The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Welcome to the voting thread for the AMF's 4th ever All-Time Albums poll! Results for our last list back in 2009 can be found here. Here are the rules:

Voting: Anyone can vote, regardless of whether they've posted a list on the forum before. We always enjoy lists from newcomers.

You must vote for at least 50 albums. While only your top 200 will receive points, you are encouraged to post as many albums as you like! Also, lists must be ordered.

This year, voting will be done exclusively by posting lists in this thread. Most of us would agree that seeing everyone's individual lists are the highlight of all of our forum polls, so I hope everyone is okay with this. If you'd like to be nice and send me a spreadsheet with your list to make tabulating easier, my email is jgovatos3@gmail.com.

Also, if you vote well before the deadline, you can make changes to your list if you want. I won't start compiling for a while.

Eligibility: I'm going to use the same eligibility guidelines Henrik uses for the AM list. No EPs, compliations, greatest hits, singles, etc. If you have a question about whether something is eligible, ask and I'll tell you. All that being said, I'm going to be pretty lenient in terms of allowing things that won't affect the overall results. Translation: if you want to vote for a classical composition or an obscure album that ambiguously may or may not be a compilation, go ahead. It's not hurting anyone.

Deadline: This is likely to change, but for now I'll set a temporary deadline of September 18, 2011. Two months should be plenty of time to compile your lists.

And with all that voting has officially begun. I expect a strong turnout for this poll.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Thanks for making the deadline in September. It gives me lots of time to listen and listen and listen to all the albums I want to vote for.

Any idea on what formula will be used?

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I knew I'd forget to put something in the initial post. The formula will be the same one I used for the songs poll, which I believe is also the same formula used in the last album poll:

200*(1+50)/(position+50)

While I'm at it, I'd like to remind everyone to post their lists in an easy-to-tabulate format if they're not sending a spreadsheet. Something like:

Rank | Artist | Album

or

Rank - Artist - Album

would be helpful. Thanks.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

@ Nassim I have no preference as far as that goes.

@ Billadama I was hoping someone would post a list today to get this rolling. The biggest surprise in yours was Tubular Bells in the top 20; I've never seen you talk about that album before.

Awesome, pauldrach. I love that album.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I want to make an argument for eligibility.

I think compilations of singles that all came out around the same time and did not appear on an album should count.

This would include Elvis Presley - Sun Sessions and Robert Johnson - King Of The Delta Blues.

It seems a bit strange that Chuck Berry Is On Top is eligible and these two are not.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

My tastes have changed quite a bit in the past year and I am surprising myself with the changes I'm making to the last time I looked at my favorites. So much so that I'm going to be changing a lot of ratings on RYM.

I would like to hear others' views on this. I think the Robert Johnson comp should be eligible since it's literally his only album.

But if I permit all albums of this type, wouldn't things like Substance, Singles Going Steady, and Hatful of Hollow be included? I definitely don't think they should because then you might as well permit all comps.

By the way, unless anyone objects Beta Band's 3 EP's and Disco Inferno's 5 EP's are eligible.

Love the idea of the 5 EP's getting in! Also, wouldn't mind if "Louder Than Bombs" could be included myself

And my working list

I'm with you on this Jackson. I think a way of looking at it is if any of the tracks were otherwise included on contemperaneous albums, the compilation should not be included.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Quote: sonofsamiam
I think a way of looking at it is if any of the tracks were otherwise included on contemperaneous albums, the compilation should not be included.


That would leave out The Sun Sessions.

But I'm definitely in favor of including Robert Johnson's sides. I'm not even gonna ask about my favorite Leadbelly album , the ill-named "Huddie Ledbetter's Best", consisting of a dozen songs recorded in one session in LA, 1944. But as nobody else is gonna vote for it, I don't really care whereas RJ could be on a few lists.

Jackson, do you need dates ? I can provide that in the definitive list, and like sonofsamian, I'll send you an excel file

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Sonofsamiam's list: A lesson in Cool. Very little to add to.

I want to make an argument for eligibility.

I think compilations of singles that all came out around the same time and did not appear on an album should count.

This would include Elvis Presley - Sun Sessions and Robert Johnson - King Of The Delta Blues.

It seems a bit strange that Chuck Berry Is On Top is eligible and these two are not.


I would like to hear others' views on this. I think the Robert Johnson comp should be eligible since it's literally his only album.

But if I permit all albums of this type, wouldn't things like Substance, Singles Going Steady, and Hatful of Hollow be included? I definitely don't think they should because then you might as well permit all comps.

By the way, unless anyone objects Beta Band's 3 EP's and Disco Inferno's 5 EP's are eligible.


I'm with you on this Jackson. I think a way of looking at it is if any of the tracks were otherwise included on contemperaneous albums, the compilation should not be included.



I don't know. I think it would be better if we keep to the big list rules. All of the other forum polls didn't include these albums.

That disqualifies Singles Going Steady,Louder Than Bombs(if you consider that a couple of the tracks had already appeared on Hatful Of Hollow). Not sure what the case would be with New Order-Substance(a couple of the tracks appeared on their albums in different versions) and Hatful of Hollow(several songs from their debut on it,but all are alternate versions). She's Lost Control (Atmosphere B Side) on Joy Division - Substance 1977-80 is different to the original as well...

Amazing. I was wondering how long you'd go; 600 gives you the early lead for longest list unless Mindrocker decides to show off and go for 1,000 (just kidding Mindrocker, I'd love to see a massive list from you).

I noticed your top 10 was pretty familiar, but there was a lot of turnover below. I never knew you liked The Soft Bulletin and Future Days so much, and I haven't heard of some of those albums in the 40s or Krzysztof Penderecki up at 11.

One of the funny things about such a long list is seeing albums like Loveless, The VU & Nico, and London Calling down around 400.

Thanks for the participation to everyone so far. I hope we can get over 50 lists.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Jackson, you can count on a list from me as well, but not before September. Favourite albums, that I haven't heard for a couple of years, I should relisten to first.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I will try to listen to as many albums as possible that I haven't heard on these all-time lists as they come in. I've started with sonofsamiam's big one (there are plenty on there I haven't heard). I'm working my way up from #600 and am currently on #430, and I suddenly had an impulse to do a quick post just to say again how much I love this forum and the scope and variety of good music the people on here have introduced me to.

There are in fact 1145 albums in my Excel mother list. They are the 1145 albums i've heard since july 2007, when I started rating everything I heard. So this list is based on ratings. That's why it is not a cosmetic list, not a work of art, but the result of a rather complex calculation, like the AM 3000. I there happens to be 3 brassens and 3 Springsteen albums in the top 20, so be it

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

For some reason i can't edit my post. The first album I rated was Exile On main St back in 2007 and the last one was Coles Corner by Richard Hawley (but Dimanche à Bamako and Z by My M Jacket are waiting for rating and ranking). My list is much less varied and idiosyncratic than sonofsamian's or Mindrocker's (I can't compete with such masters)but I'm kinda proud of it.
A lot of music I listen to isn't on that list : music from before 1950 that was not included on real albums.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Mine is also based on complex calculations, but not based on ratings.

It's based on comparisons. Every so often, I give a list of, say, 6-8 albums. It uses several hundred of these comparisons, and puts them together into a master list.

I figure, I'm better at figuring out which I liked best out of a few albums I just listened to than I am at comparing an album I just heard to one I haven't heard for months.

It also weights more recent ratings higher than older ratings.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I just think to myself, "Which album do I like more?" That's probably why I do so much tweaking!

At least someone who's (still) sane in this forum !!

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Fred, I always enjoy your lists. Rock Bottom is doing really well so far.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

The reason for my method is that I find I'm never happy with lists I just throw together from memory. I keep tweaking things up and down, remembering I left things out, etc. It's a lot easier for me to listen to two albums and say 'I enjoyed this one more' than it is to remember whether I like an album I last heard two months ago more than an album I last heard a year ago.

