However, if it starts Album - Artist or has a number at the beginning, it won't be alphabetized properly. Similarly, a " : " is ordered differently than a " - " would be, so there cannot be any colons, which I've already seen on at least two lists.

Basically, it's a pain in the ass.
This is why the guys who run the Desert Island competitions are so anal about everyone submitting their lists in their pre-determined format. If you send a list in in any other format, it's immediate disqualification.

Exactly.

But I've already bitched about using multiple artists, live albums, compilations, etc. You guys can enter your lists in any format you please.

I remember liking a couple of songs from Tiny Music a few years ago. It just comes across as too derivative for me now.

No problem with posting my list, though the latter half will be ridiculed severely if people actually look at it. I don't have that many albums.

Choosing three Bowie albums and then ordering them was very tough. In the end I chose Ziggy, Aladdan Sane and Low and ordered them thus.

My list will be in in about half an hour.

Awesome.

Also, the majority of interesting discussion will probably be due to the individual lists being posted, so I am certainly all for it.

Kala is perhaps untested by time seeing that it was only released last year, but I feel I can't really let this obscure the fact that I love the hell out of this album, And I don't think that my list has that many traditional classics on it anyway.

I'm envisioning some similarly hilarious reactions and commentary. Plus, more outsiders will be attracted to the thread if it appears to be busy.
Thanks, MelonLemon. This is going to be great!

My list is pretty near completion although there's a few more albums I want to listen to that might make the list and replace some of the Artists with 3 albums

I feel bad for all the unknown or non-popular artists I have on my list no one else will have

Bands No One Else Will Have: The Boomtown Rats, Director, Aslan, KT Tunstall, Nobou Uematsu, Zoe Keating...am I wrong?

I'd give permission for mine to be posted....

Anonymity might be the way to go, in case some folk get sensitive about their taste. It might make it a wee bit of fun guessing who's list is who's.
