Thanks for taking the time to not only count the votes but go to great lengths to come up with the spreadsheets and list the other data.

It's interesting to see the results quantified. Based on my sense of what the boards thought at the time of the release of these albums, I think the results match up really close to the general taste of everyone.

It's not too surprising that a lot of these albums were released at the beginning of the decade. Not only was that a great time for music, but our tastes as a community also seem more in line with the boom-bap sound that grew less popular over time.

The only shocking album is seeing Deltron 3030. It's a good album, but I didn't think it was so well-regarded. And it's odd that Phrenology isn't here. I'm biased because I voted it #1, but I sensed it was received well at the time and thought it would rank high on the final list.
