I didn't mean to officially announce threads/clubs to be dead if they aren't

If you get'em going again, perhaps you could benefit from some of the suggestions hopefully generated by this thread.

Sounds pretty good to me Tore: my suggestion would be making just one club which changes genre on a weekly basis in order to cover all the bases and draw in as many different people as possible. After a particular musical category is chosen, then you could make the polls for specific album choices and whatnot.

I really like your idea! I'd participate.

I think the best way to keep it "fresh" is to have maybe 2 or 3 options for us to pick from and review.......like, all different in sound or genre. It'd make things interesting. And maybe it should be encouraged to try and pick the album choice you'd normally NOT listen to? I know that'd make it interesting to me. I don't normally listen to country, and so having a Garth Brooks album as 1 of the picks would be something new to me......even if I still don't end up liking that type of music/artist/band/whatever/etc./etc.

.........BUT I could see people complaining about the selections because they are not willing to choose something they would normally not listen to.

Perhaps a category/genre club with a non-category optional album per week?

Yeah I like the idea, I'm just particular keen for set genres. Like I am open minded but these days I've expanded my interests very electronic so to speak. However I want to keep my mind open and would love to explore some rock/indie music that I haven't yet listened to.

I think if there are more category/genre clubs doing this, say one rock, one jazz and one electronica club, then any member could just join in on the club's homework assignment which seems the most interesting.

So right now, I'm thinking set genres/categories.

I'd like to see what kind of clubs people would like to see. Like what genres or categories would you be interested in?

Yup genres seem like a cool idea, I can't think of any genre I wouldn't want to have included. I guess the more the merrier.

Alright, not many responses in here, but I've found some initiative and after some thinking, have started an album club for prog & fusion albums Those who are interested in this genre or those who think they would be if they gave it a shot should check it out!

Also, I'd like to encourage others to do the same for the categories/genres they wish to discuss!

I always find these things a bit boring after a while because everything is imposed on you. There's not really any personal choice to keep you interested apart from the off chance you might get your choice picked once every few months.

How I would do it is simple.
One person suggests any band they like, regardless of all this genre stuff.
The people involved then pick out any album in the bands discography & say what they think of it.

That way there's much more personal involvement & more choice.
