Haven't seen this hip-hop-oriented site on AM before. Is this top 10 eligible for the spreadsheet?
They also have a songs list here
It seems to meet all the eligibility criteria, and it's a hip-hop focused website that released a hip-hop list so I guess it'll fall under genre-specific. I think Henrik said those wouldn't go into your spreadsheet?
Henrik, what say you?
Henrik, I need to ask about this one, too. It's compiled by the staff of a record label (with their own artists omitted from consideration). Eligible?
Harold, I think both these lists are eligible, although Austin Town Hall's staff info "We have a staff. Small. But handsome. Staff bios coming soon." is not completely satisfying.
Henrik, I need eligibility verdicts on the following new submissions:
I already know the Zundfunk list from Germany is eligible, as its EOY lists have previously appeared on AM. Thanks in advance!
Difficult decisions again. Here are my suggestions, which could be discussed.
Perhaps not eligible. The music section of the Swedish Metro is quite tiny compared with the biggest Swedish newspapers. Maybe it's different in the UK? It's not really a top 10 of the '00s but a "top album by year" feature, which also gives it a slightly lower credibility.
If someone can tell me that this site/list is made by a larger group of people then it's eligible. Until then, it's not.
Not eligible, I think. Another independent university magazine that would have an OK Alexa if it had been a music-only publication, but it's not.
From the site "Fast 'n' Bulbous", only one guy, but I've seen him as a reference on the site.
To quote Henrik:
Just did a quick check on AM and it seems that his all-time list is in fact included. His '90s list is not though, so I agree: Henrik?
Edit: And what would that mean for his year-lists? I love the fact that his 90s lists perfectly match with whatever from the 90s is in his all-time list. The same goes for his year lists matching his decade/all-time lists, so again I wonder if this wouldn't unfairly give the highest albums on his list points three times (all-time, decade and year).
Edit #2: His all-time list also gets updated still, and most (probably all except for the top 15 or 20) rankings on AM aren't correct anymore.
Edit #3: His ratings of the various albums don't seem to be included at all, whereas the they are for the likes of Strong/Christgau/etc. Maybe it would be fairest to only include his ratings and none of his lists?
Sorry about this rant.
A single critic should never be counted twice and in the case of Fast'n'bulbous I have included his alltime list (which needs to be updated at AM) so I don't want to add the '00s list as well. Including his ratings would probably be the best thing, but that would take A LOT of time, which I don't have. But if someone is interested in collecting all the ratings for me, I will include them of course.
You may be right about the list being better than the ratings. However, that would mean we miss ratings on about 5000 albums. Maybe the year-lists would be better in that respect, although they would also be a lot more work.
By the way, could you have a look at the Silent Ballet topic for its eligibility?
Would this list be eligible? It's compiled from the staff of the website, and whilst it might be called a punk website the list also includes a lot of other genres and bands (such as Animal Collective etc.)
They've also made lists of the year from 2005, in case it is eligible
Eligible. Harold, are you still reading this thread?
Nah, there isn't. I guess this thread is just being used for all eligibility questions.
