  1. Welcome to Ice Princess: The Azealia Banks Discography Rate! Azealia Banks might be one of the most controversial rappers of all time, but the talent, that she has, is unquestionable. She began releasing music through MySpace, being signed to XL Recordings. After releasing her debut single "212", that received universal acclaim, she secured a recording contract with Interscope Records, and later dropped her EP "1991". Her first mixtape "Fantasea" was out shortly after that. After being delayed for over two years, she released her debut album "Broke with Expensive Taste" via Prospect Park without any prior announcement, it was given positive reviews and was named one of the best rap albums of the year. Her latest release is her second mixtape "Slay-Z". This rate contains 79 tracks that were released by herself or via a record label. Unofficial remixes like "Work Bitch" and outros like "Azealia Skit" will not be ranked. 1991 212 (featuring Lazy Jay) Along the Coast Aquababe Atlantis ATM Jam (featuring Pharrell) Bad Girls (Danja N.A.R.S.

  3. Michael Joseph Jackson. Prince Rogers Nelson. Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou. Three men who dominated pop music in the '80s, with their unique, distinctive sounds, bold songs, and charismatic, magnetic public personas. But things have changed; are they able to translate the same levels of success and quality to the new decade? Between September 1990 and November 1991, these three men would make their long-awaited musical comebacks. George's sophomore album, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, came first. A shock for listeners and reviewers at the time, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 showcased a more acoustic sound and more introspective and sombre lyrics than its predecessor, Faith, as an attempt for George to be taken more seriously as a songwriter and an artist. Then came Diamonds And Pearls, which was Prince's first non-soundtrack release since 1988's Lovesexy. Diamonds And Pearls also saw the debut of Prince's new backing band, The New Power Generation. Cited as one of the best-selling albums of all time, Michael's Dangerous was the last of the three to be released. His first album since 1987's Bad, Dangerous saw Michael trying to continue the monster success of the previous decade by incorporating new jack swing into his songs, as well as, once again, covering a variety of topics in his lyrics to continue to demonstrate his growth as an artist. These men came to fight once more, and fight they... Well, that's open to interpretation. In this rate, we shall be deciding, once and for all, which song from these albums is the best. Thirty-seven songs stand before you (once again!); only one can emerge as the winner. SONGS: THE RULES: 1. There is a total of 37 songs in this rate. You must score every song from 0 to 10. One lucky song can receive an 11 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 9.3434353690132. 4. The deadline is 10pm GMT on November 19th. There's YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, etc., so locating and listening to the music should be pretty easy, especially as even Prince is on streaming now. No excuses! 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. 7. Have fun! PM-FRIENDLY LIST:
  4. On Feb. 16, 2007, the Princess of Pop hit a bizarre and troubling new low. As rabid paparazzi captured the scene through the front window—like an animal on display at the zoo—Britney Spears walked into a Tarzana hair salon and shaved her head bald. (The image only grew more shocking in the coming days as a grimacing Britney, looking utterly deranged, attacked a photographer's car with an umbrella.) Eight months later, she would release her fifth studio album, Blackout, a stunning meld of pop hooks and emerging electronic dance sounds. Her rocky return to the top of the charts presaged, the following year, one of the most epic comebacks in music history. It's Britney, bitch! Who else but the legend herself could forge from such a hellacious year her magnum opus? Maligned by many in its time for emerging amid Britney's intense personal troubles—which would continue to deepen as she lost custody of her children and eventually was placed in a temporary psychiatric hold—Blackout was nevertheless an immediate sensation. Its slick and sexy innovation enraptured fans, while the public at large gawked at the cultural circus surrounding its release, from an infamous VMA performance to "Leave Britney alone," the viral video cry heard 'round the world. And the esteem has only grown in the decade since, as a new generation of critics and artists recognized and lauded the record not just for its own merits, but also for its broader impact, particularly as a star-making breakthrough for producer Danja. Few places have a more fanatical appreciation than ATRL, which often ranks Blackout as the forum's favorite album. So in celebration of the tenth anniversary this month, we are undertaking a definitive ranking of its track list. To participate, please complete this quick song sorter and PM me your results by this Sunday, Oct. 22. Those lists will be combined to determine a universal ranking, which will be unveiled in a countdown event. (Check out the previous rankings of Emotion, Loose and Spice to see how it works.) Feel free to use this thread to advocate for your track of choice or to share your memories from the past decade of Blackout. Fifteen lucky guest writers will also be chosen to explain why their favorite song is the true highlight of the album, so let me know if you are interested.

