On an unrelated note, I wonder how many votes Tool will get here on AM? It made 5 lists in the last 2001 poll, ranking #33. But then my album of 2001 did even worse. One album has made a big leap up the rankings for 2000 and will be one of the 50 wildcard entries in the decade poll so you never know.
