War of the Rock Critics Polls

Upstart music blog Idolator is taking on the venerable Pazz and Jop Poll in a battle of the rock critics polls according to Jockeying for top music poll position. It seems that not everyone is thrilled with the changes that new ownership has brought to the Village Voice and so Idolator has decided to compile their own critics poll as a snubb of the historic Pazz and Jop Poll that has dominated until now. Of course a lot of the same critics are participating in both but it will be interesting to compare them to see what they have in common and where they differ.
