A lot of the right albums here, but all in the wrong order. And far, far too much Beatles in the upper end.

This list has the worst aspects of popular lists by people who don't know.

Even if strong public radio networks allow the people of Britain to know more "cutting-edge" music than those of cloistered suburbs in Australia and Red America, this tendency has lessened since hardcore and thrash metal emerged.

Consequently, the people who voted on this are not likely to have known most of the major musical trends of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s as this was being written. They may also nto be aware of what was going on in the 1960s, despite Piero Scaruffi and David Keenan having written their essential works prior to this list's issuing.

Wow I just find this list really funny. The top 20 has 17 British artists and two freaking American artists. Like come on I'm sure there's more than two American albums in the top 20.

Wow 30 albums and 25 artists in common! Great list, order will always change between people. Someone wrote British sure do love their own? Well yeah why shouldn't we? But there's still 30 albums from the USA. Even when the States talk about music they mention all the old British bands, over their own.
