Amazon has announced the results of their "Best of the Millennium" poll (a year early, of course). The winners are: Star Wars for Best Video, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band for Best Album, and Lord of the Rings for Best Book. The results show that the teeming masses haven't totally taken over the Web...the "geek" vote is in evidence with the selections of Tolkien, Star Wars, Pink Floyd, and The Matrix. The teen chick vote is also quite strong, with the selection of a Backstreet Boys album as the 3rd best album of the millennium.
