The Album Project

The Album Project is a continuation of the Rock Hall Revisited and Rock Hall Projected projects. The Album Project's goal is to recognize the greatest albums of all-time. Here are the voting rules:

The Album Project Constitution

For each induction year, voters have the ability to vote for 12 albums. A minimum of 12 albums most be inducted, but only a maximum of 15 albums.

Each voting period will consist of 5 days. The first day will be a campaigning day where people can discuss and coordinate the albums they plan on voting for. The remaining 4 days will be for voting. Voting will close at 3pm Eastern time, unless specified otherwise.

Albums become eligible 25 years after the earliest date in which the album was released to the public. The starting year is 1986 and the project will all the way to 25 years from the current year (2026 for newly eligible material from 2010). Elections will then take place every year after the New Year in early January.

All genres of music will be eligible. Is includes, but is not limited too, Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Folk, Classical, R&B, Metal, Disco, Hip-Hop, Electronica, Traditional Pop, Jazz, and Blues.

The only stipulation is that the recording has to be of music composed since 1900. This means no recordings of 19th Century classical composers or medieval Gregorian chants. This does exclude re-interpretations of these compositions made by 20th and 21st artists.

No compilation albums released after 1965 will be eligible, unless about 75% of the album was recorded before 1965 (Elvis's Sun Session, etc). Those albums become eligible they year they were released, not recorded.

No explicitly designed trades or partial ballots are allowed. During the campaigning day you are allowed to coordinate with other voters on what albums you want to vote for, give suggestions and such, but you are not allowed to say "I will vote for x , if you vote for y."ť Once you have submitted a ballot you are allowed a maximum of 2 vote changes. This change is only allowed under your own free will and not apart of a trade or designed switch with another.

Tie-breaker rules will be the following:

  • Voting is extended for 24 hours (This will be during the campaigning day)
  • Only those who voted in the first round of voting can vote in the tie-breaker
  • The objective of the tie-breaker is to get the total number of albums inducted for that year to the maximum number of 15
  • This will be done by ranking the albums in your order of preference, the top preference will receive the most votes and the lowest preference will receive one vote, so on and so forth in-between
  • All of these votes will be added up and the top vote getters (up to the necessary amount) will be inducted
Which exact version of an album that will be inducted will be voted on after the album is inducted. This will be important for albums that had different track listings in the United States and the United Kingdom.

These rules can be amended by a majority vote of the body or by act of the moderator if there appears to be a consensus by the body.

Nominations are now closed and voting is now open.

Here are the nominated artists (let me know ASAP if I missed any):

Rush

Posted by Darren on Tuesday, 11.3.15 @ 23:18pm


Album nom

SWV - It's About Time (1992h
This album was wildly successful and helped shape and usher in the 'new Jill swing' movement.

Grammy nominations, Soil Train Award nominations, American Music Award nominations.

Artistically, I actually preferred their sophomore album. Maybe next month.

Artist vote:
Janet Jackson

Posted by Mike on Tuesday, 11.3.15 @ 23:18pm


My Ballot:

Chicago - Chicago (V) (1973)
Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers (1969)
Jethro Tull - Stand Up (1969)
Mastodon - Leviathan (2004)
Smashing Pumpkins - Monuments to an Elegy (2014)
Tom Lehrer - An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer (1959)

Wilco and Traffic were extremely painful cuts and most likely vote switches.

"Funhouse" by the Stooges was already inducted back in the 2024 class. I thought surely it had been inducted as that would've been a huge miss on our part if it hadn't, but yeah, it's already been inducted.

Posted by Donnie on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 01:43am


Not sure if it it'll get any traction but ny nomination for SWV's "It's About Time" released in 1002 qualifies.


Also, I voted Janet Jackson as the artist vote.


My votes:

Hole - Celebrity Skin (1998)
Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers (1969
Midnight Oil - Blue Sky Mining (1990)
SWV - It's About Time (1992)
The War On Drugs - Lost in the Dream (2014)
Wilco - A Ghost is Born (2004)

Artist:
Janet Jackson

Posted by Mike on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 01:52am


Donnie - That did seem like a spectacularly glaring oversight.

I'll replace it with

SWV - It's About Time (1992)

Not exactly in my wheelhouse, but Mike's pitch is completely accurate.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 02:06am


Just realized that I voted for 6 artists instead of 5. Please remove Electric Light Orchestra from my ballot.

Posted by Tom H. on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 07:21am


Darren-

Rick's nomination of Electric Light Orchestra - On the Third Day (1973) was missed from the original nominee list.

Posted by dmg on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 13:18pm


I guess I'll kickstart the conversation about the genre vote. When we did this category in the Song Project I think we used 1978-1991 as a loose chronological guide. The last couple years of the 70's is where we start seeing a bulk of landmark Post-punk albums, Industrial is surfacing to a broader audience with some of the genre's most definitive and foundational work, we're starting to hear from the major 2 Tone and seminal Goth bands and the pioneering Synthpop bands are doing a lot their more adventurous work. '91 is where Nirvana blows up and the labels and media rebrand the phrase "Alternative" into something more vague and commercially mainstream.

"Post-punk/College Rock" is such a broad category that encompasses a lot of subgenres (which we also learned in the Song Project) that could easily stand on their own in a genre vote, that I'm in favor of a split. There's just such a large and diverse amount of material to work with that five albums falls way too short.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 18:21pm


My split proposal is 78-84 where you're hitting the groundbreaking work in most of the Post-punk/College Rock subgenres and 85-91 where we're hitting more of the commercial breakthroughs and polished work.

Yes to a split.

Question would bands like Squeeze and XTC count as post-punk or college rock?

Posted by Greg F on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 19:27pm


Yeah, most definitely.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 19:58pm


I'm guessing Husker Du would also count?

Posted by Tom H. on Wednesday, 11.4.15 @ 20:05pm


Yeah, Husker Du fits.

Here's a good resource for ideas. The top 100 has a lot of really obvious stuff that we've hit, but also has some glaring omissions. The year by year tabs give a broader look at the volume and diversity of albums and artists that fit this area.

There's stuff on those lists that don't fit this genre (GN'R, Prince, Beastie Boys), but it should give a good idea overall.

I'm trying to phase out of the Song and Album projects, but with a Chicago and a Tom Lehrer album up for a vote, somebody has to stand up for what's right.

Besides voting for the Chicago Album (and nominating the Traffic album), it’s kinda ironic that all the other albums were nominated by me were leftovers from the tiebreakers in the last month.

No protests here. Every album fits the genre and is worthy of a vote.

Both the Album and Song ballots are going to take some time to ponder this round.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 11.11.15 @ 00:55am


Here are my top 5 albums being considered for December.

Gary Clark Jr.- Blak and Blu (2012)
The Strokes- Room on Fire (2003)
Bright Eyes- Lifted or The Story is the Soil, Keep Your Ears to The Ground (2002)
PJ Harvey- Let England Shake (2011)
Yo La Tengo- And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out (2000)

Posted by Greg F on Wednesday, 11.11.15 @ 17:40pm


Greg - "Let England Shake" is high priority for me. It's a decade top 10 album, IMO. "Black and Blue" is up there, too. I'd probably get to it pretty quickly. "Lifted or The Story is the Soil, Keep Your Ears to The Ground" and "And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out" are both solid picks, but might take me a little longer to get to.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 11.11.15 @ 19:20pm


I'm not sure what of you those to pick yet. I'll likely focus on Let England Shake and Blak and Blu and Room on Fire before I get to the Bright Eyes and Yo La Tengo albums I will not move on from nominating 2000's until all are in.

Listening to all of the albums that we nominated for the Album Rankings and I realized we didn't differentiate what version of Procol Harum's eponymous debut album that we inducted. There is a UK version and US version. Personally I feel like we should differentiate it as the US album, as this version kicks off the legendary "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and the UK version (like all British records at the time) does not include the single. Would folks like a vote on this or should we just assume that we meant the US version?

Since Peter Murphy - Deep looks like a lost cause, I'll move that vote to Echo & the Bunnymen.

Lax- Deep was a great nomination. It was one of the defining Alternative albums of 1989. Hopefully we can revisit it again soon. Very deserving.

Posted by DarinRG on Tuesday, 11.24.15 @ 22:28pm


I too will use my vote switch as one of my nominations looks like a lost cause. Please switch my vote for

Art Rock/Progressive Rock


Each voter will be allowed to nominate one additional genre this month if they choose to do so. Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on the 3rd.

"80's Pop" is ineligible for nomination until January, as it was the selected genre from June.

"Female Pop Stars" is ineligible for nomination until February, as it was the selected genre from July.

"Movie Soundtracks" is ineligible for nomination until March, as it was the selected genre from August.

"Debut Albums" is ineligible for nomination until April, as it was the selected genre from September.

"2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees" is ineligible for nomination until May, as it was the selected genre from October.

"Post Punk/College Rock" is ineligible for nomination until June, as it was the selected genre from November.

"90's American Alternative Rock" and "Hip Hop/Rap" are now once again eligible for nomination, after spending six months ineligible.


Every voter will be able to vote for 5 nominated album genres. Any genre that receives less than 4 votes in the genre selection will not be automatically nominated for the genre vote next month (any genre that receives 4 votes, but doesn't with the selection vote would be automatically nominated).

There will be three days of voting, ending at 10 PM Central on the 6th, followed by a discussion period to nail down the specifics of the votes (which albums qualify for the genre, whether or not there will be an early influence vote, whether or not the genre will be split along chronological or other lines, etc.). The discussion period will continue until the conclusion of the Album Project voting (which may or may not require a tiebreaker).

There will be 2 days of nominations for the genre vote, followed by 1 day of review. Any voter can lodge a protest against a nominated album, but only if they feel that the album is being nominated inapproriately. Any album that receives 3 protests will be disqualified from the genre vote. There will be 5 days of voting with the same rules as the Album Project vote.


The Artist Vote:

The 1st through the 3rd (3 days) - Nominations for the Artist Vote will take place. Any voter can nominate one Artist that hasn't already been selected for the Artist Vote.

The following artists are ineligible because they have been previously selected:

Bob Dylan
Frank Zappa / The Mothers Of Invention
Jay-Z
Joni Mitchell
Randy Newman
Sonic Youth
Tom Waits


The 4th through the 8th (5 days) - Artist Vote selection voting will take place. Voters will be allowed to vote for five nominated artists. The artist that receives the most votes will be the selected artist for the month. In the event of a tie, there will be a two day tiebreaker vote. The winner will be selected for the month. The loser(s) will NOT be automatically selected for the next month.

