Just wondering: would the entry on "33 discs without which one cannot live" about Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Cole Porter Songbook be considered a tie between the two volumes, or is it just the first one?

Ella Fitzgerald's songbooks on AM are all featured as a common entry for both volumes anyway. Just give the vote to the first volume :)

Sorry I'm taking so long - I had added the 33 Albums list and a bunch of Boombox lists before Excel got blippy and unsaved the changes, so I just need to add them all back, add a few more, and then I'll be set. I'll try to have it all done by early next week.

Added some more before I got burnt out. Hoping someone adds the Classic Rock '70s list and the assorted UCR lists.
What I added was:
All the Diffuser lists
Boombox - Top 25 Rap Albums of 1996
Boombox - Top 25 Rap Albums of 1991
Boombox - 50 Greatest Alternative Hip-Hop Albums of All Time
Treble - Best of '60s Project
Assante Ernesto & Castaldo Gino - 33 discs without which one can not live

Somewhat tiresome, right? :) I'll take it from here, and start with adding that Chabuca Granda album.

StevieFan13 I think I've got mixed news for you :?

If you rewind to the second page of this thread, you'll see that a first Excel spreadsheet was already filled in, and Henrik also mentions near the end of the second page that he added some lists by himself on his end. This includes the Anthony Fantano/The Needle Drop list and the Treble Best of '60s one, as well as the Ultimate Classic Rock & Classic Rock decades lists. JR's summary isn't up to date with these because they have not yet been added to the website; to know exactly the lists that still need to be added you have to substract those from this first spreadsheet and those listed by Henrik in his message on the second page of this thread.

I'm truly sorry about this. At least the lists made by acclaimed artists, Diffuser, BoomBox and 33 albums were OK.

The Diffuser and Boombox ones were the real pains in the ass, so at least the rest wasn't for nothing. I'll be sure to check next time.

And only two of the UCR lists (the 60s and 70s ones) were added by Henrik. I was mostly thinking of the insane amount of top 10s. Maybe I'll get to that next (after a friggin' nap).

Are all those top 10s eligible though? Henrik would need to confirm that. As for the 80s and 90s lists, they are in the first spreadsheet from this thread I talked to you about.

Please don't work on the current spreadsheet anymore though; as I told you, I took it back and started working on it on my end. Henrik doesn't want two people working on it simultaneously :)

They were on the summary of lists to be added. I think they were all declared eligible. And yeah, I wasn't going to work on it now.

No, I indeed link to the AM forums threads :) And I may indeed try to add the lists mentioned by panam, but I think I may need help - in my first round of work, I tried to add the list for Dominican music and had to give up because of the scarcity of data. Merengue is not well-documented online, on Discogs, RYM or elsewhere.

Yeah, that's what did in the Israeli list as well. Also: are you going to add the UCR top 10s? Or should I add them after you finish? It's a lot of busywork, but I'm pretty sure most of the albums are already there, though I'll gladly handle them if you don't want to.

I'll see in due time for these, but I don't think they are the ones that would give most difficulties anyway ;)

Well, that'll be it for me. Here are the lists I added:

Rock en las Américas encuesta especializada 2010-2014 (2014)
50 discos de música peruana que dan muestra de nuestra diversidad cultural (2015)
35 discos imprescindibles del rock venezolano, de acuerdo a selección publicada por revista Ladosis, número 19 (noviembre - diciembre 2011)
Los 25 mejores discos colombianos de los últimos 25 años según la revista Semana (2007)
100 álbumes esenciales de la música dominicana (2013)
100 Discos Esencial del Rock Mexicano
Complex: The 100 Best Albums of the 2000s (2011)
Empire - The Greatest Movie Soundtracks: A Celebration
The Guardian (UK) - The 50 Albums That Changed Music (2006)
ShortList: The 50 Coolest Albums Ever
Flavorwire: The 50 Essential Women-in-Music Albums (2009)
Classic Rock (UK): The 20 Albums That Changed the Course of Rock 'n' Roll (2016)
Team Rock: Classic Rock: Essential LPs (2015)
Giles Oakley (UK) - The Devil's Music: A History of The Blues - Selected Discography (1997)
Héctor Ángel Benedetti - 101 tango albums for your discotheque (2011)
Benoît Sabatier: Nous sommes jeunes, nous sommes fiers (2007)
Éric Smets: The punk movement 1976-1978 100 of the best albums (2014)
Jérôme Alberola - Hard rock anthology: of tears, noise and fury (2008)
Robin Ferre, Igor Thiriez & Mathieu Yassef - Riff Story: from Hard Rock to Heavy Metal (2010)
Damien Chaney, Antoine Petite & Ludovic Chaney - Inventory of extreme musics - essential albums from half a century of hard rock, metal, punk, hardcore & co. transgression (2011)

Comments: Moonbeam will be pleased to learn there's finally a Kim Wilde album in the spreadsheet! However, it's nowhere near having enough points to appear on the website...

Slight amendments to what I said last time: StevieFan13, you shouldn't be too worried for Queen's Jazz and News of the World ;) If I'm correct, they now have enough points to make decent bubblers, if not more. Other albums with interesting performances: Queen I, Innuendo, Live Killers and Live at Wembley '86.

For Nightwish and Evanescence, things are starting to get really interesting. Within Temptation have progressed a bit as well, although I think they'll need an extra push if they are to appear on the website.

If StevieFan13 or anyone else works on it after me, please note that the Albumrock lists at the beginning of JR's summary have actually been retconned as ineligible (although I don't remember in which topic exactly, it just struck me when I looked at the summary the other day). It's probable that I won't be working anymore on this from now on; it took some but I'm finally fed up with this work :scared-shocked:

Great work, Pierre! Yeah, you need a break. I might send you a PM with albums I want to add so I can make sure they haven't been added already. It'll probably be my last go-around as well.

