Diana Ross and The Supremes so close to each other.

Glad to see Janet, Whitney and Mariah so close to the top 100.

Is it possible that my complete top 50 has made it into the top 500?
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

Robyn drops her most critically acclaimed album in 2018 and appropriately moves up significantly. Low releases their most critically acclaimed album in 2018 and...moves down 2 spots. Strange!

Cool presentation of the top 100!

I hope you use a golden font once ZZ Top shows up at #1 (yes, it is still possible!).

There is a 1 in their position, certainly. Unfortunately there are several other numbers after it...

There is a pub in Norway (or was that Iceland) that only plays Steely Dan songs. Talk about CULT group!

As we get close to our top 25, we may want to consider how music recording producers view the top "rock" performers - https://newarena.com/entertainment/the- ... tbdt_nar_e

I, for one, would welcome a takeover of ZZ Top for the top spot ahead of who usually finishes there.

Pretty surprising to see Van Morrison as low as he is (not that I helped). Only two votes higher than his AM rank, too!

Awesome to see Parliament/Funkadelic back in the top 100. I'm kind of shocked they aren't top 50 staples both here and on AM in general. Their sphere of influence was so massive!

Interesting to see that Kendrick Lamar’s position in this poll fell from three years ago. I figured that with the release of DAMN. (which is the most acclaimed album of 2017 by miles), and his position as this decade’s most acclaimed artist would give him a boost, but I guess this poll has suggested otherwise. I didn’t vote in this poll, but if I did he definitely would’ve been #1 on my list, as he is easily the one musician who’s made the most impact on my life, musically and personally.

I'm also surprised that Kendrick has dropped this time around. I haven't listened to any of his albums yet, but it he seems to be the most beloved artist of the 2010s.

Nice to see Kate Bush rise and rise!

Interesting to see Tom Waits, Marvin Gaye, and The Kinks post their worst positions in the artist poll. The Kinks in particular have really fallen off, sadly.

It would be cool to see a poll of artists unranked on AM. Probably popular artists that are looked down on by critics would top it. Possibly they could also be artists that sit outside the usual wheelhouse of artists that critics usually cover.
The realest feel - "I can't sleep, it's too hot."

I had fifteen unacclaimed artists in my top 200:

78. Gloria Estefan
86. Lindi Ortega
89. Noa
103. GoGo Penguin
104. The Corrs
120. Cristina Branco
123. Angélique Kidjo
131. Skunk Anansie
133. Paco de Lucía
145. Ashanti
151. Portico Quartet
166. Anoushka Shankar
169. Mor Karbasi
179. Sheena Ringo
181. Amy Macdonald

A lot of interesting artists would only get one vote, often instrumental or non-English.

Artists coming in at perfect speed.

Going through artists I didn't recognize earlier from 500 and down... [AM suggested songs, a few outstanding songs on most prominent albums, high number of votes on This Is My Jam and what catches they eye on lower rated albums and eps on RYM plus the search for 'best songs' on google skipping greatest.] Now equipped with a Hegel amplifier in the kitchen with Audiovector QR1 speakers. Clean digital audio sound directly to the DAC in the amp. All white as the kitchen table. Speakers seem to "live" and "eeks" while pounding out treble rich sound. English feeling.

Found:

Exuma - The Obeah Man
Chromatics - Shining Violence
Tortoise - Gamera [must sound great on ep]
Silverchair - Straight Lines (good for a few spins)
Grizzly Bear - 'Neighbors' plus a few more
Roy Harper - Old Cricketer

Not exactly earth shattering but happy to find ten or twenty new entries or so for the future. Next Roy Harper and Viper.

PS. Roy Harper seem to be a guy in harmony.
