I did not have time to re-run the database after this correction, so it is still wrong.

Hi Henrik,

Great news! Thanks so much for your hard work and looking forward to getting tucked into this properly.

Here's a few things that I've spotted quickly:

1. When using a Mac and/or PC, the scrolling on the front page is now quite annoying. There seem to be two scrolling zones (I don't know the technical terms!) which is new and is quite frustrating to operate. This works fine on a phone though.

2. When using an iPhone though, none of the Spotify links appear any more on individual song pages (I get an 'aw snap!' error). Do others get this?

3. Some more minor things. The Spotify link for The Crazy World of Arthur Brown's "Fire" has disappeared since the artist name was updated (it is still on the Spotify playlist).

4. There's a slight error regarding the Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment entry: the Feat. Jamila Woods credited has accidentally gone on the album 'Surf' page rather than on the song "Sunday Candy".

Thanks again!

James

Thanks for these comments, James. What browser(s) did you use when you got the first error?

On my iphone I don’t have a problem with either error 2 or 3.

Hi Henrik,

Strange - points 2 and 3 are now fine for me too. Not sure what happened there!

For point 1, I used Firefox on a Mac and Google Chrome on a Windows PC. Neither are the newest of machines (3 years or so) so the browsers may be a little old!

Cheers,

James

Lil Jon's "Get Low" is listed as featuring "Ying-Yang Twins" - there's no hyphen in the name.
(also, the song's missing from their page - http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/artist/Yi ... 0Twins.htm)

Migos' "Bad and Boujee" is missing from Lil Uzi Vert's page.

Cham featuring Akon's "Ghetto Story" - Worth noting that the original version of this song ("Ghetto Story") only featured Cham, while the remix version ("Ghetto Story Chapter 3") featured Akon. Its song page contains lists which feature the original version and lists which feature the remix, so perhaps the song could be relisted as "Ghetto Story / Ghetto Story Chapter 3 (feat. Akon)", or something along the lines of that?

Zomby's "Natalia's Song" - This is a bit of an anomaly in the sense that this song was originally credited solely to Zomby. Reark argued that he was wrongfully omitted from the credits, filed a complaint with the label (4AD), and 4AD agreed and had him added to the song's artist credits a few months after its release. The song now shows up on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, the 4AD website, etc. credited to both Zomby and Reark. Not sure what the procedure would be here but one could make the case that he should be credited here too.

The Orb's "A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules from the Centre of the Ultraworld" was first released in 1989.

"G-Love and Special Sauce" --> "G. Love and Special Sauce"

Top artists page for Alaska (http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/country/USA_Alaska.htm) turns up a dead link.

Some missing artist credits:
Massive Attack's "Protection" - this is credited to "Massive Attack with Tracey Thorn" on its single cover (though not on the album, so I'm not entirely sure of procedure here)
Method Man, Redman, Canibus and DMX - featured on LL Cool J's "4,3,2,1"
Missy Elliott - featured on Tweet's "Oops (Oh My)"
Chrome - featured on Dizzee Rascal's "Dance wiv Me"
Lazy Jay - featured on Azealia Banks' "212"

Some AllMusic changes (noted back on the ratings changes page):
4.5 stars:
Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked at Me

5 stars:
Baroness - Blue Record
Boris - Pink
Broadcast - The Noise Made by People
Broadcast - Haha Sound
Camera Obscura - Let's Get Out of This Country
J Dilla - Donuts
The Knife - Silent Shout
Kvelertak - Meir
The Microphones - The Glow, Pt. 2
Oneohtrix Point Never - Replica
Max Richter - The Blue Notebooks

Hi Henrik,

Issue 1 I mentioned above is fixed now (you probably know this!). And I think error 2 was caused by me not being logged in to Spotify on my phone at the time.

I've spotted something else though, but not sure how widespread it is as I've only had a chance to check a few pages at random.

On an individual song page (e.g. Talk Talk's "Such a Shame" - http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/song/S8672.htm), it lists the all time, decade and year ranking. Except I don't think these have been updated: "Such a Shame" fell from #3457 to #3527 in the all time list, and from #548 to #549 in the decade list, but the previous positions are shown.

