And because graphs are fun and data represented visually is so much more enjoyable, we’ve created a scoring system for the staff’s top ten lists, above, and then turned it into a sweet, sweet graph. This isn’t HEAVY’s top ten as the data pool was too small to create an accurate representation of HEAVY’s musical preferences (we have a heap of staff and couldn’t include all of their top ten lists here), but hopefully it’s something that you’ll at least find visually stimulating because graphs are awesome!
