Anyone who’s curious of the plan, I intend to post 25 albums every eight hours, that being at 8 am and 8 pm CST. So fifty a day, until the last day, when I’ll leave the top ten to be released on their own day, one at a time. So this rollout will take about three weeks. Is everyone alright with that?

When I read every eight hours I understood 100 albums per day, but I get. I think it could be too slow; my suggestion it'd be 100 albums per day during 1000 to 501, and then 50 per day and finally the Top ten as you say. But you have the last word! You're the Boss! We'll be waiting anyways! :music-rockon:

I also read 100 a day, but no matter. :)

Three weeks seems a bit long, but then again, 50 a day with batches of 25 sounds quite reasonable.
So I'm fine with that pace and also with panam's option.

Panam’s idea is a good one! I’ll do that, with 100 a day from 1000-500!

Looks great!

Biggest surprise was seeing Camel's Mirage here. I added that one to Moderately Acclaimed, I think two years ago. Is that what brought it sudden fame here, on a list I think will have otherwise little prog rock outside of the few big ones? I see more Moderately Acclaimed albums of the last few years rising so that game is certainly influential.

Also happy to see All Mirrors and You Want It Darker, as well as new rise of Made in Japan by Deep Purple and the huge surge for We Insist! (which is now curiously more popular among people under 40, despite being from 1961!).

Unsurprisingly, more recent albums do better with younger AMers but like Rob just mentioned there are a few surprising exceptions. It will be interesting to see if doing better with younger people now is a strong predictor of placing higher next time. In other words, is this showing us how taste evolves?

Is that what brought it sudden fame here, on a list I think will have otherwise little prog rock outside of the few big ones? I see more Moderately Acclaimed albums of the last few years rising so that game is certainly influential.

Also happy to see All Mirrors and You Want It Darker, as well as new rise of Made in Japan by Deep Purple and the huge surge for We Insist! (which is now curiously more popular among people under 40, despite being from 1961!).
Please provide a few song recommendations from the Mirage album.

I love all the new faces and reshuffling here at the bottom of the list compared to last time. More classics to eventually dig into!

Also thanks for all the data, Holden.

The divide between the two age demographics is fascinating to look at, particularly the more pronounced cases, where an album is unranked by one demographic and very highly rated by the other. Seeing Mac DeMarco right next to a Gorecki symphony, one only voted by 40 and under and the other by only 40+ made me crack.

Just out of curiosity, how many of each age demographic are there? Is it a roughly even split or is one larger than the other by a notable extent?

Under 40: 40
40 and over: 29

So not too bad of a split, but not perfectly even.

I love the over/under 40 splits! Great addition the roll-out. The pace sounds good to me, though I'd personally prefer a quicker top ten reveal given everyone will know what is left at that point.

Renan and vivian - you were the top fans for Beauty Behind the Madness. I have just recently started listening more intently to The Weeknd. My favorites from the BBTM album are presently: Can't Feel My Face, In the Night, and Tell Your Friends.

I've heard The Hills a few time and it's also pretty good. Please let me know if there any other songs on the BBTM album that you recommend I listen to a few more times. Thanks!

For anyone wondering what the colors mean, a green AM Rank means that that album is a “Forum Favorite” which means it beat its AM Rank by a significant amount. A green rank means that it improved upon its 2017 rank by a significant amount, and a red means it lowered it by a significant amount. This factor is multiplicative (1.5 to be exact) so it means that even higher ranked albums can “Forum Favorites.” For example, let’s say Sgt. Peppers got 2nd overall. This would make it a “Forum Favorite,” even though it’s only 3 spots higher than its AM Rank. Similarly, it would be designated as green if it went from 5 to 2 from 2017 to 2020, and an album from 2 in 2017 to 5 in 2020 would get a red designation. I thought this would be an interesting addition to the rollout, hope you like it!

Italy doesn’t get the best representation when it comes to music and that’s not even counting pop and rock. I’d like to see that change some day. You never hear of a big Italian scene in really any genre I guess other than soundtracks/scores. Seems to be the most visited, popular country without much love here.

Thanks for all your work Holden. The Green and Red colours are nice edition.

