    Yes, I can't help myself :)

    It will be interesting to see though if the average M-solo forum member has better taste than, say, the average Q or NME reader.
    In other words, will Muse and Arctic Monkeys be 2 and 3 in our end-of year-list or not?

    BTW, Top 10's that aren't numbered will get 5 points for each album...
