Can you actually take me off the list for now please, Hath?  Uni just started today, and while I was keen to do all my write ups a cuply months ago, I imagine the amount of writing I'll have to do this year will just put me in that 'can't be fucked' pile of lost Top 50 threads :lol  Will revisit once I have uni break.

Please guys, I need a list to disagree with, and to discover some new music too.

I am putting a list together, so add me to the list and as soon as I'm ready to start, I'll let you know.  Expect to hear from me again within the next few days.

as far as I'm concerned, anyone that's ready can go.  Doesn't look like we have any active lists going at the moment.

Well, if that's the case, mine will probably start as soon as I have enough writeups done. Could be a month, could be two, it depends.

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.
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.

I'm thinking about doing one myself, but I want to save that for my 1,000th post.  Is it possible to do that with the timing and all?  I have no idea when I will hit 1k though.

I think the ones that were going just kind of died out.  Start one when you're ready.

I should probably announce that my v2 is dead. I didn't find the time to write the writeups back then, but now it has changed, so it would be pointless to continue that one. Sorry guys   :-\

Well, considering there isn't a top running at the moment, I think nobody would complain if you started yours now  :P

I'm not ready and don't want to do it just for sake of doing it. But I hope I'll have something soon because summer is the only time when I have enough time for such thing :P
EDIT: Just saw your signature. The To-Listen Project is your Facebook site? I was actually checking that site but recently I unfollowed all sites because I don't want to waste time on Facebook (even though things like that are not waste of time).

So, I know that I sound pretty annoying, but now that the roulette is over and I feel more relaxed (not because of the roulette, just generally), I was willing to ask if I may do a reboot of my v2. Like, start it over. Like a 2.5 . On the same thread, though. It has happened other times in the past, right?  :lol

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.
