  1. Alternative pop saw a massive rise in popularity in 2021, especially among female artists. Many newcomers made waves in the alternative music scene; from the likes of Clairo and Arlo Parks, to Japanese Breakfast and Wolf Alice. However, even among the veteran, “Tumblr era” girls, there was a lot of noise. Lana Del Rey, Halsey, Lorde and MARINA all came back with huge releases in the year. Lana Del Rey returned with both her sixth and seventh studio albums in 2021. “Chemtrails Over The Country Club” and “Blue Banisters” were released during March and October of the year, respectively. Both were met with critical acclaim, however, were seen as a slight disappointment after the release of her 2019 magnum opus, “Norman ******* Rockwell”. Lana stated that “so much of the album” pertains to her “stunning girlfriends” and “beautiful siblings” about “Chemtrails”. On the other hand, “Blue Banisters” has been described as Lana’s “breakup record”. Both peaked within the top 10 of the Billboard 200, with “Chemtrails…” just missing the top spot and debuting at #2. Halsey released her forth studio album “If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power” in August 2021. She described the album as a “concept album about the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth”. Many critics believe this to be Halsey’s best project yet and it sits at a favourable score of 80 out of 100 on Metacritic. The album peaked at #2, upon release, on the Billboard 200 and is nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 64thGrammy Awards. After Lorde’s four-year hiatus, she finally returned with her long awaited third studio album, entitled “Solar Power”. The titular track was released as the lead single on 11th June 2021, it was met with critical acclaim upon release, however, some fans were sceptical with Lorde’s stark change in sound compared to her adored sophomore album, “Melodrama”. After two more pre-release singles, the album dropped on 20th August. It was met with mixed reception from fans and critics alike. While some hardcore fans adored the contrast “Solar Power” had compared to her previous work, others yearned for the old Lorde to comeback with her signature dark sound. The album still managed a respectable top 5 debut on the Billboard 200 despite many setbacks. MARINA returned on 11th June 2021 with her fifth studio album, “Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land”. This album had the longest run up to its release out of all included in this rate, having four pre-release singles, the first being released in November 2020. The lyrics on the album are described as having more “vim and attitude” than those on her forth studio release, “Love + Fear”. Many fans saw this album as a true return to form for MARINA as it draws many similarities to her first two beloved albums. The album managed a top 20 peak on the UK charts and garnered critical acclaim, holding a 77 score on Metacritic. The song list in the spoiler below includes all the songs included in the rate in a DM friendly format: Ballots are due (tentatively) by February 20th 2022, which gives you four weeks to listen and rate all 68 songs. I am open to extensions if needed, though. The Participants The Results
  2. What happened to R&B naysayers may ask? Nothing at all. Hip-Hop may have become the most dominant genre in recent years, but let’s not overlook the strides R&B, including all its many sub-genres have taken on the airwaves. Since the last time we’ve met, R&B was starting to have an increasingly regular presence on top 40 radio. While hip-hop and dance stayed at pop music's center since 2017, R&B managed to creep its way back into the mainstream. In ways both satisfying and unpredictable leading to a full-on tidal wave in the years to come. Timeline: The genre maintained the upward course over the last few years. The artists in this rate are more reflective of the culture’s Netflix & Chill generation, while also bringing important social and political issues to the forefront. Sometimes a vibe is all we need, but you’ll still get a sprinkle of impeccable vocals, baby makers and genre bending sounds that we appreciated in 2012. We will be rating some of the songs from artists that kept the genre alive on the charts and acclaim fronts! Rules There will be 76 songs in total. There with be 26 artists with at min. 3 songs to represent their string of Eps and LPs. Rate every song a score from 1-10 and send me your ratings by PM. You are allowed three 11s, two 10.5s and three 0s only. Though they cannot all go to one artist. You cannot give any artist all 10s either, diversify your ratings. You can use decimal points if you wish, but only up to one decimal place. You can add comments about your favorite (and least favorite) tracks! Take your time, but not too much. Feel free to scaffold and send these in sets/half if need be. Deadlines All ballots must be submitted in full by Wednesday 2nd February 2022.

    BTS Discography Rate | VOTE NOW!

