On September 22, Rolling Stone posted an article where they laid out the list of what they believe are considered the 500 greatest albums of all time. The decisions were not taken lightly; a long list of writers contributed to the article, an electorate that was given the opportunity to vote on the albums that make the list, numerous people working within the industry given the chance to create a “Top 50 Albums” list of their own, and a few other avenues granting the power of the vote. As I scroll through the list, I’m flooded with the nostalgia of days gone by and it makes me even more excited to see what happens in music in the future.
Artists like Otis Redding, David Bowie, James Brown, Usher, and Marvin Gaye grace the list with albums that most of us would easily be able to sing along to. One thing that I’ve always respected about Rolling Stone, however, is that they tend not to be too biased. There is usually something made available for everyone to enjoy, so the list doesn’t stop there.
I find myself wondering what I would choose as my Top 50, but don’t worry, I won’t bore you with that in this article. Rather, I’ll leave it to the writers and voters at Rolling Stone who curated the list all on their own for each of us to enjoy. Below, you can check out a few of the lucky albums to have made the cut.
Do you agree with the list? Why or why not? Who would you have added? Let us know!
