I wouldn't call it useless. I think it was rather interesting info and cool to see how my votes factored in. \'arry \'eadbanger

Thanks for the stats. Got Point of Entry listed instead of British Steel (for "Rapid Fire" & "The Rage").

I was definitely in the majority for a lot of those votes.

I really like your polls. It's nice to cover one band at a time. With so many polls going on now, it's tough for me to keep up when I'm not familiar with all the albums (i.e. Twisted Sister, Fates Warning, Queensryche).

Yeah it was cool for me cause I finally got to listen to about 6 or 7 Priest albums either for the first time altogether or completely for the first time.

I am down for any polls about Priest; and especially when they come from one of my fave people on the board.

I like the stat summary concept. 

Instead of a bunch of standalone polls it's cool to see them all wrapped up with a tidy bow.

Great work and I had a fun time choosing the Priest material that I was familiar with.

I find it cool that the album and song that got the most attention is generally regarded as their weakest effort. Great work, James.

My hats off to you, J-man. Trying to figure out if I want to tally results similarly after the Maiden polls run up. Seems like a good amount of work...

Nice job James! As I told you before I didn't get involved in the priest polls cause I don't have much of their material but it's awesome you went through all this trouble tallying it all up.

I spent more time typing up the results than compiling the data.

The stats for the Priest polls were not as cohesive as my stats from the Saxon polls that ended about a year ago.

It was cool that Detuned began the Maiden polls.(you continuing) "Somewhere In Time" was the last Maiden album I ever heard in it's entirety. So now there is a reason to listen to the rest headbanger Even checking out the FW stuff I ignored due to whatever reason.

Yeah, the polls have certainly increased the activity around here. That's definitely a good thing. Smile