    Hello and welcome to ATRL's first ever BTS Discography Rate! Why is KillingYourCareer hosting this? On September 12, 2021, I was in my town's record store to buy Lana Del Rey's spoken poetry CD, when I saw BTS' 'For You' Japanese CD on a shelf. I'd been thinking about it for a while, but that's when I decided that I would listen to BTS' entire discography once I got home. In four nights, I listened to all their songs, and loved their discography to the point they have since crossed 2,000 plays on my last.fm, also becoming my 2nd most played artist of the year according to Spotify Wrapped! The fact that I have a soft spot for Jimin might or might not have convinced me to love their music even more. What will we be rating? We'll be rating 149 songs: their entire Korean language output, as well as the original Japanese songs. Japanese versions of already-existing Korean songs, features, short intros and spoken/instrumental interludes will be excluded. Only the main version of each song will be rated. What are the rules? - You must rate all the songs between 0 and 10. I encourage ranking all the songs from your favorite to least favorite and spreading out the 0-10 spectrum among them in order to maximize impact on the results, without trolling or blatant sabotaging. Up to one decimal allowed. - You may award a special 11 score to your three favorite songs. - Ties will be broken. If two or more songs get the same average score, the one with the highest score will be prioritized. For example: if songs A and B both get a 7.5 average and song A has two 10's while song B only has one, song A will be ranked higher than song B. - Once you've awarded all your scores, PM them to me here on ATRL and don't post them publicly. - The deadline is February 5, 2022, so you have plenty of time to listen to and rate the 9 hour, 30 minute long selection! You can use my Spotify playlist with all the songs put in chronological order. N.B.: the songs "Path", "Sea" and "With Seoul" aren't available on Spotify, so here are the YouTube links! Happy voting! Participants: 1. @KillingYourCareer 2. @K$Ellie 3. @CristianGarcia 4. ... PM-friendly list (copy and paste in my PMs and add your votes):
  5. Welcome to The Sound of The 1975 // The Singles Rate // The 1975 is a band from Manchester, England comprised of four members, Matthew Healy, Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald and George Daniel. They have four studio albums, all four of which peaked at #1 in the UK. They have seen both massive success and acclaim both in the UK and worldwide, with sold out arena tours by their second album. This is the first rate I’m hosting on ATRL so I’m happy to be able to do it on my favorite band. Hopefully, I can find enough fellow fans on here to make this rate not a flop. We will be rating 34 songs by The 1975. This includes 7 songs from each of their albums as well as 6 other non-album tracks and features. In my opinion, their singles are their best songs and highlight all the best parts of their discography so I don’t feel like a whole discography rate was necessary, plus that would get less participants. The due date for now is Friday 14th January 2022, but I don't mind extending if people need more time. The Songs The Rules 1. Please listen to all 34 songs in the playlist below. 2. Score each song out of 10 based on how much you enjoy the song. You can give TWO songs a score of 11 and ONE song a score of 0. Save these for the songs you want to help out the most (or sabotage). 3. Please only give your songs scores with ONE decimal place, for example use 7.5, not 7.58 or 4.2895. 4. You can add comments to your scores as well to make the results more interesting when they’re revealed. You can add comments to some songs, all or none, it’s up to you. 5. Send your list of rated songs to me via DM. Have fun! Apple Music Playlist The Participants The Results

    Rihanna Singles Rate

    ⚓ Welcome to ATRL's Ultimate Rihanna Singles Rate ⚓ As she was recently named the biggest hitmaker of the 21st century by Billboard and with a new album (likely) coming in 2022, now is the perfect time to rate her iconic collection of singles - which includes 14 #1s and 31 top 10s. Features will be included. Promo singles will only be included if they were released in "Single" format on iTunes (i.e. "Wait Your Turn" counts; "Sex With Me" doesn't). 1. Rate all the songs between 1-10. 2. You may give 2 songs a 11 score and 2 other songs a 0 score. 3. Only 0.5 decimals are allowed (e.g. 7.5 / not 7.8). 4. Send me your ballots via PM on here, not in the thread. 5. Don't troll, don't sabotage 6. Comments are allowed (and welcome) DEADLINE: JANUARY 28th, 2022 PM-Friendly List PLAYLIST:
  7. Singer, Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, actress (well...), producer, HSN correspondent, Songbird Supreme, NYT best-selling author, Queen of Christmas, doesn't know who JLo is (who does), Queen of Remixes, Melodyne top 0.1% subscriber, Queen of Melisma, one of the most successful female artists of all time with 19 Billboard Hot 100 number-one hits (which is difficult to get, not everyone has that to their credit), Queen of Shade, prone to heading to the background singers when Aretha sings, taustin13 bait, Mother of Lambs, Razzie-winner, Skinny Legend. Mariah has one of the all-time greatest discographies, and it's time again for the perpetually-messy Lambs to rank her albums. Yes, it's sad yet predictable that I'm reinventing past incidents for my promotional gain, but it's been two years since our last album-only rate and it's time for more intra-base fighting about which albums are her best/worst. Let's be festive and mildly offensive, dahhlings, but no sabotaging. Any ballots with obvious sabotaging will be thrown out. Participants will have until December 8th (at 12:00am EST) to submit scores. FORM HERE: --- --- Our 2019 edition that I hosted and Butterfly won can be found here: https://atrl.net/forums/topic/263777-mariah-discography-rate-butterfly-reigns-results-post3/
  8. Welcome to the 100 Best Dance Songs of All Time Rate inspired by Slant's 2020 list publishing. We'll be listening to, rating, revisiting or discovering dance songs across multiple decades (from the 70s to the 10s) to see which song ATRL considers to be the pinnacle of the genre. Everything dance related from disco (electro-disco, boogie, euro-disco, nu-disco), to electronic dance music (house, electro, techno, trance) to dance-pop will be covered. Among the cult/underground staples there are also tons of household legends and even "MPGs" included so hopefully this will be more inviting for the participants who want to partake. For further inspiration and more information about each of the songs and their history/influence on dance music, you can use the link below https://www.slantmagazine.com/music/100-greatest-dance-songs/ You may or may not agree with their ranking and that's okay since this is our take. However, we're doing a different approach. Da Rulebook: -For this rate, along with the usual rating the songs 1-10, you're also allowed a 10.25, a 10.50, a 10.75, and an 11 to your favorite song(s). You may also give a 0 if you want to, but only one. -Pm me with your completed ratings. Commentary is allowed and optional. If you have a change of heart of some of the songs, i'll allow a revision before the deadline. -No Grumpy Old Trolls allowed (i.e ranking only dance songs from 00s-10s +10 and everything else 1-2, cuz if you do this or "genuinely" feel that way then idk how you got here) Initial Deadline: September 30th since there's a lot to cover.

