Re: EOY predictions

I'm not so sure. I think the #2 placement had a lot to do with that Kanye just wasn't that admired in Europe at the time. That's true. It's easy to get sucked into your countries critics view of things, because unless you go out of your way to pay attention to other critics, that's what you always ...

Yes, it's been discussed already in the past years, especially with the releases of Beyoncé's self-titled or D'Angelo's Black Messiah , for instance.

Re: EOY predictions

Most of you may have already noticed this, but isn't it a bit early for EOY ? we're in the middle of November ! Does this mean that there are no decent releases planned in the next 6 weeks ?

Re: EOY predictions

Well, early UK lists are here with Uncut and Mojo. Lessons so far: - UK is all behind Blackstar - Skeleton Tree and You Want It Darker doing pretty good too - Lemonade around ~10 - PJ Harvey much higher than her MCCh rank - It seems Radiohead is going to end up very high when all is said and done (...

Re: EOY predictions

My only problem with the idea that Radiohead will win the AOTY is the fact that Radiohead already has 3 AOTYs under their belt (and seeing as the #2 album of 1995 is "The Bends", it's basically 4). On top of that, "OK Computer" and "Kid A" are among the first albums to...

It's pretty amazing that Nick Cave currently has the top album of the year.

24 of the 88 diamond albums appear in the AM top 200, while 26 don't even appear bubbling under. I wonder what this says, if anything, about the tastes of the masses? It actually says very little. Some great albums sell a lot, some don't. I think it's worth noting that most of the top 100 albums ar...

Alright. I don't think I will go as low as 10, as that would probably mean hundreds of lists to add, but you can add the list in the best to worst albums summary thread.

Re: ACCLAIMED MUSIC'S INOFFICIAL UPDATE 2016

Are you now only attributing two artist albums to primary artists? i.e. Billy Bragg & Wilco's Mermaid Avenue? Because California Stars was fully written by Wilco, and Billy Bragg only played rhythm guitar. Don't think it's fair to dock them one of their highest rated songs.
