  • Unless you can point to a better album from other parts of the world, be quiet about inclusion. Without that it's just pandering and isn't merit based.

  • i kno i'm the weirdo here, but honestly i'd pick Graduation > 808's anyday. being "dated" doesn't make it "bad"...and being "influential" doesn't make it "good". for instance: bands like The Stooges and The Ramones have some of the most dated music in rock n roll, and it all sucks. but we love those records anyway, and they're still massively influential. because being dated, and being good doesn't matter. Graduation is underrated af. it's the progression from Late Registration, and i think a damn fine way to put a cap on the traditionalism and academia side of hip hop before ye transitioned into his own experimentation. it's his version of a senior thesis. 808's is the first gallery show out of skool where shit is hitting walls 5min before opening. it's sloppy and rough, and stressful but it got done and people loved it, and a few pieces sold, and it was enough to reinforce that this career can keep going forward. none of it is BAD, just momentary. kinda pales in comparison, and is a "meh" middle grey on timeline between mastubartory shitshow and magnum opus.

  • They could say 500 best popular albums in America but since it's rolling stone, it's essentially implied. The inclusion of compilations while honoring albums is beyond idiotic in my book. No one will ever be pleased with anyone's list; we all have our favorites. Don't know why they bothered with this list but maybe they sold a couple more copies of RS lol

  • I think it's a little difficult with compilations. If the comp in question was kind an event in and of itself when it dropped (my memory of the time is that Madonna's "Immaculate Collection" definitely falls into this category), then I don't mind it being on a list like this. If it's just some completely generic, anonymous "best of" crap that the average individual can't remember ever having existed, then that's stupid and it should be left off. But I mean, yeah, just looking at the numbers online, this Madonna comp sold like 30 million copies worldwide, and is her top selling release. One could well make the case that it's her most iconic release.

  • these lists became boring years ago and make my eyes roll. my gripe is that these lists exist and can't even be bothered reading it. Who cares where the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Floyd etc are placed on them? There don't need any more plaudits. Also increasingly irrelevant, i'd argue as the increasing and sheer weight of music it's difficult to compile them in a meaningful order not helped by comparing an album 30/40/50 years older than a more recent one that hasn't had the chance to grow into become revered as these things can take time.

  • Lol this is what happens when you try to pander to a new generation. Nothing wrong with new music, but it needs years to settle into classic status. Most will not be remembered. It's staying power that should be the deciding factor on a 500 greatest album list of all time, so all records from the past 10-15 years are excluded by default. Maybe they will make it later, but give it time to see.

  • It seems like the editors of the list just picked an artist at random and chose the first album that came to mind. It doesn’t bother me at all that the list is mostly western music. Rolling Stone is a historically rock publication so it’s cool. I just think people get hung up on the name of the list when it really doesn’t matter. If XXL did a list of the “Greatest Albums of All Time” and put all rap, I don’t think anyone would care. Rolling Stone just gave into the pressure it got when it released the 2003 list.

  • I get your point about Fiona, but compared to "Red" by Taylor Swift in #99, Extraordinary Machine should not be the one to be pointed out. I mean, Taylor sold over 7 milion with this record and does anybody (not a fan and not a country listener) remember a song from it? does anybody listen to it? does any artist really (and I mean REALLY) go to this record to be inspired? lol that's when I understanding why "folklore" is the most overrated album of the year. ugh.
