You are released - The Agnes Discography Rate (Finished)

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Empty Shoebox, Jul 1, 2019.

  1. God kväll till alla.

    So, due to a momentary misjudgement, I have decided to run a rate.

    Who are we rating? Well, as if the title didn’t give it away, It’s recently returned from The dungeon indefinite hiatus Agnes Carlsson, or Agnes as she is better known.


    So please join for the next few weeks as we explore and celebrate the 2005 Idol winner, 2009 Melodifestivalen finalist and forum legend by assigning numbers to songs that she has released.

    However, you will not have to put up with my nonsense for the whole thing, as I have a co-host who is a lot nicer than I am and that is @WowWowWowWow. You may have noticed that neither of us is Swedish, which may seem like an odd choice to present an artist who is best known in Sweden. If it makes you feel any better, I am Fake Swedish, because I just live here, and @WowWowWowWow is Honorary Swedish, because he once met Sussie from Lilli & Sussie.

    If you have never participated in a rate before, here are the basics. If you have, please read this bit anyway. It’s like the in-flight safety briefing, you always watch it, just in case.

    In the post immediately below this, I will write out the song list. Please listen to all the songs on the song list, and assign each of them a score between zero (0) and ten (10) inclusive. Decimals are allowed, but fractions are not, unless they can be expressed as decimals (so ¼ is fine, but ⅓ is not acceptable)

    Score them any way that you want, but be advised that we will be revealing them in ascending order of average score, so you should consider giving lower scores to the songs that you like less, and higher scores to the songs that you like more.

    You are permitted to give one song a score greater than ten, with a maximum of eleven, but only one song. For example, you cannot give two songs a ten point five. There is no requirement to do this. If you desire, you can have all your scores between zero and ten.

    Once you have scored all the songs, and are happy with your scores, please send them in a direct message / personal message / conversation to both @WowWowWowWow and myself.

    If you would like, you can send commentary with your scores. This is not mandatory, but it is encouraged. Feel free to send whatever you think, shade, sass, praise, random things you spotted in the video, anything.

    If there is a particular remix or version of a song that you prefer over the one that we have provided, feel free to rate that version, but please tell us that you did.

    Votes must be submitted by 4 August 2019 at 00:00 CEST. That’s five weeks. One week for each album. That should be enough.

  5. You can all post now by the way. Thread setup continues, but we have all of our reserved posts.

    For any of you asking "will @Empty Shoebox be the villain of her own rate?" The answer is of course 'No'. The rate villain will be geoblocking.
  6. I can't tell if this is a joke or auto-correct gone awry.

    I'm here to prop up Dance Love Pop (not that it will need it - hopefully) and drag Stronger. Except for Love Is All Around, obvs.
  7. Okay Little Mix and now this. My rate summer is booked.
  8. What we are not going to do is forget (Baby) I Want You Gone.

  9. I didn't.

  10. Barely half an hour in and we're already onto our first argument.

  11. SO many potential winners

    But this is the one.

  12. I only know like two Agnes songs but I might give this a try.
  13. As a UK Agnes Latecomer I have such issue with her mixes. Like I think I Need You Now would be my 11....but the dance version...(and not that god awful butchered UK Radio Edit)
  14. Dance Love Pop and Veritas are two of my most played pop albums, get into it!
  15. This reminds me, if people do have a favourite version of a song that isn't in the playlist up above, feel free to rate that. It's still the same song. Just please mention that you are, and maybe post a link to it in the thread to allow others to do the same.

    And on the playlist, If the link is geoblocked in the YouTube playlist, try the individual song list in the second post. There's some we've had to sub in live recordings for, and others that we've had no choice but to use a proxy, but that link should work. If you still can't listen to something, again let us know. @WowWowWowWow and I have most of these songs on .mp3, so we could always upload them to YouTube for the couple of weeks before we get a copyright strike or something.
  16. I can honestly say her discography is right up your alley and you will be thanking yourself for hearing it, very quickly.
  17. I should be able to get this doooone. My Dance Love Pop average will be crazy high.
