Thanks for posting this JordyLicks96


Who Voted for the 500 Greatest Albums? More than 300 artists, journalists, and industry figures — everyone from Beyoncé to Taylor Swift to members of U2 — helped determine the all-new list

While the Top 500 list is highly debated/subjective, the list of 300+ voters is littered with Hip-hop/Rap/R&B (modern vs.), that the top 500 list becomes a joke. Conversely, there's very few classic rockers, modern rockers: Rick Wakeman, Adam Clayton, Mick Avory, Eric Burdon, The Edge etc. No integrity there, at least not for me.


No members of: Beatles/Stones/Led Zep/The Who/Yes-1 member/JH Experience/The Doors/Pink Floyd/Rush/Van Halen/Nirvana/Muse/Bob Marley's Wailers/Clapton etc.


The Kinks represented by Mick Avory.


They should split these into to genres for accuracy & credibility.

Interesting to see the Beatles have 5 albums in the top 50, and glad to see Revolver has risen above Sgt. Pepper which seemingly used to always be #1 in Rolling Stone mag. polls.
I'd also rank both the White album and Rubber Soul above Sgt. Peppers, and not sure if Abbey Road belongs at #1 (I'd say the White album), but overall the Beatles are well represented.

Rubber Soul (35)
White album (29)
Sgt. Peppers (24)
Revolver (11)
Abbey Road (5)

Top 5...really??

What are the top 5? Past lists have been a bit classic-rock heavy and cliched. I quite liked the NME's list from a few year's back. A more contemporary view.

Edit: OK, iv'e viewed the list. Better, but not sure if I agree!

I think Revolver overtook Sergeant Pepper some time ago. Like you, I'd also rank the White Album and Rubber Soul higher than Sergeant Pepper.

My Beatles top-5 would be :-

Revolver
The White Album
Rubber Soul
Abbey Road
Sergeant Pepper

* Rubber Soul and The White Album could swap positions, easily. I've never loved the latter-period Beatles the same way as so many do. Sometimes I even feel I enjoy the Beatlemania years more!

When there's thousands of albums to consider, I guess something's gotta give! I love Tattoo You, but i'm totally unsurprised bu it's omission.

Nice to see this sequence. I always preferred Rubber Soul and Revolver, as well as Abbey Road well over Sgt. Peppers, which to me was a heavy overstatement of the Beatles capabilities (too much George Martin I would say).
Mind you, I'm a Stones fan. For the rest, polls don't mean much to me. They're based on ever changing opinions (just like mine grinning smiley)

Yes, but I would rate TATTOO YOU higher than SOME GIRLS, AFTERMATH and STICKY FINGERS.

If I would rate the top 7, it would be from best to slightly less great:
1) EXILE
2) LET IT BLEED
3) BEGGAR'S BANQUET
4) TATTOO YOU
5) STICKY FINGERS
6) AFTERMATH
7) SOME GIRLS

I'd rather listen to Past Masters Volume 1. than Sergeant Pepper. The album makes my top-5 based more on recognition and importance, than listening enjoyment. I'd rather listen to Help! and A Hard Day's Night; especially the latter. The joyousness of the '64 Beatles eclipses much of what came a few years later.

It does on my list, too, sometimes. It's certainly their finest pre-Rubber Soul album.

The White Album has maybe 4 great songs, the rest are split between ok songs and outright crap (e.g. Honey Pie)

Well, the best - and who knows, probably the only good - thing in that list is that the over-blown hype over SGT PEPPER starts to be over. Not to belittle its significance at the time - the idea of a concept album and all that shit - but there is not other album in the history of recorded music that is soooo over-rated by all accounts. If we are just looking at musical quality, and forget all the bullshit, there are better Beatles albums. Keith's comparison of Mick's solo albums to MEIN KAMPF is much more accurate in regard to SGT PEPPER (although I need to confess to me it was news that 'everyone' owns a copy. Of the people I know only one political historian owns a copy of MEIN KAMPF... and shit, not that many people I know own a Jagger solo album either...) I guess now at the streaming age the amount of people having nerves to listen SGT. PEPPER from the beginning to the end starts to be a rather small number. And in regard to this 'album of all albums' for a good reason.smoking smiley

Just a few thoughts.

To see Britney Spears in this list, is like having Tavernello (cheap Italian wine) in a 5 star restuarant wine list ...

Almost entirely made up of USA/UK produced music. Not one single record from Brazil, Italy, France ... I mean 3 or 4 Janet JAckson and no Gil, Veloso, Elis Regina, Mina, Battisti, Dalla, Gainsbourg, Django Reinhardt (just to name a few)?

Surprised not to see Sting in the list (unless I missed him)

Only 5 (more or less) jazz albums?

Blues? The usual 3/4 and that's it

I hated these things back before the internet. Not having TATTOO YOU included is pathetic. Not sure why magazines etc, especially Rolling Stone, which is completely lost, bother with these kind of things that are completely subjective to begin with.

There's a very good chance it's somewhere in the top 500 and it certainly should be (as should all of the Beatles albums imo), but I only looked at the top 50.

What nonsense. Marvin Gaye number 1? that album isnt even rock music. There are about 50 albums better than Whats Going On, including Exile, Sticky, Bleed ,and Beggars. Picking Gaye is just political c.

I do look at the top-20 or so and wonder, admittedly. There’s some mighty fine albums there - especially Aretha’s -, but I have to question whether this would’ve been the list I’d compiled last year. I really hate to think this, but...

Despite the wondering I express in my above post, I do kinda like the diversity at the same time. RollingStone has been criticised for being too ‘classic rock’ in the past, no? I recollect they gave A Bigger Bang 5 stars!

I'm so old, I remember when Rolling Stone was cool, informative, and interesting.

Random Notes and their reviews were mandatory reading in the 70's.

My, how the mighty have fallen!

Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure the even Emotional Rescue is better than most of these.

It has been a long time since I listened to the only very few albums that I have got from Marvin Gaye. However, to me even his own album, MPG, is much to prefer to WHAT'S GOING ON. That was a highly strange choice.

I like the fact Meet The Beatles! made the list. It may be judged differently by non-Americans - in fact, Americans under a certain age, too -, but there is absolutely no denying it’s significance.
