To decide the forum's favourite album,the top 13 albums from the 60s,70s,80s and 90s polls and the top 12 from the 2000/13 poll are now competing against each other.

I have made a completely random draw. The first round will be in two halves,so 16 ties to vote on now and 16 in a few days. Please highlight your chosen winner of each tie in bold or if you don't know how to do this,just type the winners out.

You don't have to vote on each tie. I know that if you haven't heard either album,you might not want to vote for either.

If any of these ties result in draws,the winner will be the one that scored the most points in its decade poll.

A dramatic end to the Parallel Lines/Doolittle match with two late votes for the Blondie album in the last half hour. I thought London Calling might win the tournament but the Stone Roses were too strong.
