AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- List Thread

Postby notbrianeno » Sat Mar 25, 2017 5:33 am

Welcome one and all to the Acclaimed Music Forum Favorite Albums of All-Time 2017 Edition!

You can submit up to 500 albums per ballot either here in this thread, or by PM. The formula used will be the same as last time: 100 - [square root(18.5*Placement-1)]. In DocBrown's own words "While the scoring range remains similar to the prior polls, the lower half of your list will be somewhat more significant to the overall scores. That is to say your 400th album will be worth about as many points under this formula as your 275th album would have been under the other. A 137th place album will score 50 points."

EP's are eligible as per the "Burial Clause"

Feel free to edit your lists any time between now and the closing of the poll, just make sure to send me a PM or quote me. Use this thread to show off your own unique taste! Commentary is extremely encouraged, and will be used in the final results.

Deadline to submit or edit lists is June 30th, 2017

Happy Voting!

Gotta do some more listening before I submit anything. I have a pretty good idea of what it's going to be, but I need to be sure of it first. All I can say at the moment is that my #1 will probably be Wu-Tang Clan's Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

How do you make a list like that? After working hard on my year lists during the past three years I'm looking forward to compiling a top 500. I'm working on it on Google Sheets. First I pick an average of nine albums a year, give them a score from 10 to 99 indicating how high I want it approximately in the top 500. That seems the most effective way to rank such a large number of albums. I can add, remove and edit as often as I want, and easily check which artist has how many albums. I want it to be a mixture of recognized classics and personal favorites. Dominating genres will be classick rock and pop, soul and R&B, but I'll also include a bit of jazz and world music.

I'd like to have a go at this, but is the program still available ?

I hereby promise to listen to any album I haven't heard before that makes someone's top 10 (and take it into account for my vote if posted early enough). So Bola's Fyuti here I come (I also haven't checked The United States of America in my check list though I'm pretty sure I listened to it for a poll... Will give it another spin anyway)

Indeed, the link is no longer valid. Many forumer have it, maybe one of us would be able to upload it somewhere? Alternatively, maybe Moonbeam will make an appearance in the near future and can provide a new link?

I too would love to see this program. I've never used it before and my albums list is due for an overhaul, so this program sounds just right for me.

I am taking this occasion to inflict my taste upon you, good sir. My Top Ten doesn't change much, and will probably look like:

1. Nirvana - Nevermind
2. Bruce Springsteen - Born in the U.S.A
3. Joy Division - Closer
4. Sting - The Soul Cages

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- List Thread

Postby BleuPanda » Mon Mar 27, 2017 10:18 pm

I just happened to redo my album list about a week ago, so here's my top 500 (note I'm sure A Crow Looked At Me is top 200 level, but I need time; I'll likely add new albums by the deadline but keep those already here the same). But first, ten albums from my top 250 I feel are under-discussed and would love to see other people check out:
John Zorn - Naked City
Mogwai - Young Team
Boredoms - Vision Creation Newsun
The Pop Group - Y
The KLF - The White Room
Sleigh Bells - Treats
The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike!
Le Tigre - Le Tigre
Meat Puppets - Meat Puppets II
The Seatbelts - Cowboy Bebop

That Top 100 is honestly one of the best art rock lists I've ever seen. Now, I just gotta get you into soul, jazz, hip-hop, and modern classical. :music-rockon:

Feel free to change this post or update your votes to add new albums! You never know, your new number one could drop tomorrow!

I'm probably going to use some of your lists as listening guides. Those and the Spin Alternative book should help get me through this. Maybe the NME and Rolling Stones lists. I barely have 50 so far.

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- List Thread

Postby spiritualized » Tue Mar 28, 2017 11:52 am

Here is mine and a bit of a challenge for Nassim, as I am curious if he has listened to my top 10 (I would expect he has). Number 14 is probably unknown to anyone but me.
Extremely difficult to rank these. The top 150 are absolute classics, the ones I would definitely take with me on a desert island. But their order could vary from day to day. And today, it's this order.
The rest are trailing just behind, but by a smidgeon.

What's the minimum amount for a list? I think I could scrape together something, but getting to 100 may be too difficult.

It would depend on how many ballots we get and how many albums are submitted, but ideally, 1000

Actually Romain pointed out something quite relevant. Are compilations allowed ? Even artists career spanning ones ?

My guess is that they are not, in which case i will need to amend my list...

Nobody's said we can't. Hatful of Hollow and Legend are shoo-ins on my list.

The general rule has been that if it's included on AM (like Hatful of Hollow), then it's acceptable. If not, then the compilation is excluded.

Will we ever do an ALL COMPILATION POLL? I know hipster snobs hate best ofs and singles collections but my all time favorite records tend to be singles collections, greatest hits and ep collections.

I think because it's a compilation of singles released at the same time as their studio records as opposed to a best-of.

I think it's a good way to judge this affair :-)
Because, if allowed, I will put the Red and The blue albums by the Beatles or Grrrr... by The Rolling Stones and I remove all their albums :D

The rule is usually to include them if the material in it had never been released on albums before. That's why Hatful of Follow is on AM and Elliott Smith's New Moon is bubbling.

OK, that's good for me, but it raises a few other questions :

What about "thematic" compilations or tributes (like I'm Your Fan, or Macro Dub Infection) ?
And Live recordings (thinking about Neil Young's Weld)

Live recordings are fine. Waiting for an elder forum member to come up with a definitive answer on thematic compilations

By the way, a formal compilation album poll would be difficult since a lot of musicians' hits have been re-packaged many times over, which would likely cause vote-splitting. Long-standing best-of packages, which accumulate their own sort of nostalgia (to which I am not immune) maybe upset the premise of picking the "best" compilation...
Hole – Pretty on the Inside. 1 star/5.
Dear God, is there a single song here? (Imagine buying The Buzzcocks' Singles Going Steady on the same day, and having to compare the two.) Somehow, their next time at bat, they got 500 million times better.