Similarly, "Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)" by Run the Jewels climbed from #1818 to #1786 in the all time list and fell from #137 to #150 in the decade list but the 2017 ranking is shown.

The same is replicated on the albums pages: 'Run the Jewels 2' (http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/album/A5392.htm) shows the 2017 positions for both all time and decade rankings.

From my brief look, the year rankings seem ok, but probably worth checking!

Cheers,

James

Is it correct that Nina Simone's Pastel Blues doesn't have enough critic recommendations to be bubbling under? It placed high in the Pitchfork 60s albums list.

Postby Hymie » Sun Aug 05, 2018 1:03 am

This has been an error all along. "This Land Is Your Land" was not released in 1951. This is the album that it supposedly was from:

As you can see, it's a various artist album with a very similar title to the song, but that song is not on the album. This is a mistake originally made by somebody decades ago, and it has persisted til now. Not sure when the track was first issued, but it definitely was not 1951.

But it's not your land
And it's not your land

Or else go back to your land

Okay, it looks like the song is on that album, and they did not list it on the cover. Here's the Discogs listing with a picture of the label. The title is "This Land Is My Land."

The reissue clears up what was confusing me.

https://www.discogs.com/Various-This-La ... se/3146825

The titles on the original cover were not the song titles. They were descriptions of which workers each song was about. But the correct title of the song seems to be "This Land Is My Land."

Henrik had said numerous times that he wasn't going to be adding any pre-2017 albums to the lists in this update (with the single obvious exception of 2016's Run The Jewels 3 because of its performance in the 2017 EOY lists). If we ever do see another all-time lists update Pastel Blues would almost certainly be added.

On the 1982 and 1980s list, "Taschenrechner / Pocket Calculator" by Kraftwerk is listed as being by "Taschenrechner / Pocket Calculator" (the song title is listed in the artist column). It appears correct on the all-time list.

This one is pretty significant: Steve Lacy, the jazz saxophonist whose 1959 album Reflections: Steve Lacy Plays Thelonious Monk is in the top 3000, is NOT the same person as Steve Lacy, the hip-hop producer and member of The Internet who appears on the Songs list as a featured artist on Tyler, The Creator's "911/Mr. Lonely." (Jazz Steve Lacy died in 2004.)

Right now they're conflated on the same artist page, with an all-time artist rank of #1996. They each need their own artist page, obviously, which would create two separate rankings as well.

Hi Henrik,

A few minor observations...

1. "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" by The Pet Shop Boys feat. Dusty Springfield is missing the question mark on Dusty Springfield's artist page only (it's correct on The Pet Shop Boys')

2. "Rocket 88' should be credited to Jackie Brenton and His Delta Cats

3. Gorillaz "Clint Eastwood" features Del tha Funky Homosapien

4. I think all Neil Young's songs for 1979 ("Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)", "Powderfinger" and "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)" should be credited to Neil Young & Crazy House rather than Neil Young with Crazy Horse as that's how the Rust Never Sleeps album lists them. The other 1979 track "Pocahontas" is already listed that way

5. The accepted spelling of Björk's "Hyperballad" seems to be without a hyphen. That said, it fist appeared on Post with a hyper included, but with a small 'b' (i.e. "Hyper-ballad"). So I think one or other of those should be used

6. It also seems to be accepted that there should be a question mark on "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?" by Fairport Convention

7. Ministry's "Jesus Built My Hotrod" should list 'hotrod' as one word. It was also first released as a single in 1991

8. "Life Is Sweet" by The Chemical Brothers features Tim Burgess

9. "Kanga Roo" by Big Star was first written as two words with no hyphen

10. Finally, one that's really very petty and isn't an error, but is inconsistent with other uses on the site... "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" by R.E.M. should probably have the 'as' listed without a capital 'a'

Ta,

James

The Shamen’s ”Pro>gen” and ”Move Any Mountain” should be merged into one song entry, I think. In fact, after a comment by Sweepstakes Ron a couple of years ago, I thought I had already made this change.

I Don't know if this has been raised or not but i'm pretty sure the Amy Winehouse song is 'Me and Mr. Jones', rather than 'Me and Mrs. Jones' which it is listed as. It's a reference rather than cover of Billy Paul

Maybe I was asked to change the title track to 1967 (which I think would be correct) but changed the album info instead. :(
