But yet they will review Justin Timberlake because they think he's doing something interesting with music.

They also review alot of hip-hop, which isn't indie rock either, but still represents what they consider vital music being made.

The line is fuzzy, but once you know where it is, it makes sense.

I also doubt they get revenue from reviewing the big albums mentioned. That makes no sense. If they had banner ads, maybe.
They don't review Dixie's, Niceklback and Akka Dakka cause the fans of these artists aren't inclined to want to read or care what a critic has to say about the artist.

Impy's Annual Best-of-the-Year Point Distribution Tally Nonsense - Please Participate

Last year, we had a thing where everyone was given 100 points to distribute among 15 albums, not to exceed 15 points per. We tallied all these up to come up with a comprehensive list of B&C's favorite albums of the year.

You can rate however many albums you want. Just use up your 100 points and don't give more than 15 to any one album. This is a fun thing to do and it yields interesting results. If you already have a best-of list, this will take no time at all.

I'd like to have the results in to Anu on the 30th, so I'm going to make the cutoff 8 PM GMT (3 PM EST, 2 PM CST, etc). PM me with your list and points, email me, or post them in this thread.


Thanks in advance, gang.



Short instructions:

1. Cut a hole in a box

2. Make a list of your top 15 favorite albums of the year.

3. You have 100 points to distribute as you see fit to your albums. You may give no album more than 15 points.

4. Send them to me via PM or posting in this thread.

5. ???

6. Profit!





NOTE: I know they are all separate releases, but for the sake of variation, don't include both Fleet Foxes and Sun Giant. Also the same for Viva La Vida and Prospekt's March. I'll be grouping them all together anyway.

You have both been tallied.


And for the record, no decimals. I don't trust them.

Okey dokey, folksy wolksies: I collapsed my previous 'best of' thread into this one. Please note, though, that only new lists will get counted, which means all y'all previous posters are invited to 'revise and resubmit' (as we professorly types like to say) your lists in accordance with IMPY13's brilliant scoring system. List on!
