Awesome work as ever and a source of great music recommendations that'll last me months.

 

Minor nitpicks - I've seen Jon Hopkins - Singularity in there twice, once at no 58 and again at no 169.

 

Thanks for that - it puts Singularity in 13th place. I'll hold off updating the list until later in case any others show up.

When I looked the other day, before the last flurry of voting, everybody’s top album was unique. Most of the votes were for albums I’m not familiar with either. Appreciate your efforts in doing this, as ever. 

 

Word.

 

There's a lot of artists mentioned that I'd completely forgotten about, and many more who I haven't yet discovered. I feel like I've really slacked off in terms of listening to music this past decade.

 

400+ albums is quite the backlog. Thanks, 'muk. Thmuk.

 

And also - thanks @ngchol for putting in the work!

Plus they had three songs as bonus tracks on an album I voted for! :lol:

 

https://youtu.be/EwYCq9tT0GU

 

 

Also, maybe that top artists list should combine these two entries together as points for Hans Zimmer?

I did consider that, and I love Hans Zimmer, but Wallfisch is definitely credited as co-composer on BR2049 so I decided not to. For reference, it would put him in equal 6th place in the artists list. To continue down that road, I'd have to go through the songwriting credits for each album and assign partial credit to artists who feature elsewhere etc etc...

Trivia I noticed from doing this comparison:

  • Rllmuk voted for two Daughter albums; the RYM top 200 chart doesn't have them, but instead has two Daughters albums.
  • Things RYM users really like but Rllmuk voters don't: Swans (5 albums in RYM top 200).
  • Things RYM users really really like but Rllmuk voters don't: Death Grips (7 albums in RYM top 200!)
  • Videogame soundtracks:
    • In Rllmuk's list: The Last of Us and Fez.
    • In the RYM chart (with a relatively small number of ratings): Minecraft: Volume Alpha, Undertale, NieR Gestalt & RepliCant, NieR:Automata, Xenoblade, Persona5, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, LISA, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
  • Rllmuk voted for Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell. RYM's top 200 includes Carrie & Lowell Live as well.
  • Both versions of Car Seat Headrest's Twin Fantasy make it into the RYM top 100, but Rllmuk only voted for Teens of Denial.