  7. Welcome to the 21st Century One Hit Wonder Rate Pt.2! After the roaring success of the first edition, I am delighted to bring you more one hit wonders to rate! Featuring songs from 2000-2016, 80 tracks will be put against eachother to see who will come out victorious, joining Gotye ft. Kimbra - Somebody That I Used To Know as winners of the OHW Rate! Most tracks are US one hit wonders, the majority also being WW but occasionally a UK or European one hit wonder might pop up for your enjoyment, after all not all ATRL members are from the US! There'll be artists in this rate that will've had more than one hit in a few countries but the song featured in this rate will be their only 'hit' worldwide or in the US. This rate is mostly based on a worldwide scale; not on a relative one. One thing also to clear up, you may notice both Cee Lo Green and Gnarls Barkley feature, as they're seperate acts, they both count. • Songs must be rated on a 1-10 scale. • You are allowed to rate one song a 0 and one song an 11. • You are allowed to use decimal points, but they must be up to the tenth place. • You must use the PM Friendly List to PM me your votes. • No trolling. You have until Saturday 4th November to send your votes, which is exactly four weeks. The rate should start shortly after (within 24 hours) Please also send me your timezone within your PM Friendly List so I can work out the best time to reveal the results. Enjoy and please feel free to campaign for your favourites, tag people to join it or just have a chin wag! If you missed Pt. 1, you can re live it here. YouTube Playlist Spotify Playlist

  9. They debated and decided the 100. Now it's our turn to re-rank the hundred songs they believe to have the most catchy and the most iconic choruses since 2000. Welcome to my first ever rate! We will be recreating the list Billboard came up with. As much as possible, we are only rating the songs' choruses. If you feel you have to take into consideration the whole body of work, you may but it really goes against the idea of this rate, right? • Rate the CHORUS of every track from 1-10 and send me a private message with your scores. Use the PM-friendly list below. It took me quite a while to type all those songs so use it. • Decimals are NOT allowed. We are old enough so it is time for us to be decisive. If you will still try, I will round it to the nearest whole number. • Since we are rating 100 songs here, you can give two 11s. You read that right! Two 11s for the two songs that you think that has the best choruses. • Similarly, you can also give two 0s to the songs with the worst choruses. • To make this rate more interesting, you are allowed to give only ten 10s and ten 1s too. Don't even try to sneak in more than 10 of either scores because I will NOT count them. My tip: use them wisely. • Of course, no trolling is allowed. Your ballot will automatically discarded and no second chances will be given. Also no campaigning anywhere. Let people decide on their own. • Comments are welcome and some of those will be featured during the reveal. PM-FRIENDLY LIST SPOTIFY PLAYLIST DEADLINE OF SUBMITTING YOUR BALLOTS IS ON SEPTEMBER 8TH! Huge thanks to the good sis @prézli for the graphics!
  10. Welcome to the Kesha Essentials Rate We'll be ranking all of Kesha's album tracks + some other non-album songs.

  11. INTRODUCTION Welcome to the Linkin Park Singles Rate. In light of Chester Bennington's tragic death, this would be nice to do. There are 34 songs (many of them modern classics) that clock in at just over two hours, so I hope we can get a decent number of participants! Every single from their studio albums is included as well as proper singles from other albums, such as remix albums, collaboration albums, and movie soundtracks. In the playlist and PM list, all singles, including "standalones" (i.e. New Divide, Not Alone, etc.) are listed chronologically. I'm excited to partake because even I have not heard some of these songs yet! RULES 1. Rate EVERY song from 1-10. 2. Decimals are allowed at +/- 0.1 increments, so 5.1, 4.7, 8.7 are all allowed rates. If you give a rate with more digits, it will be rounded to the nearest tenth. 3. One song may be rated a 0. One song may be rated an 11. 4. After listening and rating each song, send the rate to me in a PM. 5. The deadline is September 29, 2017, but this is arbitrary.

