regarding all the pf discussion, i've only had a chance to listen to dsotm and the wall so far...dsotm wasn't that good to me. it had a couple songs on it i liked, but the rest weren't great.

oh, and since sting's been brought up, i forgot to include him. i would've included nothing like the sun for sure, maybe the soul cages too. i did remember the police though. zenyatta mondatta's been my favourite police album for years.

aaaaand as far as repeat artists, my top 10 doesn't have any repeats, and glancing at my list, i don't think the top 20 does either. i tried to be diverse but still represent people i liked. you know, like i didn't go out of my way to prevent having albums by the same artists ranked highly. as far as my list being representative of my tastes, it was when i sent it in. i'd probably submit something different today, and i know i would in six months. but like i told lemel when i sent it in, i wanted to hurry up and do it so i wouldn't sit and pick at it. if i think about ranking stuff too much i drive myself crazy.

You take out San Tropez and Seamus and Meddle is fucking close to perfect. They wreck the flow. Try listening to One of These Days > Pillow of Winds > Fearless > Echoes. It's much better.

I'll keep it quiet. Don't think Rob or the others could handle it

Right now I'm finishing my list up and...... I think I may have to scrap my original plan of including 3 albums by U2, REM, Led Zep and Floyd... I think it's gonna be only 2 from all those bands... and 3 from the Beatles... so yeah, no Pop or ATYCLB! Oh btw, this is fucking difficult! Maybe the most difficult list I ever attempted in my life!

PS: I'm trying to be more diverse too like Khan, than include the same artists over and over again.

I looked at the list more as 50 of my favorite albums, and that meant that there are multiple albums by the same artists in the top 10.

I didn't want to try and mix it up just for the sake of "diversifying." They're the artists I've loved the most, for the longest, and it would then make sense that some of their albums are my all-time favorites.

So I don't understand your reasoning there. While Echoes is obviously a classic, Shine On You Crazy Diamond is even more so, yet it's length in relation to the album is a negative while Echoes isn't?
There are 5 songs on Meddle that aren't Echoes. There are 3 songs on WYWH that aren't Shine On You Crazy Diamond. While it doesn't make all that large of a difference time-wise, SOYCD absolutely kills the momentum of the album due to its placement, and the album lacks variety because of it.

A better question for you to ask me would be why I prefer Animals over WYWH, though they're structured similarly. Simply put, I just prefer the songs. Animals slays for its entire duration, while there are a couple of duds on WYWH that I could do without. Pretty simple, but I think those two albums are more comparable.

Not in the top 10, but I've got repeats in my top 20. Pink Floyd and PJ Harvey are my most-represented, with three albums in the top 20.

So when will the final thread be up? By hwhat time tomorrow? It's 9:45pm as I post this now.

I did like Khan did, in that I tried not to fret to much, didn't spend too much time on it, it made it much easier
