certain number of people involved with these awards - not everyone who participated in the game and voted in the polls did them, so there's the major reason for the difference.

I keed. I keed. I absolutely believe it - your playlist was great.

I just think a lot of people who vote in the polls don't listen to the playlists, but the critics do, and that's where the differences come from.

I think that is a big part. Hopefully, the covers and concepts in the Symphonic Album Game will get more people to listen.
