Looks good all in all.

I just have one minor issue: it doesn't look aesthetically pleasing. It's not because of me but because of other people looking at it and being overwhelmed by a list. And since we did aim for this to be accessible, I propose a simple color-coding system. For instance, all genre names in red, essential in blue, etc. This would also include making the main titles bold and using font-size for titles/subtitles in a relevant fashion.

As well (this really isn't necessary), but for essentials we can also add a small gif of the album cover.

I see what you're saying, but I don't think images are needed. I do think proper titles in bigger font, centered and underlined would make it look much better. I think it ought to have a small introduction paragraph or something as well.

Looks good.
Only thing I'd suggest is maybe bolding and underlining the genre names, and maybe just putting the "best of", "essential", "entry level" titles in italics. Just to help with the whole... Not one big mass of words aspect.

Otherwise, excellent work everyone. Looks a lot better than I expected it to, once it's all put together.

Certainly isn't! Still needs some polishing - mostly with aesthetics, as Contra said. Just text formatting, a couple of images.

I also think it needs a brief introduction to the thread itself at the top, just an explanation of what's going on ie how it's structured, how to use it and most importantly the fact that asking in the thread will get you the best recs

Looks good. Not sure the little braceted opinions are needed, but its only a minor issue

Bold, underline, italics, colour etc are a good idea though

I was thinking just this. Perhaps even an index so people know what's being covered here?

Oh, and of course: Good job everyone. High fives all around!

I was talking about the content, it's not changing. I wholly agree with you about the format though, see my post a few posts up, I said the exact same thing as you.

Bold/ make the genra names bigger. That's my recommendation.

Make the layout look just like the last one, otherwise I can't bear the pain of parting ways.

I agree with fixing the layout. Other than that, I think we're good.

Great job, everyone.
