Re: AMF All Time Artists List 2019 - Results

It would be cool to see a poll of artists unranked on AM. Probably popular artists that are looked down on by critics would top it. Possibly they could also be artists that sit outside the usual wheelhouse of artists that critics usually cover. I had fifteen unacclaimed artists in my top 200: 78. G...

Re: Halfway through the 80s poll: thoughts and ideas

It's normal to have more favorite songs than albums. A great album contains at least two great songs and there are extra songs not from a studio album.

Re: Halfway through the 80s poll: thoughts and ideas

The results of 1984 are practically a carbon copy of the official critics' list. That's a pity, because I don't see the point of organizing a huge year-long poll if the results are roughly known in advance. Maybe a tournament like 80s madness would be an idea, although there are so many tournaments ...
