Re: NEW Rolling Stone Top 500 Albums of All Time

On the 500: After 6+ years, I finally finished listening to this whole list from the bottom to top so I have some thoughts! First off, most of the criticisms I’ve heard about the list are valid, there’s for sure too many compilations, too much dad rock, not nearly enough modern records, and a severe...

Re: Albums that were really great in your opinion but didn't make it in AM?

I know Run the Jewels 3 had a Christmas release date so it was doomed to be forgotten in lists but it definitely deserves a spot on AM! RTJ3 certainly does deserve a spot on AM. In fact, it has one.

The fact that Mount Eerie’s discography didn’t make it until A Crow Looked at Me was always pretty surprising to me, plus I know Run the Jewels 3 had a Christmas release date so it was doomed to be forgotten in lists but it definitely deserves a spot on AM!
