Pink Floyd's Dark Side and The Wall beat out by the Ramones and Genesis not even charting for Selling England and The Lamb? It's hard to take Pitchfork seriously.

It's great they chose too give recognition too funk with the addition of Sly and the familly stone and Funkadelic so high but I think the number one spot isn't really right.

4 Miles Davis, 3 Wire albums, "Meddle" above "Dark Side of the Moon"? I don't know sometimes...
