Ta-da!!! The first review top 50
Hope you all had a good Christmas/whatever the local customer is for you. It has been sort of a self imposed downtime here at ATT Towers, got some really good albums to review over the next week or so, and was actually enjoying spending time with the family and such thing. However, time to get back in the saddle. To start with I will put up the first Top 50 reviews based on the score they received. If you have not read the original review you will be able to find it on the blog (Or by clicking the on the link - read them!!!!!). Keep the suggestions coming in, I have a few to be put up over the next few day and would like some more. I would also like to thank Chris for his Waheela review and their will soon be another guest reviewer on here as well. No, feed me music!!! - Eddie
P.S. - As the Batman symbol marks do not actually count in a way, they will drift to the bottom; however, this does not mean they are crap, just unmarkable).
