Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

I really love the Bruce pick. When I saw it, it was a no brainer imo.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

72, you really think MJ's only possible value is in record sales?

Ok but he's massively critically acclaimed at least on his first 2 albums, both of which you see on lists of greatest albums ever made all the time. All of his albums (all of them!) shot to the top of the charts when he died. Unheard of. Everybody just completely forgot about his umm issues and you can see how popular he still is...

I'd have to tell him Nath's as well. No issues with with I'd assume? I'll send it in a minute.

My writeup is almost done, just need to apply some pics and some youtube and it'll be ready for after Nath's.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

It's funny that no one has mentioned this yet, but Michael Jackson music is also incredible. He is not just an incredibly popular, but critically mediocre musician. His music was really good and is still really good almost 30 years later.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

NozeCandy, if you find out the 5 pick before the morning and haven't published your pick, can you PM me the 5-6 picks in advance. I'd like to get the writeup done before I head to work - I don't want to cause a delay.

plus his output sucks, and his pedo-ness (and overall weirdness) isn't something random that occurred due to variance. all of the freakshow re-occurs at least 9/10 times for him...
This is lol. Dude was a star from like '72 until the early 90s before the first abuse allegations were made. He is also the top selling musician in history.

Anyone who wants one will be able to get a great producer.

Basically every hip hop artist alive wants to work with him if you push his career back 20 years (so he is peaking today).

I thought he was #1 although any one of a few people is obv. ok.

I'm almost certain I know who Nath is picking.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

I got destroyed in back to back games and all I want to do is keep playing. Anyone that called a game epic before needs to take it back and only use it for SC2.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

I would have taken Dylan #1. Just gives your label instant critical credibility, plus he's super prolific and possibly the GOAT songwriter.

The top of this draft is all pretty interchangeable though.

Makes sense. I couldn't guess who Nath was going to take but that works.

My number one is still on the board, but I can't argue with any of these picks.

Dylan should have been #2. #1 still on the board.

I'll give Nath's pick a little time to stew.

Winning pick coming up at 10:30 EST.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

Dylan wasn't who I was expecting and wasn't in my top 3(which I think makes up the top tier), but hes still very solid value.

Also, F60, I agree that my "not first rounder" was way too harsh regarding Bruce

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

doesn't seem like he wrote any of his music before "Off the Wall", where he penned 2.5/10 songs. He's credited with writing 4/9 on "Thriller" ("Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", "The Girl is Mine", "Beat It", and "Billie Jean"), and 9/11 on "Bad". Then he wrote about half of "Dangerous", then his last two albums were pretty forgettable. So yeah, his value is largely as a performer, which isn't terrible, and a bit as a writer/producer (if someone wants they can add up the songs he's written in his life, seems like ~50 maybe). does he even play an instrument (pretty sure i've seen him playing the piano, can he play a guitar or anything else?)? it's just unclear is he adds a ton as a collaborative studio musician.

like i said, it's probably a good pick if he builds his studio the right way from here on in, i was just trying to counter the "zomg draft over" type of sentiment.

Don't know if I would have taken Dylan at #3, but it's a solid pick.

Ah yeah Dylan, good one. I think you convinced me he's #2 due to the songwriting aspect.

I'm running out of excuses for not having it I guess.

There are probably at least 50 people that are legit first rounders imo.
