Re: VIBE's Records That Defined An Era

I forgot portishead's dummy on the last section.

do you want the jazz and reggae lists, or would you not count vibe as a source for those genres?

Re: VIBE's Records That Defined An Era

Yes, I definitely want to include those albums as well. If they include jazz and reggae in the list, they by definition (to at least some extent) cover these genres.

Thanks!

Thanks jess!

Re: VIBE's Records That Defined An Era

It seems they have their favorite in each category at the top and the rest in chronological order, so should the top picks get a higher weight than the rest?
