Not that bad – there is a good diversity of selections (though metal is conspicuously absent). It’s notable to see some reggae, a lot of very good soul and a good selection of most pop and rock genres.
There is though the problem of datedness of numerous selections which have proven to constitute much more popular fads than timeless classics that either had long-term impacts on the music industry or stand out as something totally unique that nobody could emulate. Examples are artists like the Verve, Oasis, Garbage and even Alanis Morrisette. If the ‘Guardian’ could have been more careful about then-recent records this could have been a good list for its type.
Very interesting list...different order.
Can't argue with too much. Predictable selections but interesting order
Pretty good. Predictable for a reason. If they did one now a few from the 90s would bite the dust like garbage, urban hymns and jagged little pill I would guess. Not a predictable no1 but a good one.
Well, this chart add´s The Stone Roses in a top 10
Interesting to see "What's Going On?" at the top of the list!
Good list, really diverse
OK list. Why is Public Enemy so high?
Some great albums but the drawback to all of these types of charts is that they are far too predictable & I guess that's inevitable with the exception of the NME which tends to go completely the other way & do best of charts where every albums is onscure.
OK, but dated.
