    CW picks the top 20 greatest albums

    It's back. I can't be entirely certain as to whether the poll has been run yet, as I was away for so long, but I have the list of nominations here and I'll post it up to lay it down all official and stuff.

    The voting will be done as follows:

    The list will be put up for download, in excel and txt format.
    Those wishing to participate in the survey may download the list of nominations, add votes and email the results to countmeplease@hotmail.com
    Voting should be done according to the specifications:
    1. Rate albums out of 20, with 20 being perfect and a minimum of 1.
    2. Don't rate albums you have not heard in entirety! Be fair please.
    3. Try to be open-minded and don't bash any particular genre.

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Thats a bit hard.. a majority of CW arent appreciative of the rap/hip hop genre.. and almost all havent heard the classic albums myself and a few others mentioned.. let alone to understand why the album was important in that era for that artist and the history behind it and around that time period, and how it set the base for what hip hop and rap is today and the huge popularity etc..

    That's why I said don't rate albums you haven't heard in entirety. Those who are completely against rap/hip hop are unlikely to have endured any "classic" album.

    I am shocked and appalled that albums such as ABBA get a mention, whilst AC/DC's Back in Black isn't there.

    Yes, but don't feel the need to separate it. Spam mail isn't a problem, as it's just a temporary email address.

    They were made on the basis of a thread being open for several weeks for people to nominate albums. It's CW chooses the greatest albums. If you can think of a fairer way for CW to chose it, be my guest. Everyone had a lot of opportunity to nominate.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
