No Elbow or Editors. Disappointing.

Ah, I disagree with that one (not so much with the others of your list).
After a quick count I see I have 29 of these records.

BTW, some individual ballots (including those for Song of the Decade) you can see here: The Best Music of the Decade: Inside the Ballots : Photos : Rolling Stone

Pete Wentz was part of the group weighing in? Suddenly things make so much more sense.

Quite frankly, I was surprised by how good it was (for them), and I still think it sucked.

That's RS for you.

whilst i agree entirely with your sentiments that it's got three great singles in Electric Feel, Kids and Time to Pretend and the rest is filler, i think the reason it does so well is because it's an album & genre that has been done my many bands over the past few years, but it's the only one that's really crossed a divide and become insanely popular in the mainstream, leaving similar and better albums languishing underground.

or maybe i have no idea what i'm saying.

THE BOTTOM LlNE IS THAT THIS ROLLING STONE LIST COULD HAVE BEEN A LOT BETTER THAN IT WAS. THE EFFORT WAS NOT THERE, AND IT IS EMBARRASSING FOR THIS MAGAZINE. I'M GONNA HAVE SOME CHEESE DOODLES. QUITE FRANKLY, HE'S A DAMN POINT GUARD!

Objectively speaking, ATYCLB was very significant and deserved a spot, yeah. I was probably too harsh there.

Let's see. I've heard...67 of these records. Can't say too many of them are worth owning.

High five from me to Rolling Stone for putting Is This It in the Top 2 and for rating College Dropout as the best Kanye album. And for showing love to the Arctics, Johnny Cash, P.J. Harvey, Sleater-Kinney, Postal Service and The Libertines. And The Hold Steady, even though they have 3 superior albums to the one that made the list. Strange. I also like the high placement of Marshall Mathers LP. It's an album by an artist who has become a joke and an album that I think a lot of people have forgotten about, but it really is a pretty memorable and well-crafted work.

Some of the bad things: Modern Times and Magic, two albums by two of the best artists ever, are way too high on the list. Probably on there for career achievement. Same with No Line On The Horizon. And, yeah, MGMT sucks.

I think it's a pretty decent list.

I'm dumbfounded that Modern Times was above Love & Theft, to be honest.

Not bad, but the lack of Muse or Elbow is a mistake.
