    I don´t like the ranking that much, but even I have to admit that it has a couple of surprises.

    More of a generic list than they're 2003 list, but still alright.

    Different Class and Let England Shake being as high as they are a classic case of "Good, but not THAT good", plus the NME's love affair with the Arctic Monkeys was always slightly over-the-top.

    Pretty much the hipster chart. Not bad, but definitely not an objective chart

    "Different Class" is 500 ranks too high in this list. And the rest also needs a better order.

    I feel like NME decided to draw album names out of a hat for their order of these albums. They are all great albums, but the listing is all over the place.

    From mianfei
    Having become experienced with “best albums” lists ever since I read Joe S. Harrington’s Top 100 Albums on Blastitude between 2001 and 2003, I can only take this list – no doubt an attempted riposte to ‘Rolling Stone’’s list published in 2003 and updated in 2012 – with a grain of salt.\r\n\r\nWhat Harrington and David Keenan have long proved to me is the danger of compiling lists from people whose knowledge of musical history is based on charts or mainstream newspapers. Especially after the restriction of commercial radio playlists during the Carter Era, the mainstream press has not been aware of cutting-edge musical trends, and living in outer suburban Melbourne I was no more exposed thereto than a strictly cloistered religious would be. Despite Harrington and Keenan having genuine gaps in their knowledge, they demonstrated to me that the music I was exposed to as a child was derivative and of only short-term value.\r\n\r\nThere is no doubt that there are far too many omissions from this list – on amazon.com I put a guide to discuss the issue.
