Title: DTF Top 50 Albums Tracker Thread v2 - Now With Composite Rankings!
Post by: Big Hath on September 29, 2013, 10:54:49 PM
The purpose of this thread is to keep a running archive of past top 50 threads, notify current and soon to be thread starters of their turn, and to organize future interested participants.  Having three participants active at any one time seems to be the best way to go about it.  For those new to the idea of top 50 threads, it is simple - post your top 50 albums (preferably in some ranked order) and tell us why each album makes the list.  Make updates every day or so and try to finish in a respectable amount of time to keep things moving.  If you are interested, please post here and I will add you to the waiting list.

The Database

In addition to keeping the waiting list up to date, I have also I taken all of the top 50 lists that have been posted thus far and listed every selection in a spreadsheet including Album, Artist, Year of Release, and Forum User.  I also assigned points to each User's list based on their album ranking.  Their top ranked album received 50 points, 2nd ranked got 49 and so on.  If more than 50 albums were listed, the extra albums each received 1 point as if it were ranked 50th. (if you choose not to rank your album list, there isn't really a way for me to include your list in the database, sorry)

Some artists and their various projects have been combined due to one person being the primary driving force such as: Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson/No-Man/Bass Communion, Devin Townsend solo projects/Strapping Young Lad, Arjen Lucassen/Ayreon/Star One, etc

The database is an excel spreadsheet at the moment, but I have placed some of the info in a google doc that can be accessed here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Av7hhWXD5VkadEtTOTNyN0ZfdTZaWWF3N3BjOFROeGc

Orthogonal is complete.  Still haven't heard from Dittomist - sent another PM today.  PM's also sent to everyone in the "future" list.

Lolzeez and Lowdz, we need one or both of you to go ahead with your lists.  Are you ready to go?

Scorpion, you are on standby.

I just added the composite top 10 DTF albums to the bottom of the OP.  More stats to follow.

Colors fell out of the top 5 as it was passed by both WYWH and O:MC.  Deadwing and DSOTM both jumped into the top 10, replacing Addicted (Devin Townsend Project) and The Alchemy Index (Thrice).

Images and Words has appeared on 67.4% of all top 50 lists.  6DOIT and Blackwater Park have both appeared on 44.2% of the lists.

Thanks for taking this thread Big Hath, you're a perfect fit for it and it looks like you've brought your cattle prod too.

Can you shed some light on the scoring methodology? I'm assuming something like a #1 album is 50pts and a #50 album is 1pt or something like that.

One last question to indulge me. Did I have any DTF firsts for my Top 50?

Thanks,

updated the OP with the info, but yeah that's the gist of it.

went ahead and posted top 20 albums.  Master of Puppets was the only album that moved into the top 20 since the last time I ran these numbers.

Other big movers in the top 50 or so albums:

- Symphony X had two albums that made big jumps, V climbed 39 spots to #42 and Divine Wings went up 88 spots to get to #47.
- Opeth's Still Life moved ahead 45 spots to #38
- Radiohead's Kid A was passed by the most albums.  It lost 17 spots and now sits at #48.

Post by: Big Hath on October 04, 2013, 09:35:45 AM
a couple of notes on the artist ranking:

- Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson finally jumped over Devin Townsend/SYL.  Devin has 15 albums earning points to Wilson's 10, but 3 PT albums rank higher than Devin's highest ranking album.
- Opeth is now only 3 points behind Devin
- Rush eclipsed Iron Maiden with this update
- Queensr˙che jumped 6 spots to get into the top 10
- Symphony X jumped 10 spots to get into the top 20

Post by: Big Hath on October 04, 2013, 02:56:44 PM
added top 10 years for music according to the top 50 lists

- 2005 continues to dominate, with 2007 still comfortably in second place.
- 2011 passed both 2006 and 2003, primarily on the strength of point gains from Visions (Haken), Grace For Drowning (Steven Wilson), A Dramatic Turn of Events (DT), and England Keep My Bones (Frank Turner).
- Interestingly, 2010 fell out of the top 10 as it was passed by 1999 and 1998 (and 1992).

lets see . . . looks like you had 13 first timers to the database:

Seventh Wonder - Mercy Falls
Flaming Row - Elinoire

How the F? I had Mercy Falls at #2 on my second list and jingly had Elinoire at #1 on his second list. Are you not counting second lists then?

Also, I just noticed you have BTBAM's Parallax II in there twice, with different names (one starts with 'The' and is the correct title, as opposed to the one missing that word).

I only input each person's top 50 into the database, so a second list doesn't go in unless it replaces the first one.  Since jingle's and your second lists were supplements to the first, they weren't counted.

