We’re kicking it old school. And we clearly didn’t go to B-school.This useful/useless excel spreadsheet lists the results from a reader poll we conducted through this blog, the series twitter and facebook. The question was simply: What albums are missing from the 33 1/3 series? We received hundreds of replies. These are all of the albums that were suggested more than once.

What can we learn from this? That someone should submit a proposal on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. It was suggested 6 times. Also: The Cure, Sparks, Lauren Hill.  album suggestions

    The YHF story has already been told in countless magazine profiles, a book (Learning How To Die by Greg Kot) and a film (I Am Trying To Break Your Heart)

    Had I known about this sooner I would have suggested Heart of the Congos.