  13. I am your host MP2K and I welcome you all to THE NEW WAVE OF R&B PART 2. Traditional R&B may not be as prominent on the charts as it use to be, but the R&B genre is forever evolving and there’s always discussion about — where it’s at, where it’s going, who is doing it right, who is doing it weird, and who is even doing it at all. People call it alternative R&B, also referred to as PBR&B, a term meant to be a joke but used by music journalists to describe a stylistic alternative to contemporary R&B. Whichever the label, many artists categorized into this sub-genre find the labels very offense. Well, guess what? They’re gonna have to deal with it as we’re here to rate them. It all began in 2011 when a new wave of R&B artists emerged with uber left-field music and garnered supporters looking for new R&B music to get into that was different from the same ole. Now in 2017 this “alternative R&B” seems to be the norm; a phenomenon in music. The Weeknd and Frank Ocean are on top in the music industry in their own respective ways, influencing some of the more mainstream artists such as Usher, Drake, Rihanna and Beyoncé to dabble into such a sound. Three years ago we rated sixteen 2nd tier artists of this "new wave" (popular acts The Weeknd, Frank Ocean and Miguel were excluded). Each of those artists were some of the most relevant and fresh faces at the time, most have went on to continue to release music ‘til this day, and some went on to scoring top 40 hits (ie. Tinashe). R&B is brimming with fresh ideas and experiments gone right and it shows no signs of withering away thanks to these new emerging artists we’re about to rate for the second installment. Here is another batch of artists that are continuing to make the 2010’s pass in history as the decade R&B became “great again.” Disagree? Then I'm awaiting these lashings: Results: Post navigation linked 75. Bryson Tiller, "Sorry Not Sorry" 74. PARTYNEXTDOOR, "Over Here" 73. The Internet, "Cocaine" 72. PARTYNEXTDOOR, "Recognize" 71.

  14. Hey everybody. Three years ago, I did a rate of a lot of the major girls of the 1980s - well, major, but not Whitney/Madonna/Janet major. I included a LOT of heavyweights, but there are still some left to sort through - let's say we start today? We'll be going in a lot of different directions - Adult Contemporary, Pop/Rock, Country, Rap, R&B, and, my favorite, DANCE. Plus PWL. Can you even believe it? Who's here? VOTES DUE SEPTEMBER 1st.
  15. Very simple, just put what you think is the best thing / band / singer whateves to come from the country above you. I'll start; Denmark
  16. THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY VELVET ROPE RANKING This year marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most dynamic albums in the history of music, and arguably Janet's best album of her entire career!! The album regarded as the blueprint for pop artists transitioning to a darker and rebellious sound. The album considered as the precursor to the development of alternative R&B. Covered a wide array of controversial topics. So as a part of this honor, we will have ourselves a little two-part Velvet Rope Rate: songs and interludes ranking. Rules: - There will be two separate lists: songs and interludes. - Have a songs list from 1-19 and interlude list from 1-7, and rank it highest to lowest. - #1 song will be worth 19 points and down to 1 point with #19. -Feel free to add comments by each. Makes it more interesting. - No trolling or disrespect allowed! Janet deserves respect!! - PM each list of ranks to me by September 30, and the rate will begin the next week on the anniversary! - Enjoy the queen's album! SONG SORTER! INTERLUDE SORTER! Thanks to the help of the future "AYNAF" winner, @Reverie! As a special treat, nineteen of the total participants will be chosen to be presented with their own reason as to why their favorite song is their special one for the past 20 years this pioneering album has been. So when you PM me your scores, feel free to add a short essay. It may be picked! The same applies for the interludes and the lucky 5! The Interlude Ranking will start on October 6th! The Songs Ranking will start the next day on the anniversary!! PM Friendly Lists: Participants Results @Ace Reject

  18. Very few names are as synonymous with pop music as ABBA. The legendary Swedish pop group formed in 1972, and, aided by their Eurovision win in 1974 (becoming the most successful group in the history of the contest, a record they hold to this day), they went on to dominate the charts worldwide for almost a decade. Since disbanding in 1982, their music has continued to be successful, managing to stand the test of time, and their legacy is still palpable in the modern pop landscape. During their time as a group, ABBA released eight albums, as well as countless compilations capitalising on their immense success. Now, the time has come to decide, once and for all, what the best ABBA song is. The songs/PM-friendly list: The rules: 1. You must assign every song a score from 0-10. You are able to give one song a score of 11, and one song a score of 10.5, if you so wish. 2. Decimals of up to 2 places are allowed. 3. Ballots are to be sent to me (conatus) via PM. 4. No trolling! If I suspect you aren't being fair with your scores, I may reject them. 5. The deadline is Saturday, August 26th at 10pm GMT. 6. Have fun and happy voting!

  20. SHANIA TWAIN is known for being one of the few artists to successfully ride the line between country and pop music, while achieving notable success in both markets. She became a pop superstar with her unique blend many genres, while in the process becoming the queen of punctuation! Although it scanned platinum, Shania Twain failed to breakthrough with her self-titled debut in 1993. After marrying producer Mutt Lange and taking more creative control of her career, Shania tried again and achieved success and notability with 1995's The Woman In Me. The album spawned several hits, including "Any Man of Mine", eventually went diamond in the US, and sold over 20 million copies worldwide. In 1997, Shania reached international superstardom with the release of Come on Over, which became the best selling female studio album of all time, and the best selling country album ever. It was certified 2x diamond in the US, with sales of 40 million throughout the world. Come on Over produced several classic singles, such as "You're Still the One", "From This Moment On", "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" and "That Don't Impress Me Much", and the era lasted over 3 years, garnering Shania 4 Grammy awards. Shania came back strong again in 2002 with Up! which was another commercial success, becoming her first #1 album in the US. It was later certified diamond, making Shania the only artist to have three consecutive diamond albums. Up! also saw singles success with hits such as "I'm Gonna Getcha Good!" and "Forever and for Always". Since 2004, after she released her Greatest Hits album, Shania has mostly kept a low profile and has only released a small amount of new music. However, she has announced her new single and album to be coming in 2017. But before we get into that, we first must properly celebrate her past discography with this rate! Man! I Feel Like Shania! is a rate I started a few years ago but it was postponed due to low interest. Now that Shania is more active again, I think it is time for us to try this again as well! I hope all of Shania's biggest stans on ATRL participate, and I also hope to give the opportunity to anyone who may not be super familiar with her amazing discography (yet) to discover it. Anyway, let's get started! Score each song from 0-10. You can give an 11 to TWO of your favorite songs in the rate. Since Shania produces many versions of her songs (red, green, blue, etc.), you can choose to rate whichever version is your favorite. Only send me fully completed ballots (using the PM-friendly list please!). Don't troll! Enjoy the music! Note: All of Shania's music included in the rate should be available on all regions of Spotify, with the exception of "God Bless the Child (Single Version)", and "Amneris' Letter".

  21. Electronic dance music (EDM) is one of the most prominent genres in today's music. It reached its peak in 2013 when Billboard had to create a separate chart for these bangers that pervade our clubs and airwaves. Despite not being as prevalent as it once was, a handful of names have been keeping the genre relevant by collaborating with big names such as Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding. In this rate, we have collected 70 tracks from 10 of today's hottest (both literally and figuratively) DJs. All songs have charted somewhere in the Billboard Hot 100. Features do not count. We'll also be rating the paternal figures based on their looks, sex appeal and overall daddiness. Open the spoiler below for the complete list of entries. The Rules Listen to the songs once or twice more if you haven't already memorized them from weekend nights out. Make sure to be objective and take all aspects of the song (production, lyrics, vocals) into consideration. Rate each song from 1-10. You can give a 0 the song you think is the worst and an 11 to the best. Decimals are allowed as long as they're on tenths place (e.g. 0.5, 1.7) You may send a commentary for your 11 and your 0. Same rules apply to the daddies except you can't give a 0 or 11. Absolutely NO TROLLING. That only works for popgirls. You have three weeks to do the job.

