July 2005 Top 10

An excellent variety comprises the results of The Phantom Tollbooth's compiled votes for the July 2005 Top 10 survey. There's always a delightful surprise or two, and this month's is that a lot of folks are listening to A Liturgy, A Legacy, and a Ragamuffin Band from Rich Mullins. The other surprise is a full roster of runners-up that are all just one extra vote or two away from placing within the Top 10. New titles in this month's survey are top vote-getter Sufjan Stevens' Illinois, On the Threshold of Eternity by Ajalon, Coldplay's X & Y, and Glass Hammer's The Inconsolable Secret. Bill Mallonee returns with Friendly Fire and runners-up with Hit and Run. Returnees are SF59 (slipping just one notch from the top slot from last month), U2, Mae, and Over the Rhine. Remember that every vote counts; Radiohead's OK Computer just barely missed the runners-up (including Lost Dogs, Bruce Cockburn, John Davis, and Dream Theater), so remember to log your listening diary for the August 2005 Top 10 survey, and vote at Here are the results of the July 2005 Top 10 survey:
