AMF All Time Artists List 2019 - Results

Post by TheLastEnemy » Tue Jul 02, 2019 3:18 pm

Welcome everyone to the fifth edition of the AMF All Time Artists List. I received lists from 59 people - almost as many as last time this poll was run in 2016. So big thanks to all the following (in alphabetical order) for their lists:

Akhenaten
andy1010
andyramones1234
Arcadefire
bleupanda
bonnielaurel
Brad

Chris K.

As lists were expanded to 200 entries, it was inevitable that more artists received votes than ever before - a total of 2254. Therefore there is very little to choose between the artists lower down the list. An artist ranked number 1 on one list but not on anyone else's would appear just outside the top 400.

The method used to calculate scores is much the same as last time this poll was run, but having longer lists means that the scores are not really comparable. The rankings are, however, and I will include previous rankings for the whole of the top 500, and previous rankings from all polls for the top 100. The full spreadsheet will be available after all the artists have been revealed.

I hope you enjoy the roll-out, which will start later today!

Glad to see my vote helped Sinéad O'Connor, Suzanne Vega, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Randy Newman and Charles Aznavour to get a spot.

It's sometimes interesting to see which artists haven't been here before. This is really the first appearance of Alice Cooper, James Blake, The War On Drugs, Bessie Smith, Bill Withers and Charles Aznavour?

Also curious that R. Kelly makes his debut in this list after the extreme scandals that have plagued him in the past few years. It seems like AM members don't let such things cloud their judgement of his music; at least not everyone does.

Glad to see Carl Perkins reappear, one of my favorites of the era.

Woohoo, yay and hurrah for the Polyphonic Spree, Elbow, Hooverphonic, the Sisters Of Mercy, the Wonder Stuff, the Waterboys & Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine!!!
I was faced with a choice at a difficult age. Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage? But in the back of my head I heard distant feet. Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat.

Gaslight Anthem made it, presumably on the back on me alone. Excellent!

Glad I helped The Fratellis and The Polyphonic Spree.

Again a lot of artists that are NEW or RE that just make me do a double take: these weren't in last time? I'm really curious what was in their place and what fell off.

I actually had to look up The Beautiful South. Never heard of them before.

Good to see Laura Marling return. My high ranking of her must have certainly helped.

These will all probably land on my (too late to make it this time) list. The most pleasant surprise is Larry Norman, a decided favourite of mine.

Surprised to see most of these had dropped off before but glad they're here. First Aid Kit would probably not make my list as they are still quite new to me but I've liked what I've heard so far.

Trying to think of people with great 2017-2018 albums not popular before. Perfume Genius maybe?

Wait, scratch that, Robyn was in the top 500 last time. In that case, I think it will be an older artists who nobody realized didn’t make it last time.

Or a pop oriented artist benefiting from shifting board preferences. Did Beyonce make top 500 last time?

Edit: Yeah, she was top 200 even.

Still, I think it's probably either a rap or indie group with a big album in the last three years, or it's a current pop artist.

Edit again: The more I think about it, Ariana Grande seems plausible.

Didn’t expect Slowdive.

Big drop for TVOTR.

Even without checking it seems obvious that the previous ranking of TV on the Radio at 18 is nonsense. I don't think they could have reached that spot even at their most popular.

I hoped my top 10 position for Joanne Newsom would carry her into the top 100 (as I didn't vote last time), but she dropped 56 places. Aw. It's time she releases a new album to set that right again.

That jump for Iron Maiden, though.

Also interesting, despite much movement in the list as a whole, only one act from the previous top 100 has appeared and barely any that is even close to it has shown it's face. So, probably the top 100/ 150 will be somewhat close to three years ago.

This might be the strangest poll we run. There is such little logic to the relative placement between certain artists, especially considering how they do on our all-time songs and albums polls. For example, The Zombies consistently place one top-50 album and multiple top-200 songs every time we hold those polls. Yet here they place below Tina Turner, the Cranberries, and Eric Clapton? Janelle Monae just had our forum's AOTY and SOTY for 2018 - yet she only moves up two spots and places below Amy Winehouse, Phil Collins, and Dire Straits? It would be interesting to compare the results of this poll to a formula-based approach using our other two AT polls. This one seems to favor artists who have very high mainstream name recognition over artists who are broadly liked, but maybe not intensely loved, on the forum. (Btw, not trying to call out the voters of any of the artists I mentioned.)

Excellent showing for Robyn!!! Also pleased by the upward movement for Pet Shop Boys!
