Oh and yes it says on the voting form minimum of 10, but that is a mistake that seandalai will fix. It is FIFTEEN. But please try do as many as you can.

Weighted: 1st choice (top of the ballot) gets 110 points, 2nd choice gets 98 points, 3rd gets 96 points, and so on down to 2 points for 50th place. Unweighted: Every choice gets 102 points
That seems massively wrong to me.

Of the ones above, Cop. Although it's my favourite.

not much consensus after that I think, some people prefer the more abrasive early stuff and some people prefer the later stuff
I've only heard about half their albums anyway, so somebody else should probably answer this. I really like the live album Swans are Dead.
― aspiring barkitect (silverfish), Thursday, 30 August 2012 20:42 (8 months ago) Permalink
a good few bands have lots of albums nominated so it will be interesting to see if the general consensus albums do best in the poll or if an 'ilm favourite' will beat it.

Out of interest how do others whittle down their shortlists?
― Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 30 August 2012 21:33 (8 months ago) Permalink
i start by picking out and setting aside the albums i love best of all, those that i know will be somewhere in my top 10-20. that sets a good bar of comparison for other stuff.
then i run through the rest of the list a few times and pick off outliers: albums with weak spots, those that i "respect" more than love or loved once but no longer get as much out of. the final trimming is always the worst part, and i'm often driven to more-or-less arbitrary cuts.

Time to campaign for albums. An album I hope lots of you check out is this one:Candlemass - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus http://open.spotify.com/album/3BHQVxQ9W2uqQM4zMf9CGo
One of the first doom metal albums and arguably still the best.
Sadly Trouble - Psalm 9 is not on spotify so for some US doom metal try:Saint Vitus - Born Too Late http://open.spotify.com/album/6CyKigkGRtW3xTDZczqlRC
― Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 30 August 2012 23:39 (8 months ago) Permalink
100% data-free analysis: no real consensus after COG, but Filth and Cop are considered their best noise records, which is to say simultaneously fetishized and dismissed (critics respect them, but never seem to like them much). the first EP, when it's considered at all, is either written off as embryonic or lumped in with Filth (sorta like Young God/Cop). Holy Money and Greed are IMO underrated, but are often considered too slick and/or unintentionally humorous. also, the music from this period is generally thought to be better represented live, and Public Castration is the document of choice in this regard. so, for the 80s, "consensus" of top Swans picks - based solely on my subjective guesswork - looks like: COG >Public Castration>Filth/Cop as 1-2-3/4 (Filth on occasion lauded for "rocking", and Cop for brutality).

― Hellhouse, Thursday, 30 August 2012 23:48 (8 months ago) Permalink

I def meant the two SY albums when I said SST was going to fill out the top 5, but it was an unfair jibe since one of the SST Sonic Youth records made my top 3...
I def predict Swans are going to do very well, which is what happens when you release the unofficially unanimous album of the present year. I'm thinking Children of God will be top 10
