Ranking: Best Albums Ever

Postby Aleril » Thu Sep 10, 2009 6:59 am UTC

I would go into detail on how this works, but all I really have to say is it's this except replace song with album.

If you are too lazy to do that, here is the original, but with song replaced with album:

greeniguana00, with some changes wrote:Ok, so here's the deal: we are going to compile a list of the best albums ever, one album at a time. Of course this is something very subjective, so I have devised a system to make it as fair as possible:

a) Post the name of one album with an artist in this format:
Add Name of Album - Band Name

This album will then be added to the list.

b) Include one ranking shift in this format:
[+] Name of Album - Band Name
or
[-] Name of Album - Band Name

The first will increase the rating of a album, the second will decrease it.

c) You may not make consecutive posts. You may only post again after someone else has posted.

d) You may only post once per day.

So, an example post would look something like this:

Add In The Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson
[+] In The Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson


Notice how I can both add a new album and change the ranking of an existing album both at the same time? You can do one or the other or both at the same time, and they can be for different albums, but you can not do more than one of one at the same time.


Here is the list (with ratings in parentheses):

    1. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd (7)
    2. OK Computer - Radiohead (7)
    3. Origin of Symmetry - Muse (6)
    4. The Beatles (The White Album) - The Beatles (4)

    13. Rumours - Fleetwood Mac (1)
    14. Kind of Blue - Miles Davis (1)
    15. The Ascension - Glenn Branca (1)
    16. The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society - The Kinks (1)
    17. Porcupine Tree - Deadwing (1)
    18. The Queen is Dead by The Smiths (1)
    19. Train of Thought - Dream Theater (1)

Add This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About by Modest Mouse.
[+1] to Daydream Nation by Sonic Youth.

I just got that Modest Mouse album about two weeks ago. I've always had Talking Shit About A Pretty Sunset but not the album it was on. The album is amazing. I still have to listen to it more though, so I'm not going to add to it yet.
