FAR charts are compiled from reports sent in by actual DJs with freeform (i.e. no playlists) radio shows on public, college and community stations round the country (and world).  Each of them lists the four albums they took most pleasure in playing, one of which can be their Album of the Month (designated by a * and their initials). 

NOTE: starting this month, reporters' top three picks will be indicated. Album of the Month is still the reporter's initials with an asterisk, #2 is just the initials, #3 the initials in lower case.
