The works on the 86th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works are currently the 69th percentile, meaning that we've recommended only 31% of the 6473 works on our list more strongly than them. But we're going to pick some to recommend a little more or less strongly:

This tier currently has 107 works, so I've divided it into 3 parts of 35 or 36 works each. From each part, we'll move the 5 work(s) that get the absolute most votes all the way up to the 84th tier, and the next 15 of them up to the 85th tier, while the work(s) that get the absolute fewest votes will be demoted to the 87th tier.

All the works will be able to move again when we vote on the tiers they land on.

Each participant gets:

+1 votes: as many as you want
+2 votes: up to six -- but you must have more +1 votes than +2 votes
+3 votes: up to five -- but you must have more +2 votes than +3 votes
+4 votes: up to four -- but you must have more +3 votes than +4 votes
+5 votes: up to three -- but you must have more +4 votes than +5 votes
+6 votes: up to two -- but you must have more +5 votes than +6 votes
+7 votes: up to one -- but you must have more +6 votes than +7 votes


Voting on this thread will close 14 days from the timestamp of this post, though if I'm late to close it you can still vote until I announce that it's closed.

I will tally the votes on a Google sheet.

Have fun! Also, please be considerate! Someone, hopefully, will be influenced by our selections!
