New list, same deal. Exclusions stick out like a sore thumb...

As a matter of fact, it's almost like an inside joke now...

Click Here (time.com)

So here's how we chose the albums for the All-TIME 100. We researched and listened and agonized until we had a list of the greatest and most influential records ever - and then everyone complained because there was no Pink Floyd on it.

And that's exactly how it should be. We hope you'll treat the All-TIME 100 as a great musical parlor game. Read and listen to the arguments for the selections, then tell us what we missed or got wrong. Or even possibly what we got right.


And nice of them to provide a poll! har har

Which of these albums should have made the All-Time 100?

Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon
The Band, Music From Big Pink
Jay-Z, Reasonable Doubt
The Doors, The Doors
Superfly, Curtis Mayfield
This Year's Model, Elvis Costello
Dusty in Memphis, Dusty Springfield
Appetite for Destruction, Guns N' Roses

Decent write ups on the 100 list. Audio features are available as well. The writers sure don't think much of the modern music scene (2000s). The "greatest hits" compilations equaling "greatest albums" seems a bit odd, but it's ELVIS, so I'm not arguing, much

Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high

Say what you want about the sicko freak, but Michael Jackson's THRILLER is hands down, one of the top 15 best albums ever produced; and with this list missing it, I call "Shenanigains!

EDIT: I also agree with the hits comps being counted as cheating. It's like saying that the original albums were for shit, but if you get to pick and choose songs from those albums and make a new album, that's ok.

...also, there's no way in fucking hell that REM's DOCUMENT is better then MURMER... that's crazy talk.

...and what's all the love for Pink Floyd? Sure they had some great songs, but listening to thier albums straight through is a jumbled mess. Even DARK SIDE.

EDIT 2!: Well, I'm just blind, I guess, because THRILLER was there and I missed it. ...strange.

Say what you want about the list, but it isn't missing that album. Discussing these things is just enabling their bad behavior though. (Blood on the Tracks?)

I am not going to call shenanigans, I am going to call straight up BULLSHIT.

Tribe Called Quest, DJ Shadow and Pavement all made a better record than Dark Side of the Moon? Or Animals? Or The Wall?

I'd believe Tribe Called Quest did. So would the rest of us who don't live in a planetarium, Stagger

Low End Theory was friggin great though, in all seriousness.

If Appetite for Destruction only makes the maybe list, its wrong. The fact there is no Smashing Pumpkins makes it wrong. Using compilations 40 years after original release makes it wrong. Usinge people I've never heard makes it wrong.

They were voted on by a bunch of industry types and musicians - which explains why the bottom half of the list is really weird. It also seems to explain why it's the best list of this type I've seen. I don't have a lot of objections to it either.
