That's actually a pretty okay list for Rolling Stone standards.

you rap fans shouldnt be TOO surprised, but realistically, tell me what albums would you like to see on there?

That list is bullshit.  Jay-Z is all marketing, his shit is all plain, he's never done anything groundbreaking in his life.

Atleast Eminem was in the top 10 (should of been top 5 though).  I also thought Stankonia was a good choice, so was Get Rich Or Die Trying and Eminem Show (should of been top 5 though).  Some albums that should of made the list...

Talib Kweli- Train of Thought  (Classic 10 out of 10)
Nas- Stillmatic  (Classic 10 out of 10)
Nas- God's Son   (Classic 10 out of 10)
Dead Prez- Let's Get Free  (Classic 10 out of 10)
8 Mile Soundtrack (Eminem's two greatest songs on there, "Lose Yourself", "8 Mile Rd")
Xzibit- Restless LP  (Solid 9 out of 10)
Snoop- The Last Meal  (Solid 8 out of 10)

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

"Eminem will be bigger than Michael Jackson as long as he doesn't change."

I agree except for Restless and Last Meal. Restless was a huge let down for me as an album, back then, and now and Last Meal was a nice Snoop album and refreshing after a lot of shit that came out by him but I don't think either should represent a best of the decade list. God Son can stay or go. I liked it a lot at first but it hasn't aged well for me, but Made You Look alone might get it in there.

id take lost tapes over gods son and stillmatic anyday

and for the record, i never thought this list was good in any way, but i do like a lot of albums on there, but too much indie shit for my taste, ill take white stripes and black keys discographies over 60% off that list, maybe 70

I'm mainly an indie rock fan, but the indie music that is there is pretty wack.  Much better stuff out there, but it seems like RS has done this to all genres.

I stopped taking Rolling Stone's lists for music in general seriously a long time ago. This list proves no better, only that the list creator must really like Radiohead and Kanye West.

No Snoop Dogg, The Game, Linkin Park or Travis and the list is a joke, IMO.

There's no way a list like this can't be a joke. I could sit in a room for months with 1000 albums and just listen and grade. I could take all the time and care in the world to put a list together. But when it's all over, it'll only be the 100 albums I like best. And there will be plenty of awesome albums not on there that I've either never heard or didn't listen to enough to appreciate. And fans of those albums will call my list a joke. There will also be fans of specific genres that hate or don't get some of the genres I like and call some of the albums I put on there disgraceful. You cannot win with a top 100 list of albums with in a specific genre, so there's no point when you're crossing genres.
 

Action!

not a bad list.  hard to hate on but hard to accept like

  i find it hard to swallow to see jay albums up there but no Nas who I think is the superior artist

it's clearly a commercial list but it says tons that they can connect with many
Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
