Classic Rock Bottom

We have arrived at a final ballot.  All the nominations have been received, the numbers tabulated, and the results posted below.  The directions are simple.  Pick one.  Most categories have three choices, but some may have only two.  All categories from the nomination ballot that did not have at least two common nominees have been deposited in file thirteen.

Please follow directions and only pick one.  These are all "Reader's Choice" categories, so they may not necessarily line up perfectly with the CRB Top 10 Albums of 2017 list.  Who cares, right?  We're just having fun.  Feel free to use the copy/paste method to make your choices.  All votes that are sent to me through a private message on this site or on the Facebook CRB page will be counted.  You can post your choices on the thread if you want, but the suspense holds up better with private messages.  The voting will remain open until December 26th at midnight, Eastern.  I'd like to get the final results posted before the year is finished!  Thanks to everyone that chooses to participate.  Have a Merry Christmas and a Classic Rockin' New Year in 2018!

This may be the first year since I've joined CRB that I've actually heard just about every album listed here. All of my votes are based on the albums I heard.

Kind of surprised the Kansas album didn't make the cut for prog album....if it had, that would have been my choice.

Welcome to the year 2017.

The Prelude Implicit was released in 2016 and was my #2 album of the year and my #1 prog album.  But since they just release a live rendition of Leftoverture this year I didn't consider that in any rankings mostly because I didn't buy it...

Surprised you didn't pick up Steve Walsh's new one.

I've been listening to it on Amazon Music...  I like it enough but it seems be an import, so price will have tome down, which it looks it's starting to do....

Less than three hours left to get your votes in...
