Re: Site update

Also, a question I've always wondered: what exactly causes an album to have a massive drop? Gains are made by making more lists, but I've never been able to understand the opposite. Are certain lists removed or replaced over time? A massive drop is usually the result of lists having been deleted. F...

Re: Site update

Henrik, any chance you can tell us what the highest album jump for a non-2013 album is? 1,235 just how high of a spot leap, and maybe the ranking of said album? You can't fool me... ;) Aw okay, one more. How many new albums are in the top 500, and did any make any significant leaps to get there?

Not to toot my own horn, but it seems like I was at least somewhat correct. There are a lot of "Album artists" who are getting a great deal of songs added, which makes sense; you can't have great albums without great songs.

I'm particularly sad that "She's a Jar" and "Sunken Treasure" didn't make it, as those are both in my top 10 Wilco songs, and top 50 of the 90s.
