temples were on my list, i like 'em well enough, but i'm honestly surprised they cracked the top 5.....
I think you answered your own question, pretty much. They ranked that high by virtue of being on people's lists regardless of placement. A lot of albums only appeared on one list (I think only two on my list were mentioned on anybody else's), so they had no chance.
Thanks, Virgil, for compiling this - it was nice to see an End of Year thread again
Maybe next year we could throw the voting out to the WOXY Facebook group as well and get a few more participants.
