Also thank you to Joaquim for running this. It must be a pain in the ass. I think the votes will come in quicker for the 90's like the 60's/70's because there's a better organized canon of classic albums there.
Also, it seems like there was more activity this time because we did the thread at night EST. I know at least I was able to post live while in the past we did it in the day so I couldn't.
