Yahoo's Top 15 Albums By Women

The Top 15 Albums of All Time (By Women) - The Y! Music Playlist Blog

This made me vomit seeing the sales and awards for such bad examples of female artists. Your thoughts?

1. The Dreaming by Kate Bush (the best album ever in my opinion)
2. Little Earthquakes by Tori Amos
3. Floating In The Night by Julee Cruise
4. Hounds of Love by Kate Bush
5. Aerial by Kate Bush
6. From The Choirgirl Hotel by Tori Amos
7. Under The Pink by Tori Amos
8. The Voice Of Love by Julee Cruise
9. Tidal by Fiona Apple
10. Horses by Patti Smith
11. Kick Inside by Kate Bush
12. Never For Ever by Kate Bush
13. No Angel by Dido
14. Marry Me by St. Vincent
15. American Doll Posse by Tori Amos

Joni Mitchell, Siouxsie Sioux, Bjork, Heart, Annie Lennox, Aimee Mann and others deserve mention as well.

These are the female artists most people should hear not Britney Spears, Madonna, Shania Twain, Mariah Carey and others like them. They perpetuate this negative image of women in music. Good, creative artists have to fight that image. Madonna really is the worst of them.

That list made me want to listen to Rumours again; it's been too long since I gave that album a listen.

That's a pretty craptastic list (I love the Dixie Chicks, but two albums by them over many, many other artists they could have picked?), but then again ... it's Yahoo. 'Nuff said. Like they're a credible source of anything, much less musical taste?

Ughhhhhh arrghhhhhh

IMO lists like this, and all those "Women in Music" special issues only help to cement the idea that women in music are some kind of exotic sideshow to the main event.

There's way too much analysis and math involved to end up with such a crappy list.

Scientific methods should result in greatness.

his methods are so obviously flawed that i didn't even bother reading the (no doubt) tragic outcome of this

I think the problem is when you try to apply scientific methods to art you end up with ridiculous results because science is objective and art is subjective. This whole thing reminds me of the scene in "Dead Poet's Society" where Robin Williams' character is mocking the English textbook that puts forward this theory of how poetry can be judged my using a mathematical ratio.

I was being silly with my comment; I don't expect science to result in greatness with art.
