I have at least a semi-decent feeling that most of the albums on my list stand a good chance at ranking high, since I only picked 20. Then again, I think it might take a miracle for The Stranger to make it much higher (and I'd be very surprised, albeit very pleased, if it somehow made the top 500).

Good taste! Tribe deserve all the praise they get, and I'm glad the last album received so much of it.

Oh, I would have voted for Singles Going Steady...
Cocteau Twins – Heaven or Las Vegas. 4 stars/5.
This band is a miracle. Like a cross between the Cranberries at their least petulant and Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons. Key track: It's track #10. I can't pronounce it.

Wow, 3 Weeknd albums!

I completely forgot about Chvrches. "Bones" will definitely be showing up then.

This is a lot of albums showing up from 2016. Is this an especially good year for music, or is it the usual thing where the latest year tends to get a lot of votes?

Me too. I voted for both 1978 studio albums. Good to see that they made the list anyway.

Nick Cave, obsessed with murder and death, is at #666.
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

And somehow I didn't vote for it. :P

It's impressive that A Wizard, a True Star and Making Movies both ranked so high, despite only receiving five votes each. Some very passionate fans of each album, including me for the latter.

"Tropicália ou Panis et Circencis" is ranked on AM.

Great presentation!

Great to see that Georgie and Slucs also appreciate Todd's "A Wizard, A True Star." I am interested in finding out which other two poll participants included this wonderful album in their lists.

And somehow I didn't vote for it. :P

It's impressive that A Wizard, a True Star and Making Movies both ranked so high, despite only receiving five votes each. Some very passionate fans of each album, including me for the latter.


Yeah, I was one of the two Making Movies voters that didn't place it in the top 100, putting it at #152. Glad to see it do so well!

I'm so happy Hadestown made the cut.

If only it had fallen at 666 just like Why We Build The Wall. :)

Speaking of which, serious 'Life imitates art' going on with that song.

You sold me on it last time around. You can hear part of the original cast recording from the off-Broadway production last year here: (sorry, can't figure out how to embed on mobile)

I agree, I got a bit emotional for a brief second. Proud of them!

Good taste! Tribe deserve all the praise they get, and I'm glad the last album received so much of it.


I'm happy to be its biggest fan. It's always hard to rate your favorite albums of recent years on your all-time list, but I think this album (and Blackstar, which I ranked around 70) will stand the test of time.

Going over my albums list would have stolen too much time from the coming site update, but if I had voted, I would have been another top fan. :greetings-waveyellow:

Love the variety and unpredictability of this poll. Really surprised and glad by the Freddie Gibbs/Madlib - Pinata That's the biggest surprise by far for me. The two The Weeknd albums surprised me as well, of course not House of Balloons, that was expected but those other two were subpar and subpar especially compared to Balloons. I'm wondering if the freshness/newness of those two albums played a factor, if so I'd be curious to see in about 3 years if those two albums are still in the top 1000.

Michael Jackson's "HIStory"? That was... unexpected. And also slightly unfair. Half of this "album" (the entirety of disc one) is just a compilation, and not even a rarities compilation - it's a greatest hits. So I wonder if this sort of album should be allowed. I don't really have a position on the matter yet, I just wonder what rules may apply here. I also wonder if our fellow forum members who voted for this record disregarded disc 1 and just cast their vote based on disc 2. Now disc 2 is generally considered average at best, so if that is what happened, it may indeed be the most surprising placement on this poll.

I don't really have a position on the matter yet, I just wonder what rules may apply here. I also wonder if our fellow forum members who voted for this record disregarded disc 1 and just cast their vote based on disc 2. Now disc 2 is generally considered average at best, so if that is what happened, it may indeed be the most surprising placement on this poll.

Yes, my vote was based only in the disc 2.
A very good album with great personal lyrics and strong singles.

I always considered "HIStory" to have been underestimated after being released after the allegations.

Michael Jackson's "HIStory"? That was... unexpected. And also slightly unfair. Half of this "album" (the entirety of disc one) is just a compilation, and not even a rarities compilation - it's a greatest hits. So I wonder if this sort of album should be allowed.

I was also pretty surprised to see HIStory on this list, I didn't even realize it wasn't a full compilation.

Also not to be that guy, but the three "top fans" of the album have a combined 8 posts on the forum. I think that says a lot about why it's there.

Two of those were in that controversial group from last year; so they don't really participate in the forum, but they did stick around for our poll. Their presence is less pronounced, though, due to each list allowing 500 entrants compared to 100 artists last year.

I apologize for not participating actively in the forum, my time is very short because of my job. I participate in the voting because I always liked to follow the results, long before I started participating. Very good presentation, by the way :greetings-waveyellow:

And answering spiderpig's doubt, I only took the disc 2 (HIStory) into consideration.
So come on let it go..
Just let it be... :music-listening:

I'm in no position to judge here, as I have posted less than 20 times in the new forums (although I've been around for a while). I've always been reluctant to vote (now is my first time) because I rarely participate in the discussion, even though I often lurk. I would be cool with weighted votes depending on a user's forum participation, though (kind of like how I think RYM does their ratings). It could, however, be too complicated and also discouraging for new users. If I remember correctly, though, one the post-results lists is usually a list of the results counting only the votes from regular users.

This trio of voters definitely seems to be helping this good showing for mainstream music. Fun fact: they were also the top three fans of The Weeknd's "Starboy". Personally, I'm not too fond of this flirt with mainstream music but tastes are tastes. One man's meat is another man's poison, as they say.

Same here. You're definitely interested, though, because you spotted this right away! Cool! I also like to follow the results. And I actually regularly use the final results spreadsheets! This forum has produced some great lists.

That's good to know. I think that's the spirit of this poll. And it's definitely an intriguing choice, since it's not even on the AM list, despite coming from a well-known artist. Anyway, this poll is also a great way of learning about more obscure artists. I hope you can find out some new cool music here. I certainly do, every time!

Glad that Cocteau Twins has fans here. I've been listening to that album for my 1990 homework, and it should easily make my list.
Cocteau Twins – Heaven or Las Vegas. 4 stars/5.
This band is a miracle. Like a cross between the Cranberries at their least petulant and Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons. Key track: It's track #10. I can't pronounce it.

Yeah I would definitely like to see a "forum regular" (whatever that is) version of the final list. But I don't think we should weight lists; everyone's vote should be equal (assuming everyone voting is voting only once and that we don't have any robots voting).

There will likely be a list at the end to compare the list with just members who voted in 2014 and 2017 to see what changed; in regards to the other topics, we had this discussion last year, a bunch of people got mad, so I'd like to suggest we end this here.
