    The Paloma album is great, and it's not really my sort of thing, generally.

    TOP FIFTY TIME.

    46. (---) Rihanna – Rated R- 8.35 (167/20) NEW
    47. (59) Holly Valance - State Of Mind - 8.33 (333/40)*
    48. (42) The Knife - Deep Cuts - 8.33 (125/15)*
    49. (44) Janet Jackson – Control- 8.33 (105/12)
    50. (45) Michael Jackson - Dangerous - 8.31 (266/32)*


    Decent holds for Michael, Janet and The Knife - in fact Janet has done very well for herself this year with her albums. Dangerous is Jacko's third highest album on the list. Holly Valance took a vicious fall in 2010 after opening in the Top Ten in 2009, but rather than prove her worth as flash in the pan she makes a strong comeback in the face of this year's new entries, and is one of the highest climbers. That album just refuses to go away. Rihanna makes an expected appearance with her most recent eligible release, but perhaps lower than would be expected.

    Nice entry for Rated R, easily her best album to date.

    41. (31) Pink – Funhouse- 8.42 (160/19)*
    42. (---) Shakespeare’s Sister – Hormonally Yours- 8.42 (101/12) NEW
    43. (---) Sheryl Crow – The Globe Sessions- 8.42 (101/12) NEW
    44. (40) Jeff Buckley - Grace- 8.39 (109/13)
    45. (35) Siobhan Donaghy - Ghosts- 8.36 (301/36)*


    A varying triumvate of albums from Pink, Buckley and Donaghy (just about) hang around the Top 50, while we have new entries from SS and Crow - the former possibly on the back of an X Factor-influenced chart comeback last year, and the latter just making an inexplicable impact this year, proving she has some serious fans on here. Her second of two new entries, but it's not her highest placed overall.

    which reminds me, I MUST check out that SS album. I never have. And I love her voice.

    26. (22) Human League - Dare! - 8.81 (141/16)
    27. (---) Nelly Furtado - Folklore - 8.80 (88/10) NEW
    28. (---) Lady Gaga – The Fame Monster- 8.75 (245/28) NEW
    29. (25) REM - Automatic For The People - 8.74 (166/19)
    30. (28) Prince - Sign O The Times - 8.73 (131/15)*


    a couple of recent pop princesses PENETRATE the outer reaches of the Top 20 - interestingly, both artists better known albums (Loose/The Fame) fared much worse - the former scraping in at #100 and the latter not bothering the list at all. Classic albums from Human League, REM and Prince hold steady but still fail to dent the Top 20.

    Sheryl Crow was my favourite for a long time, I never really gave Wildflower enough time, but I'm glad I did eventually because it's a truly gorgeous album. Those 2 are head and shoulders above the rest though.

    Just adding to the commentary that "Wildflower" is a STAGGERING WORK OF GENIUS

    holding steady is the highest OST on the list, and Prince's highest of 2. He doesn't have any other albums submitted to date.

    on the plus side it does mean that Cyndi Lauper gets another album in the Top 100.

    18. (21) Amy Winehouse – Back To Black- 9.00 (315/35)*

    [​IMG]

    A lovely climb for a now pop LEGEND, whether you like it or not. Also the highest soul album on the list.

    has Lena Philipsson made the top twenty, or has funky SNUBBED HER AGAIN?

    I'm sure he forgot about her last time.

    Please note this is just a general question and not a criticism of this thread or of funky's work in general.

    17. (12) Madonna - Like A Prayer - 9.06 (299/33)*

    [​IMG]

    Madonna falls further from the Top Ten, notable by sliding past another Madonna album, so this is no longer her highest placed release on the list.

    16. (---) Cardigans – Long Day Before Daylight- 9.07 (136/15) NEW

    [​IMG]

    Second highest new entry - was quite surprised by this, as they're not discussed in detail on moopy and it's not even their most well known / successful album, but here they are, with a great performance on the list. Not the highest scandinavian act though, and not even excluding ABBA, oh HAI VOR

    I'm not a chicken, I just noticed that he DID answer my question. (I think).
