I believe I may echo the sentiments of several of us in suggesting this discussion be moved to another thread (or forum). This has become tiresome. It has indeed. Let's move on. Maybe I shouldn't say this, but thankfully Honorio has a "clean copy" of this topic in another part of the forum.

Re: Should Joy Division and New Order's "Substance" albums really be considered compilations?

The general rule I have used is that the majority of songs have to be released a) within the last few years and b) after the artist’s last album. All the songs before ”Closer” and ”Brotherhood” make these albums ineligible for AM.
