In what universe should Nevermind be 26 places ahead of Dark Side of the Moon? Good grief.

And Nevermind places before the Joshua Tree!!! Yeah, I know mainly musicians voted for this, but sheesh, am I the only one in the world who thinks that Nirvana is getting a bit overrated these days? *prepares for the flames*

Thank god London Calling made the Top 10 or I would have immediately burned my issue...

could it BE any longer of a list?

call me crazy...but that list is just way too fookin long for my taste.

i dunno...but when it gets that long....somehow the meaning gets lost (if there was any to begin with)...
and personally, the order leaves alot to be desired.
i have way too many beefs about this fookin list, so i'll stop while i'm ahead.
enough of these freakin "top 100 this" "top 500 that" lists

I second that. I can't think of one Michael Jackson song I like, post-Jackson Five.

I think its an honor for any album to simply make the list considering how many albums there are. Albums from the 1930s all the way up to last year made the list. To be in the top 500 out of millions of albums that have been made over the past century is an honor.

Certainly, I have a lot of disagreements with the list as I do with all list. Not a single one of Sting's solo albums made the top 500, but 4 out of the 5 POLICE albums did make the list, giving the POLICE the best average total of their albums making the list of any artist on the list along with the SMITHS.

I noticed that only 12 albums released after January 1980 made the top 100. Only 14 albums released after January 2000 made the TOP 500. The decade with the most albums on the list was the 1970s.
