Subject: Launch of Top 20 Albums Poll 2008

Dear all,
It's possibly a bit sad but I quite enjoy doing it and so do some of you...
I am launching my Top 20 Albums Poll 2008 and am writing to you as you've voted in a previous poll.    
If you would like to vote,  please place your Top 20 choices in rank order if possible but if you can't decide the order that's fine as well (but please let me know this is the case).
Please do not include Greatest Hits type albums by a single artist / group although it is fine to include live albums, various artists compilations, b-side compilations and film soundtracks.
I will not publish or disclose your individual choices to any third party for reasons of confidentiality.  However, if you would like your Top 20 to be recorded on my website ( ), please let me know when you submit your list.
Please feel free to forward this e-mail on to any friends or colleagues who may also be interested in voting.
Please let me know if you would like to see your votes from last time before voting for this year.  Please also let me know if you no longer wish your votes to be included in the poll - I will take them off my statistics and not contact you again about the poll).
The closing date for votes is 31st December 2008 - I will get back to you with the overall results in early 2009.
Finally, my top 20 for 2008 are below.  I look forward to hearing from you with your choices.