  22. T H I S W A S P O P : 2 0 0 1 INTRODUCTION : 2001 was a fun time for pop. Kylie Minogue re-introduced herself to the world with her smash hit "Can't Get You Out Of My Head", Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC performed together at the American Music Awards, Whitney and Bobby were banned for life from Hollywood's Bel Air Hotel for trashing their room, Madonna toured for the first time in 8 years, and a lot more. But enough about them, because they are irrelevant and let me introduce you to the lovely ladies who we will be rating! MARIAH CAREY - The most successful female recording artist of the 90s, and probably the most reviled, too. After leaving Columbia Records, Ms. Carey signed a record-breaking $100 million record deal with Virgin Records. She was also working on a semi-autobiographical movie, Glitter. 2001 was supposed to be Mariah's biggest year, but as we all know, it isn't. For the first time in her professional life, Mariah was a big ****ing F L O P! Both of her vanity projects flopped tremendously, she was hospitalized for physical and mental exhaustion, Luis Miguel dumped her, she became the punching bag to distract the American public from the 9/11 attacks, and Virgin dropped her ass by paying her to get the **** out. Poor Mimi. JENNIFER LOPEZ - While Mariah's career was DYING, JLo's was LIVING. She became the first artist to have the number one album and movie in the country! DESTINY'S CHILD - Beyonce and her dad finally stopped firing hookers and stayed with future 3x Academy Award nominee, Michelle Williams. They also sang the theme song for Charlie's Angels. JESSICA SIMPSON - She's here. MANDY MOORE - She's also here. ALBUMS : GLITTER Loverboy (Remix) Lead The Way If We Didn't Mean To Turn You On Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica) All My Life Reflections (Care Enough) Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Want You Never Too Far Twister Loverboy MANDY MOORE In My Pocket You Remind Me Saturate Me One Sided Love 17 Cry Crush It Only Took A Minute Turn The Clock Around Yo-Yo From Loving You Split Chick When I Talk To You IRRESISTIBLE Irresistible A Little Bit Forever In Your Eyes There You Were What's It Gonna Be When You Told Me You Loved Me Hot Like Fire Imagination To Fall In Love Again For Your Love I Never His Eye Is On The Sparrow SURVIVOR Independent Women Part I Survivor Bootylicious Nasty Girl Fancy Apple Pie À La Mode Sexy Daddy Independent Women Part II Happy Face Emotion Dangerously In Love Brown Eyes The Story Of Beauty Gospel Medley (Dedicated to Andretta Tillman) Outro (DC-3) Thank You J.LO Love Don't Cost A Thing I'm Real Play Walking On Sunshine Ain't It Funny Cariño Come Over We Gotta Talk That's Not Me Dance With Me Secretly I'm Gonna Be Alright That's The Way Dame Si Ya Se Acabó RULES : 1. Rank every song from 0 - 10 2. You can give one lucky song an 11, and one unlucky song a -1 3. No trolling 4. Don't be extra with the decimals 5. Have fun PM FRIENDLY LIST : DEADLINE: AUGUST 11, 2017 / 11:59:59 PM
  23. You must rate every song, 1-10 One song gets an 11, one gets a 0 Use decimals if you’d like! (Up to 2 numbers) [ex. - 9.51, 3.11] No trolling! JULY 31st OP by @Clueless
  24. Welcome to the third installment of “ATRL’s Greatest”. Previously, we counted down the 250 Greatest Songs Of All Time and 150 Greatest Albums Of The Millennium. Between both rates, there was a strong modern pop girl presence (*cough* Carly Rae *cough*). So, this rate is bound to shake things up a bit! Unfortunately for pop fans, most of your current faves (the Rihannas, Gagas, Katys, and Taylors of the world) are ineligible as they were too busy attending school, growing up, and preparing for their eventual world domination. However, this is Janet, Madonna, Whitney, Mariah, Cyndi, and Kylie’s time to dominate! Now, before we start, keep in mind this will be a singles rate, so no obscure album tracks are eligible (sorry Daydream fans!). We will be counting down the top 150 singles of the 20th century. This rate will be a bit different from the last two, as we are going to have a 2 day “consideration” period before ballots are open, which will give everyone a chance to share and decide on the songs they want to see in the countdown. You may submit an unranked ballot of 25 to 100 singles to me via a Google Form. It can be any number in between 25 and 100. Each song nominated will be given one point, so rank on the ballot is irrelevant. SUBMIT HERE If the form does not work, please PM me your ballot. Only singles released between January 1, 1901 and December 31st, 2000 will be accepted. Yes, that is really when the century began/ended. And please double check on the release date of your song(s) if you are unsure. Songs are only eligible if they were released as a single. There are no requirements on where/when/how the single must have been released (*side eyes that bogus BB Airplay Single ban rule*). It could be a promo/radio only single released in Iceland, or a major worldwide release. Doesn’t matter. You may nominate up to 3 songs per artist. If you submit 50 or more songs, you may nominate 4 songs per artist. Group entries are counted separately from solo artists (e.g. The Supremes and Diana Ross; Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5). Deadline: 7/25 at 11:59PM EST BALLOTS OPEN: NOW (SUBMIT HERE)
