This will be the last in our summer-long series of polls in search of the albums everyone can love. We've featured a few hundred records since we started back in May, and have found a lot of surprises. Just in last week's poll alone, we found that 70 percent of you haven't heard or don't like Beach House's Bloom, even though it was voted No. 3 overall in our midyear listener poll for the best records of 2012 (so far). We also learned that only 30 percent of voters love The Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs, and only 15 percent love Fugazi's The Argument. If you haven't heard that one, you'll want to check it out.
Here's the last batch of records to consider in this series. Just tell us whether you love it, don't love it or haven't really heard it.
Look for the overall results of all this voting in the coming weeks.
