Re: Work To Harold

I see Village Voice positions below the top 50 are in the spreadsheet- but only the top 50 get added to AM, correct? I'm pretty sure, just clarifying. Thanks- and thanks Harold for the continued updates. :)

Re: Work To Harold

Jr, that's correct.


Here's another update from Harold, including

USA: Passion of the Weiss, The Silent Ballet
Canada: La Presse
UK: Mixmag, The Milk Factory
France: PopNews, Chroniques Electroniques, AlbumRock
Poland: Screenagers
Sweden: Dagensskiva

Harold, I forgot to upload yesterday. Sorry.

Re: EOY Albums 2011: Update thread

I have added one new list to the spreadsheet since the last upload, a top ten from Belgium's Knack. I'm fully prepared to send Henrik this last update and call it a day, unless anyone has any last-minute additions. Thanks again to everyone who's contributed lists, links, and transcriptions. This has been exhausting (at times) but great fun.

If you can wait some days, I know the "Top des Blogueurs" will come soon (some days).

I went to the TdB website and did a FreeTranslation of the most recent post, from November. FT isn't exactly 100% reliable, but it looks like the folks behind the site decided to shut things down and not compile a list for 2011. If someone could confirm this, that would be great. Thanks!

Yes but if you go here : http://classementdesblogueurs.fr/WordPress3/2012/01/25/cdb-2011-episode-42/
you can see the "classement des blogueurs". They continue there list and the final result will be made next week I think.
They just stop the blog in the currently form.

I guess the big question after we've had our own poll is: Why wasn't PJ's album the most acclaimed in the US? (And why didn't she do better in the songs lists?)
