6/26/2017 – Hello Everyone! Yes, I am alive! I have been doing full-time work not allowing me to update the site (this site takes a bit of work to keep going so I figured best to just leave it alone than do mediocre work on it) but am looking soon into new opportunities that will allow the site to expand and grow – not overnight but perhaps within a couple months. Thanks for continuing to visit and hopefully some good news will be on the way! – Darin

    First off, I love this quiz. Thanks for making it. But just fyi, I can’t get it to accept the title for D’Angelo’s #1 ranked 2014 album, “Black Messiah.”

    Darkness on the Edge of Town (that’s got to be the Springsteen from 78, right?) doesn’t work. Also, I don’t think there’s enough (any?) time bonuses – I assume you get them for knowing every album from a year, but that’s tough to do. There should at least be some other bonuses – for identifying each number 1, for instance, or some general “100 albums” or “200 albums” bonuses. Even trying to get all the top 3 is really hard in the time.

      fixing now – making the bonuses for total songs lower totals and adding a few min to beginning time.
      1. 0
        Yeah, that’s really helpful. Now I end up giving up because I’ve run out of things I know, rather than racing the clock. Another error – Janet Jackson’s 1986 album is “Control”. (Nasty was the name of the lead single).
