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)
