I've lived in N.America for 8 years now and still haven't found the answer - Why are Coldplay considered "alternative" ?

Why, what does geography have to do with it ? Unlike North America, people in the UK have been able to move on since 1965, radio stations are not defined by genre or still playing ancient relics about wizards and elves, or anything older than three months, and men in pony tails have not brainwashed everybody into thinking no decent music hard been released since 1974. Only the over 60's are still totally in awe of the Beatles. As time goes on, more music is made (good and bad) so all these 60's/70's "classics" that once had hardly any competition are now judged against a lot more music. Stuff that was once new, fresh and different is now limp easy listening. Sgt Pepper had a gatefold sleeve with printed lyrics and sounded like nothing else in 1967, now it's just bland, not even the best Beatles album by a long way. Dark Side of the Moon has not fared well just because lots of people don't remember getting stoned to it. NME may have it's faults and is a completely different entity to what it was 1976-90 (had it remained it wold have gone the way of Sounds and Melody Maker) but I doubt that it "excluded" all these old albums that most people here seem to think must always be the top choices, just to be hip. There are a lot of old albums on the list (which nobody will ever agree on either content or order), and surely newer albums have just as much right to be there. 82 writers making 50 picks means there was scope for 4100 albums to be chosen.

This wasn't compiled by name editor etc, 82 writers picked 50 albums with a #1 getting 50 points down to 1 for #50 so an album that was in a lot of top 20's is going to finish ahead of on with a few top picks. If it wa pick 1 album the winner would probably get 12 points and therewould be 485 albums in equal 4th.

So Neil Young' s list couldn't include soundtracks like Deadman even though it was 100% Neil Young and new material, but Coldplay can have a non-existant album created from 3 eps, and include an ep of remixes ? What do I know, I'd have X&Y at #1 :)

Peace, Love and Understanding was never on the original "Armed Forces", only later re-issues. It was a Nick Lowe B-Side (American Squirm) credited to Nick Lowe and his Sound.

Clueless - Skrillex best electronic of the year - really. Did they just google "new fangled electronically dancing". And as for Guetta. Take outtake/leftover from pop trance circa 1999, tack onto latest pop hit add trend of the day (several months ago) i.e. dub step, press button, will this do, collect money from large american multi corporation, if unavailable contact Mr. C. Harris.
