I'll just assume Tom Verlaine and Nick Cave are tied and enter them both as 11.5

Yes, but isn't it a top 10 and they are tied with "Big Chill" at number 10, so that all 3 albums should get 11?

As for Julian Cope, I think it would be ok to give both albums a 1.

Thank you, Henrik! I've gotten it done.

For the Schlager list, I assigned the missing positions to blank entries. Do with this as you will.

Thanks Sweepstakes Ron! I think it's all great, but of the individual lists I can only see the Schlager column on my mobile.

(Also, the tabs are named 1983, not that it bothers me.)

Andre and Sweepstakes Ron, if you continue with other years, you should probably agree on what years you're taking.

Yes, that makes sense.

Just for everybody's information:
Sweepstakes Ron sent me a private message, he will do the remainder of the 80's. That's great.
And I just answered, suggesting to continue with the 1990 and so forth. Hope all are fine with that.

Hi Sweepstakes Ron,

at your request I have reviewed your list and made 3 changes (see attached Excel file):
1) added New Model Army - Vengeance from the OOR list
2) added The Rockerilla list from Italy (and as suggested by Henrik, both Julian Cope's albums have value 1)
3) changed the format to the same as the other uploaded lists (and added hyperlinks to the lists)

Andre
