Shinichi Atobe - Heat

This is missing in the 2018 section :mrgreen:

Oh, and I copiled three electronic albums lists of the decade, namely DJ MAG, MIXMAG & RESIDENT ADVISOR. Have a look at the spreadsheet and let me know what you think. Is there any other publications I could add...?

Zoinks! Thanks very much for pointing that out, that website was not an easy one to load up and stick around with the amount of computer freezing it comes with and the list being unranked and spread apart certainly made keeping tracks harder. :angry-banghead:

I checked the spreadsheet and I got quite giddy with it. It's a very exciting scoreboard for the electronics and also highlights how the three of these list have a handful of albums in common. Although just slightly confused at the part were some albums earned 1,000 point both from DJ Mag and Resident Advisor but still remain with 1,000 in total, I couldn't quite work that bit out.

I got 2 question: 1. What was the strategy for the albums that managed to earn a singular 2,000 points in the Resident Advisor section and 2. How well do you think the albums with 4,000 points will do in the next update? Do reckon 4,000 points is enough for Sophie to prevent Cardi B from getting past her in the 2018 album list?

Lastly, any other publication you ask? I think this one from Billboard is a brilliant companion: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news ... 0s-top-40/ :mrgreen:

Thanks Cicice for your encouraging feedback! I checked the spreadlist and realized that some calculations were wrong :?
Sorry about that!
I will thus include the new spreadsheet in this reply and delete the previous one. Oh, and I added an extra Top 69 overall list for fun. As you noticed they are ranked by points order and then by alphabetical order of the artists' names. Concerning the choices, well, I focused on these 3 major publications to make things simpler. BILLBOARD has got a more EDM focused list. What astonished me the most is to see no trace whatsoever of RANDOM ACCESS MEMORIES for example or other critic's favourites. I suggest you a few other lists that are mentionning all these missing albums. The REDDIT list was voted froms thousands of fans around the globe and is quite authoritative.

Cheers O.M and thanks for the pun based on a 90s throwback ;) I'll find the time to check them out within this week and shall feed you right back, sounds fun to me too. I'm amazed Random Access Memories didn't make it either - whenever I see many other decade or electronic dance list, Random Access Memories and This Is Happening always makes the most frequent entry, their like the 2010s siamese bum buddies together, the secondary most entrance I'm noticing are the two evil electric-sisters: Body Talk and Visions.

In my opinion for the next update, I think This Is Happening has a chance of cracking in the 2010s Top 10 or sitting outside #11, heck it might even nick the 2nd spot from The Suburbs in 2010 whilst Random Access Memories will end up in the mid or the higher Top 15.