The 9th through the 20th (approx.) - Nominations for the selected artist will take place. Everyone will be allowed to nominate 1 album by the selected artist. If the selected artist has a small enough discography of eligible albums, nominations may be skipped with all eligible albums being eligible for the vote.

The 21st (approx.) through the 25th (5 days) - Voting will take place. Voters can vote for exactly five nominated albums. The two albums that receive the most votes will be inducted into the Album Project. In the event of a tie, there will be a two day tiebreaker vote. Tiebreaker losers will be automatically nominated for the next month's Album Project vote.

Can we get a clarification on Echo & the Bunnymen? It's listed as having been inducted in the genre vote, but shows up on the ballot for this round.

Posted by DarinRG on Friday, 12.4.15 @ 23:18pm


Echo and the Bunnymen should have been inducted as a result of the last tiebreaker, so it shouldn't have been included in this month's list of nominees. Anyone who voted for it already can replace their vote and still have a vote replacement available for later.

Posted by Darren on Saturday, 12.5.15 @ 01:44am


Since Echo and the Bunnymen weren't supposed to be on the list, I'll go for the PJ Harvey album instead.

Last cuts were Duran Duran, The Alan Parsons Project, and especially painful was Elton John. We definitely need more Elton John in the album project. There were also several other albums nominated that I would strongly consider voting for in the future.

Question - If we select Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, can we make it "Tom Petty / Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers"? His solo albums usually feature several members of the Heartbreakers, so I think allowing his solo albums to be eligible would make sense.

Darren:
I'd be okay with Tom Petty's solo work included in an Artist Project Vote alongside The Heartbreakers. I figured thou that The Heartbreakers only have 1 album inducted so the priority would be on them. It's true that most of his solo work involves at least one of the Heartbreakers.

On a side note, Tom Petty has a new 24-hour station on SiriusXM: Tom Petty Radio. I listened a few times over the last couple of weeks and it's great. I like the Buried Treasure show he hosts. Anyone who likes Petty should check it out.

Posted by jtrichey on Sunday, 12.6.15 @ 22:52pm


Tough ballot. For me it was on par with the first round of instrumentals in the Song Project. I ended up just going with stuff that I've been supporting or have recently been vocal in support of. Popular Problems and A Farewell to Kings fall into that category, too, it's just a mater of space right now.


Midnight Oil - Blue Sky Mining (1990)
Peter Murphy - Deep (1989)
PJ Harvey - Let England Shake (2011)

We should do a split.

Posted by Greg F on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 00:07am


I agree with a split. When we've done this genre in the past we've found that it covers a pretty broad, diverse territory.

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 00:50am


A split works for me.


Maybe the years 1965-1984 and 1985-2014


Thoughts?

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 01:36am


I don't know if I support a split. How many times have we done this genre in the past?

Posted by Darren on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 12:50pm


Personally I don't think a split is needed here either because this genre vote has been a couple of times in the past. Plus I think we tend to induct a lot of progressive/art rock albums even in the general vote (I'm guilty of doing this because the last couple of nominations that's what I've nominated).

Posted by Nick on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 13:13pm


I'm fine with not doing a split. However if we don't modern era art and prog rock will likely be overlooked in favor of older ones. That's what happened last time we did this genre.

Posted by Greg F on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 14:46pm


How about instead of a split we just do it from 1985-Present?

How about instead of a split we just do it from 1985-Present?

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 15:52pm


I'm still in favor of a split. That cover hopefully allow some artists from both eras that don't stand a chance in the general like Procol Harum, King Crimson, Triumverat, Porcupine Tree, The Mar Volta and many other great artists that would otherwise get overlooked. If this vote were used to try to do just that it make it the most worthwhile. I would not like to see a lot of the most obvious artists get all of the attention. If you do your research you'll find that there is more to this genre than Pink Floyd, Yes, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Rush just to name a few that would likely be nominated heavily.

Posted by Greg F on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 16:33pm


I agree with a split. How about 1960-1979, 1980-2014? I do not agree with just making it 1985-Present. There's too much prog prior to then that needs recognition.

Posted by dmg on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 16:34pm


I already have some in mind:

Procol Harum- Grand Hotel (1973)
Procol Harum- Shine on Brightly (1968)
King Crimson- Discipline (1981)
Kate Bush- Never For Ever (1980)
Opeth- Dammnation
Tori Amos- Boys For Pele (1996) (if this counts)
Triumerat- Spartacus (1975)
Muse- The Resistance (2009)
Return to Forever- Romantic Warrior (1976)
Styx- The Grand Illusion (1977)
Kansas- Point of Know Return (1978)
Jean Michel-Jarre- Equioxe (1978) (if this counts)

no split

Posted by jtrichey on Monday, 12.7.15 @ 22:27pm


I support a split and agree with the one dmg proposed.

Also, that's a great list Greg F. I think I would nominate Styx and Kansas. I am surprised that neither have an album inducted yet. Those are two of the best albums of the 1970s of any genre!

I guess this would be the best place to put this. NPR's annual Top 50 Albums list. There's some really good stuff here, among my favorites of the year (Africa Express Presents, Alabama Shakes, Courtney Barnett, Kamasi Washington, Torres, Vijay Iyer Trio) and a lot that I haven't heard that looks promising. The NPR list is a goldmine every year for discovering strong, eclectic, below the radar albums that I end up loving.

This month's selected genre is "Art Rock/Progressive Rock".

There was a consensus to have a vote split. There wasn't a consensus for when the split would take place, but there seems to be more support for Donnie's suggestion of 1965-1984 and 1985-2014, so we'll go with that.

Nominations are now open for the first genre vote of the month, "Art Rock/Progressive Rock 1965-1984".

Each voter can nominate 2 albums that they think belong in this genre vote.

There will be two days of nominations, followed by 1 day of review and protests (though you can protest at any time during nominations). If you feel that an album has been nominated inappropriately, please lodge a protest. Any album that receives three protests will be disqualified from this genre vote.

Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on Thursday the 10th. Review will end and voting will open at 10 PM Central on Friday the 10th.

There will be a tiebreaker vote to determine which artist will be selected this month between:

Bruce Springsteen
Rush
Tori Amos
Van Morrison
Warren Zevon

Anyone who voted in this selection vote is eligible to vote in the tiebreaker. To vote, rank all 5 artists in order of preference. The highest-ranked artist will receive 5 points, the second-highest will receive 4 points and so on.

In the event of a tie, the first tie-breaker is the artist that receives more first-place (5 point) votes. If that doesn't resolve the tie, we will have another tiebreaker vote featuring those artists.

The winner will be the selected Artist in December. As a result of a recent change to our Artist Project rules, the second-place finisher in the tiebreaker vote will be automatically selected to be the selected Artist in January. The other artists will not be automatically selected.

Voting will end at 10 PM Central on Friday the 11th (to synch up with other projects).

Jennifer - there's a bit of animosity on this page toward Styx and Kansas. I personally enjoy both of those bands, but their mere mention can cause some individuals to lose their minds for some reason.

However, I think there was at least some music on every album nominated that I liked, much to my pleasant surprise. Great Job with the Nominations everyone! :)

Gentle Giant - Free Hand (1975)

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 12.17.15 @ 13:12pm


Justice - Audio, Video, Disco. (2011)

The best Old School Prog for the 21st Century album that I've heard.

Russian Circles - Memorial (2013)

If you're into Prog, Metal or Post-rock and haven't heard this, please do yourself the solid.

Posted by DarinRG on Thursday, 12.17.15 @ 20:16pm


alt-J - An Awesome Wave (2012)
Radiohead - Hail to the Thief (2003)

Posted by Ry Guy on Thursday, 12.17.15 @ 21:36pm


Round 2 Nominations:

The Moody Blues - The Other Side of Life (1986)

Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell (1993)

When Meat Loaf teamed back up with Jim Steinman and Todd Rundgren, they created one of the best albums of the 1990s and one of my all-time favorites. The singles I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That), Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer than They Are, and Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through are prog rock at its best.

I am very surprised that there is not more Meat Loaf music in the album or song projects yet.

Posted by Jennifer on Thursday, 12.17.15 @ 23:32pm


Does “Art Punk” count in this genre vote? If so I think Patti Smith fits that category. If anyone doesn’t agree with my choice, let me know and I’ll nominate another album in its place.

Genre Nominations:
Patti Smith: Dream of Life (1988)
Peter Gabriel: Us (1992)

Artist Nomination:
Tori Amos: Night of Hunters (2011)

Lax32

Posted by Lax32 on Friday, 12.18.15 @ 17:25pm


Hi Lax32 - The Division Bell has already been inducted in the album project.

Posted by dmg on Friday, 12.18.15 @ 17:34pm


Greg F,

-I would definitely support either Bob Seger album-Both are very deserving.
-Wendy Carlos-I just looked her up and she seems like a very cool and interesting choice.
-Anita Baker is also a very good choice.
-I would also probably support the early Steve Miller choice as well.
-I had never heard of Esquivel or Exotica/Space Pop before you mentioned it. It sounds interesting.

Posted by Jennifer on Friday, 12.18.15 @ 19:28pm


Greg- Wendy Carlos would be a lock for me. Esquivel and Martin Denny would be strong considerations.


Post rock, Industrial and Krautrock, are high priority and Exotica/Space Age Pop, 60's Psychedelic and Indie Dance & Indietronica From The 21st Century would most likely get my vote.

I have no enthusiasm for repeating any more genres until we hit some new ones that are poorly represented, Admittedly we haven't ignored Krautrock, but it's one of those many areas where we suffer from "these two or three bands only" syndrome. There's a lot more than Can, Kraftwerk and a rare, occasional bone to Neu! and Cluster that should be acknowledged. All six of those are good areas to look at.

Posted by DarinRG on Friday, 12.18.15 @ 20:00pm


My nominations:

And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - Source Tags & Codes (2002)
TV On The Radio - Return To Cookie Mountain (2006)

Posted by Darren on Friday, 12.18.15 @ 22:23pm


Ah, good call on Trail of Dead. They slipped my mind. Great live band, too. 10 or so years ago they and the Dresden Dolls were both touring and hit Phoenix on the same night. There was really only one logical venue for bands of that size at the time, so they just booked them both as a double bill. Great show.

Posted by Darren on Friday, 12.18.15 @ 23:41pm


DarinRG - Trail of Dead's always been a favorite of mine. They played a show at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD, but I didn't hear about it until the day of the show, so I didn't have a chance to plan a trip to see them. They were the opening act for Dethklok (from the Adult Swim series Metalocalypse), but there was almost no publicity for the show as far as I know.

I hope that they're well-known enough to have a shot in this vote.

Oh, wow. You're right. I suppose that now I have to decide which one I was actually voting for...

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 12.21.15 @ 00:16am


The correct album titles are:

The Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Comatorium (2003)

Sorry about that.

jtrichey and DarinRG, please clarify which album you wanted to vote for. Greg F. and Gassman voted for both albums.

Posted by Darren on Monday, 12.21.15 @ 00:44am


My intention was the album title:

The Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Comatorium (2003)

Fortunately it appears they were both nominated by the same person, so I don't feel like such an a-hole about it.

Not a bad batch of albums there.

Posted by DarinRG on Tuesday, 12.29.15 @ 23:49pm


"Due to a rule change that we voted in on Friday, 02.13.15, albums from 2015 will not be eligible for nomination until April."

This rule change is stupid. There is absolutely no reason to wait until April. I propose that we get rid of it, effective immediately.

I can't even find the change proposal or vote on this page.


Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 04:50am


Found the rule change on the Song Project page, still stupid and unnecessary. There is no reason that new music should be punished with a 3 month delay. We already have a bias against music from this decade, this will only make it worse. We should get rid of it now so we can nominate 2015 albums starting on 1/1/16.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 04:57am


I'm in agreement with Gassman. I always thought it was a bogus rule, too. i vote to ditch it.

Posted by Mike on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 09:57am


The vote was 8-5 to change that rule. Why vote on the rules if we're going to toss the rule changes out before they're implemented?

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 10:10am


Rule Changes In 2016:

Starting in 2016, the years eligible for Album Project nominations are now 1900-2014.

Starting in 2016, albums released in 2015 will not be eligible for nomination until April. There will be a designated 2015 nomination available each month until March 2017. In April 2017, the designated nomination switches over to 2016. For January, February and March 2016, there will only be one nomination available for albums released from 1900-2014.

Starting in 2016, elective (not mandatory as a result of an error in a cast ballot or necessary as a result of a missing song from the final list of nominated songs) vote switches are banned from all Album Project, Genre votes and Artist Project votes (including selection votes).

Starting with the February Artist Project Artist Selection Vote (there won't be one in January as a result of a tiebreaker in December), the selected artist will be banned from being nominated for any Album Project or Album Project Genre Project vote for the next 6 months (not counting the current month). To clarify, this begins next month, as the selection of Van Morrison took place prior to the new rule being applied.

Starting with the February Artist Project Artist Selection Vote, artists that receive 4 votes will automatically be nominated for the next Artist Project Artist Selection Vote. To clarify, this begins next month, as the December vote took place prior to the new rule being applied and there won't be a January vote as a result of the tiebreaker in the December vote.
__________________________________________

The Album Project:

Nominations for this month are now open. Every voter can nominate one album from 2014 or prior to 2014 (2015 albums will not be eligible until April). Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on the 3rd.


The following albums are automatically nominated as the result of losing the tiebreaker in last month's Album Project Vote, Artist Vote or Genre Project Votes:

Coheed & Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness (2005)
The Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Comatorium (2003)


Each voter must vote for exactly 6 albums to have their ballot count.

There will be 5 days of voting, ending at 10 PM Central on the 8th. The top 5 vote-getters will be inducted, with a tiebreaker taking place if necessary.
__________________________________________

The Genre Vote:

The following genres are automatically nominated as a result of losing the previous genre selection vote but receiving at least four nominations:

1960's R&B/Soul
70's Hard Rock
90s Alternative Rock
90's Electronica
Ambient
Blues
Christmas/Holiday
Jazz Fusion
Metal


Each voter will be allowed to nominate one additional genre this month if they choose to do so. Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on the 3rd.


"Female Pop Stars" is ineligible for nomination until February, as it was the selected genre from July.

"Movie Soundtracks" is ineligible for nomination until March, as it was the selected genre from August.

"Debut Albums" is ineligible for nomination until April, as it was the selected genre from September.

"2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees" is ineligible for nomination until May, as it was the selected genre from October.

"Post Punk/College Rock" is ineligible for nomination until June, as it was the selected genre from November.

"Art Rock/Progressive Rock" is ineligible for nomination until January, as it was the selected genre from June.

"80's Pop" is now once again eligible for nomination, after spending six months ineligible.


Every voter will be able to vote for 5 nominated album genres. Any genre that receives less than 4 votes in the genre selection will not be automatically nominated for the genre vote next month (any genre that receives 4 votes, but doesn't with the selection vote would be automatically nominated).

There will be three days of voting, ending at 10 PM Central on the 6th, followed by a discussion period to nail down the specifics of the votes (which albums qualify for the genre, whether or not there will be an early influence vote, whether or not the genre will be split along chronological or other lines, etc.). The discussion period will continue until the conclusion of the Album Project voting (which may or may not require a tiebreaker).

There will be 2 days of nominations for the genre vote, followed by 1 day of review. Any voter can lodge a protest against a nominated album, but only if they feel that the album is being nominated inappropriately. Any album that receives 3 protests will be disqualified from the genre vote. There will be 5 days of voting with the same rules as the Album Project vote.
__________________________________________

The Artist Vote:

As a result of losing the tiebreaker vote in last month's selection vote, Van Morrison is selected for this month's Artist Project. If you like, you can begin nominating eligible songs by the Doors now. Voting will begin after the conclusion of the first genre vote in the Song and Album Project (or the conclusion of nominations in the second genre vote in both projects).

The 9th through the 20th (approx.) - Nominations for the selected artist will take place. Everyone will be allowed to nominate 1 song by the selected artist.

The 21st (approx.) through the 25th (5 days) - Voting will take place. Voters can vote for exactly five nominated songs. The three songs that receive the most votes will be inducted into the Song Project. In the event of a tie, there will be a two day tiebreaker vote. Tiebreaker losers will be automatically nominated for the next month's Album Project vote.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 10:14am


Although I agree with Gassman that the rule is absurd, I also agree with Darren that we should honor the vote. If we want to change it, we should vote for the change to take place in 2017; however, if we do that, we should also continue to vote for 2015 songs and albums through March 2017 as a result of this year's change.

This is where I would nominate To Pimp a Butterfly (2015) - Kendrick Lamar, but I guess I can't do that until April 1st for whatever reason. Very frustrating and annoying.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 15:43pm


Gassman,
I totally agree holding off on 2015 songs/albums is absolutely ridiculous. Another album I will nominate is Courtney Barnett's "Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit," IMO the best debut album of 2015. I will definitely also nominate "Pedestrian at Best" (2015), one of the best songs of 2015.

Posted by Nick on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 16:11pm


I completely agree that 2015 songs/albums being delayed is stupid. Anyway some albums from 2015 that are on my radar for nominations when the time comes:

Janet Jackson- Unbreakable
Ghost- Meliora
Madonna- Rebel Heart
Bjork- Vulnicura
Blur- The Magic Whip
FFS- FFS
Kasey Musgraves- Pageant Material

Van Morrison- Blowin' Your Mind (1967)

Posted by Donnie on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 17:05pm


I don't agree with the 2015 delay either, and I wasn't a part of the vote back then anyway, but either way I think we should honor the vote until the next voting cycle begins.

That being said, I wouldn't get too bent out of shape if I were you, Gassman, as To Pimp a Butterfly is one of those albums you know will get in pretty much as soon as possible. Its the lesser known albums that are affected by the delay, such as John Carpenter's (yes that John Carpenter) Lost Themes, Tupper Ware Remix Party's 2Nite and to a lesser extent Kurt Vile's B'lieve I'm Goin Down... and Tame Impala's Currents.

I usually just stick to the song project, but I may stick my head into the Album project for the upcoming year.

If we won't be able to change the rule to allow for 2015 albums to nominated, we should at least use the next 3 months to discuss 2015 albums we support and give people time to go out and give them a listen. I'll try to come up with a list here soon of albums that I will support for induction.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 17:53pm


Thanks, Greg F. My bad.

I'll nominate J Cole - 2014 Forest Hills Dr.

Posted by Mike on Thursday, 12.31.15 @ 18:30pm


Can I nominate Jeff Lynne's ELO - Alone in the Universe on April 1st, IF there's any interest, it wouldn't be inducted under Electric Light Orchestra, but as a solo effort!

Also, over at The Song Project, "When I Was a Boy" from said album, it's already on this list...

25. ELO, "When I Was a Boy"
Out of the blue, indeed. Comeback king Jeff Lynne was writing "hello from the other side" phone songs before Adele's mama was born, and this ballad summons all his strange magic. Even if he wants to start calling himself "Jeff Lynne's ELO," he'll always be the Electric Light Orchestra who soundtracks our bluest days and blackest nights. Let it ring forever more.

nomination (general:

Eve 6 - Eve 6 (1998)

as for the delay in voting for 2015 songs and albums, we certainly did vote on it, but it wouldn't be the first time that we put a rule up for a new vote that we already voted on recently. I don't see a 3 month delay as any kind of big deal. And despite the objections, I do not think we need to worry about a lack of songs/albums from the present day. We are talking about history, and it took some albums/songs decades to get in the project. What, a 2015 song/album can't wait 3 months? joker initially put up the idea of a 2 year wait which I do think has some merit. 3 months is nothing.

Posted by jtrichey on Friday, 01.1.16 @ 21:55pm


Mike - You've nominated two albums:

J Cole - 2014 Forest Hills Dr.

This month's album project is going to be so difficult. There are about five albums that should definitely be inducted, and there's another album that hasn't been nominated yet that should be in too.

This is one of the examples where I wish we could've gotten enough votes to increase the amount of albums inducted by an artist during the Artist Project (from 2 to 3 or so). I think Van Morrison is gonna be our best use of the Artist Vote in the Album Project, yet.

Posted by Donnie on Sunday, 01.3.16 @ 17:19pm

We could do a split for either.

Artists With 0 Albums: how about at around 1980 or 1985

Industrial: 1977-1989, 1900-2014

Posted by Greg F on Thursday, 01.7.16 @ 23:19pm


^You probably know what I meant but to reiterate 1977-1989, 1990-2014

Posted by Greg F on Thursday, 01.7.16 @ 23:38pm


"Industrial: 1977-1989, 1900-2014"

I've been mulling over two ideas for a split. This ('77-'89) is the first I was pondering, essentially breaking the genre into pre- and post-Pretty Hate Machine, but I'm starting to see that as a split based more on commerce than the genre's stylistic development and am leaning now toward an earlier cutoff. The one I'm thinking at this point, since the timelines for Punk and Industrial are very similar, would move the split up to 1984, which, if I recall, is how we do Punk splits, and is based on the same idea. What I mean is that in both genres the important innovators are in the late 70s through very early 80s, in the mid-80s we're starting to see both genres settling into a core formula, but it's early enough that we still see some unique and influential voices. By the very late 80s and onward most of what we're seeing in both punk and industrial is heavily formulaic or tangential, but not lacking in some great albums (after all NIN and Green Day took paint by numbers post-Industrial and punk respectively, excelled well beyond that and created some damn impressive bodies of work).

