|Some other wishes. I'm a pretty big fan of 60s music. I also wish to see Joe Cocker, Johnny Winter MC5 Procul Harum The Guess Who and Three Dog Night nominated in the next couple years. I referred to Nick's 60s list for these. That's as far as 60s artists. Some of these had hits in the 1970's and onward. I wish to see Todd Rundgren, Gram Parsons and War on the ballot as far as other 70s in the next couple years. |
I am also predicting Chic, Janet Jackson the Cure the Smiths and Sonic Youth on the ballot in the next couple years. I am not a fan of these but those seem to be likely predictions. I don't think all the ones mentioned will be on the same ballot. I do think they will appear in the next couple Years. Someone said its going to be difficult to keep Janet Jackson off the Ballot. I agree even though I am not a fan. I will finalize my prediction list in late Summer.

Sorry I missed the most recent tiebreaker for the pre-1970s ranking. I just started a new job that requires odd hours so it was hard trying to remember all these deadlines. I thought I had an extra night to cast a ballot, but itís fine the way it turned out.

|AlexVoltaire- I was a little vague about it. The intention is for it to be your personal top 100, your favorites weighted however you choose. It can be your 100 favorites in the order of your enjoyment or your favorite 100 weighted by importance or however you want to do it. There's no obligation to include any of the usual suspects unless they are genuinely among the top 100 albums in your world. Mine will likely have very little crossover with our group top 100 and most of the obligatory "titans" probably won't have albums meaningful enough to me on a personal level to make my top 100. You can approach this as if you, your taste, perspective, enjoyment, opinion and record collection are the only criteria that matter.|
As for the 2/4/6 rule, it's something that I did in another group a few years back and at first a lot of people got a bit huffy about an artist quantity limit being put on their personal favorites list, but by the end everybody thought it turned out to be an interesting twist because most people have the instinct to top load the list with the bulk of their three or four favorite artists' discographies. It ended up causing people to consider the actual albums more than the artist themselves and most everybody ended up pretty happy with what they came up with. I think most of the regulars here can pull off a strong list even withing that one boundary.
I just thought it might be a nice breather for everybody to indulge themselves for a minute in the middle of our long group consensus project and the frustrations and annoyances that are inherent in that sort of thing. Also, we might identify some strong Album Project candidates or potential areas for genre votes.