Two corrections:

915. Daughters | You Won't Get What You Want ()
You missed to put the year in there. 2018.

907. The Kinks | Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround (Part One) (1970)
You put the wrong album cover there. Face to Face is hopefully a lot higher on the list. The album Cover to Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One should be this one

I really like it, it makes it easier to spot relevant information at a glance. In fact, now I even wish you would also use red for the AM vs. AMF Rank comparison and not only for the previous AMF vs. current AMF rank comparison. But what you're doing is already great so I'm not complaining!

Good to see Once Upon a Time in the West rise so much, but considering it is obviously the second best album of all time it is still too low.
spiderpig wrote: Tue Oct 20, 2020 7:20 pm Unsurprisingly, more recent albums do better with younger AMers but like Rob just mentioned there are a few surprising exceptions. It will be interesting to see if doing better with younger people now is a strong predictor of placing higher next time. In other words, is this showing us how taste evolves?
Well, I also noticed the connection to Moderately Acclaimed game and many of the old albums that both rise and do well with younger people appeared there, so perhaps that game is just played by a younger demographic?

Mirage is very consistent, but the epic 12 minute Lady Fantasy is without a doubt the big classic here. If you want something shorter I would recommend Free Fall or Supertwister.

You only gave me a list of ten albums, but you needed 50 to enter.

My favorite album from each segment :

1000-976 : Fugazi - The Argument.
It's fairly impressive that a band as important and forward thinking band as Fugazi went out with their best album, but imo they sure did.
The Argument is both an encapsulation of Fugazi's career and a step-forward, whether or not it's their best is open to discussion but I think most people would agree it is their most accessible.
The first 3 tracks bring back what made early Fugazi so great : cool bassline, screamed chorus, righteous anger, rythmic mischief... but the rest of the album goes to a slower, moodier pace, peaking on the closer title track.
It also stays as political as ever, ending the band's final verse with a defining line "I'm on a mission to never agree"

975-951 : The Microphones - The Glow pt2
Only 2 albums I voted for in there, and both were fairly low on my list, but there is an endearing quality to The Glow Pt. 2 lo-fi indie rock.
Rarely an album felt like it could fall apart at any time, or that some parts are not played as planned but kept anyway, and it leads to plenty little moments of grace whether it's the fun guitar line that shows up halfway the opening track, the trumpets in the chorus of The Moon or the dizzying effects of Maps
I could do without the "Something" tracks in the middle, or some of the electronic bloops added, but overall it's a surprisingly warm, often impredictable and hugely (once more, for lack of a better word) endearing.

950-926 : Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork (a whole bunch of albums I voted for in there though)
I was ready to give up on QOTSA after a disappointing Era Vulgaris and a so-so Josh Homme side project, but oh was I wrong.
...Like Clockwork is fantastic start to finish, maybe even their more consistant record. The cool riffs are here as usual, Fairweather Friends kicks all kind of ass (and what the hell did Elton John take to drop those insane piano melodies ?), My God is The Sun is a cool throwback to Songs for the Deaf era tracks and I Sat by the Ocean to Lullabies to Paralyze, but the album truly shines through its calmer songs, showing a more earnest and personal side of Josh Homme than we had been used to : The Vampyre of Time and Memory is a wonderful piano ballad and I Appear Missing an intense reflection on his period of coma carried by one of those guitar lines he somehow own the secret of, building to the title track, another beautiful and somber piano ballad in which Josh can show off his crooner side.

925-901 : Yo La Tengo - Painful
I somehow discovered this album fairly late, being the 7th Yo La Tengo I heard, but it quickly became my favorite.
To be honest, I'm hung from the first seconds, I opening organ melody on Big Day Coming is utterly lovely (they'll actually repeat that feat of an amazing opener a few albums later with the distant percussions of Everyday) and the rest of the song owns up to it. At its best Yo La Tengo can create a mood that's at the same time melancholic and hopeful (check other masterpieces of them like Our Way to Fall, I'll be Around or More Stars Than There are in Heaven). They can also rock, as the other version of Big Day Coming attests, or find a subtle middle ground like in From a Motel 9 or get in an ethereal mood in Nowhere Near.
Yo La Tengo is a special band in the indie rock community, they seems like those reachable, simple people that just happen to also make gorgeous music again and again. Like Low, a similar band in that aspect, they have rarely, if ever, released a truly bad album, but in my opinion Painful is the most successful one from start to finish.