So, as with punk, I think the appeal of 1977-84 is that it's weighted toward acknowledging the groundbreakers/innovators of Industrial proper and the earlier, influential post-Industrial pioneers (and this genre is pointless to do if those acts/albums aren't a priority). My big concern with putting the cutoff all the way at 1989 is that the genre pioneers are competing with acts three or four generations removed, who have a totally different feel and style (akin to a punk ballot where artists like Television, Patti Smith and the Jam are competing against Operation Ivy, Fugazi and the Offspring). Most of the acts/albums in the '85-'89 range that would likely draw support are stylistically more part of the chain that NIN pops up on and that carries into the 90s and fractures and scatters early on in the decade. Another issue that I see with an '89 cutoff is that I don't know that there's enough of importance in the 90s that we haven't inducted already to make for a strong master ballot. There's some acclaimed work from Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Front 242, KMFDM and Revolting Cocks, but beyond that we're mostly getting into our mediocre NIN leftovers (With Teeth, Year Zero, The Slip), solid, but "for genre fans only" type acts (Sister Machine Gun, Spahn Ranch, X Marks the Pedwalk, Razed in Black, Lćther Strip)and questionable tangents (Marilyn Manson, Rammstein, Orgy, Rob Zombie, Gravity Kills).

Anyway that's my two cents. I think that splitting at 84/85 will give us stronger and more historically essential options in both rounds, especially the second and ballots that are more stylistically cohesive.

Posted by DarinRG on Friday, 01.8.16 @ 21:27pm


Industrial for me. I have nominees for both, but I'll stick to this one.

In the event Industrial wins and there's a split, I'm thinking of nominating Gary Numan's Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind). For Numan's influence and innovation we already inducted Replicas and his solo Pleasure Principle, but I kind of want to nominate something from the industrial stage of his career, even if he's a relatively "safe" artist by comparison (meaning he's already got inducted albums).

Posted by Jennifer on Friday, 01.8.16 @ 22:05pm


I hadn't thought about Gary Numan, but I think his work from the late 90s onward fits and comes at a point on the timeline that there's not much of relevance that pertains to industrial. That phase of his career is really underrated. Exile(1997) is one that I really like, too.

Different genre, but along the same lines, Echo & the Bunnymen did some of their best work on Evergreen(1997)and What Are You Going to Do with Your Life?(1999), but not a lot of people are even aware that they were still recording in the late 90s.

The following albums have been inducted as a result of this vote:

Billy Joel - Piano Man (1973)
Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door (1979)
The Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Comatorium (2003)


The following albums will be involved in a tiebreaker vote:

Coheed & Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness (2005)
Duran Duran - Duran Duran (1993)
The Smashing Pumpkins - Adore (1998)
Tina Turner - Private Dancer (1984)


Anyone who voted in this month's Album Project vote is eligible to vote in this tiebreaker.

To vote, rank all 4 albums in order of preference. 4 points for the highest-ranked, 3 points for the second-highest and so on.

The two albums that receive the most point will be inducted. The other two albums will be automatically nominated for the February Album Project vote, unless we want to consider the Coheed and Cambria or Smashing Pumpkins albums for the Industrial genre, which is currently winning the genre selection tiebreaker vote (results subject to change).

In the event of a tie in the results, the first tiebreaker is the higher number of highest-rankings on an individual vote basis. If that doesn't resolve the tie, all remaining albums will be involved in a second tiebreaker vote.


Tiebreaker voting will end at 10 PM Central on Sunday the 10th.

Posted by Darren on Friday, 01.8.16 @ 23:36pm


Tiebreaker voting is now closed.

By an 5-5 vote (the tie was broken by eliminating the last vote cast, Jennifer's vote for "Artists with 0 Albums Inducted in the Album Project"), this month's genre will be "Industrial" ("Artists with 0 Albums Inducted in the Album Project" will be the genre in February).

There will be a vote split for this month's genre, split between 1977-1984 and 1985-2014.

Nominations are now open for this month's first genre vote. This month's selected genre is "Industrial 1977-1984".

Any voter can nominate two albums that they feel is appropriate for this genre. If you think that an album has been nominated inappropriately for this genre, please lodge a protest. Any album that receives three protests will be disqualified from this genre vote.

There will be two days of nominations, ending at 10 PM Central on Sunday the 10th, followed by one day of review and protest (though protests can be lodged at any time, not just on the 3rd day), ending at 10 PM Central on Monday the 11th.

Some 1977-84 reccomendations across the Industruial spectrum that I could think of:

Cabaret Voltaire - Red Mecca (1981)
Cabaret Voltaire - Micro-Phonies (1984)
Chris & Cosey - Heartbeat (1981)
Chris & Cosey - Trance (1982)
Chris Carter - The Space Between (1980)
Chrome - Alien Soundtracks (1978)
Chrome - Read Only Memory (1979)
Chrome - 3rd From the Sun (1982)
Clock DVA - White Souls in Black Suits (1980)
Clock DVA - Advantage (1983)
Controlled Bleeding - Wall of China Love Letters (1981)
Current 93 - Dogs Blood Rising (1984)
D.A.F.- Ein Produkt der Deutsch-Amerikanischen Freundschaft (1979)
D.A.F. - Die Kleinen und die Bösen (1980)
D.A.F. - Alles Ist Gut (1981)
Death in June - The Guilty Have No Pride (1983)
Death in June - Burial (1984)
Die Krupps - Volle Kraft Voraus! (1982)
Einstürzende Neubauten - Kollaps (1981)
Fad Gadget - Fireside Favourites (1980)
Fad Gadget - Under the Flag (1982)
Fad Gadget - Gag (1984)
Foetus - Deaf (1981)
Foetus - Ache (1982)
Foetus - Hole (1984)
Front 242 - Geography (1982)
Front 242 - No Comment (1984)
Nurse with Wound - Chance Meeting (1979)
Nurse with Wound - Merzbild Schwet (1980)
Psychic TV - Force the Hand of Chance (1982)
Psychic TV - Themes (1982)
Psychic TV - Dreams Less Sweet (1983)
Skinny Puppy - Remission (1984)
SPK - Information Overload Unit (1981)
SPK - Leichenschrei (1982)
SPK - Machine Age Voodoo (1984)
Swans - Filth (1983)
Swans - Cop (1984)
Test Dept. - Ecstacy Under Duress (1982)
Test Dept. - Beating the Retreat (1984)
Throbbing Gristle - D.o.A: The Third and Final Report of Throbbing Gristle (1978)
Whitehouse - Erector (1981)
Z'EV - Elemental Music (1982)

Could make a believable case for being in this genre:

The Human League - Reproduction (1979)
The Human League - Travelogue (1980)

The Human League essentially came from the same Sheffield scene as Cabaret Voltaire and Clock DVA and their first two albums pretty strongly reflect that. Anything by the Human League after those two albums ("Dare" and onward) most definitely does not fit this genre, though.

Is anyone else having problems with the website "shifting" (text, buttons or fields moving) when you're typing or highlighting text to be copied? It's been doing this for several months. Is there a browser or technique I can use to prevent this from happening?

A big shout out goes to DarinRG for providing that helpful list of potential nominees for this genre vote. I'll admit that I know every little about Industrial music expect Nine Inch Nails and maybe some other 90s artists, but this could be a good introduction to an often-neglected genre. Like Lax33, I almost didn't put out nominations myself because of my lack of knowledge on industrial music. I went with two albums (couldn't listen to all the ones you posted DarinRG) after listening to them that I think would be good choices for this vote.

Posted by Nick on Sunday, 01.10.16 @ 22:23pm


I have no problems when using my computer (I use Google Chrome for the most part, maybe Safari sometimes) and never have any issues. I do have trouble writing texts via my Ipad which takes seemingly forever to write out lists for nominations/ballots for the various projects. That's why I only use my computer for voting and writing comments on FRL site. I think something that might help this problem would be if FRL could maybe archive a lot of these posts, some dating back to 2+ years ago. Maybe that has something to do with it, but I don't know.

"This is my tiebreaking vote. I must say I am quite a bit of a novice when it comes to industrial, so hopefully this special election will be a window to what is among the better industrial albums out there." -Lax

This first round is admittedly a bit on the academic side. Definitely not an area where sales charts or Rolling Stone lists or anything like that can be used as reference points, which I think is fun to occasionally do in genre votes(and the nominees are all very solid so far). "Avant Garde" is one that I look forward to that could be similar.

I'll post a suggestion/reference list heading into round two, which covers a much broader range of subgenres and acts that range from Rock Hall nominees to niche genre fan favorites.

Thank you. I appreciate that there are folks who may not be too familiar with this area, but are taking the time to check out some of the suggestions and submit nominees.

Aside from getting some of the albums that are important to Industrial inducted, my other hope was that a few people, whether they enjoy these artists or not, at least might get a better understanding of what Industrial is, where some of the bigger name acts fit into the timeline, and what exactly I'm referencing when I bring it up.

Seriously how have you not yet inducted Dark Star yet? Arguably the Dead's most important song. Go find the live version from Live/Dead and you'll know why it should be in.

Review will end and voting will open at 10 PM Central on Monday the 11th.

Posted by Darren on Sunday, 01.10.16 @ 23:18pm


Gassman - You nominated 4 albums (3 since Kollaps was already nominated), which 2 did you intend to nominate?

Posted by Darren on Sunday, 01.10.16 @ 23:19pm


I'll just go with, Suicide - 23 Minutes Over Brussels (Live EP) (1978), the other two were meant for the Song Project. Posted it here by mistake.

Tiebreaker voting is now closed.

Here are the final results (let me know if there are any errors; I didn't see ballots from eligible voters DarinRG or Ry Guy):

Tina Turner - Private Dancer (1984) - 40
Duran Duran - Duran Duran (1993) - 36
_____________________________

Coheed & Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness (2005) - 32
The Smashing Pumpkins - Adore (1998) - 32


Coheed and Cambria and The Smashing Pumpkins albums will be automatically nominated for the February Album Project, though they may be eligible for the second Industrial genre vote, depending on the opinions of voters.

I personally think that "Adore" is bordering on being eligible for the genre, but I'd like to hear from others as well. I wouldn't object to the C and C Music Factory (kidding, of course) album being eligible either, if that's what we decide.


Here is the class of inductees from the February Album Project:

Billy Joel - Piano Man (1973)
Duran Duran - Duran Duran (1993)
Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door (1979)
The Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Comatorium (2003)
Tina Turner - Private Dancer (1984)

Nick - So far, so good using Chrome instead of Firefox. It's possible that one of my ad-block or flash-block add-ons was causing the problem.

