    Talking in the All Saints thread about the different ways we rate albums and how some people (me) are more conservative than others. There is no right way to rate your loon albums but is always fun to see a TRUE CRAZY RATE

    rate your faves here!

    this is how I rate Madonna’s Ray Of Light, still the greatest album ever made:

    10 Drowned World
    10 Swim
    09 Ray of Light
    10 Candy Perfume Girl
    08 Skin
    10 Nothing Really Matters
    10 Sky Fits Heaven
    08 Ashanti
    10 Frozen
    11 The Power of Goodbye
    09 To Have And Not to Hold
    09 Little Star
    08 Mer Girl

    This is quite a tough task as a lot of the albums I love I would score highly/solidly on the individual songs but not spectacularly yet as a body of work it’s amazing. Likewise a lot of pop albums might have high flying individual scores but altogether is too much.

    same!

    Also I’m going to have an existential crisis over what my favorite album is. I just can’t decide

    You definitely should Suedey! Ten Love songs is definitely her most electro/big sounding album. Her other efforts are bit more laid back. But if you like that electro sound you should also check her collabs with Röyksopp, Kleerup and M83.

    Ben Howard’s Every Kingdom is probably the only album to trouble ROL for me in the past 20 years. Probably not moopy-adjacent but here it is anyway:

    09 Old Pine
    07 Diamonds
    10 The Wolves
    08 Everything
    09 Only Love
    10 The Fear
    11 Keep Your Head Up
    10 Black Flies
    10 Gracious
    10 Promise

    Sundfør session now in progress

    ‘Oblivion’ is pure perfection.

    ‘Mountaineers’ was the first song I wanted to hear after ten days silent meditation. It was a perfect moment with ALL the feels.

    Then of course there’s this:

    08 All I Really Want
    10 You Oughtta Know
    10 Perfect
    10 Hand In My Pocket
    09 Right Through You
    10 Forgiven
    10 You Learn
    07 Head Over Feet
    10 Mary Jane
    10 Ironic
    07 Not The Doctor
    07 Wake Up

    I’ve always contested that JLP doesn’t have one stand out epic track, but the fact that it’s so mind boggingly consistent from start to finish with amazing songs is what makes it so special

    I <3 Music For People In Trouble so much. It's a total GROWER of an album, and also quite SEASONAL (Winter), but a beautiful counterpoint to Ten Love Songs.

    White Foxes and The Silicon Veil album remain a TOWERING TRIUMPH TOO ofc :disco:

    Is there a Sundfør album rate somewhere?

    ‘The silicone veil’ quite possibly tops TLS for me

    Anyway.

    Susanne stan aside, I think my favourite album would probably be The B-52’s, Wild Planet or Cosmic Thing.

    Or World Clique.

    As you know @POP! I'm no Britney fan but I do remember the buzz around that album. It felt like she had released something really important in her career.

    I would like to do this, but you know how boring it is to read another Ray of Light rate with all 11s and 10s.
