Well thank you to all for having taken the time to listen to this album - it's no easy feat and I appreciate the effort. I will pay even more attention to Nightime Story as it seems to have struck a chord here.

You already have a song in the 6001-8000 range (Youth Against Fascism), so you need to change your vote.
