That's The Way of the World
Ann Arbor, Michigan (PRWEB) March 29, 2009
The readers of SoulTracks (http://www.soultracks.com), America's most popular soul music website, are choosing the greatest soul music albums of all time, one decade at a time. Over ten thousand votes were cast in the first poll, which rated the best albums of the the 1970s, and the winning album was Earth Wind & Fire's "That's The Way of the World," with Marvin Gaye's seminal "What's Goin' On" finishing a close second, less than 1% behind the winner.
Now through April 6th, SoulTrackers will be voting for the best soul music albums of the 1980s, including albums like Michael Jackson's "Thriller," Prince's "Purple Rain" and Anita Baker's "Rapture." Upcoming polls will include the albums of the 1960s, 1990s and 2000s, as well as the best Contemporary Gospel albums. And later this Spring, voting will begin for the greatest soul songs of all time.
"We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the response to our polls by our readers," said SoulTracks publisher Chris Rizik. "Our readers are informed and passionate about their music, and the large numbers that voted and the depth of knowledge shown in the comments we received again demonstrate the special place that soul music holds in American culture in the 21st Century."
