Jimmypages does have a point. Metallica and Nirvana are hardly "hipster bands". Now if we were arguing the merits of Neutral Milk Hotel (know their name but have never heard any of their music) when it comes to the 90s I could see it.jimmypages59 wrote:Titan3510 wrote;

I don't even know what NPR and Slant are! I imagine you stay far away from them, not because of music elitism, but because they do not cater for your tastes in music, whatever music they may cater for.
I do not deny that certain magazines and lists persist in Music Elitism, but surely this site in general is a prime example of Diva Elitism.
I fail to see how bands like Metallica or Nirvana are elitist anyway, I could understand some obscure bands or albums, but not hugely popular acts like the two mentioned, who have managed to capture (and continue to) a wide audience beyond their original Metal, Grunge, Rock genre.
I forgot about Janet, in general! Yes, add her to the diva list.biscuits wrote:You've forgotten about 'The Velvet Rope', which I'm expecting to be one of the highest ranked diva albums.JSparksFan wrote:Voted.
It's funny that people think Britney even has a chance at winning this. It's gon' be a clash of the 90's divas here: Mariah vs. Madonna vs. Whitney vs. Celine.
agree but you should not mention rolling stone anymore.imo, now its a magazine for...divas,old men n sales and has almost nothing to do with real musicNothingFails wrote:A lot of the Pitchfork/Rolling Stone bands are pretentious wankery, but there's been a lot of acts I've checked out because of glowing reviews and fell in love with.
This is true. According to Rolling Stone, U2 and Bruce are the two most relevant bands in 2012. I love them both (and Wrecking Ball is the best album of 2012 so far IMO) but seriously, they are the most important *current* acts?space75 wrote:agree but you should not mention rolling stone anymore.imo, now its a magazine for...divas,old men n sales and has almost nothing to do with real musicNothingFails wrote:A lot of the Pitchfork/Rolling Stone bands are pretentious wankery, but there's been a lot of acts I've checked out because of glowing reviews and fell in love with.
Now you said that, all the btches will change their votes and omit j.lo from their lists!Star wrote:Can people stop crying about divas such as Janet Jackson, Madonna, Mariah, Celine, Britney!!!!
It's Jennifer Lopez that's doing outstandingly well in the countdown!
You see that I'm from Northern Ireland and that's the first thing you say? Really? Just because this is a countdown of the 90s, doesn't mean you have to have some warped backwards view of Northern Ireland.jimmypages59 wrote:You a Hun or a Fenian Urban’ or does it all just pass you by?
Discrimination? Sectarianism? Gosh. I get that many people won't have heard those albums, but this countdown is about personal taste. While I would have liked certain albums to make it over others, I'm not going to kick up a fuss because people didn't agree with me.jimmmypages59 wrote: Blood Sugar’, Blue Lines, I agree how can they not be in a best albums of the 90’s. I’ll tell you why, discrimination, sectarianism or just plain lack of a depth of knowledge about music or a want to have a depth.
I know she wasn't the biggest singer of the 90s in the UK. But at the end of the day people from all over the world voted in this countdown and clearly liked her. Besides, all 3 Oasis albums made this list as well - even "Be Here Now", which was received no better than a Mariah album critically. Not that that even matters.jimmypages59 wrote:She wasn’t in the UK...bands like Oasis, (where Star and Wayne are from) absolutely shat upon this relatively unknown US warbler.
UKMix may predominantly ignore certain types of music, but at least posters on the whole don't belittle people who have a different taste in music on here. Besides, there's plenty of posters with a wide taste in music......not that it matters.jimmypages59 wrote:No you’re correct, it is not NME or Pitchfork or Spin…it’s the pop version of it!

I look forward to discussing them with you. Although I'm young, I may not know them allcrazycrazy wrote:Look forward to discussing all of the albums coming up.