Some short reactions to the list so far:

1207. Tindersticks | Tindersticks [II] (1995): Like their debut, this album fell just short of my Top 500. Good to see it, even if it's outside of the list.
997. Raekwon | Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... (1995): Sorry to see this drop so much. Didn't make my list by an inch or so, but a classic anyway.
993./962. Howlin' Wolf: Nice to see him get some attention.
983. Tom Waits | Mule Variations (1999): First album to make my list. For me one of his best, but AM and AMF don't agree.
973. The Microphones | The Glow Pt. 2 (2001): Also made my list. Only got familiar with it last year, so still in rotation.
972. Max Roach | We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite (1961): Great to see a not so very well known jazz album make a big jump.
970. The National | Sleep Well Beast (2017): The position of this album of theirs makes me wonder if 'I Am Easy to Find' will make the list, but I don't expect it to.
967. Leonard Cohen | You Want It Darker (2016): I like it that this still made the list, because it partly did so well three years ago because of the timing of the poll.
956. Cat Power | Moon Pix (1998): Nice discovery from the last couple of months. Would probably have made my list as of now.
952. Angel Olsen | All Mirrors (2019: Interesting to see a not too obvious quite recent album make the list.
951. Au Pairs | Playing with a Different Sex (1981): That album cover certainly looks intriguing.

Early thoughts:

971. ABBA | The Album (1977)
An "old" album where the Forum youngsters appraise it much more highly than the more "seasoned" AMFers. I wonder if it's because a large percentage of the older folks were more attuned to punk/new wave when ABBA was around as it was "reacting" to them while those who didn't hear it contemporaneously take it on its own merits? Or maybe just the MAMMA MIA effect?

964. Kacey Musgraves | Same Trailer Different Park (2013)
I ran out of a time to drop a bigger list but this almost certainly would be on a list of 1000 for me and help boost that "40 and over" number.

932. Mogwai | Come On Die Young (1999)
This also stood out to me as the album is relatively "new" (just misses last two decades) but older members have it much higher than younger.

924. Kate Bush | The Sensual World (1989)
The great equalizer? Almost equal placement for fogies and whippersnappers alike and a lot higher than the AM placing.

917. George Michael | Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 (1990)
Or maybe it's THIS one.

900-876
This stretch only has 3 albums that would probably be on a top 1000 list for me.

The reason I frequently prefer the lower halves of a list like this is because it always contains the more unusual picks. Take for example that Popol Vuh album that just drops in out of absolute nowhere without warning. I haven't heard it so I have no opinion on it, but I love how random it feels in between many albums we at least know have a lot of fans.

Totally agree. Seeing Tom Zé and Mano Negra is awesome. Better than RS list so far :D

I only hope a thematic playlist about this list.

I'm going to guess at this point that Lateralus is the highest placing album with only three votes, although I'd be tickled to see another leftfield choice pop up.

Take for example that Popol Vuh album that just drops in out of absolute nowhere without warning. I haven't heard it so I have no opinion on it, but I love how random it feels in between many albums we at least know have a lot of fans.
The last time I checked, this album is Rate Your Music's all-time favorite new age album (but '70s "new age" albums have seemed mislabeled to me, if you're expecting a placid sort of music).

Faust IV is my first personal favorite to drop. That seems kind of low for one of the iconic krautrock albums, but I guess it beat its position from last time.

Person Pitch is one of the biggest surprises so far. I thought that album was a surefire top 500 type placement. We'll see with how MPP places if the late-00s style indie has fallen totally out of favor.

I was surprised to see Countdown to Ecstasy so low! That’s my favorite Steely Dan by far!

I thought Floating Into the Night, undun, and UFOF were bigger favorites around here. Nice to see a few Stereolab albums in the T1000 that missed in the last poll.

And there goes the first of my favorites! I need to convert more people to the good devil music of the world :music-rockon:

Also sad to see undun out so soon, glad to see it’s a forum favorite though!
