Re: Rock Zone Best albums of 2009

Honorio, are you adding these to the EOY spreadsheet? When you do, don't forget the Soundi (Finland) list, which was the last one posted here a few weeks back.

Re: Rock Zone Best albums of 2009

yeah I noticed some of the last few EOY's that have been posted haven't been added. I guess more attention is being given to the EOD list but I really liked 09 so I hope these EOY's bring many of the great albums of 09 into the top 200 of the 00s.

Re: Rock Zone Best albums of 2009

Nope, sorry I'm not sure of how to do this in fact.

Aaarrrggghhh!!! I can't believe I did this - Otisredding is the one who worked on the EOY spreadsheet, not you. Sorry!

Where's Otis been, anyway? If he's not around, I suppose I could add the Soundi and RockZone lists and update the EOY list.

Re: Rock Zone Best albums of 2009

I will be grateful for the job, whoever does it.

And yeah, Otis I miss you!

Done and sent.

Re: Rock Zone Best albums of 2009

Many many thanks Harold. And sorry for not trying to do it myself, it's probably easy. I'll do it next time...
