Re: Some graphs about music critics vs sales

log(log(10 + n)) - log(log(10 + rank))

Same as is used on this site for critic ranking

Re: Some graphs about music critics vs sales

The title is a little inaccurate. I made some graphs about music critics opinion over time, and bunch of table comparing the opinion of music critics to that of the public, like this:

Data files

Are the rankings available as excel or .csv files?

I'm thinking of the main rankings, top songs / artists / albums. I'm interested in doing some analysis with it.

Re: When did rock die?

It would be fun to compare it with the popular taste in music, eg the best selling albums in each year. Does anyone know if it's possible to get that data, and connect it to genre information?

Re: When did rock die?

Here is the same figure, but with absolute acclaim instead of acclaim proportional to the other genres in that year So the sum of the genres will be higher around 1970, for instance.

Re: When did rock die?

Now I tried to compare the top 8 parent genres, and how they have developed.

In this view BleuPanda is indeed right: Rock is still the largest single genre. Althought it's not the juggernaut it was previously. I find it interesting how R&B had a comeback.

Still, interesting stuff Jonatan!
Yes, I should have. Now it is, the second figure is the right one.

Re: When did rock die?

1995 was a pretty big banner year for rock (Oasis, Alanis Morissette, Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters), so it's something that it still went downhill. Actually, annoyingly, Oasis doesn't have Rock as one of it's first parent genres. It does have 'Alternative Rock' though. (Usually bands who have Al...

Re: When did rock die?

This is cool! I would love to see a data visualization that shows the relative share of each year's acclaimed music across the genre categories. Like for example, if 1994 is 50% rock, the other 50% is split up between which other genres? I would not have guessed the early 60s would be totally devoi...

When did rock die?

Rock still exists of course, but I think it is much less present at the top of the charts than it used to be. When did this happen? I analyzed a list of the top 6000 albums that Henrik sent me, counting albums as rock if one of the first two parent genres was a rock genre. Each album was weighed usi...

Re: Suggest genre changes here

Thank you! Which formula do you use to rank albums of different rank. I recall at some point reading something like
log(log(4 + 4000)) - log(log(4 + rank))

Re: Suggest genre changes here

I have a technical question about how to download the genres into an excel file. I am interested in (1) the parent genres of the top 3000 albums. I can access those by clicking on each album, and writing them down. But perhaps there is an easier way? And (2) genres and parent genres for the top song...

Re: Albums of 2014

Hey guys I've been listening to many of the albums you talk about in this thread. Unfortunately I'm rather specific in my tastes, I like rock music. For instance, Sun Kil Moon is too quiet for me, and most of the other things are too electronic. I noticed one album that I liked, Wooden Shjips. Anywa...
