Re: Biggest Fan - August 2019

218. Taana Gardner - Heartbeat - 7 Looking back, this did make my top 100 in the 1981 poll. A weakness of how I make my lists for those is that I put in everything, so a lot can be forgotten, like this track. I might rank it lower now. It's got a lot I like, but it is indeed too long and slow. I was...

216. Green Day – In the End - 5
I guess it's part of the style but I just really disliked how the track was mixed. I liked the parts, just not how it was put together.
217. Madness – The Liberty of Norton Folgate - 8
Just fantastic, anything I could say has been said above already.