Although I did notice in your thread you said "At the end of this list, I will combine both top 50's to create a new one that would be correct for all albums I have ever heard."  But I don't think you ever posted that list.  Post it and I will update your list in the database.

A Farewell to Kings just missed at #22.

Hemispheres is at #54.  PeW is tied with 2112 at #107.  (Power Windows is actually higher than both at #72)

I'm happy to get on the "may go" list  - I would love to do it but need plenty more time and thought. Numbers one, two and three are obvious to me but that's about it.  Recently had a corrupted iTunes library file and lost a lot of my ratings (I'm not good at doing this by memory) and I also have hundreds of CDs in my collection I've barely (or not) listened to.   

My list will be a bit more melodic rock/melodic metal + a touch of blues and a bit less prog rock/industrial etc... compared to most here but a bit of variety never hurt anyone  :D

Thanks - works in with my timetable.  I've only just begun groundwork and realised I'm going to have to re-listen to the best few hundred and rate with a more critical ear to have a hope of narrowing down to 50.  I've been too liberal with my 5 star iTunes ratings.

Not really............and in the end I'll think as hard as I think .....which is pretty hard when it comes to things I'm as passionate about as my music :P     I was going to do an exercise like this anyway - over time I've wanted to have a Playlist of all my top shelf tracks which I can (now I've finally got my Sonos set up) play through my main hifi via Sonos/iPad and ditch CDs,  but I've been far too generous with 5 star ratings to the point that the "5-star playlist" is too large and almost meaningless.  So this is just going to give me a kick along for what I intended doing eventually anyway........re-doing ratings with less generosity.    I'm in front of a PC all day every day listening to music so it shouldn't be too hard.

Chad's right, you're thinking too much.  It shouldnt just be about 5 star ratings, it should be albums that share a pinnicle moment in your life, or an album that simply changed your life.  That's how I came up with mine and it was rather easy and I still probably wouldn't change that much of it now.  I think you are treating it to seriously too.  Man, it's not really a top priority in life, don't you have work or something?

 I'm glad we've agreed on Talisman and Harem Scarem or I might start to think you take the task of critiquing my posts/thought processes a bit too seriously  :laugh:    I appreciate the ongoing interest in my life , my sanity and my Top 50 selection process but you're jumping to some conclusions here . 

I work my arse off mate - it just so happens that during the 12 hours a day I sit in front of a PC/on the road running my own business that I have music cranking much of the time and I'm enjoying rating my collection.............sorry if that's too intense?  Without my music I probably would go nutty.

Like I keep saying I'd be doing the ratings anyway so as to create some cool playlists (or just for fun :eek) and the 5 star rating bit will have nothing to do with the final rankings really. It may not be a huge collection compared to many here but from 2500+ albums (two thirds of which I really rate) down to 50   takes a little thought and yes............I'm the sort of bloke who , when taking on even such an insignificant task in an area I'm passionate about,  will enjoy it more if I do it semi-seriously.

The whole idea is that they will all have similar album ratings  (v high) and then I can rank based on the whole album experience, time spent with them , their influence on me (mostly) and others.   The process of listening to my top 100-200 over a few months will refresh the memory and make the task of deciding the group of 50 a bit easier.   The top 20-30 are easy after some thought - the 31-50 slots (many of which I won't have listened to in quite some time) not so much.  I'd be listening to stuff all day anyway so why not all my all time faves and kill two birds with one stone?

Hoping we can get back to talking music rather than analysing  huge world issues like whether I'm taking my top 50 list too seriously ............

Off to get my fix of Blacklist for the week..........:)

Cheers

Brent

not sure how this works exactly, but in an effort to clean up the OP, could a mod move the non-2014 threads from the "recently completed" section of the OP to the archive, and also add the individual thread links to the archive thread (this one: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=33261.0)

so it would involve moving the ones from adace down to PuffyPat

composite top 20 albums list has been updated (the google doc has not been updated yet, getting to that later this week).

Some notes on the updated top 20 albums list:

- Metropolis Pt. 2: SFAM was the biggest point gaining album in the last update with 134 points and it overtook Blackwater Park for #2.
- Colors jumped Operation: Mindcrime as they swapped #6 and #7
- Awake made a huge jump into the top 20 from #23 to #11 as it scored the 3rd most points in this update
- Master of Puppets did well going from #15 to #10
- Terria and Animals also made big jumps to get into the top 20
- Falling out of the top 20 were Deconstruction, ( ), and The Alchemy Index
- Wish You Were scored the 2nd most points this update, but remained at #5

Post by: Big Hath on June 11, 2014, 09:29:21 PM
composite top 20 artists list is now updated.