But, the original reason to have a program wasn't to make lists, it was to prevent me from accidentally forgetting about albums I enjoyed.

Of course, one issue is that if I dislike an album on one listen, then like it a lot on the next listen, it can push up albums that beat it the first time, and push down albums that lost to it the second time. For instance, I just put in: Betty Davis - They Say I'm Different > The Who - Quadrophenia.

The result:
Betty Davis: #440 - #370
The Who: #154 - #374

They should probably both have ended up higher than that.

Amazing. I was wondering how long you'd go; 600 gives you the early lead for longest list unless Mindrocker decides to show off and go for 1,000 (just kidding Mindrocker, I'd love to see a massive list from you).


Thanks Jackson! I'd love to see a Top 1000 from Mindrocker btw.

Quote: Jackson
I noticed your top 10 was pretty familiar, but there was a lot of turnover below. I never knew you liked The Soft Bulletin and Future Days so much, and I haven't heard of some of those albums in the 40s or Krzysztof Penderecki up at 11.


Yep, lots of movement throughout. Soft Bulletin was in my Top 40 in '99-'01 or so, and then I tired of it, plus Yoshimi disappointed me so it suffered from association. I dug it back out recently, and wow.

Future Days is the most consistently great Can album, love the vibe. Of course if Tago Mago were just tracks 1-4 it would be Top 20.

You've probably heard some Penderecki, for example in The Shining. It's some of the most simultaneously terrifying, fascinating, and moving music I've ever heard. Bad driving music, though. (Same for Ligeti.) Would love to comment on anything else you haven't heard yet too.

Quote: Jackson
One of the funny things about such a long list is seeing albums like Loveless, The VU & Nico, and London Calling down around 400.


Yeah, I know what you mean, but given the number of albums I had to cull from this, those all appearing means I still love 'em a lot. Just not as much, or I feel they have flaws. Either way, not all of the AM Top 200 made my list (not even close I think), so they're still standouts to me.


Looking forward to seeing more lists!!!

Same for me. It's like a game. you can't take it too seiously. And I like the fact that the result reflect my tastes like they are and not the way I want to show them (like how eclectic they are). Of course it lacks spontaneity, but the other big advantage is that your list is always ready.

BillAdama, I'm interested in your method. Does it apply to songs ? Maybe we should open a new thread about listing methods. the super geek thread.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Oh, and one more thing.

One piece of friendly and personal advice :

I think it's better not to limit yourself to a few albums by the same artist.
I know some people want to post varied lists, and prefer to give their chance to a maximum artists, but

1) it doesn't reflect your real tastes.

2) It increases vote spreading. Basically that's why the Beatles never win the albums poll, and Pet Sounds does so good (not that it's a bad album, it's in my own top 20). That doesn't mean I want the Fab 4 to win in the end, though...

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I often feel like (and this may just be perception) that when people advise not to be too eclectic and to not spread their votes, that they're taking a shot at eclectic lists and by happenstance the people who make them.

Let's not assume people's intent in list-making, please? For example, my list is very personal to my own tastes, and very much a reflection of both where I'm at now and where I've been. It definitely reflects my real tastes and not what I would like them to be or how I would like people to perceive them. (Otherwise, there would be no prog! )

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

sonofsamian, it was not meant for you !!! I really love your lists and I'm sure they reflect your personality.

Please don't take my words as a judgement or a comment on other people's actions; they are just my personal opinion. If anybody's feelings were hurt by my post, that was not intentional !!

I just meant that deliberately limiting the number of albums per artists (as some people do) can be conter-productive sometimes.

OK, totally understood Nicolas. I bring previous experience to the table too much probably, as I've had to defend my "eclectic" lists to others before, multiple times. It gets exhausting!

I agree totally about not limiting oneself -- just be totally sincere. And I think that's what you were saying.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Talking about listing methods ...

