This list is just like any readers’ list. It is clear that, even if most magazine readers get over purely pop fads, they still ignore much of what goes on outside of commercial and public radio.
Even so, there are a lot of awful pop fads here, like Travis, the Verve, Coldplay and Blur who could easily have been replaced by much more listenable and original bands from either the 1990s themselves or to expand beyond the staple ‘Kind of Blue’ in the jazz field.
Not a *terrible* list, just terribly uneven. Which is usually what happens when you let the general public vote on something like this; not saying this is a bad thing or a good thing. It just is.
This chart is the result of voting so there will be some 'awkwardness'. I agree a properly balanced chart is unlikely to have the top two places by the same artist, (like my chart). My chart is not balanced in any way. A chart voted for by the general public cannot be spread evenly across artist/decades etc.
Don't see the point in regurgitating someone else's chart so despite a lot of good entries, has to be scored very low I'm afraid.
Very narrow minded, you just can't be taken seriously if you put 2 albums by the same artist as top 2 albums ever. Also some terrible choices imo
Great list! Nothing solely for popularity! *cough, cough Billboard *cough
People say Q is a less stereotyped magazine than the other big rock journals, but this list does not show it at all.
The same defects of focus on UK bands and neglect of such post-punk trends as hardcore, industrial, thrash metal, rap, dream pop, post-rock are as evident as in any other major-magazine list.
More than that, there are no true surprises among the pre-punk selections, and little jazz apart from the "big five" (and of those only Davis).
I never really listen to much full albums by Oasis so i can't understand if it was a good decision to put them up that high. I understand Radiohead to the extent of Ok Computer and Kid A..The Bends i suppose as well but Top 15-20 ish...I like the Beatles, but i myself enjoy to listen to Radiohead..The Beatles though are a goddamn brilliant band.
I see everyone arguing about Radiohead and i'm like "Their Top 8 Albums should just be Radiohead's whole discography"
