Only a very few albums are where they should be on this list. But at least the albums are decent. Not so sure about Kanye west being so high up though.

Some great indie rock especially The Cure & Depeche Mode. Nice seeing them both get some love

I like this one a lot - one of the best overall charts from a top publication. Took a risk with ranking some recent albums high, but I appreciate that instead of only including albums prior to 1990.

I'm not that impressed. I don't get why they pu Lady Soul at 7 while they didn't even add I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You. I also don't get why Adele is put at 17.

Just look at the top ten to see how much of a joke this is. Got to be just one person compiling this. Think they forgot the remit of the task. Prince and kanye in top ten really? Please.

It seems like they went out of their way to include every iconic rapper, without doing the same for other genres. I do, however, appreciate the female representation, which is a lot greater than it is here on this site.

While it is diverse I would say this chart is far too generous to Mange West Adele and The Rolling Stones.
