You might want to checkout what the DPRP Team voted for. Below you'll find our personal Top 10s and votes for best song, artwork, newcomer, concert and biggest disappointment. We've chosen to do a Top 10 this year since there were so many good albums in 2000. Don't worry, as with any other participant in the poll, only the Top 5s count for the results of the poll.
