    Default The Coachella Message Board Top 25 of 2008

    Alright everybody, it's that time of year again. Time to make end of the year lists and what-not. And last year around this time I decided to compile and determine the message board's overall top 25 of the year.

    This year I am doing the same but uh, unfortunately, I'm going to be going overseas to Tunisia in about 2 days, so I'm probably going to have to do the brunt of this shit when I get back in early January.

    That being said, let me explain the system:

    This isn't just your average ranking list. In order to get a good estimate as to what the best records of the year are, per the board's opinion, I've developped a point system for all the entires, 1 through 25.

    It goes as such:

    1. 10 points
    2. 8 points
    3. 7 points
    4. 6 points
    5. 6 points
    6. through 10. = 5 points
    11. through 15. = 3 points
    16. through 20. = 2 points
    21. through 25. = 1 point

    It would be awesome if you could post your list and put the point score in parenthesis next to it, like so:

    1. The Beatles - Let It Be (10)
    2. The Who - Who's Next (8)
    3. Underworld - Beaucoup Fish (7)
    4. Dr. Dre - The Chronic (6)

    And so on and so forth.

    I'll be accepting entries as late as... Well. Let's go with 3 weeks. So the 7th is the last day for entries.

    Good luck, and godspeed.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    i'm guessing it can be 10. as long as it's under 25, right?
    PT has the last word, but it wouldn't hurt to put up a list.

    This point system seems unnecessarily complicated. Why isn't #1 worth 25pts and #25 worth 1pt?

    Well, honestly, it ought to be. But if you can't come around to posting 25 total, 10 is fine.

    And Alchemy, you have till January to continue editing/reposting your list, so feel free to edit it when you feel surer about your list.

    Also I know none of them have posted lists so far but I'm not going to count lists by alias accounts. Naturally this means someone's going to think "hurr hurr, let me switch accounts and post Abe Lincoln's top 25 gramaphone discs from 1862" in which case, awesome. Keep bumping the topic for me.

    Finally, I did this thing last year and I want to do it again this year. If you don't like the point system then don't bother. Also giving every single entry it's own point value (the 25 points to #1 - 1 point to #25) totally defeats the purpose of a point system. Think about it.

    I predict Deerhunter & Portishead to be the best albums of the year from what I've read here so far... with Fleet Foxes probably close behind.

    Probably.

    Also, I'm still the only person who's actually going to go to the trouble of adding all these stats up. If people want to whine about clutter, that's fine, but they ought to put up or shut up about compiling.

    That'd be pretty weird actually. One person's #1 album would automatically become worth twenty-five people's #25 album.

    My list will appear here at some point before the deadline. I tend to download a lot of the albums off other end of year lists that i'm not familiar with over xmas, so things will probably change a lot from what they are now. I only heard my current album of the year for the first time last week!
