Re: AMF Best Albums of All-Time 2020 LIST THREAD

Alright, just about 10 more days for this. If anyone needs an extension, let me know. I’m (surprisingly) all caught up on the tabulation so far, so hopefully the rollout will be able to start on October 15th, with 50 a day if everything goes as planned.