Glad to see Queen doing so well! I'll take bubblers, as long as they're there, man.

About Bloque, there are two bands

A Spanish progressive rock band from the 70s
A Colombian Latin alternative/fusion band from the 90s

No relation between them, just the name. Actually, the Colombian band was originally named Bloque de Busqueda but when they released the same album abroad they shorten the name.

I've checked quickly the other lists already added by Henrik while I was adding the aforementioned ones but I've been unable to determine which Bloque already had a self-titled album in the spreadsheet. Henrik will have to check this on his end...

Tentative list of lists I'm adding (the first four are done, the fifth is almost done, and the rest I'll get to ASAP)
Consequence of Sound - Masterpiece Reviews
CTV News - The 25 Best Canadian Albums of the 2000s
The Boombox - Top 20 Hip-Hop Albums of All Time
Vinyl Me, Please - 52 Best Albums to Own on Vinyl
Yediot Arohnot - The 100 Best Israeli Albums Before '89
Yediot Arohnot - The Best Israeli Albums (FYI, the names on the Radio Hazak page aren't perfect translations. On the sheet, I tried to include a) the most popular phonetic spellings of the artists' names, or the ones that look closest to the Hebrew [I've seen many different spellings for Tzvika Pik, for instance], b) phonetic translations of album names that are only in Hebrew, and c) hybridized names for artists/albums that are listed on the sleeve in both Hebrew and English [The High Windows, for example]. Hope that makes things clear!)
Ultimate Classic Rock - The Best Classic Rock Album of Each Year Since 1966
Ultimate Classic Rock - various year lists
Loudwire - The Best Metal Album of Each Year Since 1970
Loudwire - The Best Hard Rock Album of Each Year Since 1970
Volume - Making Music in Aotorea (New Zealand): 185 Vinyl Albums
Panamerika - 26 Best Albums of the 2000s
Consequence of Sound - Top 50 Albums of 1997
The Blues - The 20 Greatest British Blues Albums: 1960-1966
The Radio X year lists
Pigeons and Planes - The Best Albums in Pigeons and Planes History
Pigeons and Planes - The 10 Most Influential Albums Turning 10 This Year
The Spectrum Culture lists
The Boot - Top 10 Country Music Albums of the 2000s
The Boot - 10 Essential Albums for Your Country Music Education
Billboard - All 88 Diamond-Certified Albums from Worst to Best
VH1/MTV Base/MTV 2 - The 100 Greatest Albums of All Time of the MTV Generation
Rolling Stone - The 25 Greatest Movie Soundtracks of All Time
Paste - The 50 Best Movie Soundtracks
NME - 61 of the Greatest Film Soundtracks Ever
Jason Paul Preston - 111 Best Albums of the 2000s/111 Next Best Albums of the 2000s
Ben Westhoff: Dirty South: OutKast, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, and the Southern Rappers etc. - Recommended listening
XXL - 30 Albums to Make You Appreciate Hip-Hop

So yeah...this'll take a while. If you can think of any other recent album lists that could stand to be added, let me know.

Checking what you and Pierre have added, looks like I'm in the clear.

Question: the BBC "Classic Albums" series is technically eligible, but it hasn't been approved yet. Should I add it anyway?

Quoting myself from the other thread:

Pierre wrote:What's the name of the spreadsheet? I went back far enough to see that a bunch of lists I was about to add were already added (the Cachin lists in particular) but I don't know which spreadsheet has the 825 albums.

It's one of the first spreadsheets in the Help Wanted! thread. Look here:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3670&start=50#p58644

The spreadsheet is titled: Acclaimed Music_Incomplete Album Lists_HW.xls

OK, so a few lists are out of the rotation now. Reeeaallyyy wish I had known that the Australian albums list had been added before I added it.

I was aware of this one. Back when I was working on this, I gave up on adding it because I found it too massive and intimidating.

I'd add it if I didn't have so much to work on already. Maybe either I or Pierre will add it later on (or you can add it before Pierre takes over and after I upload my updates).

Hehe..i was trying to guess the reason why you consider intimidating. There's an xls file, it helps a lot to adding to the database or maybe, I didn't understood what you are trying to say ;) pardon my french

It doesn't help that it's an .xls file, not at all. When I add an entry to the spreadsheet, I check whether the album exists under that title, whether it's a compilation under the AM criteria, even the release date if it's featured to see if it's the correct album or if an error is possible. So you see, I do find it difficult because it's 300 albums long and from a country which music scene I'm not familiar with and which potential sources might be in Portuguese, a language I don't have a mastery of :P That's why I gave up on it last time.

Ideally, I'll try to have a few more lists added by the start of next week. It's been hard keeping up, and I'm almost positive I won't be able to add all the lists I've wanted to add out of pure fatigue, but I'll add a few more and then break for a while. Pierre or panam or whoever wants to have a whack at it might be able to add some.

That's fine, as long as you added the Israeli ones :) I'll take over from here as planned.

I'll get to them next. I'm handling the Rock FM list, then the Israeli albums, then maybe a couple more (maybe Sputnikmusic or the Making Music in Aotorea list). In any case, I'll post the lists I had planned to add but didn't when I upload what I did.

He said he's almost done with most of what he planned to add to the spreadsheet, but he's also giving up on some because he's tired of working on it. Stevie doesn't plan to add the 300 Brazilian albums list. Once he posts the spreadsheet, I'll take it and I will try to add the Brazilian albums list.
