I will never forget the unbelievable stench on that train you and I caught back in February 2017. Holy hell, I've been in bad pub toilets before but that was like a thousand guys unleashed at once.

IMO your entire country should be shut entirely.

Listening back to Random Access Memories, what a fucking mess. There's about six or so songs that are fucking stellar - Get Lucky, Contact, Lose Yourself to Dance, Giorgio by Moroder, Doin it Right, and the rest are fucking atrocious.

So I have The Gouster, which is on the 74-76 massive boxset, and it occurred to me that I actually have never listened to Young Americans. It's a bit of a slog tbh, and I think I'd very nearly take The Gouster over it, were it not for Win and Fascination and Fame.

Plus Deftones, a new Black Thought EP, Anna von Hausswolff, Bob Mould, Thurston Moore and Idles. Absolutely crazy week.

I never ended up listening to Marauder, but El Pintor is hugely underrated.

I wonder how many extended song titles with dashes and commas and hyphens and semicolons it will have.

Rolling Stone updated their 500 greatest albums of all-time. Of course the order is going to be wonky but I enjoyed reading through it.

My biggest personal takeaway is that I need to listen to more Aretha Franklin. Ashamed to say I only know a handful of songs and have never actually heard a full album of hers.

Glad I started with the last section (69-1), which is such a dumpster fire I don’t need to bother reading the rest of it. Not a single U2 album, but two each from from Jay-Z, OutKast, James Brown, Bowie, and Radiohead? Alanis Morissette?

Fuck that noise.

Sgt. Pepper’s plummeting to #24 is laughable.

I closed the tab when Harry Styles' 9 month old album nobody will remember in a few years was ranked above Funeral and The Ronettes' debut.

I have been enjoying the reactions to the list from other people though. Funny stuff!

How is a best of compilation (Legend) even eligible for a best albums list?

Also, I do find Jagged Little Pill underrated these days, but not a top-100 album of all time underrated.

Someone pasted the whole list somewhere else, and U2’s first appearance is at fucking #124 with Achtung??

I’m mystified that Rolling Stone overpraised the last two (or three) albums but then gave them the shaft here. It’s legitimately offensive that the biggest band of the last 40 years is relegated that low.

No, Joshua Tree shows up at #135 and then Achtung at #124. That's all they have for THE 2.

Aquemini in the top 50, TPAB and MBDTF in the top 25, a black artist at #1, don't get the complaints
