Thanks to Alan for introducing a HOTT NEW FEATURE to Popular. You can now give a mark out of 10 to each individual track*, thus CROWDSOURCING the overall opinion of the Popular massive and making the whole thing more interactive etc etc.

I think this is fab! You have to be logged in to do it though. What better reason to register? (We won’t give your email to The Man, or do anything with it at all in fact.)

*Currently this is only enabled for the last n tracks, where n is a number that Alan knows and I don’t. But if it doesn’t screw up our back-end we’ll extend this to all of ’em.