Posted by Darren on Sunday, 01.10.16 @ 23:38pm


Shouldn't we label the Duran Duran album "Duran Duran (The Wedding Album)" to prevent confusion with their 1981 debut album? That tends to be the norm.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.10.16 @ 23:42pm


I agree with Gassman, call it "Duran Duran (The Wedding Album)" to avoid confusion with the other album. Also, I'd support Smashing Pumpkins' "Adore" being eligible in the 2nd genre round if others agree.

Posted by Nick on Sunday, 01.10.16 @ 23:57pm


I'm planning to not be the vocal genre snob that I've been known to be when we hit round 2. For me to say that a dark ambient composer like Lustmord or neofolk band like Death in June count, but have a fit if somebody nominates Marilyn Manson or Rammstein would be just that, snobbery. But you can at least trace a direct line to Manson or Rammstein on the family tree Smashing Pumpkins is pushing that way too far.

Next round we see the bulk of the discographies of some major industrial acts like Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Front 242, Nitzer Ebb, Test Dept. and KMFDM, acts who are the core of the genre from the mid-80s onward, each of whom have multiple critically acclaimed albums that are some of the genre's most historically important. I think it defeats the purpose of a genre vote to start shoehorning in artists who might show a mild influence, but are not in any way important to or part of the genre's lineage.

We'll have five spots available and just the six acts I mentioned have probably 20 albums between them that are deserving of one of those five spots. I don't see a justification for essentially handing one of them to Smashing Pumpkins, who would probably make the top 5 just for their name recognition, but weren't at all associated with the genre.

That's may opinion, anyway.

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 01:39am


Since we have a review day and things will be slow for a few hours, this would be a good time to start an "official" discussion on 2015 songs and albums that we would like considered once they're eligible in April.


I'll start with a couple picks:

Kendrick Lamar - "To Pimp A Butterfly"
Adele - "25"
Courtney Barnett - "Sometimes I Sit and Think,
and Sometimes I Just Sit"

Posted by Darren on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 11:47am


DarinRG - The major decider for me would be whether or not you thought that "Adore" in particular (as opposed to the rest of their discography, as something like "Mellon Collie" or "Siamese Dream" clearly aren't industrial) is qualified as an Industrial album? This is your area of expertise, so I'll defer to your opinion if there isn't overwhelming support in favor of it's inclusion.

Posted by Darren on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 11:53am


A few:

Wilco - Star Wars
Marilyn Manson - The Pale Emperor
Kurt Vile - b'lieve I'm goin down...

Posted by dmg on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 13:43pm


Janet Jackson- Unbreakable
FFS- FFS
Madonna- Rebel Heart
Blur- The Magic Whip
Ghost- Meliora
Baroness- Purple
Kasey Musgraves- Pageant Material
Bjork- Vulnicura
Mark Ronson- Uptown Special

Just few a 2015 I suggest for your consideration.

Posted by Greg F on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 14:19pm


Darren - I'll tell you what, I haven't listened to Adore in a couple years, so I'll revisit it this evening. It's an album that I liked and thought was some of Billy Corgan's better post-Mellon Collie work, but when I'm in a Smashing Pumpkins mood I usually default to listening to Gish, which is my favorite SP album and first exposure to them, so I don't recall a lot of detail of some of the later albums. I do remember noting a pretty significant goth influence, but don't remember thinking industrial at all. I'll listen to it with a deeper attention to influences and see what comes up.

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 18:10pm


I think that in the production some of the drum sounds are reminiscent of what you might hear from some late 80s-early 90s industrial bands, but rhythmically there's not much of a connection there.

The guitars and keyboards are actually a very good nod to 80s goth without ever sounding overly nostalgic or preciously derivative. I can hear a lot of specific influence from the Cure, Killing Joke, Clan of Xymox, Sisters of Mercy, the Mission/Mission UK and the Danse Society, but I don't get an industrial connection at all.

The good news is that revisiting Adore just moved it way up my priority list. It's a really damn good album.

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 19:36pm


As the one who nominated Adore I think I should chime in on whether it is right for the Industrial vote. I agree with Darin that it has goth influences as it is a much darker album than their previous efforts. However in doing my homework for this genre I gotta say that I would not consider this an Industrial album.

DarinRG- Glad to see that you liked the album. This was the album that really got me into The Smashing Pumpkins. I was 4 when this album came out so I missed the boat on them before that but this album led to discovering their earlier albums and now I consider them one of my favorite bands of the decade

Posted by Tom H. on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 20:31pm


Yeah I so meant to say I was 14 when Adore was released but apparently my ipad did not acknowledge the 1. Gahhh...

Posted by Tom H. on Monday, 01.11.16 @ 22:05pm


Ok, we can hold Adore until the February Album Project vote. For the record, "Mellon Collie" is my favorite Pumpkins album.

For 2015 albums, let's not forget Sleater-Kinney - "No Cities To Love". Definitely one of my favorites.

"For 2015 albums, let's not forget Sleater-Kinney - "No Cities To Love". Definitely one of my favorites."

A lot of my 2015 favorites aren't going to be Album Project contenders, but that's one that I'd probably get behind fairly quickly.

Tom - Thanks for weighing in. I try not to keep track of who nominated what, but I was going to go back and look this one up just to get an opinion. I listened to Adore quite a bit the first couple months it was out, then kinda forgot about it, so it was cool rediscovering it.

If you're interested in ever looking into some of the albums that struck me as being possible influences on Adore's retro-Goth sound, here are a few of them (some of these are inducted in the Album Project, so you may have heard those already):

The Cure - Seventeen Seconds (1980)
The Cure - Faith (1981)
The Cure - Pornography (1982)
Sisters of Mercy - First and Last and Always (1985)
Sisters of Mercy - Floodland (1987)
Sisters of Mercy - Vision Thing (1990)
Sisters of Mercy - Some Girls Wander By Mistake (1992) (collection of their early singles)
Clan of Xymox - Clan of Xymox (1985)
Clan of Xymox - Medusa (1986)
Fields of the Nephilim - Dawnrazor (1987)
Fields of the Nephilim - The Nephilim (1988)
The Danse Society - Seduction (1982)
The Danse Society - Heaven is Waiting (1983)
Red Lorry Yellow Lorry - The Singles 1982 – 87 (1994)
The Mission - God's Own Medicine (1986)
The Mission - Carved in Sand (1990)
Killing Joke - Night Time (1985)
Virgin Prunes - ...If I Die, I Die (1982)
Sex Gang Children - Fall: The Complete Singles (2003)
The Church - Starfish (1988)
Peter Murphy - Should the World Fail to Fall Apart (1986)
Peter Murphy - Love Hysteria (1988)
Peter Murphy - Deep (1989)
Peter Murphy - Holy Smoke (1992)


I have no doubt that Billy Corgan is well versed in all of them.

I appreciate everybody who took the time to look into this era and submit nominees. There wasn't a weak or even marginal choice on the ballot.

Bumping Skinny Puppy and Front 242 was really difficult, but they're going to be two of the more important acts next round where the bulk of their work pops up.

Very good first round, by the way. Those five would be on any credible list of essential Industrial albums.

The Voice of America, Kollaps and Remission are also some very good steps toward filling some of our gaps in the 80s.

Random piece of trivia about a couple artists eligible in this genre vote: I know that there are other people here who are into film composers/scores and the Trent Reznor tie in is obvious, but a couple other prominent film composers also come from Industrial acts. Clint Mansell was the singer for Pop Will Eat Itself and Graeme Revell was a founding member of SPK, one of Industrial's major pioneering acts.

Greg - There has been blizzards and terrible weather conditions in NY and other east coast states the last several days. Many thousands of people, including my own family members, are without power and those states are states in emergencies. It's a pretty scary situation for many people who are experiencing this. That could be the reason why there's only 4 votes in this genre.

Posted by Nick on Saturday, 01.23.16 @ 18:14pm


That could be the case. I just put up a reminder just in case some of you forgot about this round. I would have hated for this round to be decided based on two votes.

My parents and other family members/friends just got power back in their home earlier this afternoon. This is good news, especially since I live out-of-state. The roads, thou, are still pretty bad and I don't know how anyone is gonna travel safely in the NY area. I guess it's a wait-and-see approach tomorrow morning. Thanks for the kind words DarinRG.

Posted by Tom H. on Tuesday, 01.26.16 @ 16:15pm


Coil- Horse Rotorvator (1986)

Not a bad choice here. Some people might be surprised how close I came to voting for Antichrist Superstar on my main ballot.

Ultimately I think that Coil and Horse Rotorvator are more important to industrial as a genre, which is what I try to weight toward in a genre vote, while Marilyn Manson and Antichrist Superstar were more tangential to the genre (but still closely related enough to be a perfectly fine nominee here), but more important to their overall era, which would carry more weight with me in a main open vote. I'll say the same about Rammstein - Sehnsucht, an album that I'm actually a big fan of and would pretty quickly support in a main round.

The final results are as follows:

Another very good batch of albums that did the genre justice. I really don't think there was a facepalm or anything even borderline questionable inducted in either round.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 01.27.16 @ 04:33am


The Album Project:

Nominations for this month will begin at 10 PM Central. Every voter can nominate one album from 2014 or prior to 2014 (2015 albums will not be eligible until April). Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on the 3rd.


The following albums are automatically nominated as the result of losing the tiebreaker in last month's Album Project Vote, Artist Vote or Genre Project Votes:

Coheed & Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness (2005)
Coil - Horse Rotorvator (1986)
The Smashing Pumpkins - Adore (1998)


Each voter must vote for exactly 6 albums to have their ballot count.

There will be 5 days of voting, ending at 10 PM Central on the 8th. The top 5 vote-getters will be inducted, with a tiebreaker taking place if necessary.
__________________________________________

The Genre Vote:

This month's selected genre is "Artists with 0 Albums Inducted in the Album Project". This genre was selected as a result of losing the genre selection tiebreaker last month.

There will be a discussion period to nail down the specifics of the votes (which songs qualify for the genre, whether or not the genre will be split along chronological or other lines, etc.). The discussion period will continue until the conclusion of the Song Project voting (which may or may not require a tiebreaker).

There will be 2 days of nominations for the genre vote, followed by 1 day of review. Any voter can lodge a protest against a nominated song, but only if they feel that the song is being nominated inappropriately. Any song that receives 3 protests will be disqualified from the genre vote. There will be 5 days of voting with the same rules as the Song Project vote.
__________________________________________

The Artist Vote:

A few rule changes of note for this vote, starting this month:

The selected artist in the Artist Vote will be banned from being nominated for any Album Project or Album Project Genre Project vote for the next 6 months (not counting the current month). To clarify, this does not include Van Morrison, as the selection of Van Morrison took place prior to the new rule being applied.

