In defence of this list-it opts for commercially successful albums so will likely appeal to people who find critics lists a bit snobbish. I wouldn't want to put Shania or the Dixie Chicks on my own list though!
What the fuck is Creed doing anywhere near this list
This is actually a list of the top selling of all time, not the best.
If most magazine lists are bad, this one seems to cater to the musically illiterate living in cloistered suburbs as I did during my childhood.
It was finding bands like Matchbox Twenty, Coldplay, Nirvana, Silverchair and the White Stripes so, so unlistenable that made me want to look to music that people in cloistered outer suburban Melbourne have no chance to hear. When one gets some reasonable sources of advice – though I am no believer in slavishly following influential critics – one can basically discredit this sort of list.
Finally a chart where Dark Side of the Moon is where it belongs, in the top 10.
"How to use music to make a ton of money".
Still, not a BAD chart per se.
I'm not personally a radiohead fan, so I thought the chart was ok.
Top 100 and no Radiohead and shite ordering with Thriller in 3rd and Shania Twain! How embarressing. Sure it was great at the time, but in 2007 it should be lower. There are a lot of great albums otherwise but also a lot of essential aren't there...
Thriller 3rd, I don´t think it it´s that good to 3rd place, this chart isn´t good
