How do you feel about Kid A moving up the chart?

Why are almost all of the albums below OK CPU rated higher than OK CPU?
>>
>>61821823
One word: contrarians
>>
>>61821823
Because they're better albums
>>
>better than King Crimson

The fuck
>>
>>61821846
>>61821870

That doesn't explain the ranking order
>>
>>61821823
rym has some non-disclosed ranking algorithm. It's to avoid people being able to mess with the rankings. The album rating is one factor of the ranking itself.

Otherwise, you'd just see a buncha one-rating five star albums at the top, ya know?
>>
>>61821823
because OKC has far more votes, percentage wise its higher. also because of what
>>61822139
said.
>>
>>61821823
>>61822001
obviously because it has the most ratings on the site
read about their weighting system

Every fucking porn website does this

Eh. I never liked Radiohead much, but I get the appeal.

>>61822286
horrid taste
>>
>>61822286
not only is your taste all around terrible but TVU&N is better than all those other albums combined
>>
>>61822395
lmao
>>
>>61822410
He's right though.
>>
>>61822467
I don't care. I hate The Velvet Underground for what they stand for, if I'm being quite honest. They're the epitome of cultivated, image-conscious, "bohemian," "auteur," hacks. So I don't really care what any of their music sounds like, if I'm being completely honest.

But if I did care, I'd point out it's shit.

Stop listening to music
>>61822636

Not only are they not this but this perfectly describes The Beatles, which is why I find your ranking of Abbey Road as #1 to be even more perplexing now.

>i hate image over music
>i don't listen to music for the music
You kind of contradict your own "criticism"

Consider suicide, not because you dislike TVU&N, but because you have shit taste and deserve to be castrated for having an opinion as baseless as yours.
>>
>>61822739
so mad VU fanboy lmao
>>
>>61821764
When did this happen???
>>
>>61822265
>>61821823
Because the total percentage of positive votes is higher. You know there are a lot of haters and trolls that just 0.5 any album. So, witth the magic algorythm of RYM, they've calculated which albums have better ratings based on the total amount of votes. (Or some shit like that)
>>
>>61821764
I think ITCOTCK and TV&N should be higher than the two PF albums
>>
this list shouldn't be taken any more seriously then the IMBD top 100 list lads. I hope you know that.
>>
>>61822848
Probs right after Fantano's video on it desu
>>
>>61823022
I don't know, is there a list of top albums that should be taken more seriously, other than your own list of favorites? Rolling Stone's list is basically just a list of the top selling albums from 1960-1978, with some Nirvana thrown in for conformity's sake. It seems RYM has a ranking curated by people who consider themselves buffs... none of these 7 albums make my personal top 100, but it seems like a reasonable summation of what people that have that put some thought into it think. I'd imagine if you polled people who don't self-identify as music nerds you get a list with Thriller, 1989, Best Of Celine Dion or something
>>

>I don't know, is there a list of top albums that should be taken more seriously, other than your own list of favorites?
I highly doubt it.
>>
>>61823022
The IMBD list is a fucking joke, worse than RYM which seems impossible.
>>
>>61823205

It's not that any of the albums listed in op's picture or in the top 100 (for the most part) on rym are bad by any means, it's more of a very small and selective group of music voted on by a large amount of people who consider themselves to be music-heads. It still leaves out a large amount of classical, jazz, and other genres, simply because less people listen to them, therefore all time is just the last 30-50 years for a lot of people. It's the same with imbd, people go out of their way to rate movies and think they watch a lot of movies yet a lot of the actual best movies of all time are buried under lots of others. Less so on rym though.
