    'Democracy is the right of the village idiot to have his say", Lenin apparently said.

    On a completely unrelated note, the CLUAS writers (including self) have voted on the best albums of 2010 and the CLUAS gaffer (more of a Stalin man) has just returned the results: www.cluas.com/poll/2010/best-albums-writers.asp

    All reactions, fuming and cheering below. For my part:

    Yay - Villagers didn't top the poll: a seriously overrated album - definitely not best Irish album of the year.
    Nay - No sign of Owen Pallett ('Heartland' released way back in January 2010) or Darwin Deez (pure pop pleasure). And the Arcade Fire album was fairly boring.

    What always intrigues me with the results of the annual writers poll is not the predictable releases you'll see in the top 5 but the stuff that I never expected (or even heard of). Stuff like Deadmau5, Tame Impala or Olof Arnalds (aside: Olofgot my one of my votes and I was delighted someone else also voted for her album, and hence lifted it - very deservedly IMHO - into the final list).

    HERESY! I'm off to organise some burning torches and pitchforks.
