Results Of The The Second Annual Pop (All Love) Canadian Music Bloggers Year-End Poll Thingy
If this actually mattered, we'd all be clamouring for a recount, alleging voter fraud and appealing these results to the Supreme Court. It was that close. So thank God that this is almost completely meaningless.

Last year, it was something of a blowout. This year, thanks to an adjusted points system and a complete lack of consensus among the electorate, a mere point separated first from second (and, for the record, my vote had nothing to do with it - neither made my ballot).

So here you go. Enjoy. Overall point totals are listed. First place votes are in these () things. Alas, despite several reviews of the ballots, Theory of a Deadman were, once again, completely shut out.
