A good representation of what the genral public consider great which is why you get dire straits queen Coldplay and madonna high in list. Fair enough. This to me makes it quite interesting compared to a list compiled by some trendy mag.

Oh, 28 albums in common! Great, that should be ... oh my god ... what ... what is this? Seriously all 35 points here are for One Step Beyond because no one has that on a chart, but what on earth is the rest of this doing here? I mean, yeah, 27 other albums are goo, but basically the entire rest of the chart is just ... just garbage.

U2, Michael Jackson, Oasis, Madonna, and Guns n Roses all above REVOLVER? Seriously?

This may be the worst recognized list I've ever seen.

Some good albums in there, but madonna in the top 10, and a Robbie Williams album? As well as Dido, Human League and duran duran. No, no, no, no and no. Looks like they tried to keep multiple albums from one artist to a minimum, but that's just resulted in it being padded out with some shockers.
