Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- RESULTS

I love or at least appreciate most of the albums at this point, but Morning Glory and Ten stick out to me as albums that belong at least 100 places back. Funny, those are easily my two favorites that dropped yesterday. (...) Both Morning Glory and Ten are very consistent and are also filled with al...

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- RESULTS

Thanks for the Tom Waits suggestions. [...] my appreciation for the lyrics, compositions and performances are starting to help me get there despite the less than enjoyable vocals. You should try what antonius suggested: one of Tom's first two albums ("Closing Time" is your best bet). Try ...

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- RESULTS

I also imagine RYM is more skewed towards males (in terms of population) than the critics are, which could influence the results. That's certainly possible, although I'm not certain that the population of critics has almost 3x as much women as the population of RYMers. But if that is correct, it wo...

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- RESULTS

I'm really pleased to see Exile in Guyville on the list. A top 10 album for me and a fairly misunderstood album as far as critically acclaimed albums go. RYM don't even place it in their top 3000 which is insane... :) I thought this was very interesting and I had a hunch that RYM might not like fem...

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- RESULTS

The disparity between the critical and mass perception of Pink Floyd's Animals is interesting. It's #26 on RYM and has consistently fared well on AMF polls, but sits at #1659 in the last official update. It may be that the length of the songs (most of the album is comprised of three songs over ten ...

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- RESULTS

Some small errors: "Every Picture Tells a Story" lacks an image. "Something/Anything" and "Elvis Presley"'s fans are the same. But I trust notbrianeno will fix that soon, as he has done previously. Keep going, I'm glued to my seat!

And "In A Bar, Under The Sea" almost made my top 20, so it should also see a decent jump. But I guess this band will have to rely pretty heavily on AM users from Continental Europe to do well.

There are actually excellent lyrics in Fado. There's a tradition of poets writing lyrics for Fado songs, so it's not just "she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah". Average Fado lyrics are way better artistically than average rock lyrics. But I don't care much for lyrics in music. I listen to Dyla...
