I'm just curious as to why THREE Eminem CDs made the list. I don't have a problem with Eminem... but surely in the history of music there were better CDs? I'd like to think so.

400. Illmatic - Nas

I don't think Nas deserves a spot on the list. Period.

Second of all, surely the Foo Fighters " The Colour And The Shape" should have made the list. I didn't see it on there but I wasn't looking very very closely.

And cheers for having Coldplay! I anticipate their follow up even though I very seriously doubt they'll be able to make another album like this one.

The selections are good, but the placements are way off.

Why is Pet Sounds way up at #2? It's a very good album but not that good.

The Rolling Stones "Exile on Main Street" sucked, yet it's at #7. "Sticky Fingers" was way better.

Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" is at #43. That should have been at #2.

Led Zeppelin IV could be at #3 instead of #66 which is an insult.

Van Halen's first album is at #415. That is obscene.

Pink Floyd's first album "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" written mostly by Syd Barrett is a classic album. One of the best ever made. But for some reason they put it way down at number 347. Yikes!

No, the list is crap. There's a entire thread dedicated to this in music if you need to know why
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/03 - 4:28:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
On the most part, no. But I still voted 'Yes'. Because, unlike so many other top album lists, they thought of influential albums. So, in other words, it's not great, but it's better than most.

And I'm a sucker for the Beatles.

18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/03 - 4:50:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why are so many Beatles albums on the list? On why so high for that matter? Some were good but some didn't deserve high rankings....Dark Side of the Moon and Zeppelin IV should have been way higher.

Pretty much, no. I agree about Eminem: why do all the critics kiss his ass? Don't get it.

And No Doubt's Rock Steady? That's got to be a joke, right?

I was a little pissed at it.

Death to the kkk!

gee i bet putting 500 random cd's in order was hard
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 12/4/03 - 1:44:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
Im not sure, cuz I really dont care to spend all that time going through 500 albums
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/03 - 11:00:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, a lot of the more recent ones shouldn't be on there.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 12/16/03 - 3:49:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pfft. I only looked at the first 100, and wasnt impressed.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 12/27/03 - 10:01:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, because bob dylan was listed three times in the first 16 albums.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 1/26/04 - 11:39:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
How many people actually selected the albums, or maybe the job was downloaded to the mail room. Who knows. If this list was created by people voting online, then maybe it would reflect the peoples feelings more. Also if the idea was influential albums then they might be different. I saw a poll that put Louis Armstrong wonderful world as the song of the century.

My favourite album of all time EVER is only number 360
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/04 - 6:47:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
There's no iron maiden. NONE, not 1 album on the entire list. And Metallica's first appearance was 167. 167! This sucks.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/04 - 6:56:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
There is no opinion on music less credible then that shame of a magazine.
The list is crap.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 3/12/04 - 12:21:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
I was surprised at the Beatles albums on the list. They listed so many, however Magical Mystery Tour wasn't on there. In my opinion Magical Mystery Tour is the best Beatles album. (except maybe the White Album) I certainly would have put it on the list.

The Avril Lavigne cover of her in a little skirt is not even up!
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 5/31/04 - 3:37:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
*Rolls eyes* That list sucks....
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 6/10/04 - 10:15:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
The Beatles were they should be. :)
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 7/2/04 - 1:33:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
I gotta agree with drogil^^^, I also think Axis-Bold as Love by Hendrix should have been wayyy higher than it was.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 9/3/04 - 7:41:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
of course no one's ever gonna agree with the list. music seems more divided and fought over than politics AND religion
