Re: Moderately Acclaimed Albums 4 - Quarterfinals!

1. Bob Dylan - The Times They Are A-Changin' vs. Miles Davis - A Tribute To Jack Johnson

This is a tie for me. Both get 0,5 votes!!!

2. Donovan - Sunshine Superman vs. Nico - Desertshore

3. Eels - Electro-Shock Blues vs. Nina Simone - Wild Is The Wind
