Is this AM-eligible, or do new artists lists still have to be top 50? :P

While I don't particularly like 'Born in the USA', I think it should still be on this list...

And 'Born to Run' should absolutely be number one IMO...

"Born in the USA" isn't one of my favorites among his hits. But, based on its AM ranking, you're right. :mrgreen:

I think it could be eligible, as 30 is closer to 50 than 10...geometrically. :D

More seriously, I think it should be eligible because there are 17 people behind the list and perhaps also because there are no other BS lists at AM.

Sounds good to me. :) By the way- I inquired in the "June Update" thread in the forum how the update was coming along. :P

Henrik, what is the exact rule about "the best of artist" lists? I know quite a few such lists, but I'm not sure if they are eligible.

I'm not Henrik, but there have been lists as short as 10 that are included. Henrik decided to keep those in, but for future lists, upped the criteria (looks like it's at least 30 now?) Would have to be a multi-critic list, unless it's by someone real notable in the music criticism world, and then meet the Alexa criteria.

Henrik could expand and clarify. :)
