Due to Dirty Linen’s publication schedule, it is nearly impossible to publish reviews of the winter holiday releases during the same year they are released. Do you prefer to have the holiday music lumped together into one column, published in the issue closest to the holiday season (even if it’s a year later), or would you prefer to see them scattered throughout the year, even if it means reading holiday reviews in May?

63%  Combine all reviews in the November/December issue only.

25%  Review them individually throughout the year.

12%  Don’t care.

The poll ran from September 14, 2009 through November 17, 2009.
