Two endorsements. Hmmm. Will have to look for this one too.

I suppose I could start one up since no one is willing to (even though I am already running the Indie/Alternative one). I need to make a new thread, however, so I can have the original post's spot to edit and have as a schedule-setter.

You're already running an album club. I'll get this going again. We'll go with the Fuschia album.

Sorry man. It's my fault. I saw this thread getting posted in but disregarded it. I'll be sure to keep up from now on.

So for the uninitiated what's the idea behind the album clubs? Also for this particular thread what makes something folk?

Think of it like a book club, but instead of reading a book... we are all listening to an album. So, for a week, we listen to the album that got nominated, and on the following week, the person running the album club will start a thread so we all can discuss and give our opinions on it.

Basically, the point of an album club is to discover more music and/or be able to intelligently discuss/analyze/listen to it.

Also, what do you mean what makes something folk? It's a bit of a broad term to be honest... Folk has many sub-genres and can be found in different forms across the globe. It can be anywhere from the Hungarian composer, Béla Bartók, to the Scottish guitarist/songwriter, Bert Jansch. (I suppose it's a bit difficult to define). Also, a few sub-genres of folk include: folk rock, psych folk, freak folk, avant-folk, neofolk, progressive folk, folktronica, apocalyptic folk, etc. I'm not entirely sure, however, if you could consider folk-metal and folk-punk to be folk sub-genres or just sub-genres of metal and punk...

If this didn't help, then there is a Wikipedia article on it (which can be found here) and a debate about it on this site here.
