Missing Nine Inch nails and Tool — 3 years ago

Although I don’t agree with all the choices, this “must have albums” list is pretty good.

I agree with Metallica, just not the Black Album. I’d go with “Ride the Lightning” instead.

Also, “Pretty Hate Machine” by Nine Inch nails is a must have album and should be in this list

And Tool’s “Lateralus” should be number 1 imo.


Urban Hymns by the Verve — 5 years ago

I’m very happy to see that album on this list. Anyone who doesn’t own it needs to buy it RIGHTNOW!


Untitled — 6 years ago

Actually Exile on main street was on there too


WHAT ? — 6 years ago

WHATTHEFUCK IS THIS ? AREYOUPEOPLE ON DRUGS ? WHO IN THENAME OF MUSICCREATEDTHISLIST ?

First – Thriller in number 73 ? That is just a shitty lie ! That was one of the greatest albums of all time ! And it was the best selling too !

Second – Only one Rolling Stones album and it was on number 64 ? What a freaking disgrace.

Third – WHAT ?? NEVERMIND IN THETOPTEN ? THEPERSONTHATMADETHISLISTSHOULDLISTEN TO A VASTCOLLECTION OF – Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. DO THAT OR KILLYOURSELF.


Typical Q list — 7 years ago

Very predictable content. Have added it to my lists because it was satisfying to tick so many off…


Dint like this list — 8 years ago

they missed off some classic albums on here and was full of albums that were all rock what about some of the classic R’N’B albums. WASNTIMPRESSED


This list is bollocks — 8 years ago

I can list dozens of reasons why this list is a joke at best (a felony at worst), but I will summarize by stating that its author is obviously a pathetic little pot-head who never got over the first half of the nineties, and must have inherited Q magazine from his UK-centric family. I’m sure the music critics at Q have been exposed to hundreds, if not thousands of pop records, certainly reams more than I have. So why couldn’t they create a list of “best” records deserving of the title?
