Re: Artist of the Month - March '21 - Miles Davis, Results!

I'm impressed with everyone. I've heard around ten albums, which is still puny, and I wasn't sure how a comprehensive Miles Davis poll would work out. But you can't underestimate the forum.

Top 100 lists are like the building blocks of the main site. I don't see how 100 would be just too few.

On the flip side, I put a hell of a lot of time into my old top 1,000 list, so I wouldn't really call it imprecise (though the last 50-100 could be changed out fairly easily, in retrospect).
