Vote For The Albums Everyone Can Love, For June 27
Originally published on Wed June 27, 2012 4:20 pm
We're a few weeks and a few polls into our summer search for the albums everyone can love, and so far the results have challenged some of our long-held assumptions. Most of you have never heard Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova's soundtrack to the film Once (we thought it was wildly popular). Only half of you love Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (one of the greatest albums ever) and half of you have never even heard Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over The Sea, though most of you who have heard it love it. Maybe not as surprising, The Beatles are trouncing everyone else, with Abbey Road inching out The White Album in the popularity contest.
So here's a new batch of albums to consider. All you have to do is tell us whether or not you love it (or haven't really heard). By the end of the summer we hope to have a top ten list of albums we can all (mostly) agree on.
As always, tell us in the comments section the albums you think we should include in future polls.
If you haven't already, take our previous surveys.
