Awesome. Thank you so much. I also see that Starmaker is both of our top albums of 2020 so far! Hell yes.

You have quite hard taste to get a handle on, a lot of prog in your highest rated stuff and that's not what the 90s has to offer really....but the 90s are my specialty I guess. If you like Godspeed YBE then Mogwai's first three or four albums are essential. Also Bark Psychosis are another I'd expect you to find interesting. If you like Slint then listen to The For Carnation which are sort of a spin off band, - that one came out in 2000.

I agree! I’m trying to same. I’ve done a top 100 from the 70s list and 2010s. Still really need to dive deep in 80s and 90s. Any recommendations?
Mar 29, 2020
I've got a top 100 (and 20 under 50% rated albums) for every year back to 1987 (excluding 2020 obviously) - hopefully top 100s will fill out for all the 60s, 70s and 80s over time. There's too much music :D

That’s pretty nifty! Awesome!

If you want to see what I rate in the middle range check my 2.5 and 3 ratings on my RYM account

I only rate my top 100 for each year so 50-65 scores rarely qualify - instead I give them a NR.

I’d find it hard to score in that range anyway - a 51% compared to a 56%? Mediocre range.

Eventually expect to see no ratings in the 50-69% range - might take a year or so to come about.

You probably get this question a lot (and you probably get that phrase a lot), but I was wondering why you have a lack of 50s ratings?
Mar 26, 2020
Yessir there is a lot. Good luck!

I'll try and work through most of their stuff but, y'know, real slowly at there's a lot of it ;)

Surprisingly, their 2019 output is pretty good with “The Universe Also Collapses”, and “Expresso II” feels very innovative and groovy being an instrumental record. They have a lot of really zany albums too that I can’t wait for you to hear hahahaha.

Funny you should bring them up, they’re actually on my list to investigate further - I only know that one and Teapot. Which album(s) of theirs do you most recommend?

I see you just rated a Gong album. What's your favorite out of their catalog?
