Little heavy on the British side but that's to be expected from NME. Otherwise a really cool and diverse list

Pretty good representative chart. Parochialism well tempered unlike some of the RS and Pitchfork charts.

Interesting to see how NME was audacious in this list, given it's from 2003 and has 13 '2000s albums on it.

I think they where a bit biased towards Britisch music especially with picking the Stone Roses as number one. It's a great album but when you're making an objective list I don't think it can be rated as the best album ever made. I do like this chart a lot.

This list is at least different. I mean: doolittle, marquee moon and forever changes so high? RS doesn't even list two of these.
