  1. Again I love the ingenuity of this list! It acts as a gauge as to what albums have have the most appeal. I’m beginning to think I’m the only one who didn’t get on the Villagers bandwagon when I had the chance. Time for me to check out the album again and remind myself I am happier on the platform!

  3. This list is a great idea, really interesting to see how many mentions acts are getting across the blogs, as peter said it’s a great gauge. Must have been a lot of work though! well done

  4. Thanks Aoife, glad you like it. I love finding and reading lists, so updating this post is as much fun as it is work!

  5. No idea how you got all this together, but fair play.

  6. Thanks Fia, you must be pleased to see yourself make a couple of lists!
