I know seriously. This is great.

I was impatiently trying not to post anything in the midst, but secretly I wanted someone else to so I could.

Indeed. I'm glad there's at least one Beatles album in the top 20.

If I were to name my top 3 albums from the 60s it would actually be 8-6, in that order. Bizarre. WL/WH was my number 2.

Oh, more appear to have arrived while I was typing. Well, assuming DDN is in the top 2, it's nice to see my top 2 Sonic Youth albums in the top 5 (DDN, Evol). Also while i do prefer WL/WH, Nico totally deserves to be there. I'm now fairly sure that 2 of my top five (Pink Moon and Kind Of Blue) won't be making an appearance though.

Not bad, not bad. For me the biggest surprise has to be no Pixie's, and the lack of Dylan is also a tad odd, but that still has to count as a top 20 that's more representative of my tastes than any I've seen voted on before.
