This is actually a decent list, apart from U2 being in the top 10. Firstly, In Utero should actually be higher! It's better than Ten and Achtung put together. And why is everyone calling for Dookie? How is Dookie better than Definitely Maybe, Superunknown, and Different Class?

I really like Dr. Dre's the Chronic, but that album is NOT better than OK Computer. I actually think Illmatic is better than the Chronic. In Utero is way too high as well. Dookie should've made the top 10 easily.

Compared to ‘Rolling Stone’’s 1980s list, this one is even more plagued by the same problems they have encountered since punk and hardcore emerged from the West Coast at the beginning of the 1980s.

The beginning of the 1990s was an extremely creative period with the emergence of important metal bands (though I’m not a metal fan, I like to emphasise the genre’s cultural importance) like Pantera and international figures Sepultura and Meshuggah, who developed the genre to become even harder than it was in the 1980s. There was also an extremely powerful underground completely ignored by ‘Rolling Stone’ of which I have more personal interest as seen with bands like Slint, Mercury Rev, Laika, Band of Susans – all omitted in favour of annoying “lo-fi” bands like Beck and Pavement.

The decade lost almost completely its creative spark by the close, so fairly the first five or six years should have more of the top albums than 66 of 100.

Most of this list if baffling. I've never had too much of an issue of their "best ever" lists, because that's hard to do. But they ALWAYS seem to fuck up the decade charts (2000s is EVEN worse). Crazysexycool over Violator, Dummy, and Pinkerton? They chose Protection as the best Massive Attack album of the 90s? The Soft Bulletin barely made the list? Not a single Modest Mouse album? The Chronic over OK Computer? Selected Ambient Works II over the the original?

So many great albums not here. I agree neither The Chronic nor Yankee Hotel a Foxtrot should be in the top 50

Not that bad, the order is a mess and Dr Dre at number 2? Give me a break! Missing quite a few essentials too.
