The Best Albums & Songs of the 1990s

Post by DaveC » Sun Dec 02, 2018 9:36 pm

Decade poll time.

You don't have to have participated in the year polls to vote in the decade poll.

Put your rank (1, 2, 3, etc) into the “rank” column of the excel sheet (below). If you have not heard a song or album, please leave the rank cell blank. Songs/albums you don't rank will be given the same score as the song/album in the middle of your list, so if you don't like a song/album do rank it so that it doesn't end up being bumped up in a way you didn't intend. The rank cells will be highlighted in pink if you give two albums/songs the same rank.

Please include comments if you are so inclined - all comments will be published in the roll-out.

Send your completed 1990s poll worksheet to amf1990spoll@gmail.com by:-

Songs Deadline: February 1st 2019
Albums Deadline: February 8th 2019

More information & analysis to follow.

I have changed the playlist. Some may disagree, but I do find the Long Dance the better version.

That deadline crept up!

I will put a vote in. It shouldn't take too long as I've rated the full list previously. I'll likely send it on the deadline (on Friday).

I'm probably not going to get a songs list in unless deadline is extended but working on albums now.

My highest ranked album to not be on the list is Time Out Of Mind at my #15. I was surprised my #1 was ON the list, but equally surprised Time Out Of Mind is not.
