Allmusic Styles → Wikipedia Articles

  • Question
  • Updated 3 months ago
I've noticed the different styles on the website can possibly correspond with Wikipedia articles on the genres (i.e. Alternative Pop/Rock on Allmusic → Alternative rock on Wikipedia, possibly). The problem is, I don't know which Allmusic styles correspond to which Wikipedia articles. If there is something like a 'Conversion Sheet', can i see it. If not, could anybody post a list connecting Allmusic styles to their corresponding Wikipedia articles? I'm putting a list of my favourite bands together and I want to list their genres down. Thanks

Hi Richard,
I don't believe a list of AllMusic styles matched to Wikipedia styles exists.

AllMusic has a fairly large but organized and structured set of styles that are curated by editors. Wikipedia, by nature, allows for community contributions and fans to add in information that they want to see represented. Both of these approaches have merit but I don't know of any definitive list where the styles are connected across both sites.

I am not interested in the correlation of one site to another. I am only asking for credit of the work I did vis-a via Twin Engine. If you will look The Original Blues Magoos Ralph Scala keys Ronnie Gilbert bass. Find the members the Blues Magoos Los Angeles line in 1970 you will see Ralph Scala Keys Ron Gilbert Bass and Ted Munda and later Joey Stec guitar. If you look at The Dependables credits Ralph Scala Keys Ron Gilbert Bass and Joey Stec guitar. Now Twin Engine Ralph Scala keys Joey Stec guitar and who on bass. Which one of these things is not like the others? I played bass on all 12 tracks. Proof: on one song I quoted a bass passage what was the quote where did I get it and on what track is the quote on. I can answer all three can Randy Fuller?

Trying to follow here. Are you asking for your bass credit to be added to the album Twin Engine by the band Twin Engine? Are the credits listed in the liner notes for that album?

This page has some detail on updating credits:
