The INTERFERENCE 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

Well, folks...I've had this idea a few weeks ago....but I was waiting until the end of the year to post it.
The idea is pretty clear: let's see which albuns are considered the "greatest" by Interference members!

I know, 500 is a whole lot of albuns, but to make sure this list will work, here are the rules:

-Make a list of 100 albuns you consider the greatest (Yes, I know it's a lot, but it's necessary for the list to work.)
-You can post it here, PM me or e-mail me: veio91vzc@gmail.com
-Each album will receive a score, based on its position in your lists: An album that is placed first in a list will score 100 points, a second place will score 99 points and so it goes. Don't worry, I'll do the math. And with a decent number of people posting here, a tie is something that probably won't happen. But if it happens, I'll see which of the tied albuns appears in most lists.
-You won't be able to post albuns that were released after December 31, 2008 in your lists.
-You can't make corrections in your lists way after you post it.
-You'll be able to make me your lists until March 31, 2009.

I'll be posting here the definitive list on April 2, 2009.

I hope y'all liked the idea and please make your lists, cause I think this will be cool. I love lists and if you do too, I hope you help me here.
By the way, I'll be posting my own list here soon, but I wanted to start the thread asap, so it's not here right now.
If somthing is not clear, please ask (my english sucks, sorry.)

And that's all, folks!

So, basically, it's exactly the same as this:

Interference's Top 100 Albums of All Time - Sign Up And Discussion Thread

Except on a larger scale?

Must have missed the first go-round.

I'd be surprised if we even manage to get points for 500 different albums, let alone enough points for each to separate them apart.

Maybe if there were 100 more regular posters in B&C.

People will be posting here until March 31, so it's just in April 2 that I'll be able to post the results.

And with that amount of time I think it's possible. C'mon, if you don't like the idea, just don't post here. But let's have some fun, ok?
And 500 is a whole lot better than 100.

I have a top 50 lying around somewhere. I'm sure I could tack another 50 onto it.

Have fun tabulating the results. That's all I have to say. Putting together the top 100 was difficult enough, but 500? Good Lord.

I'm in. I realize we just did it but this is on an even larger scale. And besides, my Top 50 has already changed a bit. And it's always fun making lists!