... I think, BillAdama, you mentioned a similar method about 3-4 years ago and even offered us a java program to manage that ...

... but lately I found a new way for me to listen, rate and order 5 songs per session. My drive to work is about 45 minutes and perfect to do those sessions (for those times that I'm driving alone, that is). I also use this at home. For the moment I am doing this with 5 songs from the same release year (I missed out on the 70s and 60s poll, so I first need a long time to catch up with you guys) but it can basically be done with any set of 5 songs. It does not have to be 5 either, but that amount works best for me for still be able to focus and compare the songs.

By doing multiple sessions and comparing the songs you find some kind of final order and based on how "annoying" or "pleasant" the songs are, the rating is added afterwards.

You probably have similar or better methods, just felt like sharing this with you.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I think we should open a thread to share our different methods.

"Rock Bottom", besides being damn good and clearly his best, also is the logical start of an artist, has a prehistory since Mr Wyatt was active before in other groups and has his best material. A winner.

I like Soft Machine's Third a lot too. Wyatt's song from that album, "Moon in June," is excellent and among the best I've heard from him. I am amazed that Wyatt not only continued to produce records into the last decade, but made highly critically acclaimed ones.

That being said, "Rock Bottom" is on another level and will make my top 20.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Jackson, could you give us your final decision about "compilations" if you have taken it ?

I'd like to know especially about the following albums

- Robert Johnson - King of the Delta Blues

- Elvis Presley - The Sun Sessions

- Leadbelly - Huddie Ledbetter's best (ill-named because featuring a Capitol 1944 session)

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Quote: Slick
It took me 2 months, but IT is finally ready to share before I end up tweeking it again.

1. Clash, The - London Calling (1979)
300. Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door (1979)


No Zappa?!

Just kidding. Great list!

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I'm loving all the love Led Zeppelin IV.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

It's all here. Can't believe I'm satisfied with this list. It has taken me 3 weeks (many many hours). The hardest part is fighting the urge to place something older at a higher position. The classics have had time to breathe, grow, and survive. Many recent releases have yet to garner the kind of obsessiveness that is required to sustain long term deployment in the classic album stratosphere. The most important lesson I've learned about myself in the compilation of this list, is that I'm most definitely a creature of the times. My list contain many entries released within the last 20 years, hell it was hard to fight off the urge to list 6 candidates from this year alone. Another pattern that I found interesting is the multiples of albums from one band that make this list. All of Radiohead except "Pablo Honey" make an appearance, as does much of the Animal Collective, Sufjan Stevens, and The Velvet Underground catalog. Anyhow I hope someone finds something interesting in this list. Enjoy.

Understatement of the month. Beautiful list.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Halley, I like your list, but I have a comment.

There seems to be a big gap between 1980 and 2004, with only a handful of albums from that period such as Grace, OK Computer, The Boy With The Arab Strap, almost all of them lower than 50.

Is it that you haven't heard as many albums from that period, or do you not like many of them?

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Hmmmmm

I never checked the release dates on the albums. I shuffled through my husbands CD/Vinyl collection and grab the ones that immediately stood out. It was also pretty scattered as far as ranking goes. The first 10 or so are in order, but I cant say with certainty that its flush. Generally speaking though I cant say I was all that big on the 80's. I love a lot of singer songwriter material. Some of my favorite artists created of tacky music in that decade. Loading up on synthesizers and drum machines. NOT A FAN. I love New Order though!

If I were to extend this list to 500, I'm sure it would even itself out. Perhaps if I have time.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I absolutely love that we have a husband and wife duo posting to AM now. My wife wouldn't touch a site like this with a ten foot pole.

I also love it! Tracy has posted here once, and I would love her to come back, but I think she's intimidated by all of the knowledge you guys all have.

Halley, I hope that you post here often! This place could always use more members, and people here are generally pretty friendly. I love that you've listed The Age of Adz as your #1 album.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Great lists guys, and thanks for reviving the thread.