Starting with the February Artist Project Artist Selection Vote, artists that receive 4 votes will automatically be nominated for the next Artist Project Artist Selection Vote. To clarify, this begins with this month's vote, as the December vote took place prior to the new rule being applied.


The 1st through the 3rd (3 days) - Nominations for the Artist Vote will take place. Any voter can nominate one Artist that hasn't already been selected for the Artist Vote.

Electric Light Orchestra and Yo La Tengo are already nominated, as they were nominated in January.

The following artists are ineligible because they have been previously selected:

Beyonce
Bruce Springsteen
Elvis Presley
The Beatles
The Doors
The Kinks
The Rolling Stones
The Who
Van Morrison

The 4th through the 8th (5 days) - Artist Vote selection voting will take place. Voters will be allowed to vote for five nominated artists. The artist that receives the most votes will be the selected artist for the month. In the event of a tie, there will be a two day tiebreaker vote. The winner will be selected for the month. The loser(s) will NOT be automatically selected for the next month.

The 9th through the 20th (approx.) - Nominations for the selected artist will take place. Everyone will be allowed to nominate 1 song by the selected artist.

The 21st (approx.) through the 25th (5 days) - Voting will take place. Voters can vote for exactly five nominated songs. The three songs that receive the most votes will be inducted into the Song Project. In the event of a tie, there will be a two day tiebreaker vote. Tiebreaker losers will be automatically nominated for the next month's Song Project vote.

"And my Artist Vote nomination is:

This prompted me to see what of Bowie's we have and haven't inducted, which I'd never checked up on and there are some pretty big omissions as well as a few that might not be considered essentials, but are still plenty worthy of consideration:

Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold the World, Diamond Dogs, Young Americans, "Heroes", Lodger, Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), Outside, Earthling, Heathen.

Good call, Lax.

This month's selected genre, as a result of losing the tiebreaker in last month's selection vote is "Artists with 0 Albums Inducted in the Album Project".

Nominations will open on the 8th. Please use the time before then to determine if we'll be splitting the genre into two votes and what year the groups will be split after if we decide to have two votes.

Artists that received more than 4 votes will automatically be nominated for the March Song Project Artist Project Selection vote.


This month's selected artist is David Bowie. After this vote, David Bowie will be disqualified from Album Project and Genre Project votes for the next 6 months.


Nominations are now open. Each voter can nominate one album by David Bowie (I would assume that would include songs from his band Tin Machine, but if that's a problem, we can discuss it) that hasn't already been inducted and was released between 1900 and 2014.


Here is the list of David Bowie albums that have already been inducted:

Aladdin Sane (1973)
Heathen (2002)
Hunky Dory (1971)
Let's Dance (1983)
Low (1977)
Station To Station (1976)
The Next Day (2013)
The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (1972)


Here's a link to wikipedia's David Bowie discography page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Bowie_discography


Nominations will close when nominations for the second genre votes in the Song Project and Album Project are both closed.

Artist Nomination:
David Bowie- "Hereos" (1977)

Posted by Greg F on Tuesday, 02.9.16 @ 00:50am


Nominations are now open for the first of this month's genre project votes.

This month's selected genre is Artists with 0 Albums Inducted in the Album Project. We'll split the genre into two votes, 1900-1980 and 1981-2014 (I only saw suggestions for 1980 and 1990 and an 80-34 split made more sense to me. If we want to change this we still can.)

Nominations are now open for the first genre vote this month "Artists with 0 Albums Inducted in the Album Project 1900-1980".

Any voter can nominate two albums that they think belong in this genre. There won't be any protests for either genre vote this month, as the artist nominated is either eligible or they aren't. If you notice an ineligible nominee, please point it out ASAP.

There will be three days of nominations (ending at 10 PM Central on Thursday the 11th) and five days of voting.

I just noticed that the first album genre nominations don't end until Thursday night. I guess I got confused because for some reason the first song genre nominations ended tonight. Sorry about that. Here is a neater post of my nominations and honorable mentions/nomination suggestions:

Artists with 0 Albums Inducted in the Album Project 1900-1980:

Air Supply - Lost in Love (1980)
Herman's Hermits - Herman's Hermits (1965)

Honorable Mentions:
Adam Ant - Friend or Foe (1982)
Pat Benatar - In the Heat of the Night (1979) and/or Crimes of Passion (1980)

Posted by Jennifer on Thursday, 02.11.16 @ 01:20am


Doh! Sorry, let's try those Honorable Mentions/Nominations Suggestions for 1900-1980 again:

Adam and the Ants - Kings of the Wild Frontier (1980)
Pat Benatar - In the Heat of the Night (1979) and/or Crimes of Passion (1980)

Posted by Jennifer on Thursday, 02.11.16 @ 01:27am


Jennifer - This month's song project genre was subject to a day of review and protest. This month's album project genre is still open because protests in this genre are pass / fail. Either an artist has an album inducted or they don't, so protests aren't needed.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 02.11.16 @ 18:11pm


Darren, Thank you so much clarifying that. Now, I understand. I am sorry about my confusion. :)

Posted by Jennifer on Thursday, 02.11.16 @ 20:49pm

"What was I thinking, nominating that bum Glen Campbell. Should have gone with Andrea True Connection instead......"

I was just excited about your John Cale pick. He's got four albums that pretty much fall into the no brainer category. As far along as we are, it's a bit strange that he'd still be eligible for this category.

I'll make a deal with you. I'll keep nominating John Cale - Paris 1919 if you keep voting for it and help sell it a little bit. Some of our fellow voters might need a little convincing, but you're way more credible in that department than a guy named "joker."

Posted by joker on Tuesday, 02.16.16 @ 21:03pm


Any of John Cale's albums would probably get my vote in the future. I will admit this 1st genre vote was brutal, in terms of the great nominations from everyone. It just came down to priority for me as a voter. It's hard to believe that Cale's name wasn't nominated when we did the Art/Progressive Rock genre months ago. He would've been an excellent choice since his post-Velvet Underground work is quite underrated and brilliant.

Posted by Nick on Tuesday, 02.16.16 @ 21:15pm


Nick, way cool. It's crazy how stuff works out around here. Remember when you protested Crimes of Passion by Pat Benatar because you didn't think it was pop enough? Now here we are a few months later, and it looks like it will be inducted under a completely different genre!

Posted by joker on Tuesday, 02.16.16 @ 21:53pm


Joker, you can say Pat Benatar finally "belongs" in the Album Project lol. She was always one of my favorites and actually went to one of the high schools near my house on Long Island.

Posted by Ry Guy on Thursday, 02.18.16 @ 08:02am


There are lots of great nomination so far! Mine are coming soon.

Nick,

Katy Perry is a great pick! I would like to respectfully suggest amending the Katy Perry nomination to be the 2012 reissue Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection which also includes two additional excellent songs "Wide Awake" and "Part of Me" as well as all the excellent songs of the original. For me, these two later songs are what first got me into her music. After the songs and their videos wowed me, I started checking out the rest of her music. "Wide Awake" is still my favorite of her songs. It surprises me that she is not already in the album project and only has one song in the song project.

Posted by Jennifer on Thursday, 02.18.16 @ 10:09am


Also, I just noticed that one of Ry Guy nominations is misspelled. I think he meant:

Madvillain - Madvillainy (2004)

Sorry about being such a stickler about spelling. I can't help it because I was a spelling bee champ in grade school a long time ago (LOL) and just tend to notice these things.

Posted by Jennifer on Thursday, 02.18.16 @ 10:21am


My nominations come straight out of my regular set:

Angel Olsen - Burn Your Fire for No Witness (2014)
Coheed & Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness (2005)

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 02.18.16 @ 12:03pm

Artists with no Albums in the Album Project Nominations Part 2 (1981-2014):

fun. - Some Nights (2012)
Train - Drops of Jupiter (2001)

Honorable Mentions/Nomination Suggestions (before 2000):

Enigma - The Cross of Changes (1993)
Enya - A Day Without Rain (2000)
Shakespears Sister - Hormonally Yours (1992)
The Bangles - Different Light (1986)

Honorable Mentions/Nomination Suggestions (after 2000):

Bastille - Bad Blood (2013)
Cage the Elephant - Cage the Elephant (2008) or Melophobia (2013)
Colbie Caillat - All of You (2011)
Ed Sheeran - + (2011) or x (2014)
Fitz and the Tantrums - More Than Just a Dream (2013)
Gavin DeGraw - Sweeter (2011)
Imagine Dragons - Night Visions (2012)

In my opinion, these albums, including Train and fun. and several others already nominated as well, are some of the best albums of the past 5-15 years that are not yet in the album project. They all helped me to get excited about modern day popular rock music (since most of my favorite music is from the 60s, 70s, and 80s).

Posted by Jennifer on Thursday, 02.18.16 @ 13:44pm


Thank you Jennifer for supporting my nomination of Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream.' This album should be a no-brainer, since the album features many hit singles and is one of the decade's most popular albums. I definitely support more Perry in the Song Project. She would be an ideal candidate for the Artist Vote, especially like many pop stars, she's essentially a singles artist.

It's somewhat strange that Part of Me and Wide Aware, both great songs IMO, appeared on a later reissue of that album. It seems a little weird that this happened but it's not exactly surprising. There are many greatest hits albums, for example, that feature a new song or two for promotional reasons yet we can't induct those greatest hits complications. One that immediately comes to mind is Mariah Carey's "#1's" album featuring the then-new songs "I Still Believe"and "When You Believe." It's about marketing and the record companies making even more money.

I'm totally open to the 2012 version of the album being nominated; however, I would like to hear what others think of this. I'm fine either with 2010 or 2012 versions of the album on this ballot. If no one objects, then I'll stick with the 2010 version.

Aaliyah - Aaliyah (2001)

Buddy Guy - Damn Right, I’ve Got The Blues (1991)
Katy Perry - Teenage Dream (2010)
Mariah Carey - The Emancipation of Mimi (2005)
Norah Jones - Come Away With Me (2002)

Another very tough ballot to narrow down. Excellent choices from everybody and I’d support most of it in the future.


Diamond Dogs (1973)
Heroes (1977)
Labyrinth (1986)
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) (1980)
Young Americans (1975)

On a side note, Diamond Dogs was released in 1974, and not 1973. It's shocking some of these albums aren't already inducted.

I'll freely admit that I haven't listened to the entire Diamond Dogs album, but wasn't it mostly critically panned when it was released? Obviously opinions can change with albums over time, but I'm surprised it's gotten so much support.

