It's weird, but the tracks are almost in the right order already. Until track 6 I didn't have to change anything.

Most of the tracks are a tribute to one musician or genre, but Bird Calls is supposed to sound like birds, not like Charlie Parker.
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

The biggest shock of Rank the Tracks for me so far is that only a few people ranked Kendrick last week, since I thought that album was a forum favorite. (Maybe it was because everyone was interested in the album poll results and there will be more votes for it in the weeks to come.)

02 | Goodbye Pork Pie Hat*
07 | Fables of Faubus*
04 | Self-Portrait in Three Colors
03 | Boogie Stop Shuffle
08 | Pussy Cat Dues
01 | Better Git It in Your Soul
06 | Bird Calls
05 | Open Letter to Duke
09 | Jelly Roll

Personal favorites *
Overall album rating: 7.39 (Very good)

That sound, Honorio, is the biggest sigh of relief from you realising I'll no longer have an effect on any of the rankings and you no longer having to wonder why I can't just vote with the forum consensus for a change!

But thank you very much for running this- from one Clash fan to another, it's an honour to join the 100 Club, I enjoyed (re-)visiting these albums so much that I'm thinking of ranking them in the RTT open thread if that'll be alright? No problem if not, thanks again either way :-)

No problem at all with all these changes, mileswide! These rankings were made to change them. It's true that you changed the rankings a lot (especially the #1s of every album) but that's fantastic. If we set in stone the rankings this game has no sense at all…
And of course you can post on the RTT results thread, as you already did. And thanks again!
