Re: Rating changes (Allmusic, Scaruffi, etc.) - Update 2017

Happy for 'Downward Spiral' fans. Music critics from around Illinois and Michigan (like those at AllMusic and Pitchfork) often came across as being weary of the record. It's good to see them finally coming around to it. They also seem to be softening up to 'The Fragile' too. It looks like the new r...

Re: Rating changes (Allmusic, Scaruffi, etc.) - Update 2017

Not sure when this happened, but the entire Nine Inch Nails discography has been shaken up at AllMusic: https://www.allmusic.com/artist/nine-inch-nails-mn0000351733/discography Pretty Hate Machine - still 5 Downward Spiral - now 5 (used to be 4) The Fragile - now 4 (used to be 3) And All That Could ...

Re: Rating changes (Allmusic, Metacritic, etc.)

Another slight change. Went to read the AllMusic review of the new Black Keys album, noticed El Camino (2011) has been downgraded from 4.5 to 4.

Re: Johnny Be Good Tonight: The 100 Greatest Songs of All Ti

Also, my comment was more directed at Eric Mack, who visits this forum occasionally. Sure do! I haven't played many games in recent years, and I never came close to playing all the great ones even when I followed video games very closely when I was younger, but here are some favorites that I think ...

Re: Johnny Be Good Tonight: The 100 Greatest Songs of All Ti

I agree. It's too unforgiving. Maybe someday when they (finally) redesign their site -- it looks painfully out-of-date compared to AllMusic's and AllMovie's sites -- they will add some more into the mix.

Re: Johnny Be Good Tonight: The 100 Greatest Songs of All Ti

Hey Henrik! Thanks for welcoming me here with such open arms. (I was checking the analytics for my site yesterday -- which I almost never do, incidentally -- and I saw someone came to my site through Acclaimed Music, which of course immediately caught my interest.) Yeah, my list is intended more as ...

Re: Johnny Be Good Tonight: The 100 Greatest Songs of All Ti

Yeah, my approach is probably closer to a tastemaker's than a critic's. :music-listening: Cool! Glad you find the AllMusic and AllMovie lists I have put together to be of use. (I cross-referenced the content of each of the rock & pop lists with Rolling Stone's list, too. I have found that to be part...

Re: Johnny Be Good Tonight: The 100 Greatest Songs of All Ti

No, no. Was not offended. I actually appreciate that you thought to post the list on Acclaimed Music and suggest it be considered, especially given that you weren't even a fan of it. It hadn't even occurred to me that someone might do that -- I have visited this site before many times in the past an...

Hi JimmyJazz and Henrik, This is Eric Mack, the writer of the above list. First, thank you, JimmyJazz, for posting it here. I don't know what everyone else thinks of me, but I don't really consider myself a critic, and I wouldn't add my list to the ones already in play on this site. (Though from gla...
