I remember someone did a rate for Best Songs ages ago and I still remember the meltdowns from the reveal :dies:

If we get enough submissions we will do a Top 100.

I think the last time ATRL did a best albums rate, Homogenic won and there definitely were some non commercial choices there so I wouldn't be so sure! it all depends on who participates.

I hosted that rate, it omitted 21st century albums and would look a lot different if we didn't. That & we promo'd the rate to as many users as possible, I think most of the people that submitted no longer post here as well.

Done :gaycat1:

 

I put my top 3 favorite albums at the top and the rest kinda in random order. Only put female albums to compensate for how they are usually snubbed in these publications lists. Only did a maximum of 3 albums per artist as well.
