Post 11th annual Braveboard year end lists
Hey all,

So, who's in for this year?

I didn't realize that this tradition has been going on for 11 years. By my records the first one was 2004 where the top album was Mastodon's Leviathan.


I know last year there was a debate on wether or not to include non-metal albums. My opinion is just to leave it up to the individuals discretion. I think if we get too technical it will turn into a mess. i.e. would the new Anathema album be included?

Discuss.

Shit, son. Tubular.

I would suggest that Anathema's history dictates it should be included on the list.


EDIT: as for non-metal in general... I don't think it should be included. It shouldn't be that hard to make a metal list. If something non-metal is in between your #7 and #9, then logic suggests that #9 now becomes #8.

Someone can make a non-metal thread if they want, but knowing this place it will die a terrible, terrible death.

Wow time flies! I'm always in but my list will be quite short this year (Bought about 6-7 title max.)

On wether or not to include non-metal albums i think that people should include them.

Cheers and thanks for the work as usual!

i think metal bands, or previously metal bands ie anathema, opeth, etc...should count.

I'm good. Still haven't finalized a list yet but that won't take long. A bit of non-metal material though but luckily I don't have any cred on this board to lose in the first place.

Nah, let's do a separate thread for non-metal. Easier through sift through the 2 categories in different threads.

Right on... This isn't the official thread, the O/P always posts his format requirements in the official thread...

:shred:

I will have about 120 releases from 2014 to sift through, so this will be fun I think.

Still enjoying Thou, although Panopticon, Audrey Horne, Goatwhore, Gridlink and Artificial Brain are contenders...

Does Musk Ox qualify to be included? If so, then they're a contender also...

You could leave the task to Encyclopedia Metallum, in which case Anathema would be included. But a TON of shit would also be excluded. (ie: Mallcore/"nu-metal", Metalcore, Deathcore, Glam rock, Classic rock, Progressive rock, Psychedelic rock, Occult rock, Hard rock, Hardcore, Grindcore with little to zero metal riffs or influence, Punk, Gothic rock, Industrial, Alternative/modern hard rock, J-Rock, Visual Kei Rock, Touhou, Djent, Ambient, Drone, Noise, Post-rock, Post-punk, Post-hardcore, Cover/tribute/gimmick bands)

The only above category which could possibly end up on my year end top 10 would be... I dunno probably none.

Anyways, I'm geared up for this year LOAF, glad you are up to the job.

How about this, To make it easier for everyone, lets just use our own discretion. We can encourage everyones lists to stick to metal, but if they throw in a Taylor Swift then so be it. Chances are she will not make the top 100. I really don't want to start having to make judgment calls on what is or is not metal.

Ya?

I have done a good job at not slacking this year. I've consistently listened to a lot of new stuff, because it's been a really good year for me personally. But it's time to kick 2014 listening into full gear now.

Thanks for doing this again!

Sounds reasonable...my list will be all metal and hard rock. I suspect that many non-metal releases won't make the top 100 either, but it's your list, so have at it. :)

If people want to put in non-metal, so be it. Unless other people are casting votes for the same albums, they really won't make much of a difference.

Boom, yeah. What few non-metal albums might conceivably end up on the list will be a hell of a lot more interesting and revealing in turning up there that what metal albums would've squeaked in at #99 and #100, I guarantee you that.
