I agree, but worthy of the 5 spot? I don't think so...

Three times Muse? They're a good band but that's a bit too much honour.

That's a list of mostly good albums, but few are worthy of the top 30 of the past 25 years and many are commonly overrated (Nevermind is good, but #2? and Oasis are boring.) Though not my ultimate pick I can't say OK Computer is a bad choice.

i never agree with lists anyway, unless the lists are written by me, in which case they are correct

It's a reader poll from the equivalent of Rolling Stone, gang. Of course it's going to be awful.

It's pretty much a 2000s list anyways, from what could tell with a few sprinklings from the 90s in there and just a tiny tiny pinch of 80s.
