Rolling Stone Top 500 Albums

Rolling Stone magazine has just made a list of their top 500 albums.

http://www.rollingstone.com/features...n.asp?pid=2164

Interesting to read through it though - some albums are much further down the list than I would have placed them - then again, what do I know

Like my photography? Buy some here....

My initial thoughts - 'Utter Bollox'!!!!

There are far too many 60's albums in the mix. Pants.

It's a 'slippers and cardigan' list. Written by a balding man who knows nothing.

EVIL! NO BON JOVI thats a bit of a crap list. stupid rolling stone. don't know anything i think the forum should make a music magazine and then be better than the rolling stone... yeh... fun

another thing is, should best of collections be allowed on that kinda thing? i don't think they should, its sooooo cheating.

Actually, I don't even know why I click that kind of links anymore. All these so-called 'best/worst' lists are so subjective it's not even worth it.
However, the spite to the 80's and 90s is so obvious it's disgusting. These damn rock critics are stuck on the Beatles and Rolling Stones. Sad really

no tool (to me) == reviewer with no good tast in rock music.
Then again, I do not like the 80's at all, and was not even contious about music then (I was like 4). And seeing I was not alive in the 60's-70's, I do not know the more obsucre bands. Then again, I am listening to lesser known bands at the moment, and ignoring the filth that is the majority of the mainstream media.
Oh well.

It's an unwritten law.

'Nobody will ever surpass The Beatles'
'No decade will ever suprass the 60's'

Well, BOLLOX and BOLLOX.

If I said Curve, My Bloody Valentine or The Cure were better than the Beatles, 99.9% of people would laugh. The unwritten law at work.....
