Bob Boilen and I were out in Portland and Seattle last week on our summer listening party tour, so we didn't post a new poll of albums everyone can love. Fear not: To make up for the week off, this week we've got 40 albums for you. In the coming weeks we'll let you know which records have been doing the best and have some sort of runoff between the highest vote-getters to come up with a top ten we all can agree on (well, most of us, anyway).

Here's this week's double-size poll. Just tell us whether you love, don't love or haven't really heard each album.

Previous surveys in this series.

In our most recent survey, we discovered once again that many of you haven't heard some fantastic records, such as the self-titled album by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Cat Power's Covers Record, or Rufus Wainwright's Poses. So if nothing else, this is a great chance to discover some amazing music that hasn't made it on your radar before.

And as always, in the comments section below, tell us which albums you'd like to see in future polls.
