No complaints about the first 5, and it's nice to see Berwald, Nielsen and Szymanowski making the top 10.
But Gorecki's emo-porn 3rd, omnipresent in these games, is a piece that I don't just dislike, it repulses me on a physical level.
No repulsion from my end. Actually, I would have liked to see the Gorecki take top honors.
