Decent enough although, as you'd expect from NME, rather odd choices here and there incl. No. 1

Love the variety on this list! A little Britain-heavy, but not that much of a problem seeing as the music is good.

Nice list - good mix of taste. Obvious British bias with Stone Roses upfront, and extensive Smith and and Rolling Stones. But not a bad thing.

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.
