    That's a great idea!

    Quid pro quo: When dealing with discrete quantities, you should use the word "fewer" in place of "less."

    This list confirmed what I suspected - I'm not representative for the consensus music taste of the SDUGF. I've got two from my favorite list finding their way to the top 100: Dark Side of the Moon, and And Justice for All.

    Thanks! I said 20%, but I figured the real number was around 10%. The range was right though.

    I think you're right, but I'll toss in a hypothesis that might explain it a bit: the 60s and the 70s could offer less artists and bands, and thus the list-making on this forum has concentrated on these few big shots. The 90s and 00s exploded with a lot more artists joining, but for each new, the cake piece diminished - people today are perhaps much more able (than the generation prior to this) to tailor their own music taste by seeking out "obscurities", or semi-obscurities. Therefore the newer music won't get as many votes. I have no idea if this is plausible though.

    Plus, I really believe that kids can adopt their parents' music taste much easier than the case for the opposite direction. Case in point, I voted for DSOTM as my #4 favorite, as I believe a lot of other youngsters did as well. My dad would never embrace Ghost Reveries.

    Plus II, I don't remember last time there was a survey over the members' ages here, but I think the bell-curve was skewed towards the ol' geezers.

    That and, to me at least, albums were more concise and didn't have as many throw away songs on them from that era.

    Yeah, I didn't think about that, but I fully agree with you.



    Edit: thanks a bunch, Keith, for this effort! Very entertaining and interesting. Vault?

    Seems reasonable to me that this would be a significant contributing factor. Another is that there was more guitar-based music generated in the 60s and 70s than we see today, proportionately speaking. Being that this is a guitar forum, I'm not surprised to see so many albums from those decades appear prominently on the SDUGF Top 100.

    The results support my contention that 1971 was the best year for rock music, with eight albums showing in the top 100. The next closest years were 1973, 1975, 1976 and 1977, each with five album appearances. The data I gathered is hardly a representative sample, but I'm sticking to my guns just the same.

    - Keith

    Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14
