Henrik, how come there haven't been any CMJ lists added since 2001? Is it simply that they never get posted here?

After the first 2 lists in 2000 and 2001 they, somehow, skipped Year End lists until 2011 when they did individual lists, but they returned to TOP 30 staff compiled lists in 2012 and 2013.
I will post them tomorrow.
