I was a former sprocle addict, but then I played most of the interest games (and all of the good music ones). Thank you so much for making that.
You got 180 out of 200 the 200 most recommended albums of all time (according to acclaimedmusic.net).
Ran out of time for some, but there were about 10 that I just would of never guessed.
I only got 98.
Wow, that was fun. I got 177. I should have gotten 179, but I mistyped the Sex Pistols and Aretha album titles and then gave up on them. Most of the others would have been impossible even with unlimited time.
Got 'em all. Not sure if I'm necessarily proud of that.
117. Straight after work probably wasn't the best time to do it, my mind just went blank.
178. The ones I missed were:
"After the Gold Rush"
"There's a Riot Going On"
"Tonight's the Night"
"Every Picture Tells a Story"
"Five Leaves Left"
"Sweetheart of the Rodeo"
"Master of Puppets"
"A Hard Day's Night"
"The Harder They Come"
A little embarrased I missed "In Rainbows" and the Nick Drake. Some of the others (JaMC and T. Rex) I could see the album artwork but couldn't think of the name.
165. Probably would have gotten more if time hadn't run out, but a few I wouldn't have ever gotten.
172. would have got them all if i had unlimited time. missed things like "debut", and "ramones"... i carry a list of the top 400 albums around with me at all times and go through it every time i enter a record store. i'm pretty familiar with the titles.
169 - and there were a few I would have gotten with more time, but the titles just didn't come to me.
my memory is failing me
too many times I was saying to myself : what's the name of this album ??
I have created a quiz with the top 100 of the 2000s, I will do the same with all the decades (maybe top 200 for the 60s).
Here it is
132 for all time, 94 for 00s (declared with three minutes to go)
Finished the top 100 of the 2000's with 6:25 to spare. Great game!
And here come the 90s
I only got 82 of the 00s, I had to leave my computer with 7 minutes left, and there were around 10 that I was never going to spell off-hand correctly.
84 for the 90s, 89 for the 00s, 183 of the T 200.
Spelling and recall was the hardest part. I was listening to Paul's Boutique as I was taking the T200 quiz and had trouble remembering what it was called
I got 182. And there are a few I missed because I couldn't figure out the spelling. I tried 2 x's for Speakerboxxx, I forgot the apostraphe in Freewheelin', I spelled Endtrocuing 'Entroducing', and I spelled Mathers 'Matters'.
I got 108. I could have gotten more if I hadn't run out of time (classic excuse) but I completely forgot Let it Bleed and There's a Riot Goin' On, two albums I love.
Edit: I finshed the RS top 100 songs one in ten minute flat (in order). I'm not sure if this is because i'm a nerd of becuase I have the list drilled into my from listening to in every morning for the past year and a half.
Here's a quiz i made of the top song by year.
