Re: The Quietus: "I Prefer Their Later Work": 40 Brilliant Albums At The End Of Artists' Careers (2017)

A bit odd to see Pleased to Meet Me in there, I guess it's 3 years before they broke up but it doesn't feel like it's a late album. Or by this criteria, just throw The Queen is Dead or even Nevermind the Bollocks in.

Also can't understand how they can pick Era Vulgaris over Like Clockwork.

Re: The AMF Top Songs of All Time 2018 Edition

Personaly I have ranked my top 200 or so thoroughly then grouped the rest in 5 tiers. The rank within those tiers is randomized, as much for gain of time and because at some point choosing between my 554th and 555th doesn't make much sense.
