This was my point exactly.

And they did include artists such as Boogie Down Productions, EPMD and Eric B. & Rakim.

i don't fucking read the Ruling Stoned

i am not surprised if the No. 1 spot goes to a Bruce Springsteen album

if I were the editor of the Stoned, the Marshall Mathers LP would be at No. 1

Has there been a poll to see what the favourite hip-hop album on this forum is, like we did with artists (Wu-Tang)

If not, it'd be pretty nice to do one, and what would be the best way of going about it?

We could probably do a similar set up like the last one. The discussions for why people pick certain albums over others should be interesting.

How was that done? I wasn't really posting much around the time that was done.

Well it started out with a thread so that people could post what albums they thought would be good nominations and then it went into this process of collecting all of that information and randomly putting them together into groups of 5 to be voted on

it'd make more sense for the end result to be a top 10 or 20 list rather than one favourite I think for albums.

well a top 10 list can be made by the time all the voting is said and done.

or instead of going all the way to find out the one favorite tournament style like for the artists/group.

we could stop at top 10.

Well, just do a poll of the top 10 to find out their ordering.

alternatively, we could do a top 5 or 10 of the 80's, 90's and 00's.

how are we going to decide the top 10 though? there has to be a lenghty voting process to get down to the top 10

yes and based off of the success of MB's top 10 hip hop albums we could do another one where it narrows down to specific decades.