    This was POP 2020 (Part 2) | All Results Posted

    Hello all and welcome to This Was Pop 2020! Following on from @touya kinomoto‘s rate at the end of last year, we will now be looking at 5 other albums that 2020 gifted us. Folklore and Future Nostalgia were part of @supaspaz‘s TW2020 rate, hence their absence here. At the start of the year Bad Bunny dropped YHLQMDLG (Yo Hago Lo Que Me Da La Gana), developing on his original Latin trap style by incorporating more of an “old-school” reggaeton twist. He was closely followed by The Weeknd and his Grammy snubbed album, After Hours. Exploring a more synth-pop/electropop sound, whilst still retaining some of his R&B roots, the album was praised by critics as a reinvention of sorts for the Weeknd. Not wanting to risk keeping her music saved in one spot for any extended period of time, Charli XCX released How I’m Feeling Now, an album written entirely in lockdown, which further delved into her signature electropop and experimental pop style of music. Ariana Grande returned with the somewhat suggestively titled Positions, continuing her blend of pop and R&B whilst covering themes such as sex, love and relationships. Finally, just as the year was coming to an end, Taylor Swift surprise released the sister album to future AOTY winner Folklore, Evermore, further exploring a more indie-folk and minimalistic style. Bad Bunny - YHLQMDLG The Weeknd - After Hours (Deluxe) Charli XCX - How I'm Feeling Now Ariana Grande - Positions (Deluxe) Taylor Swift - Evermore (Deluxe) I've included the deluxe editions of albums that have them for the sake of completeness. So, with that all being said, onto the rules: Rules: Give every song a score from 1-10 and send me your ratings by PM. You can give three 11s and three 0s. You can use decimal points if you wish, but 1 d.p. only. You can add comments. While this is not a requirement, I’d love to see what you have to say about your favourite (and least favourite) tracks! All ballots must be submitted by Sunday 22nd August 2021. Have fun! PM friendly list: Participants:
  10. A parallel to @touya kinomoto rate Oh This Was Pop 2020: OH Sh!t: At Least You Tried Welcome to @Insanity's very first rate on ATRL! It’s been a year for boys of pop who tried to put out albums but either failed commercially or critically. Atop the list is Justin Bieber’s early 2021 album Justice. Coming from his lul in 2020 of Changes, Justice is a step up and a fantastic album. Currently Justice holds a 63 metacritic score which is up from Changes 58. Justice is predicted to sell 130-140k SPS which is down from Changes 231k, a major drop. The second album was Wonder by Shawn Mendes which peaked at #1 and sold about 95k copies SPS which is down from self-titled 182k but it did not have tour bundles. The album was also a little lower critically from self-titled with a 65 compared to 73 which is not panned or acclaimed but generally favorable. T he third album is Nobody is Listening by ZAYN which was an improvement in charting at #44 while his previous album peaked at #61. The album received a 63 Metacritic score which is generally favorable reviews. The final album is Spaceman by Nick Jonas is his third solo album and first since 2016. Spaceman has garnered a 61 Metacritic score to generally favorable reviews and will peak at #13 on the Billboard 200 with 24k copies sold.

In Part 2, we will be rating all of the songs that reached #1 on the Billboard R&B chart in 1993, 1994, 1995, and 1996 featuring ATRL favourites such as Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, and Tevin Campbell! It has 3 years since the Part One rate - https://atrl.net/forums/topic/132256-billboard-rb-1s-the-rate-part-one-90-92/ The Rules: 1. There is a total of 54 songs in this rate. You must score every song from 0 to 10. One lucky song can receive an 11 from you, and one lucky song can receive a 10.5 from you, if you so wish. 2. PM your scores to me. Don't post them in the thread! 3. Decimals of up to 2 places are allowed. This means I will allow a 9.5, a 9.25, but not a 9.358359392919758. 4. The deadline is midnight GMT on August 30th. There are a lot of songs, but that should be enough time to listen to everything and rate each song accordingly. 5. Commentaries are appreciated, but not compulsory. It's always nice to read why someone gave a 0 to a song, or why it got your 11, or why it got a 9 but not a 10. 6. No trolling! If I so much as even suspect you're trying to rig the rate, I will refuse to count your scores. Songs - Spotify Playlist -
