I would submit a guess, but I don't want to jinx my favorite album, which is still in the running.

After 10:

Rob's day gets only marginally better as his prediction of Blood on the Tracks at 4th sets him way far back at 285. Also Sticky Fingers at 19th, but it hasn't yet shown in the poll...

Sweepstakes Ron had a VERY solid 15-11, and is now on 183.

Henrik is solid as ever and moves on to 112.

Henry is on 151 - has picking up 36 points for Rumours irreparably hurt his chances?

Romain picked up a horrible 81 points for Darkness on the Edge of Town, but has otherwise been pretty solid. 214.

Otisredding had an AMAZING 11-15, picking up only 20 points for that 5. He's now on 81. But can he keep it up?

Bonnielaurel is in the fight too, with 118.

Sticky Fingers is the pick that will keep me from making any progress. I was not as careful as I should be taking into account the strength of 1971, where the 4th highest from our 1971 poll is in our top 8 for the decade poll.

Rob picked up a hefty 100 points for Innervisions, and Sticky Fingers is yet to go...437 points at the moment.

Sweepstakes Ron is on 248, but he too had Sticky Fingers at 17th

Henrik is on a solid 162

Henry is on 195, but stand to lose a LOT with Sticky Fingers

Romain is on 296, so surely out of the race now.

Stevie Wonder has ruined Otisredding! Picking up 144 points for SITKOL and 25 more for Innervisions, he's now languishing at 272...

Bonnielaurel is on 258.

With 5 more to go, can anyone catch up with Henrik?

HENRIK! On top of knowing most about what the critics think, it turns out he also knows most about what we think each other thinks. A cool calm and collected 212 points.
