The JSR and JSRF soundtracks did have them, which is why they are on there. If Pierre wants to add it onto the list, then I will put it on mine as well.
As it stands, I'm going to include BG&E on my list. DocBrown has not provided a final answer to me, but since it's mentioned on RYM, I guess it's OK. That's cool, I didn't expect someone else to actually include it on his/her list!
Sorry, thought my answer was final; if you can document its existence (which you have, thanks) I will accept it.
I assumed as much, I guess that by my professional and familial background, I have the culture of confirmation and double checks. Thanks for confirming!

Thanks, I was planning to bump this thread with a voting update for September 1, but as usual, I procrastinated with the data entry!

With one month down and one to go, we have received ten submissions;
Stone37
Vanilla Fire
Schaeffer
Henry
McJagger
Whuntva
Gillingham
BleuPanda
Jirin
Romain,
and of course, DocBrown.

2314 separate albums have received at least a single vote, with almost 1000 from outside the AM top 3000! At this point a first place vote will still put any album, ranked or not, into the top 500. Keep those ballots coming, so I can actually sleep for an hour or two come October 1. :happy-partydance:

A couple of other factoids:

As of the last ballot received, no album is a unanimous choice
Only one album in the AM Top 200 fails to make the cut
There are five albums from outside AM (not ranked or bubbling) still in the Top 500
Spoiler alert! Iceland is doing particularly well in punching above its weight. As is, predictably, Belgium.

I had a list of just over 400 put into Moonbeam's program about a year ago, but I found myself ranking albums that I didn't truly know and appreciate, so I let it go. The half-life feature on that program meant that I just wanted to start all over again.

This time, I'm aiming for a list of about 300, which I will (sadly) give towards the end of the month. Thanks DocBrown!

I must wait until the end of the month because my list is ever-expanding, and also Kanye might release his new album this month. He said he would, so it's like 10% chance it comes out this month :D
I feel like that

This thing has literally been giving me headaches. It'll probably be submitted by me later rather than sooner :-?

I'm gonna submit mine towards the end of September. I'll use the poll as a great motivation to finally make some time and get going with my ever-expanding albums "waiting list".

Thread Bump! :text-bump:

We have submissions from 15 AMer's to date:

Sonofsamiam
LiveinPhoenix
Jeff
Nick
Stone37
Vanilla Fire
Schaeffer
Henry
McJagger
Whuntva
Gillingham
BleuPanda
Jirin
Romain,
and of course, DocBrown.

And your host has been supplanted by Jeff! as the most non-conformist submitter to date with 244 (48.8%) of his 500 albums from outside the AM canon (3000 albums+bubblers). The highest correlation with the AM list is also a new arrival... Nick!

Unfortunately, I haven't had time this week to generate any stats for your continued amusement... :whistle:

Let's continue working on those lists; the deadline is less than two weeks way!

Correct! Although, not any more...
And Jirin wins... the usual AM prize package.

With one week before the deadline we have 21 ballots:

Honorio, Nassim, Antonius, Henrik, Stephan, Sonofsamiam, BonnieLaurel, Jeff, LiveInPhoenix, Nick, Stone37, VanillaFire1000, Schaeffer, Henry, McJagger, Whuntva, Gillingham, BleuPanda, Jirin, DocBrown, Romain.

And of those 21, how many included their NAME in the title of the spreadsheet they sent me? Three.

Moonbeam, Nicolas, JimmyJazz, Mindrocker! I know you're polishing those last minute additions but don't keep us guessing! GucciLittlePiggy, ListyGuy, LukeJR68! Kanye is not dropping a new album before Tuesday, and how are you going to decide if it's an all time classic before midnight? Six days to go; send your Excel spreadsheet to cedarcy9@gmail.com, or PM your list to me right here------------->

Looking forward to some BIG surprises in this year's poll :o

:text-imsorry:
Unless you want a top 15 or so topped by the Book of Mormon Soundtrack (I've been primarily a tracks auteur for the extent of my music loving life, my album experience is "sparse" to say the least), I wouldn't count on a list from me... Hopefully in two or three years time when the next one of these rolls out, I'll have something resembling a list to submit and second guess like the rest of you :music-listening:

I'll post ASAP. I wanted to wait until the last minute but I'm so overwhelmed with work that I hadn't time. You'll have it by Sunday night.

I've narrowed things down to a three-tier top 400, which I will rank as non-randomly as I possibly can and send over the weekend. Looking forward to the results!

Submitted mine in a PM plus a post in the other thread. Too bad about no Mindrocker, but we can still enjoy the previous list he posted.

Is it okay if I submit a slightly modified list (with the inclusion of one of my favorite albums in the top 20 that I somehow forgot to include initially)?

Yes, McJagger, if you just realized Bieber's Christmas album is ALSO eligible, you may revise your list accordingly. :mrgreen:
