So this is not a score I throw around lightly, it's been 3 years since I've last given this out and this is only the 19th record I've given this score to, but when you have a record that has *those* moments on every track that makes you roll your eyes with pleasure and praise a God of some kind then I think it deserves it.

I noticed a four way tie for first place when looking over your rankings between:

Led Zeppelin 4

if you could rank those 4 in order for me by this time next week that would be greatly appreciated! thanks! :)

Hey I just wanted to let you know that my list aggregating AOTY's favorite albums of the year 1970 is finally live, and that you are included in it!

This was a very big project that would not have been able to be completed without your ratings and I hope to continue this series with future installments!

If you would be so kind as to check the list out and even possibly give me any feedback at all it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
