They'll be posted soon enough - I did the same thing two weeks ago. I'm not quite sure why Otisredding doesn't simply post the entire update at once. It's not like the unveiling of poll results, where a gradual rollout makes sense and build suspense - this is a biweekly update of this year's albums. I don't really need suspense, I just want to know where Dr. John ended up, you know?

Hello Harlod. I do not want to act with suspense. I need some time to make the presentation. For example, the number 13, Earth, no appears in the appropriate format. I have an hour trying to solve this.

Sorry. Try to do better on April 30

Otis, no need to apologize or "try to do better" - you do a great job, and we're all grateful that you took this on. But I do think it would be OK to post the entire update all in one shot, even if the formatting takes a while.

Great presentation again, Otis!

What does this mean? That they have reviewed less than half of the albums compared with the included sources? Or have they reviewed less than half of the 35 albums in your list? Or less than half of the albums in your source file?

1) 34 magazines
2) only the final list are those who have received 7 or more grades. I call them "ranked albums"
3) I calculate the average of ratings received by these "ranked albums"
4) I remove the scores of magazines that do not reach 50% of this average

I do not know if this is understandable. I use the google translator

I hope Dr. John jumps up to the top in the next update. What a great album! I wish I will have that energy when I'm 71.
