Basically, the idea is that I use these smaller rankings to make a larger ranking of the most acclaimed albums on AM. That was my goal with the Rate the Album, but that ended up not being what I desired, and I feel like comparing albums is a better system.

I'm sure I'm already contradicting myself from they way I voted last week!
The songs list in particular would vary day-to-day depending on how I'm feeling. I like them all - but today I'm obviously in a Respect mood, rather than an Anarchy one...

Here are the albums to rank:
16 | David Bowie | The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
13 | The Beatles | The Beatles [White Album]
20 | The Beatles | Abbey Road
01 | The Beach Boys | Pet Sounds
12 | Sex Pistols | Never Mind the Bollocks - Here's the Sex Pistols
09 | The Rolling Stones | Exile on Main St.
03 | Nirvana | Nevermind
10 | Bob Dylan | Blonde on Blonde
11 | Bob Dylan | Highway 61 Revisited
14 | The Jimi Hendrix Experience | Are You Experienced?

And the Songs:
11 | Aretha Franklin | Respect
02 | Nirvana | Smells Like Teen Spirit
12 | Joy Division | Love Will Tear Us Apart
19 | The Clash | London Calling
18 | Michael Jackson | Billie Jean
04 | The Beach Boys | Good Vibrations
14 | The Rolling Stones | Sympathy for the Devil
07 | The Ronettes | Be My Baby
17 | Elvis Presley | Heartbreak Hotel
15 | Sex Pistols | Anarchy in the U.K.

Randomly, with the 11-20 albums and songs being weighted higher and more likely to be chosen.
