Pierre0609 would like to see more 90s, 00s, and 10s from a list created in 2001. Typical of his generation. I like this list. Too bad it is over 10 years old so gets no credit in chart scoring.

Not varied enough to my mind. Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michael Jackson with more than one album each ? C'mon...

Astral Weeks is far too low. Also, any "best album ever" list without Led Zeppelin IV is not a list I can endorse.
