By One #1 Vote. Cool.


Dramatic shit! if only you'd ranked Revolver @ #59 SM :lol:

33 votes Vs. 32 as well, how many lists were there?
Nice bowl of Crunchy Nut you got here, pretty expensive as I recall.

Yay! Way to go GDB. Another yeoman's job. Time for some detailed stats, followed by the singles results. When will I ever get any work done?

Prediction: Mitchell & I will argue over singles in the next poll. :lol:


I can save it until the Springsteen albums next time round, don't mind.

Which poll is that?
Every Sunday morning I wake up
I see you by your dresser doing your make-up
Fluttering a Chinese fan in a Knoxville fashion
All last night you tossed and turned
Your body was hotter than the night Richmond burned
You say you had a bad nightmare about tractor trailers crashing

Mitchell, all's cool. I think my last post was still a bit confusing though. I didnt' mean that people would cynically vote for Revolver, but that they would honestly feel the Beatles deserved a spot on their list, and choose Revolver as the "alternative" to Sgt Peppers. It's not that I doubt it being their favorite Beatles record, just that they may not spend as much of their lives rating records as you or I do, and therefore not really have as informed an opinion as they might. Add to that that maybe the Beatles were never their favs and they are young and this isn't a period in music where their collections are that deep and they MAY wind up voting for a record that were they more familiar with the discography, they would opt for a different record.


Dude, I'll give you money to shut your gob.

Revolver is pretty much mediocre for the first 7 seconds. Rest of it is quite good really.


It's kind of amusing in a touch-in-cheek way...you know, Revolver being the pinnacle of their studio period and letting us hear them holed up in the studio.

Don't mean to contradict you on every point...

GREAT job, GDB, can't wait 'til the next one.

I like it for the back reference to thier debut, what follows is rather different though.

M. Ward - Hold Time 8.0/10
Neko Case -Middle Cyclone her best I've heard is my initial impression, but too soon to rate, haven't had a really good listen yet 7.8/10

Awesome work, Good Dr Bill. And there are lots of interesting, lesser-known nuggets (no pun) hidden throughout the lower regions of this. The singles countdown is where it's gonna be at for neat surprises though, I'm thinkin'.
If you ain't gonna get it on, take your dead ass home.

Alright, Nancy, let's go:

Mitchell, all's cool. I think my last post was still a bit confusing though. I didnt' mean that people would cynically vote for Revolver, but that they would honestly feel the Beatles deserved a spot on their list, and choose Revolver as the "alternative" to Sgt Peppers.



Have a little respect for the people who voted. Take me, for shits-n-giggles--I chose Revolver as my highest ranking Beatles album solely because it's my favorite Beatles album. This whole "'alternative' to Sgt. Peppers" thing is a wicked-pompous, casually dismissive way to look at how other people voted.

It's not that I doubt it being their favorite Beatles record, just that they may not spend as much of their lives rating records as you or I do, and therefore not really have as informed an opinion as they might.


Other people's opinions aren't as "informed" because they're not as anal-rententive/obsessive-compulsive as you? Seriously, I'll take Montana's dopiest bit of baiting over this kind of "I feel more deeply than thou" elitism any day.


Add to that that maybe the Beatles were never their favs and they are young and this isn't a period in music where their collections are that deep and they MAY wind up voting for a record that were they more familiar with the discography, they would opt for a different record.


That big "MAY" is mighty white of you, but this sentence again reeks of "oh if only others knew the Beatles as well as I do, we could've had a different, better outcome." Get over yourself.

Sorry if I pimped Rubber Soul too much. I wasn't really aware I was doing it. Only recollection I have of it was when I tried to get Coolrock to make it #1 (to replace Beatles For Sale). Maybe I did it more often though. I dunno.


All for the pimping. Pimping is good. Denigrating people's opinions, knowledge, and votes after the fact is just bush league.

And if not wanting to be talked down to by you makes me an asshole, I can live with that.

Listen, slackster, all you say would be fair game IF it wasn't preceeded by the previous back and forth between Mitchell & I. I KNOW there are LOTS of folks who legitimately love these records. I can definitely understand your reaction assuming you hadn't read the previous discussion. Sorry if I offended you.

And the big MAY was truly meant to eliminate the many voters who are well versed in this era. Heck, judging by this poll, I'd say I'm way less than well versed in this era myself. Any indication otherwise was wholly unintended.

Music's subjective; I don't pretend to have an opinion better than anyone else's. Just tried to explain why I think sometimes polls misrepresent opinions is all. jeez.

This must be how hickman feels all the time. sigh. :mellow:

Sweet- glad I got my list in at the last minute. The White Album doesn't belong in the top ten...it's an imperfect record, albeit with brilliant peaks.

Not that it matters, but who cast that last vote?

Guilty as charged. Yay Revolver! :D