Sorry about the mistake, but SotN is correct and the Artist Vote wasn't supposed to end until tonight.

Since Jennifer's vote came in before 10 PM Central tonight, it will be counted.

Jennifer's vote breaks the previously existing tie, so the tiebreaker is no longer necessary.

Rule Changes In 2016:

Starting in 2016, the years eligible for Album Project nominations are now 1900-2014.

Starting in 2016, albums released in 2015 will not be eligible for nomination until April. There will be a designated 2015 nomination available each month until March 2017. In April 2017, the designated nomination switches over to 2016. For January, February and March 2016, there will only be one nomination available for albums released from 1900-2014.

Starting in 2016, elective (not mandatory as a result of an error in a cast ballot or necessary as a result of a missing song from the final list of nominated songs) vote switches are banned from all Album Project, Genre votes and Artist Project votes (including selection votes).

Starting with the February Artist Project Artist Selection Vote (there won't be one in January as a result of a tiebreaker in December), the selected artist will be banned from being nominated for any Album Project or Album Project Genre Project vote for the next 6 months (not counting the current month). To clarify, this begins next month, as the selection of Van Morrison took place prior to the new rule being applied.

Starting with the February Artist Project Artist Selection Vote, artists that receive 4 votes will automatically be nominated for the next Artist Project Artist Selection Vote. To clarify, this begins next month, as the December vote took place prior to the new rule being applied and there won't be a January vote as a result of the tiebreaker in the December vote.
__________________________________________

The following genres are automatically nominated as a result of losing the previous genre selection vote but receiving at least four nominations (or were nominated in a month when we didn't have a genre vote due to a previous month's tiebreaker):

2010's
70's Hard Rock
90's Electronica
Ambient
Avant-Garde
Jazz Fusion
Novelty
Post-Rock


Each voter will be allowed to nominate one additional genre this month if they choose to do so. Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on the 3rd.


"Debut Albums" is ineligible for nomination until April, as it was the selected genre from September.

"2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees" is ineligible for nomination until May, as it was the selected genre from October.

"Post Punk/College Rock" is ineligible for nomination until June, as it was the selected genre from November.

"Art Rock/Progressive Rock" is ineligible for nomination until July, as it was the selected genre from December.

"Industrial" is ineligible for nomination until August, as it was the selected genre from January.

"Artists With 0 Albums Inducted In The Album Project" is ineligible for nomination until September, as it was the selected genre from February.

"Female Pop Stars" and "Movie Soundtracks are now once again eligible for nomination, after spending six months ineligible.


Every voter will be able to vote for 5 nominated album genres. Any genre that receives less than 4 votes in the genre selection will not be automatically nominated for the genre vote next month (any genre that receives 4 votes, but doesn't with the selection vote would be automatically nominated).

There will be three days of voting, ending at 10 PM Central on the 6th, followed by a discussion period to nail down the specifics of the votes (which albums qualify for the genre, whether or not there will be an early influence vote, whether or not the genre will be split along chronological or other lines, etc.). The discussion period will continue until the conclusion of the Album Project voting (which may or may not require a tiebreaker).

There will be 2 days of nominations for the genre vote, followed by 1 day of review. Any voter can lodge a protest against a nominated album, but only if they feel that the album is being nominated inapproriately. Any album that receives 3 protests will be disqualified from the genre vote. There will be 5 days of voting with the same rules as the Album Project vote.
__________________________________________

The loser(s) will NOT be automatically selected for the next month.

The 9th through the 20th (approx.) - Nominations for the selected artist will take place. Everyone will be allowed to nominate 1 album by the selected artist.

The two albums that receive the most votes will be inducted into the Album Project. In the event of a tie, there will be a two day tiebreaker vote.

Here is my ballot for this month's Album project. Once yet again, this ballot is in light of some recent passages that have occurred this year.


Earth, Wind & Fire - Faces (1980)

My genre vote nomination for this month is:

Original Broadway Cast Albums

And my Artist Vote nomination is:

The Carpenters

Do not laugh at these nominations; each one is legitimate,

Lax33

Posted by Lax33 on Wednesday, 03.2.16 @ 16:54pm


Note to Darren: Dr. W and whuntva are one and the same. I momentarily mixed up my AcclaimedMusic handle with the one I use here. So even though that post read whuntva, Dr. W wrote it. So count this as the same vote.

---

Oh. I didn't realize. It was pretty recent, because I remember it not being inducted and it being a very glaring oversight IMO.

But in keeping with post-rock, I nominate...

Swans-Soundtracks for the Blind (1996)

I can think of at least four Swans albums that are worthy, but this is probably their most "important" album, and the one I want to take priority.


I hope I made myself clear in this confusion. Thank you.

Dr. W - No problem. We caught the error before nominations were final.

I'm working on a suggestion list, but probably won't finish tonight. My inclination right now is to approach this as a single thread of music and draw a split at 1970. We really haven't even touched 60s Jamaican music, which more than merits it's own category.

This is an area that I know my way around fairly well, but I'm not as immersed or cartoonishly opinionated abut it as I was with Post-punk and Industrial, so I'm plenty open to other opinions. One area that I have mixed feelings about is late 70s and 80s ska revival. My inclination is that if we're talking about acts who were primarily ska bands (the Specials and Madness as two well known examples), they should be fine. One thing I'm adamant about though, is not opening the vote to later acts who had a heavy ska or reggae influence, but primarily fall under other genres (the Clash, the Slits, Operation Ivy, Rancid Sublime, No Doubt, etc). There's way more than enough worthy and important material to work with here that we don't need to veer into watered down tangentials.

Thanks DarinRG; this will be helpful at least for me since I know some of these artists but not all of them. This should be an interesting genre vote since relatively few albums of these genres are inducted in the Album Project.

Posted by Nick on Monday, 03.7.16 @ 21:47pm


Thanks, Nick. One day a few weeks ago I was on a Desmond Dekker/Laurel Aitken/Prince Far I/Toots and the Maytals kick and I started thinking about how much significant ska and reggae music there is and how little we've touched it. Off the top of my head, I can only think of a few Marley/Wailers albums and one each from Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, Toots and the Maytals and the Specials that we've inducted. Those albums are all very deserving and a more than respectable start and hopefully this can be another good depth creator of a genre vote. Somewhere up the road I think it would be nice to add a bit more by hitting both ska and reggae as standalone genres, but essentially combining 60s and 70s Jamaican music (my original idea for a genre title, but I thought it would leave out important non-Jamaican artists, of which there are a few)into one broader genre should be a good framing for where we're at right now.

I'm really looking forward to both the Song and Album genre votes this month. 70s Light Rock isn't something that I'd sit around and listen to for the most part (though I have been known to listen to Gordon Lightfoot of my own free will on occasion), but I agree that it's a neglected genre that merits attention and like I said last night it holds some childhood nostalgia value for me.

Posted by DarinRG on Tuesday, 03.8.16 @ 03:11am


DarinRG, would hope you would check out some stuff by Steel Pulse. Best 'old school' reggae I've found.

Also, check out Barrington Levy, Jackie Mittoo, The Itals, Black Uhuru, Third World, Burning Spear, Queen Ifrica, The Ethiopians, Zion, Bunny Ruggs, & UB40, among others.

The Grateful Dead - Anthem of the Sun (1968)
Train - Drops of Jupiter (2001)


Anyone who voted in this month's Album Project vote is eligible to participate in the tiebreaker. To participate, rank all 4 albums in order of preference. The highest-ranked album will receive 4 points, the second-highest 3 points and so on.

The 1 album that receives the most points will be inducted. In the event of a tie, the tie will be won by the album that receives the most first-place overall votes. If that doesn't resolve the tie, there will be another tiebreaker vote, involving the albums involved in the second tiebreaker.

The 3 albums that aren't inducted will be automatically nominated for the next vote that they're qualified to be included in. I don't think that any of the albums would qualify for this month's genre votes (Ska / Rocksteady / Reggae / Dub), though feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong, so that would be the April Album Project.


Voting will end at 10 PM Central on Thursday the 10th.

This month's genre is "Ska/Rocksteady/Reggae/Dub". I'm not sure what years this genre is supposed to be limited to, but the suggestion was the the genres be broken up after 1970, so until we get more input, we'll go with "1900-1970" and "1971-2014" and adjust as necessary. Please read the posts from the past few days to understand the definition of the genre.

Nominations are now open for the first of this month's two genre votes "Ska/Rocksteady/Reggae/Dub 1900-1970".

Voters can nominate two albums that they feel belong in this genre vote. If you feel that an album is nominated inappropriately, please lodge a protest. Any album that receives three protests will be disqualified from this genre vote.

There will be two days of nominations (nominations can be protested during nomination) and one day designated for review and protests.

Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on Thursday the 10th. Review will end and voting will open at 10 PM Central on Friday the 11th. There will then be five days of voting.

Thanks for the suggestions Paul. I enjoy Burning Spear, Black Uhuru and the Ethiopians quite a bit and I've listed to Steel Pulse and Third World a few times and like them just fine. Barrington Levy, Jackie Mittoo, The Itals, Queen Ifrica, Zion and Bunny Ruggs are all some new ideas for me to check out. As far as UB40 goes, growing up in the 80s they were pretty ubiquitous and I could handle never hearing Red, Red Wine ever again, but as you know, they had some great stuff if you dig a little deeper.

Why don't you join us this month. You could make a good contribution.

"I'm not sure what years this genre is supposed to be limited to, but the suggestion was the the genres be broken up after 1970, so until we get more input, we'll go with "1900-1970" and "1971-2014" and adjust as necessary."

Sorry, I wasn't able to be around yesterday, but this is fine. I know that there's some pioneering work from the 50s that fits the genre. Previous to that it gets a little fuzzy for me aside from understanding the foundation that American R&B and Soul provided for the Jamaicans.

Just a technical note in case it's inducted, The Wailing Wailers would be credited as "The Wailers" rather than "Bob Marley & the Wailers". Natty Dread (1975)was the first non-compilation credited as the latter.

Also, very strong ballot. Well done.

I just want to thank everyone who helped induct Paris 1919. This is the 1st album I've EVER nominated that was voted in!!

I promise not to do anything silly that would undermine the integrity of The Album Project going forward. It is clearly the crown jewel of all the projects currently operating here. If I do return, any nomination would be totally on the up and up.

FRL,

The name of the Sleater-Kinney album being inducted this month should be: Sleater-Kinney - The Woods (2005), not Sleater-Kinney - The Wood (2005). Sorry for the delayed post about it. I noticed it yesterday but forgot to mention it when I voted.

