how's the weighting on the lower numbers

or are they, as I suspect, just alphabetically listed?

Ranking by points scored then alphabetically. I could do it by points scored, number of votes, alphabetically when I reissue the list with corrections, if you'd prefer?

As I had an hour or so of free time this evening, just bought by Premium sub and I like lists I dumped all the albums into a massive Spotify Playlist which hopefully will be of interest to others but me:

Rllmuk's Favourite 70s Albums - Spotify Playlist

With the recent update you can do Ctrl-F to find stuff within it easily, I'd say a good 90% of the albums are included (Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and Pink Floyd are notable absentees). I've removed bonus tracks and live versions from the reissued versions where I noticed them.

I found a load of fascinating looking albums whilst putting it together which I'm sure I wouldn't have checked out otherwise. I'm listening to Bill Nelson's Sound-On-Sound at the moment from the list which is fantastic and I'd never heard of it before, kinda Devo meets Roxy Music.

I found a couple more dupes whilst compiling it, sorry!:

23 - Marvin Gaye - What's Going On? (43) (4)

82 - Marvin Gaye - What's going on (18) (1)

73 - Public Image Limited - Metal Box (19) (1)

82 - Public Image Ltd - Metal Box (18) (1)

73 - Black Sabbath - Master of Reality (19) (1)

94 - Black Sabbath - Masters of Reality (17) (1)

40 - Sly and the Family Stone - There's a Riot Goin' On (31) (2)

146 - Sly & The Family Stone - There's a Riot Goin' On (12) (2)

190 - Fripp and Eno - No Pussyfooting (7) (1)

251 - Robert Fripp & Brian Eno - No Pussyfooting (1) (1)

Someone seems to have voted for the Velvet Underground debut too :D

My work here is done . . .

You know what? In the, what, 30+ years since I first encountered it, I've never met anyone else who has ever heard of it, but I still freakin' love it; it's just plain barmy. I namedropped it into the synth thread, but it's more punky than most in there would go for. Makes me feel warm inside that I finally managed to introduce someone else to its pleasures.

Now come on, someone else who's only ever heard "Prince Charming' tell me what a revelation 'Dirk wears white Sox' is...

Mind you, most of my choices ended up with just my vote - is it just me, or does this seem like a pretty fragmented list? What a huge range of music the 70s threw up.
