Music Banter's Essential Collections Discussion
 
OK. This is merely the discussion aspect of an idea I have. I would like to have essential album lists compiled by MB members relevant to the various genre forums we have. These will be compiled top tens with reviews written by various members. Hopefully they will act as guides for both noobs and members wishing to jump into a new genre.

A few basic out lines I have so far:

Lists must be between 5 and 10 albums with max points given to first place down to 1 for last place. EG If you can only come up with 6 albums, then first place gets 6 points, 2nd 5 points etc. If it's a ten album list then it's ten for first etc.
Only one artist per submiited list. (so you cant nominate 3 clash albums in a 5 strong list!)
Particular genre lists stay open for 2 weeks.

Participation:

I would like people to have a say in what categories we should make these lists. Please be reasonable in your requests. Don't ask for a genre that isn't particulary beneficial to the community. We can split Punk into pre 1990 and post 1990 for example. Let's get some input before we begin!

Punks a difficult one with all the sub-genres. A pre 1990 split sounds good.

I would prefer not to but I have to concede that a lot of younger members are into other areas of Punk that sound quite different from the first wave.... and I would'nt be too pleased to see a Green Day album nestled in with the Clash and G.B.H etc!

Indie/Alternative is another difficult one. I guess we'll just have to let people interpret that for themselves outside of Post-punk, Shoegaze, Indie Pop and the like.

So come on people. What genres should be included?

First off, I really like this idea but I don't really understand that whole point system you were talking about. Why are there points?

As for genres, I wish more people listened to classical music on MB so I would be happy to help in classical. But rather than albums I think just a type of work by a composer could be used as an album and then maybe a recommened recording. (Example: Beethoven's Sonatas, recommended recording: Claudio Arrau). Then, within the list of 10, there could be like 2 per period (baroque, romantic, etc...). Something along the lines of this I think would work well.

There are points to create a top 10, otherwise I would have to put them into order personally which wouldn't be fair. I will do the point scoring anyhow.

I assume metal would be a part of it, but does that mean we have one for every subgenre of metal? Or at least every subgenre anyone gives a toss about? It would have to be done that way but thats gonna be ALOT of categories!

My personal solution would be to put it into decades which would then incorporate the many sub genres without having to widen the net? so 70's/80's/90's and 00's. Post Rock should have it's own though.

Hmm I suppose that might work? Thats covering a hell of a lot of ground though, especially when you try to narrow your choices down. Would it not work to maybe just cover whatever genre anyone is willing to cover and leave those that no one wants to contribute to?