March 2016 Artist Album Nomination:

Prince- Around the World in a Day (1985)


To answer Jennifer's question, the ban is just for albums. If (and when, I'm sure it'll happen at some point) Prince is the selected artist for the Artist Vote in the Song Project, then his songs would be banned from being nominated for 6 months.

Each ban is for the respective project (Album Project or Song Project).

Since Prince is our selected choice for the Artist vote this month, I wanted to let everyone know that Prince announced today that he is writing an autobiography (he says it's "unconventional memoir").. This is major news and something I'll definitely have to read when it's released in Fall 2017. It's on Rolling Stone's website for more details.

"I'll admit that this genre isn't my area of expertise, but these albums show up at the top of a lot of the "Best Ska Albums" lists that I found online:"

Op Ivy - Energy is in bounds enough. It's also a very good album from a plenty respectable band. I'm not familiar with the Streetlight Manifesto album yet, but I'll give it a spin before I vote.

I think this ballot rounded out pretty well. It's heavy on important core genre artists and albums with a few more than credible revivalists and a couple good ouliers that still fit.

I'm just glad that nobody went for Reel Big Fish or No Doubt. I'd have been merciless about that. :)

Posted by Greg F on Tuesday, 03.22.16 @ 02:19am


Greg - As usual it's tough to make a firm commitment without seeing the whole ballot, but Wendy Carlos would likely be a shoe in for me. I've been wanting to put some focus on some seminal electronic and experimental acts outside of Krautrock and Wendy Carlos and that particular album are at the top of that list. I've also been thinking a lot about the Terry Riley albums In C and A Rainbow in Curved Air, which are both considered among the most important in that area, but I'll probably wait a couple months on that with most enthusiasm likely being focused on newly eligibles for the next few rounds.

Pretty much any of the Jazz and Exotica stuff on your list really grabs my attention and if I didn't get to it right away, I would soon.

The Magic Whip is one of my bigger 2015 priorities among the more high profile choices that will get the early focus. Most of my 2015 favorites that have a realistic shot are going to be later in the year type candidates.

Joe Jackson is someone that I usually get behind pretty quickly and there are quite a few on your list that I'll look into further.

I could see myself getting behind pretty much any of the genres that you listed at some point, but Afrobeat, Lounge/Exotica/Space Age Pop and Lesser Known Artists grab me the most and I'll usually make room on my ballot for an electronic genre.

I'd be perfectly fine with any of the artist vote candidates that you listed, but Captain Beefheart, Depeche Mode, King Crimson, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams and Tim Buckley enthuse me the most. Elton John, John Lennon and Paul McCartney would probably be lowest priority for me in this area, but I wouldn't complain about any of them either.

Posted by DarinRG on Tuesday, 03.22.16 @ 03:14am


Bob Weir- Ace (1972)
Chris Stapleton- Traveler (2015)*
Ashley Monroe- The Blade (2015)*
Jamie XX- In Colour (2015)

Love these albums.

Posted by Gassman on Tuesday, 03.22.16 @ 03:14am


Being the deadhead that I am, there's no way I can't go for Ace. It's got some of my favorite tunes on it, but I think some other Dead albums like Europe 72, In The Dark or even JGB's Cats Down Under The Stars should be higher priorities. Would also go for Jamie xx and Chris Stapleton for sure, and for 2015 albums I would also throw Wilco - Star Wars and Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell in the ring for people to consider.

Posted by Max on Tuesday, 03.22.16 @ 21:57pm


Greg from your genres/artists list, I’d support the following (no guarantees of course, but I’d be inclined to support):

Alanis Morisette- Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (1998)
Madonna- Confessions on a Dancefloor (2005)*
Bob Weir- Ace (1972)

I would have to listen to more of those 2015 albums you mentioned before I could support them.

Power Pop**
Indie Rock/Pop**
Soft Rock**
Motown**
Psychedelic Era, 1965-1975**

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 03.23.16 @ 17:23pm


Gassman- From that list, high priorities for me would be:

Kamasi Washington – The Epic
Father John Misty – I Love You, Honeybear
Courtney Barnett – sometimes I sit and think, and sometimes I just sit
The Mountain Goats – Beat The Champ
Sleater-Kinney – No Cities To Love
Lord Huron - Strange Trails
Torres – Sprinter
Africa Express – Africa Express Presents… Terry Riley’s In C Mali
Watkins Family Hour – Watkins Family Hour
Punch Brothers – The Phosphorescent Blues

I could also see myself getting behind:

Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp A Butterfly
The Decemberists – What A terrible World, What A Beautiful World
Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell
Alabama Shakes – Sound & Color
Kacey Musgraves – Pageant Material
Viet Cong – Viet Cong
Wilco – Star Wars
Grimes – Art Angels
The Chemical Brothers – Born In The Echo
Joanna Newsom – Divers
Laura Marling – Short Movie

Both of those lists are still growing and there's quite a bit on your list and lists that others have posted that I haven't checked out yet. A few others that range somewhere between "High Priority" and "Would Support" for me:

Linnea Olsson - Breaking and Shaking (Highly recommended listen for Kate Bush fans)

Leon Bridges - Coming Home (great old school R&B revival)

JD McPherson - Let the Good Times Roll (both of his albums are good 50s style RnR/R&B, without ever drowning in preciousness or cheap nostalgia)

Anna Von Hausswolff - The Miraculous(one of the most flat out unique and engaging artists from the Scandinavian singer-songwriter/neoclassical scene that's been so fertile this decade)

Julia Holter - Have You in My Wilderness
William Elliott Whitmore - Radium Death
Earl Sweatshirt - I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside
Blur - The Magic Whip
Foals - What Went Down
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress
Waxahatchee - Ivy Tripp
Jason Isbell - Something More Than Free
Beach House - Depression Cherry
High on Fire - Luminiferous
Richard Thompson - Still
Sunn O))) - Kannon
Chelsea Wolfe - Abyss
Calexico - Edge of the Sun
Gary Clark Jr. - The Story of Sonny Boy Slim
EL VY - Return to the Moon
Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell - The Traveling Kind
Kronos Quartet - Sunrise of the Planetary Dream Collector: Music of Terry Riley



Also, I know that there are other ambient fans around here. A few of my favorite Ambient albums of 2015:

Northaunt - Istid I-IV
Atrium Carceri - The Old City: Leviathan - OST
Max Richter - From Sleep
Klaus Schulze - La Vie Electronique 16
Kammarheit - The Nest
Steve Roach - Skeleton Keys

Prince - Controversy (1981)
Prince - Around The World In A Day (1985)
Prince - Art Official Age (2014)

Jimmy Cliff - Another Cycle (1971)
Lee "Scratch" Perry - Roast Fish Collie Weed & Corn Bread (1978)
Peter Tosh - Equal Rights (1977)

Peter Tosh - Equal Rights (1977)

Thanks to fellow posters for some good suggestions for next month,

Lax33

I'm sure your vote will be counted, but you may need to fix it first- you've voted for "Equal Rights" twice. Since I'm the guy who nominated it, I'm flattered, but you'll need to select a sixth choice.

Posted by AlexVoltaire on Wednesday, 03.23.16 @ 21:08pm


The rest of his ballot will be counted, even if Lax33 doesn't correct his mis-vote.

Posted by Darren on Wednesday, 03.23.16 @ 22:20pm

Wilco – Star Wars
Punch Brothers – The Phosphorescent Blues
Vince Staples – Summertime ’06

I’d also like to add the following albums to the discussion:

Future - 56 Nights
Clarence Clarity - No Now
The Weeknd - The Beauty Behind The Madness
Lupe Fiasco - Tetsuo & Youth

Posted by Max on Wednesday, 03.23.16 @ 23:31pm


Forgot to mention My Morning Jacket - The Waterfall. My highest priorities would be Currents, In Colour, ILYHB, The Epic, and TPAB.

Also, The Phosphorescent Blues needs some serious attention, too because there is next to no bluegrass representation in this project. The only album I can think of is the O Brother, Where Art Thou soundtrack. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's it. Would you guys support Bluegrass in the next genre vote?

P.S. sorry for two post in a row.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 03.24.16 @ 00:41am


Max- I'd enthusiastically support Bluegrass as a genre nominee. I remember having seen bluegrass albums and songs when we've done Country, but I don't recall ever having done a Bluegrass vote. I also think it's a genre that could merit a three round split, which we've done on rare occasions with genres that have a long chronology with multiple periods of relevance.

Posted by DarinRG on Thursday, 03.24.16 @ 02:33am


Black Uhuru - Red (1981)
Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey (1975)
Madness - One Step Beyond... (1979)
Operation Ivy - Energy (1989)
Peter Tosh - Equal Rights (1977)
The Specials - More Specials (1980)

Last cuts: Streetlight Manifesto, Toots & the Maytals, and Desmond Dekker.

Around the World in a Day (1985)
Art Official Age (2014)
Controversy (1981)
Diamonds and Pearls (1991)
Parade (1986)

The last cut was Gold Experience.

Parade (1986)

Gracious thanks to Jennifer and Gassman, both of whom were kind enough to send up flares, lay bread crumbs, shoot off fireworks, re-position GPS, target me via satellite, and call in the Marines.

Actually, they just re-posted my lists.

It was fun to try & jump in again, but I don't wish to bother anyone any more w/re-postings. I just have some bizarre technical issues w/that one page. I'll drop out of this, till I can figure out what's up w/all this.

I'll let Golden Earring provide my fade-out music:

"Oh, I'm slippin' into the Twilight Zone...

Rule Changes In 2016:

Starting in 2016, the years eligible for Album Project nominations are now 1900-2015.

Starting in 2016, albums released in 2015 will not be eligible for nomination until April. There will be a designated 2015 nomination available each month until March 2017. In April 2017, the designated nomination switches over to 2016.

Starting in 2016, elective (not mandatory as a result of an error in a cast ballot or necessary as a result of a missing song from the final list of nominated songs) vote switches are banned from all Album Project, Genre votes and Artist Project votes (including selection votes).

Starting with the February Artist Project Artist Selection Vote (there won't be one in January as a result of a tiebreaker in December), the selected artist will be banned from being nominated for any Album Project or Album Project Genre Project vote for the next 6 months (not counting the current month). To clarify, this begins next month, as the selection of Van Morrison took place prior to the new rule being applied.

Starting with the February Artist Project Artist Selection Vote, artists that receive 4 votes will automatically be nominated for the next Artist Project Artist Selection Vote. To clarify, this begins next month, as the December vote took place prior to the new rule being applied and there won't be a January vote as a result of the tiebreaker in the December vote.
__________________________________________

"Banned" Artists:

The following artists have been temporarily banned from all Album Project and Album Genre Project votes as a result of being selected for the Artist Vote:

David Bowie