@Kevin Plenty of great picks. Nice to see Slint and Tortoise in your top 50, neither of those albums seem as liked here as they are elsewhere. Also interesting to see lots of jazz and some more recent albums ranked highly.

Ah, that explains it. Have you heard some of the new wave stuff like Echo & The Bunnymen, XTC, etc? I highly recommend it.

We have plenty of Echo & The Bunneymen. The song from Donnie Darko comes to mind as an immediate favorite. "Rescue" from the Alligator album is great as well. We played it at our wedding.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed the list. I'll check in from time to time if I hear anything new and interesting.

As a matter of fact I'm really digging the new Handsome Furs album "Sound Kapital". My husband and I saw them open for Arcade Fire at Massey hall a few years back in support of Neon Bible. Been hooked ever since.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Just listening to Pine Box from the Scud Mountain Boys, I recommend it to you all. Here's a compilation of two fine tracks from that album:

I'd like to bump this thread, hoping for more lists in the coming week as we inch closer to the deadline.

Also, great list beefsupreme. You have one of the most identifiable and unique tastes on the board (very little from the 60s or 70s, lots of punk, alt-rock, and Wu-Tang-style rap).

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Nassim: I love how your list always gives exposure to modern classics like Perfect From Now On, Songs for the Deaf, etc. But I was wondering, is it that you haven't heard many albums from the 60s and 70s, or you just don't like them? There are plenty of gems from those years beyond the Rolling Stone-approved classics. Nice list though.

It's probably a mix of both.
On the one hand I would take the AM top 50 of the 00s or the 90s over those of the previous decades any given day, no competition for me. I like the modern sound and variety of music much more than an older aesthetic.
On the other hand I don't know much pre-punk albums which are not on AM top 500 if I did not have to listen to them for a special poll here (whether it's moderately acclaimed or decade polls) so I probably have missed some gems which would have become personal favorites.
On my top 500 songs list the repartition would not be much different I guess, just with more late 70s and 80s stuff. 77 to 88 was an amazing period in term of songs, but it lacks great albums in my opinion

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Like most of you, since the last time we did an all-time poll I've listened to tons 'n tons of music. But despite the many new discoveries, at the top of my all-time list very little has changed. To me it seemed a bit boring to just re-post my 2009 list, bar a few alterations. So, instead I've opted to concentrate on only one period: The eighties. In my view the '80s are still a somewhat underrated decade, apart from the 10-15 bands that usually get mentioned.
Not sure if I'm going against the rules with this list, it's after all an all-time poll thread. But if so, well, then consider these albums my all-time favorites of the moment ;)

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Quote: Mindrocker
Like most of you, since the last time we did an all-time poll I've listened to tons 'n tons of music. But despite the many new discoveries, at the top of my all-time list very little has changed. To me it seemed a bit boring to just re-post my 2009 list, bar a few alterations. So, instead I've opted to concentrate on only one period: The eighties. In my view the '80s are still a somewhat underrated decade, apart from the 10-15 bands that usually get mentioned.
Not sure if I'm going against the rules with this list, it's after all an all-time poll thread. But if so, well, then consider these albums my all-time favorites of the moment ;)




I definitely didn't expect that when I saw you had posted a list. I would like to see this list, but I think it would definitely be better if you posted a true all-time list, even if it is similar to your last outing (because, after all, it will still be different from everyone else's).

But it you want to stick with only this list, I won't necessarily exclude it.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

From what I understand it's only the 200 first albums that get points, right? So, the list is somewhat ok if only a few of your albums would have made your top 200.

But since you seem to have made SOME excursion into the 80s it seem probable you discovered a few gems that would have made it into a top 200 or even a top 100. I will check out your top albums and the list is therefore very pedagogical.