- Dream Theater and Pink Floyd gained the 1st and 2nd most points this update, although there were no changes in the top 5
- Iron Maiden gained the 3rd most points and just edged Rush for 6th.  Rush gained the 4th most points
- Pain of Salvation and Led Zeppelin jumped into the top 20 while Tool and Genesis fell out
- Outside the top 20, Nine Inch Nails gained the 5th most points overall and ended up at #26

So as to not hijack outcrier's thread...

ok, finally able to look at this . . .   I assume you are talking about unique albums.  Here are the artists that have 10 or more unique albums in top 50 lists.

Devin Townsend et al - 15 unique albums mentioned
Dream Theater - 12
Rush - 12
Iron Maiden - 11
Opeth - 10
Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson etc - 10

Pink Floyd has 7 unique albums mentioned.  After I&W, SFAM, 6DOIT, and Blackwater Park, Wish You Were Here comes in 5th appearing on 36% of lists.

Rush's highest percentage album is Moving Pictures at 18%.

To get to the first Maiden album, you have to go down to 16% (Somewhere in Time and Powerslave).

Interesting... love all these stats!

second, let's see if Kilgore wants to have a go.


Kiilgore, now that you've had a few days to think about it, would you be ready to start soon?  If, not, I can put you behind Accelerando or Sacul.  That would give you at a least a month or so.

Normally, a well-timed list shouldn't take more than a month. And you put your rules - although I'd avoid putting two albums in the same position, because of statistical reasons, right Big Hath?
Title: Re: DTF Top 50 Albums Tracker Thread v2 - Now With Composite Rankings!
Post by: Big Hath on February 13, 2015, 11:25:29 AM
two albums with the same ranking aren't that big of a deal unless you have several of them.  The only real issue I run into is if someone doesn't rank their list at all.

Having said that, it's your list.  Do what you want.

Title: Re: DTF Top 50 Albums Tracker Thread v2 - Now With Composite Rankings!
Post by: Sacul on February 13, 2015, 03:44:52 PM
Yes, specially thanks to the roulette. I made a draft of a new top 50 last month, and at least half the albums were new and most of the others had their positions changed. And I'm discovering so many great records right now that I wonder how the list will look like in 3 months :lol .

I have some free time now, so I guess starting the write-ups for the top 15 tier should save me some time for the future. I think this time I'll put a deadline for new entries, make a draft of the list and then, for some weeks, listen to the 50 albums from #1 to the last one, while writing my thoughts on each. The list will obviously change until the very moment I post the first update, but I hope this will make things easier.

Post by: twosuitsluke on February 14, 2015, 06:59:45 AM
You know what, I am nowhere near ready to start my top 50 yet but I am having so much fun just re-listening through a shit ton of my fave albums and trying to rate them. I know a lot of people would find this incredibly sad  :loser: and a waste of time but music is my life. I live for discovering new music. My top 50-40 has so far completely changed as i've been listening to old classics of mine.

It's hard because I have completely changed the way I listen to music over the years. Most of my top 50 are the albums that made me a music fanatic and got me into (mostly) metal. But as I have become more obsessed with discovering new bands I am always listening to new music. I very rarely play albums over and over on repeat like I used to. I have discovered lots of new music over the last 2-3 years, I'm trying to work out if any of the newer stuff out ranks my old favourites. My top three bands never changed for years and years (this will be reflected in my top  50) however one or two bands have edged out my #3 band. It's so hard to rate old classics that with so many attached memories and amazing music (although I hardly listen to them any more) against new albums which are just plain incredible.

All part of the fun I guess  ;D

It's a rediscovery process - realising your beloved albums aren't that great while others have grown a lot on you, more than expected, is really a mind-blowing experience. And lots of fun too :biggrin: .

I got into and explored further a bunch of bands, so yep. A list every 6 months is more than reasonable.

For me it's more like every 3-5 years is a reasonable time to do a new list. Guess it just has to do with the amount of music one discovers every month/year. I think I'm more of a conservative music listener myself, but I have nothing against the frequent lists updates, was just a bit surprised.

Yeah, things like these really change from person to person. It's not even that I have like 90% new albums, my v2 is looking a bit 50/50 for now, but as time passes I think that will change.

Title: Re: DTF Top 50 Albums Tracker Thread v2 - Now With Composite Rankings!
Post by: Sacul on February 19, 2015, 12:27:20 PM
I think it works great because you get some insights when you're actually listening to the music that are hard to recall later, and it also gives you more ideas on how to express your love for that special album rather than "fucking great record :metal :heart :hefdaddy ". Not that its bad to fangirl about it, but someone who has never listened to it might not get an idea of what it actually is about nor how it sounds.


