Rolling Stone magazine ran an section at the end of last year called, “50 Best Albums of the Decade”. Though I did not entirely agree with their choices, my tastes ran much closer to the critics who wrote the article than to the tastes of the public. A small evidence of that: I had seen live 18 of the groups or people represented in that list – and none of the top 40 albums for the week at the end of the magazine.
Where do your tastes lie?

Ooooohhh, I am going to have to track down that list. I love lists like that.
Here’s the link to the top 50 albums. (Actually, it’s the top 100. The magazine just had the top 50.)