Every list is an illusion of real musical taste. What you don't want is what breaks the illusion...so for the illusion and the statistical significance, add a few, skip a few... Your effort is important! :)

42. Hideki Naganuma – Jet Set Radio Future Soundtrack (2002)


I like your list, it gives me the feeling we see music the same way, as different as our lists can be !
Anyway, I think I talked about it on the previous poll but I find the original Jet Set Radio soundtrack much better, the sequel has too many remixes for me !
Jet Set Radio Future improved the first game in every other aspects though (which says a lot since the first one was already one of my favorite game ever).

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Mindrocker, ironically your #1 album of the 80s was first released in 1975.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Technically you're right Henrik, although the 1986 version on 4AD was more like a remix of the original album.
I'm glad you made it to the bottom of the list!

I wish that more people in the world thought that a albums list including Magma, the Residents, Hawkwind, and Frank Zappa in the top 20 was 'boring.'



But the 80s list was really cool.

42. Hideki Naganuma – Jet Set Radio Future Soundtrack (2002)


I like your list, it gives me the feeling we see music the same way, as different as our lists can be !
Anyway, I think I talked about it on the previous poll but I find the original Jet Set Radio soundtrack much better, the sequel has too many remixes for me !
Jet Set Radio Future improved the first game in every other aspects though (which says a lot since the first one was already one of my favorite game ever).


Yeah, I kind of remember you asking this. Although the remixes in the JSRF album are the low points, I feel that the original songs (Funky Dealer, Oldes But Happies) are slightly better than Sweet Soul Brother and Let Mom Sleep. I also played JSRF first so it more nostalgia points for it.

There is no irony in it. I just don't see much fun in re-doing a list I fairly recently made. With my comment I meant next time I pass.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

I think in years to come I will look back fondly on 2011 as the year I finally experienced the thrill of listening to great pre-90s music. I’ve had more free time than usual this year and decided to broaden my musical horizon (and it needed broadening – crikey, at the start of the year I hadn’t even heard a Beatles album other than a compilation of their #1 hits). I focused mostly on albums in the AM top 3000 and the forum polls (particularly the excellent 50s and 60s polls). And I also discovered a few gems through other AMers’ individual lists.

A lot of the albums on my list will seem predictable and a bit boring to those of you who are getting tired of seeing those albums on so many lists, but I’ve only discovered their charms recently and I’m still in love. Brief comments on my top 10: I clearly think that the hype surrounding the Beatles is completely justified and that Bob Dylan’s musical and lyrical inventiveness is at its most astonishing on Blonde on Blonde. Every time I listen to Mingus Ah Um I’m amazed at how each composition has such a clear theme and is so intensely focused, yet the band’s playing also feels free and spontaneous at the same time. I love spending time in Ziggy Stardust’s beautiful, foreign world with its wonderful glam rock and spectacular theatre. Jacques Brel’s Ces gens-là has more personality than a whole country full of of people, and to my ears Remain in Light’s exciting blend of African rhythms, funky bass and electronics is the pinnacle of clever pop music. Rumours, on the other hand, is a pop album with real emotional weight that shows how pop music doesn’t have to be experimental or edgy to be compelling. And the two youngest albums in my top 10, OK Computer and Funeral, are prime examples of albums that make me appreciate the power of music, if that makes any sense.

Some of the albums in my top 200 have only had 2 or 3 spins, so my list will probably change as I listen to the albums again or discover other music. But these are the albums I love most at the moment…

Henry - I would appreciate it if you format this in way that I can import it into a spreadsheet (preferably like Dan M's list, which is the gold standard for easy to read and import formats). Thanks!

In other news, I'm likely to push the deadline back if more lists don't start coming soon. I will need time to tabulate anyway, so it works out.

Re: The 4th AMF All-Time Albums Poll Voting Thread

Jackson,

I'm surprised by the weak number of lists so far. Maybe people wait for the last days to post their lists ? But there might be another reason.

I think you should allow people to send you their lists without posting in the forum. I think you'd get more lists. When I managed the poll 2 years ago I got plenty of lists from people who had never posted and might be reluctant to publish their lists here. BUt that's only a suggestion
