3000 ranked albums, how many artists between them?

Post by Tortuga » Fri Dec 23, 2016 6:16 pm

In other words: how many artists are there on AM that have at least one ranked album?

If anyone could actually answer this without going through every single artist one-by-one, I'd be very impressed...

Well the "top 100 artists ranked only based on albums" already represent (exactly) 700 albums. And there are 32 other artists with 5 albums or more (including Scott Walker and Duke Ellington with 8 each)
That's almost 900 albums for 132 artists!

Hmm...that got me wondering what would be the highest-rated "one hit wonder" albums (by artists who have only one album in the top 3000). It is worth noting that some of these (the most obvious example being Kendrick Lamar) will have more than one album in the top 3000 when the site is updated. Interestingly, at least two artists (Tina Turner and Lauryn Hill) appear on this list twice, as solo artists and members of other groups, both of which only had one Top 3000 album.
  1. (#12) Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks - Here's the Sex Pistols (1977)
