BCB's Top 100 Albums of the 21st Century - And the winner is...

Postby PENK » 07 Nov 2017, 11:54

Thanks to everyone who voted on this. Quite a spread of albums were chosen - over 700 in total - but there was enough consensus that nearly 100 of them had at least three votes.

A quick recap of the system: albums are ranked first by number of votes, then by number of points. Users had 150 points to split between their 30 albums and while some went with a simple five-points-per-album system, others chose to split their points differently to reflect their absolute favourites.
So Goat Boy may have awarded 80 points to Shine On by Jet, but as that was its only vote, it still trails behind Merry Christmas Baby by Rod Stewart, because both Griff and Fange gave that one a point apiece. Got it?

I will post the albums in an all-action multimedia style with a picture of the cover, the title, information about the votes, points and who voted, and a link to a Youtube selection from the album (based on my personal preference or, if I don't know or indeed like the album personally, Google's suggestion). If you spot any mistakes (broken links, images not working etc) just let me know!

I will put the results up in batches of ten - I'll try to do it daily - and you can comment on this thread.

Only on BCB would Dylan be above TV On The radio.

Surprised Dear Science is not a bit higher but then I guess it's fine margins.

It's a great record anyway

I almost voted for Modern Times myself. It's great.
