Beatles, Beatles and Beatles, it's so modern and original! This chart should contain a bit more of 90s 00s and 10s as some are really better than Marvin gay or Joni Mitchell to my mind

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

From NickVolos 10/08/2013 01:10
One of the same: 25% of the best albums are made by just an oligarchy of artists (7 to be exact). True, these are great albums, but maybe it is time to consider expanding their vision and start considering other artists with equally good output.
