Cheers fange, but please note I said I wasn't gonna vote, as that requires due diligence. Doesn't mean I'm not going to comment, or delete the bons mots already up.

Pity Ray you're not in this anymore. We're stuck then with the second rate Des Lynam's and Tommy Smythes now....

To be fair, Ray, you think every list apart from your own and Copehead's is dross...

Not so. I call them as I find them. Only two (I think) of the eight are ones I voted for in the first round. Some have Bowie on them. On a cursory glance, all the 24 new tracks are new to me, but from what I know of the artists, I don't fancy any of them.

Strange as it may seem to many here, I like far more music than I dislike, but so many posters manage to find my hard spots. It's why I started that thread on musicality. It's strange to me. I've never encountered this phenomenon before, in real life or on-line

There were more laughs in my list than in any of the humourless po-faced cool-kid look-at-me shit y'all are lapping up. Julie Brown and Mojo Nixon are comedy rekkids ffs.

And there was no slit-your-wrists funk or inane choogling.

Hope so. Otherwise who will tell us what's real soul music and what isn't?
