    Nine years out of date, but I can’t think of much decent since then.

    Truly shocking selection in the top ten. Lost all interest in reading backwards after that.

    What was the top 10? I'm guessing the number 1 slot is taken by Bob Dylan?

    Sgt Pepper was number one, with Pet Sounds number two. The rest of the top ten was mostly Beatles/Dylan, with the Clash included to show that Rolling Stone was still down wid da yoof.

    Agree with many of the comments above but these big lists can still bring to light albums you've missed or ignored which might well be worth a listen. I have a copy of Al Green's Let's Stay Together but never got around to hearing I'm Still In Love With You.

    I don't have a problem with The Beatles being number 1, you could argue over the album choice. Don't think the Clash should be anywhere near but that is just personal taste. Randy Newman never seems to fair as well as other solo notables which I find baffling as I find him far more interesting & talented than Dylan.

    Excellent point. The lower reaches of such lists are always more interesting.

    Not in this case!

    You know what, whilst there's a lack of metal and electronica albums in there, I thought it was a nicely balanced list.

    EDIT **POST DELETED**

    I take it back. I'd read the top 100 wrong way round (No. 100 is listed as 1/100).

    Still...... A Grand Don't Come For Free should not be anywhere near Sgt. Pepper in any list.

    Couldn't agree more and I actually don't dislike The Streets

    Also, the Rolling Stone website is absolutely terrible, takes forever to load!

    Apart from it being from 2012, highest Radiohead entry at 67 = GTFO.

    I don't really understand these lists. They're always 90% rock music with a couple of obvious jazz choices (Kind Of Blue and Love Supreme) plus Bob Marley and Public Enemy.

    And I reckon Thriller might be dropping a few places
