Mixing hip-hop beats and beautiful symphonic (mostly horns) arrangements into R&B music, completing the influence loop.

They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

(Hopefully, Honorio will continue Rank the Tracks in some form for a very long time. I can't tell you how helpful this has been to me in reevaluating albums - some of which I haven't heard for years.)

You can count on me fot this, sure. "Back to Black" is the 65th album we are ranking, we have 35 more to get to 100. And yes, revisiting critically those (almost) forgotten albums is the best part ot the game.

Of the two albums released in 2006 by diminutive ladies from London, it is easy to argue that this is superior, but I like the other one better. By a rough calculation, we'll be ranking those tracks in 22 years time!

It's amazing how "Rehab" did great during the last AMF Song poll, but here, "Back to Black" is kicking its ass (did it even make the top 1000 last time?).
