Top 500 albums

Rolling Stone magazine has come out with their Top 500 Albums of all Time. Topping off the list is Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles from 1967. Of the top ten albums, The Beatles made the cut four times.

We have the print copy of this issue. And, believe it or not, someone actually wrote something about each and every album. Wow! Well, maybe they just lifted the copy from previous articles.

Listening to: There's a Riot Goin' On, by Sly and the Family Stone. Which came in at number 99 on the list, by the way. This is not your father's funk. Oh, wait! It probably is your father's funk. And your mother's.

I saw this issue on the newsstand (in a friggin' Blockbuster Video store), and I have been regretting my decision to leave it on the rack. Perhaps I'll pick it up. Does the list seem fairly worthy? Lists for music like this are very difficult to get right, without leaving things out that deserve to be there just as much.

A good chunk of the list mimics (imperfectly) the list they did in 1987 of the "Top 100 albums of the last 20 years". I wish I still had that issue... I like to think that was back when RS was "readable." Time makes everything shine a little brighter. :)
