Quibble all you want about the make-up, but this is an accurate reflection of the Rolling Stone list. Just a shame that it is capped at 100 entries.
Over 10 compilations? Really?
Great reflection of the readership of RS magazine in the early 00s. We're mostly middle-aged now (some older). This list is OUR list, and the 20-somethings and 30-somethings who have time out from their studies or MacJobs to write crap about classic rock and R&B based lists should go back to their dorms or apts and listen to Radiohead till their ears bleed.
where is the rest? can anybody link me the rest 400 Albums? i can not go farther than 100.
Misses albums past 2003 ofcourse, so not as great as their more uptodate list.
I like almost everything on the chart, but as usual, sore lack of variety.
Too much 60s and 70s, too many 'safe' choices. However, most of what is on here are massive classics. Further, who gives a crap what is 'heard on the radio'. That doesn't define quality, and regardless, most of this would be heard on classic rock radio.
80% of the chart coming from the 60s and 70s come on.
the best albums ever should be judged by what an individual subjectively likes and there should be nothing objective whatsoever involved with that. there is no objectivity in music.
