  • Up to 39 contributions, one more needed to reach my target, so continue to send me numbered lists.

    And the way things have worked out, now I can do a top 50 countdown. As Alan Partridge might say-back of the net!




  • Happy for you to stick a thread in Alt/Indie if you want some people from over that way. Say you ran it by me in the thread if you do.




  • Full list, 40 contributors so far.

  • Hope closing is still september, trting to get a list together down to 50, very hard to choose might do a David Bowie on it.




  • I want to enter this, but I just don't think my heart can take another Arcade Fire knocking out Queen event with an album that is close to my heart.

    Didn't think this was a knock out but a countdown based on number of noms?

    10th September.

    Countdown, correct, not a tournament. The more contributions, the better the countdown will be. I hope to get a list from speckle, Plentyohtoole...and quickbeam now too. :D

    We're at 42 contributions currently.

  • I'll be throwing you one in the morning as well.

    This thread slipped down my followed ones!




  • hope to finish my list at weekend having a hard time making it 100




  • Scoring system.

    5 Points per nomination and

    1. 10
    2. 9
    3. 8
    4. 7
    5. 6
    6. 5
    7. 4
    8. 3
    9. 2
    10. 1

    If you can't put the top ten in order, just send me a list of ten unnumbered and your pick will get 5 points.

    43 contributors so far, still hope for 2 or 3 more.




  • You want us to put the albums we have already nominated in order of preference?




  • You want us to put the albums we have already nominated in order of preference?

    I'm saying you don't have to, but that was the idea from the start. Most have done that already.:)

    I presumed your list was in order of preference, but if it wasn't, that's fine. I think you said it was, if I recall correctly. Long time ago now.




  • 46 contributions now.

    Just send me an unnumbered list of ten or twenty if you really struggle to narrow it down. Each nomination gets 5 points.

    Closing 7th September 23.59pm. :)




  • I've already sent in 10 ages ago, are you saying we can send more? I'm sure I could think of another 10.




  • Nah don't you send anymore. It's only an option for the stragglers if they can't narrow it down to ten.

    I know the feeling... I gave up agonizing and just sent a list in, just as long as they are included.. null points will do...it was too heartbreaking to pick such a small amount as each one is dear in its own way.

    I ended up being absolutely ruthless and decided against doubling up on albums from the same band.

    So some faves got left out but at the expense of range.

    yep I did similiar, no live albums, no reissues, no film soundtracks, no classical, no complilations, nothing too recent and no EP's and still I was nearly in tears. That being said the collection at home is quite large to start. But it was an adventure of rediscovering forgotten gems. The last time I re listened to everything was over a decade ago.

    I started with an off the top of my head 53 albums and worked from there.

    Some gems alright that I haven't bothered with in a while. But there's also members in my top 10 that haven't left the rotation ever!
