Wow, I totally forgot to include The B-52's on my list! It's not a fully female album, which is probably why I forgot it... :angry-banghead:

Now I’m curious if Crow’s s/t will appear higher. I always considered it the far superior complete album and Tuesday Night a singles and filler album, I’d be surprised to see it listed and s/t left off.

I love the inclusion of two Whitney Houston albums so far. I wonder if any album by Mariah Carey will show up eventually because she's by far the Pop Diva with the best discography.

Amazing job, BleuPanda!

Great rollout so far BleuPanda.

The Suzanne Vega albums rather jump out at me - because I haven't listened to any of them (just a few songs), something to be corrected.

Thanks for your comment Henrik.

Agreed! I was surprised that One Beat finished on par with The Woods and Dig Me Out. One Beat is my personal favorite of the three, but I didn't think other felt the same way.

So that's it for today. I think I'm going to slow it down after today, going for 15 reveals tomorrow and then the top 10 on Sunday.

I'm doing the biggest fan section by hand still, so sorry if I missed anyone throughout this. I didn't realize The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill got so many top 10 votes. I had to doublecheck there wasn't something wrong with the formula, but it looks correct. Meanwhile, there's still one album with no top 10 votes (though 9 of its 10 voters placed it in their top 30, so...).

If I was counting mixed-gender bands I probably would have put Silent Shout as my #1.

I have a question for people who voted Tuesday Night Music Club and not Sheryl Crow s/t. I'm surprised to see the former rated higher than the later, to me Tuesday Night Music Club is All I Wanna Do, Strong Enough, then filler, whereas I think If It Makes You Happy and Every Day Is A Winding Road are individually much stronger than those two songs, and then the rest of the album is more uniformly strong. I knew All I Wanna Do was her most acclaimed single but I always thought of s/t as her most acclaimed album.

Hell, I'd put the heavily flawed Globe Sessions above TNMC, as a whole album.

So if my calculations are correct, there is one artist (who I won't name but you can probably all guess who it is) that has four albums left to place. How high will they get? Will they all crack the top 15? I feel like that's a little excessive.

I actually expect three of her albums in the top 10 and the last one might very well make the top 15. I'm not the one to judge whether it is excessive or not as I'm not overly familiar with those albums. But she is a real album artist with a varied career that also appeals to this forum, so I guess it was to be expected.

For those of you who don't know who we're talking about I'll give you a hint: she's a woman.

Sorry for the slowed roll-out today. Had a friend over to get deeper into Gloomhaven and then had my usual Saturday night movie/board game group.

Agreed. She's So Unusual is damn good, glad to see it got some respect. A lot of classics on there.

Interesting to see Rumours only place at 15. I assume some people didn't consider it a female album.

I wish To Bring You My Love had made a better run at the top ten. I enjoy Bjork but I think PJ Harvey has had an even better run among 1990-2010s female artists.

I moved it down a bit since some of the songs are Lindsey’s.

So it's now theoretically possible that the aforementioned artist could have four albums in the top seven, although I expect it'll be three.

I have three of the probable final four figured out, two by the forementioned person and one very colorful album. Must be a fourth obvious oneI'm just not thinking of.

It could be an album with a very prominent female vocalist that I wouldn't have considered a female album, now that I think about it.

Right? I listened to it after the most recent album poll (I listened to every album I hadn't heard), and it was a definite standout. I just wish her stuff was more easily available in the United States...
