After three-plus years of covering the most acclaimed albums of all time, based on the mathematical formulations and algorithms of Swedish mathematician Henrik Franzon, the Counterbalance team has decided to shake things up. Our esteemed editors have prepared a few questions for Klinger and Mendelsohn that should help apprise readers of the new paradigm. Do not be alarmed.
Counterbalance is about to undergo a revamp. What’s the situation?
Klinger: Essentially, we’ve decided that we’ll be moving away from covering the Great List from top to bottom. Instead we’ll be talking/discussing/debating the albums that mean a great deal to at least one of us. They may be albums that are featured on the Great List, but they might be albums that at least one of us thinks should be reassessed. I suspect that we’ll continue to refer back to the list in our discussions, since it’s pretty well ingrained in our thought processes now.
