Re: Moderately Acclaimed Albums 11 (2020) - The Draw!

Is there any reason why Super Ape is in the 4th quadrant despite being ranked as high as #1077? Yes, the nominator submitted the ranking as "Unranked", likely checking under "Upsetters" as opposed to "Lee Perry". An oversight, but one I'm afraid we'll have to live with. You got it.

And Schüttelbirne's right, Discogs, Allmusic & Wikipedia all have Marion as 2019. It might be worth requiring nominators to list the release year to avoid a repeat. I had missed this, but don't think it's crucial that everyone lists the release years (I have a hard enough time getting people to lis...

A minor point maybe, but worth giving some credit to Cale's intermedi...
