Post BB 2017 top albums thread
alright y'all. i believe last year LOAF said he is done doing this, so i will jump on the grenade and make sure this stays going.
same rules as last years.
top 15 albums ranked from 1-15 like such:
1. band-album
2. band-album
etc....

it is up to you to know what was released this year. please go off the metal archives release date, as that will be my guideline. early leaks, etc will not count as a 2017 release.
list can include any genre. metal or not. in that case, use wikipedia for official release date.
EPs and live albums count!

anything else i am missing?

The answer to this specific question is "not that way". I asked this last year and he stated it was some bizarre scoring algorithm that placed the value for number 15 at like 2.23475675 and number 1 at 13.637876 or some such. I suggested that the scoring system used be 4 points for number 15 and increasing by 1 up until 18 point for number 1.

Final, FINAL, version

1. Colter Wall - Colter Wall
2. Angel Vivaldi - Synapse
3. Stallion - From the Dead
4. The Obsessed - Sacred
5. Blazon Stone - Down in the Dark
6. Vain - Rolling With the Punches

13. Municipal Waste - Slime and Punishment
14. Cemetery Urn - Cemetery Urn
15. Cellador - Off the Grid

16. Morta Skuld - Wounds Deeper Than Time
17. Chainsaw - Filthy Blasphemy
18. Succumb - Succumb
19. Lock Up - Demonization
20. Liar's Tongue - Threat of Intellect

21. Jonwayne - Rap Album Two
22. Godflesh - Post Self
23. Goatwhore - Vengeful Ascension
24. Woman is the Earth - Thaw
25. Varaha - Varaha


Top Disappointments

With Our Arms to the Sun - Orenda: their version of Post Metal was so awesome before, and then they went and added vocals and it all went to shit.

Run the Jewels - RTJ3: just had no staying power for me.

Tony MacAlpine - Death of Roses: Seems hurried and lacking verve. Must have been because of his cancer.

Origin - Unparalleled Universe: just boring garbage this time.

do you guys know how LOAF tabulated scores? number one get 15 points and number fifteen gets 1 point?


The answer to this specific question is "not that way". I asked this last year and he stated it was some bizarre scoring algorithm that placed the value for number 15 at like 2.23475675 and number 1 at 13.637876 or some such. I suggested that the scoring system used be 4 points for number 15 and increasing by 1 up until 18 point for number 1.

Is there a reason for either of those formats?

I can't recall LoaF's reasons for his, but under the "1 point for #15, 15 points for #1" system, it assumes that in any given list that what that person considers the best album is 15 times better than what they consider their 15th fave. I just have always felt that puts way too much value on what each person felt was the best album. Having it be 4 to 18 makes each #1 album only 4.5 times more valuable than their 15th pick. Just my opinion is all, as I feel my tweak to the scoring rewards albums that show up on more lists and the 15 to 1 system rewards how high on any list a given album scores.
