Do albums from new artists gain more acclaim over time?

Or are albums from new artists actually getting worse? In terms of their AM rankings, I mean. I have an MP3 collection, 250 albums strong, running from 1955-2014, representing 60 years worth of western pop music. The catch? Each artist can only be included once. So only one Beatles album, one Radioh...

Re: Album Club Discussion #9: Daft Punk's Discovery

On my MP3 player, I've rearranged the track listing a bit to have "Night Vision" in between "High Life" and "Something About Us". This way, the album is more clearly divided into the fast side and the slow side.

Re: When will the 2017 update come?

When the update does come out, can you also put it into Excel format, like with the unofficial 2016 update? That makes manipulating the data much easier.

Second opinions to AM?

I've been using this site for a while now, not as long as some others here, but still. It's been a godsend when it comes to creating my own personal music collection project: carefully choosing the single best albums by 500 different primary artists between 1953 and 2013 (exactly 6 decades). By now,...

Best album by each artist?

http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/Current/1890-19arta.htm I'm trying to take each of these 1000 entities and record each of their single best albums according to AM as part of a larger project of mine. Is there any way I can do this with some Excel trick or something without having to click all 1000 ent...

Artists ranked together that should be seperate?

It bothers me that there are several individual artistic entities joined together for the sake of ranking purposes. For example, I don't think it's a stretch to consider Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company as seperate entities. Same thing with Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Inventio...

Some AM questions for a newbie...

1. I was told once on this forum that there were 1445 artists on AM with at least one ranked album; how would someone go about finding this out? 2. Is there a way to see the top artists ranked by album beyond 1000? 3. Can you think of any artists on the best-by-album list that are named together but...

3000 ranked albums, how many artists between them?

In other words: how many artists are there on AM that have at least one ranked album?

If anyone could actually answer this without going through every single artist one-by-one, I'd be very impressed...

The difference between these two lists?

Sorry, noob post, but: http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/061024/1948-09art.htm http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/Current/1890-19art.htm Can someone explain the difference between these two pages? I'm guessing the second one is more up to date? Are there any artists that are on one page but not on the other?...
