Amazing how that list cuts off around the mid-2000s, which implies that none of Kanye's work is on this level (or even 'Kast's 'Stankonia'). It's entirely possible for Kendrick's album to be on that level. Saying it's one of the greatest of all time doesn't mean it's better than those albums you list, it means it's in the same company. Also 'All Eyez on Me' is not an all-time. Way too much filler on that thing. All of that said, this lineup is solid.

I might just be projecting because of how limited, or non-existent, my own experience with the Jacka is, but I feel like he was a dude that was under-appreciated by almost everyone. Sad to see the headline, but happy to see the videos because his music does deserve to be heard.

Not to do his defense for him, but a great example is not including 'Someday My Prince Will Come' which is a Columbia studio album of Davis' from 1961. Under those parameters it should absolutely be on the list, but somehow it isn't. I don't know if this was an oversight from the writer or not, but simple correctable errors like that really distract from the overall quality of the list.

Can someone explain to me why 'Someday My Prince Will Come' isn't on this list?

Untouchable album from start to finish, don't know if I've ever recovered after hearing "Things Done Changed" for the first time. Only "criticism" I have is I don't know if the battle between Biggie and Meth on "The What" is as lopsided as Tom seems to think. Meth's rasp and the way he's inhaling when he raps just sounds incredible on that one.

From the body of the text I don't see anything even remotely close to "harassment" and that headline is remarkably sensationalist in approach.

Are you counting 'This Is Your Bloody Valentine' and 'Ecstasy'?

Solid list up and down, though “Fluorescent Adolescent” will always be number 1.

Rock and pop are both incredibly nebulous terms. It's how artists like Sam Cooke are able to get in.

Had I not seen or read the similarly silly CoS article, I probably would've guessed Bill Haley or Ike Turner or someone since it says "father."

Why is the same conflation happening here that happened on CoS earlier when they wrote about this? They didn't directly remove those ashes to make room for any outfit from Beyonce. Also it's the only piece of Freed material that seems to be leaving the Hall, so it's not like they're erasing the memory of him.

*Further proof that Nicki Minaj excels at rapping.

I've been devouring everything that PC Music has had to offer lately, so I'm glad I get to feed my ravenous hunger some more.

They have a right to be angry, but saying what they would do in a situation that has absolutely nothing to do with them is asinine.

Love reading all the Internet boldness of people saying "I'd sue them" about a person who very clearly has tremendous problems in their own personal life.

This is a tremendously sad story for so many reasons now.

I'm on my third listen through of this tape and even though it's "vault clearing" it really doesn't feel that way at all, everything blurs together incredibly well.

Like you Tom I've got my fingers tightly crossed that they can issue a whole album of this. 'Beautiful Pimp 2' is still one of my favorite tapes from the year, but Fortune over an album's worth of this kind of stuff would blow that out of the water.
