HOW THEY VOTED
Voters were asked to choose their 30 favorite Texas albums recorded and released between 1982 and 2012, to rank them in descending order and to be as clinical (or not) as they wanted to be about how they defined "favorite." We defined "Texas album" as a full-length original album released by an artist born in Texas (or a band formed in Texas), someone who got here as soon as he or she could, or a native who has since moved away but qualifies under the "once a Texan, always a Texan" rule. The results were entered into a Google spreadsheet and calculated with the invaluable assistance of Houston Press Web Editor Brittanie Shey. Not all voters listed 30 albums, but each score was calculated using 30 points as the top value.

Great article, no matter the situation SPM is a great Artist and his Free SPM movement is bigger then all the "intelligent" individuals who are always telling other people how to be,'and where to go. I define Ignorance by assuming ones opionion is fact.
The fact that ArcAngels (formed after your #1 passed by Sexton and Bramhall) didn't even make the top 30 shows that you kids don't have a clue what you're talking about.
Simply pathetic that so many would forget such an obvious omission, and it's also very telling that SRV is simply a pity vote by voters who didn't actually listen back in the day.
It's No. 42, impressive considering most people have probably never heard of Zeitgeist or the Reivers.
