Who’s in the Top 20?
The results were quite interesting I think. With some of the artists that appeared in the list, I still have to find the Ska element. For example, Liran’ Roll or those on the Boston Drops The Gloves-compilation.
Who’s NOT in the Top 20?
On the other hand some of the bigger names of today’s Ska music are missing, such as The Slackers, or The Aggrolites. And yet, The Toasters appear on this list with three albums.
Anyway, have a look for yourself.
