Beethoven's 9th, especially my listed recording/album ... then all the "Greatest Classical" selections from the top down on my list (and the hundreds I havent rated/ranked yet Wink

Maybe not exactly what you meant though... Very Happy

For Rock, I used to rate lots of them before Scaruffi throughout the 2000s, and once he rated it they were usually the same or very close, particularly after circa 2006 as my ratings scale got increasingly similar to his. I think Ys was the highest one (8 at the time, more recently a 9 for me).

Theyre fewer and farther between these days. With how busy my life is, efficiency for me is very important, and I dont have time to go through lots of lower rated works to find the better ones. So I "use" Scaruffi for this for the most part (therefore I dont often discover many before him)

That said, I think Father Murphy's Croce and Dirty Beaches Stateless (7.5 each) are the highest rated Rock on my list that he hasnt rated yet. Though there were lots of Jazz before recently when he finally got around to them (we agreed about 75% overall ... above 80% pre 90s).


Actually, add Hval's Apocalypse girl (7.6), Girl Band Holding Hands With Jamie (7.6) and Pyrrhon's latest (7.9) though these will need to be revisited while I am going through so many of my selections to see if they still hold up. Holter's Aviary might be up there too, though I havent rated it yet (so not actually sure) and dont know if I will get to it (so much to assimilate) before he does

Good choice. Have you listened to Blood Bitch? I like them about equally.

Thanks craola, Hval is a fascinating artist. I would recommend to anyone that is a fan of hers, to delve into Jane Siberry & Julia Holter's best (especially Tragedy, Ekstasis, Aviary ...When I Was a Boy, No Borders Here, The Walking, Speckless Sky...) if not done already
