That's just stupid. What kind of dumbass puts 'best of' compilations of previously released material on a greatest album list?

That may be the worst list I've ever seen.

It's Time magazine what do you expect :)

So just vote for 'Darkside of the Moon' in the poll.

Agreed. There are some great compelations out there, but the central theme of an album can make it great, not just a collection of songs.

Looking closely at their top 100 albums.

Compilations are the minority.

You had to think, before even looking at a single entry, that the list was going to be terrible. Obviously, TIME only takes into account the largest of the mainstream when compiling this list, invalidating their efforts from the start. But even in the most mainstream of mainstream they missed so many truly great albums.
I am surprised they got "Paid in Full" onto the list. Good work, there. The rest is predictable, and usually off-the-mark.

Eric B & Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy and The Bestie Boys are all very legit entries...but how the hell can you give a man who died in the late 70s [Elvis] a best album in the '90s and '00s?

It's pretty good, 8/10 on my scale. Nowhere near top 100 ever :rolleyes:
Hell Hammer, not to be confused with the drummer of the same name from teh band Mayhem, was a big influence on what would become both black and death metal. "Apocalyptic Raids" wasn't even a true album; it was an EP. This is another "influence" choice.

The list isn't set up #1, #2, #3, etc. It's set up by decades. So it isn't saying Kanye's album is #2 of all time. It seems all of thier choices are weighted equally.

The synposes that follow still go in the order of the cover page. It's still in chronologial order, rather than a "this-album-is-better-than-the-next" order.

Just as I suspected - after the 1980's they quit making music.

Now please don't flame me too bad. There are some good bands in the latter period but look at the choices in the 80's and before compared to what you have to choose from afterwards. There were giants in those days.

You widen my window to 1980...

I always say not much good was made after 1975.

Some of the best music ever recorded in human history has been made later than 1980.

That list is complete crap. Anything by Pink Floyd should be listened to in schools to teach children what real music sounds like.
