I already had all the full size LPs, so I didn't have a need for the mini-replicas when I decided to get them on CD.

But that is the set to get if you don't have the LPs, so you get all the artwork.

will do badly, I assume you mean. But that's kind of a given because that sort of thing is rarely put into a non-compilation album. For similar reasons, everything '50s and earlier will be at a disadvantage as well.

Yes, will do badly. I should have specified, sorry.

My first thought was Automatic for the People.  But its already nominated.  Growing up, it was one of the few "current" CDs both me and my mother could enjoy together.  And Everybody Hurts still makes me tear up.

For the next poll I nominate Nevermind by Nirvana.

I missed out on the movie one, but I'll try not to miss out on this:

My nomination for the next vote:

Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! - DEVO

This is easily the best Devo album of all, as much as I like their other work.  It might not be for all tastes, but it's just fantastic.

I agree with wurwolf and Asbestos Bill on their predictions.

Sadly, I think my two favorite genres will be likely to do poorly: fusion jazz (esp. from the 70s) and what I call 'Westernized World' music (because the simpler label 'world music' includes the straight 'folk or cultural music' too).  'Westernized World' adapts world instruments and 'cultural music' to fit more with Western musical styles like jazz (e.g. most of Bill Laswell's output, AfroCelt Sound System, etc.).

I also think classical will be difficult to get on the list (though not impossible), because there are so many well-done versions of most of the best pieces (I mean really: how many times has Beethoven's 5th or 9th been recorded?  Now try and get any consensus on which is the best of all of them.)

What I think will do better?  More mainstream music prior to internet music access (i.e. anything that could have been had for free on a radio).  Also 'alternative' music, because it too could be found free to listen to (though with a bit more difficulty) and would be more likely to be listened to by others who found pop/light rock not completely to their liking.

Well, fuck, whaddya wanna do? How about we declare three winners and carry over the nominations with five and six votes? Of course, who's to say the poll isn't just gonna fuck us again? Goddamit.

I think they will be difficult to get on the list but not impossible, depending on how they're presented. I'm not a musicologist, but some of my favorites that I plan on nominating are representative of American music history (as well as being a joy to listen to). I've got a couple of Doc Watson and Frank Sinatra albums in mind, and also someone to represent the big band era (still trying to decide between Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, and so on). Music like that is important to our history and I'd like to see it remembered.

Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! - DEVO

I love it.  I will admit that it isn't their most accessible album but it is artistically their best and most influential.  If you are new to Devo, I'd either recommend Freedom of Choice or their last album Something for Everybody.  Are We Not Men is more stripped down or rather yet to be "overproduced."  But I don't mean overproduced as a bad thing: that's kind of the point since their message is about better tech with less substance.  Something for Everyone probably has my favourite use of auto-tuning (and it is heavily that) outside of Adventure Time.  You don't have to even pay attention to the messages of the songs to enjoy them, since they all have neat time signatures and hooks.

Best songs from Are We Not Men? would include Space Junk, Gut Feeling, Uncontrollable Urge and Mongoloid.

Though I admit I probably wouldn't vote for them due to my ignorance, I am in favour of that.
