Yes, but the soundtrack was never made available in any for until 1994, when the film finally started to become a cult favorite. I doubted a little if I should include it here, but since the album is qualified as 1994 on both AM as well as RYM I put it here.

ALBUMS results.
1994 gets it’s quota of albums through to the decade poll, probably plus an extra. Green Day and Weezer have performed much better than last time in both Album and Song polls. Hole are the biggest loser.

30 voters voted for 123 different albums.

Automatic qualifiers for the decade poll:-

Rank | Points | # Voters | Rank in last 1994 poll (2012) | AM 1994 Rank | Artist | Album

1 | 525 | 24 | 1 | 2 | Portishead | Dummy
2 | 420 | 17 | 2 | 1 | Jeff Buckley | Grace

The top 3 are all in my top 20 all time, and I’ve kept switching orders between them… so in the end, I’ll go with the order that seems more likely to help all 3 get to the final round.

1) Pavement - Fillmore Jive
2) Jeff Buckley - Grace
3) Portishead - Roads
