2001 Pazz & Jop critical alignment ratings
368b · 14 February 02
Here are the voters in the 2001 Village Voice Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll, ranked according to the average number of other voters who voted for each of their album picks. (Last year I did singles and combined ratings, as well, but singles voting is too scattered to produce particularly interesting numbers.) If anyone had voted for the exact ten album winners, their rating would have been 105.8. Higher ratings are possible for partial ballots, although for the purposes of these ratings I disqualified anybody who cast fewer than five votes. The minimum rating, of course, for an entirely unique ballot, is 0. I ranked a little higher this year than last, but I still come in fairly far down. Special notices should go to Roger Catlin, the only voter to rank in the top ten both this year and last, and to George Smith and Ken Roseland, who share the lowest cumulative 2000/2001 rating of 0.2.
