Survey results – 2011


Thanks to everyone who took part in the AHFoW survey, with 162 responses this was the largest turnout the survey has ever had (I reluctantly have to accept that Facebook means that A Head Full of Wishes is reaching more people than ever before). Thanks also for all the nice things said in the comments… I do all of this for my own sad satisfaction but that doesn’t mean I don’t get a buzz out of it all!

  1. Thanks, as always, Andy. I’m kind of proud to be the only person to vote for Within These Walls as best D&N album… at least, I think it was me…
