When I did my 2nd list (I think it was only a couple years after the first one), I limited it to bands that I'd discovered from DTF (specific members, or just the collective whole), or since joining DTF.  Since it's been 8 years, I could probably do another list like that.  It's just a matter of committing the disposable time.

Exactly.  If you are going to commit the time you want to do it properly.  I have a few already.  I think I will keep working on it

I have also thought many times of doing a 2.0 as well. But I have no idea how to format it. I did mine in 2012, and I don't think it would change all that much. Certainly not 1-30.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D
Nice one Tim, I have great faith in you, as the fogey with the best taste.

You could always do 'the next 50'?
If I can do it, it's idiot proof..

That's why it would be a totally different list.  Like a different era of my life represented.

Now you've got me thinking about doing a 3rd Top 50 ... simply a Top 50 list after what I've already fired off.  Would encompass everything - all genres, eras, when I discovered them... no restrictions really.

:hmmmm:

I'm guessing there would be a lot of overlapping but would be fun to do.

Oh man, this thread getting bumped is a painful reminder that I never finished my top 50 list. :lol

I'd like to give it another go at some point, especially since it would look mostly different at this point, and I feel most of the write-ups I did to be lackluster.

I've been slowly curating a playlist of 'best songs ever' to differentiate from my 'favorites' playlist which has just been my default Spotify playlist for anything and everything I like. But this one is the cream of the crop, the ones I think are 100% flawless and perfect. I've thought about making a thread for it but there would be a bunch of repeat artists so idk

I for one don't care about repeat artists, and think people make too big a deal of them in lists like this. Would absolutely follow that thread.

I've degreed May "concept album month" for the majority of my listening.  I've got almost 150 concept albums in my library, prolly another 30-40 sitting in Spotify, and I just went through the 6 'concept album' threads that have popped up over the years, and have another 40 or so I'll give an honest shot at (though, I'm virtually certain more than a few will be a waste of time - *cough* Pain of Salvation *cough* ... *cough* Porcupine Tree *cough*)

So, if I were to do a Top 50 Concept Albums thread, anyone care?

Perhaps... haven't decided yet.  My #2 all-time fave album is also a concept album.  It's likely a foregone conclusion they will be 1-2, and the top 10 or 15 will be a little anti-climactic (other than the rankings).

It'll be a few months before I get to it... it was just a thought that came to mind, and whether it would be worth the effort.  I suspect the listening, sorting, writeups will take quite some time.

Toying with the idea of doing another top 50.  Not sure what would qualify for it though.  Been thinking about it and pretty much would be albums that just stuck for a long period of time.  Gone through a lot of music since the last top 50 and purchased a lot of cd's, but the next 50 would pretty much just be that.  Those albums that got more repeated listens than normal when you buy new music.  Got a few easy highlights that will be near the top but narrowing down 50 will be hard.