Damn, I should stop procrastinating and start my own write-ups now :lol .

Title: Re: DTF Top 50 Albums Tracker Thread v2 - Now With Composite Rankings!
Post by: Evermind on February 19, 2015, 01:50:07 PM
There's actually nothing wrong with that. After I've composed my Top 50 list, and even after I've posted it all, I went to revisit it, and just found out I still love every record immensely. And if you think it's a damnable great record, you have every right to write this very thing.

And yeah, it really pays off to give your write-up a chance to blossom. Doing the first rough sketch of it (and sometimes the second and the third too, depends on the density of the record) and then transforming the thing into a bigger, more full, colourful and precise description is exactly what I'm doing when I write the review for that music magazine I work for. It's wonderful how a few more listens after the first draft of your text can enhance and naturally change your way of writing.

I think this thread wasn't meant for such posts though, so I apologize for the kind of offtop. ::)

I'm currently relistening to my entire musical collection, and just out of curiosity, I attempted to do a new top 50. Surprisingly, half of it has totally changed, and it's new. But I still don't feel 100% confident with it, so I may start my v2 in May.

So I now think I’m keen to do one of these, ready to go whenever. I realise there are 3 or 4 already on the go though, and a waiting list.

You will be likely be waiting a few months but my recommendation would be to start now.  It is a significant exercise that IMHO is much more enjoyable for you and those following if you have pre-prepared most of your write-ups.  Writing up as you go can be a chore as daily life interferes and the timeframe tends to blow out.

 Those who have done this before… How hard was it for you to come up with 50 good albums? I just started a list of albums that I really really like last night, and can only get up to about 40 or so. I also don't want to oversaturate my list with a whole bunch of the same genre, because I like so many albums from different artist in different genres.

 Well I would imagine that I missed several, since I whipped it up in about five minutes time. I'll probably end up with the top 200. My problem is, I just looked through my iTunes folders, and a lot of my music from my old computer didn't copy over, so… I also was trying to limit myself I don't want to put every single rush album on there, how are every single Genesis album or every single dream theater album...

50 was easy. It was just a matter of deciding what makes it into positions 35-50 and what 20 or so albums didn't quite make the cut.

i had around 80 albums that got onto my rankings list when i first went through my library. did honorable mentions for a good number of the ones that didn't make my list.

900th post.  I said to myself if I make it to 900 here, I would throw my hat to the ring in this sort of thing.  Well, I want to do a Top 50 albums thread. 

Ideally, I want to start the thread on my 1000th post.  I don't know how long that would take me to get to 1,000.  Maybe a few months or so.  However, I might as well put myself in the queue, right now.  So, where do I sign up?

it's a kind-of top 50 in the sense that i'm ranking the albums i got last year from worst to best, actually  :lol

there's only like a 2 album overlap with my previous top 50 list there.

also i dunno how many i'll do. the final count is like, a little short of 70. i might do a top 25, a top 50, or just all of them.

since ASacrificedSon is probably gone forever would i be good for starting my list any time. i'm getting to the point in my writeups where i have enough of a backlog and enough sorted that i could probably start but i may just hold off until i have most if not all of the albums sorted since there's already been pretty big discrepancies between my rough list and where my rankings have ended up just in the bottom 25 or so  :lol

Seeing how I'm kinda sorta back....  :biggrin:

I have my list ready, but before I can start, I want to type out a bunch of write-ups beforehand, so that I can just copy-paste them from there. I won't have to worry about stalling half-way, because the write-ups aren't done yet. I think I could start at the end of the week (Friday or something).

Seeing how it's been a few years, I think I might go ahead and put my name down to do a second Top 50 list, if that's alright?

Yo BH

Wondering if, since no one seems to be running any form of top album lists right now (and the ones that are don't seem to be on it right now), I could maybe do something freeflow style I've been wanting to do?

Basically I am listening to all the 2016 releases I have gathered so far and posting a review as I am listening to random albums from the collection. Afterwards I will be ranking them. that ok? could start right away too

I don't know if posting in this thread is something people still do, but I'm strongly considering doing a quick top 40-50 list when I'm on break in a month or so.

Nice! I'll follow it :azn: I'm planning to do one as well but probably once the summer holiday starts as I don't have the time now.

This is something that I wanted to do even before hosting a roulette (but never got around to it). I've actually got my top 50 albums in a playlist and the order is pretty much correct.

I'd follow you guys and hopefully get around to doing my own once I've finished my 'top 30 albums of 2016' thread.

I've never read this thread although I've read several Top 50 threads. I really liked the overall rankings, great idea!
