Re: Snubs, complaints and hate-mail about the top 100 albums list
The list is a fair discussion start point but personally I can't see 4 Metallica albums making it. I may be showing my age, but here are what I think are glaring omissions: Traffic - John Barleycorn Must Die, Steely Dan - Can't Buy A Thrill, Allman Bros. - 1st, Idlewild South and Eat A Peach, Dylan - Highway 61 & Blood on the Tracks, The Stones - Sticky Fingers, Crosby, Stills & Nash - 1st, Who's Next and Live at Leeds, American Beauty as only an Honorable Mention, pre-Buckingham/Nicks Fleetwood Mac? Not one selection by Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell or Janis Joplin? I know some may want to categorize the 1st two as folk but they fit the rock genre better than some of the metal groups on the list.
Jerry may not think Mick & Keith are worthy of carrying Jimmy Page's guitar case, but great music isn't always defined by instrumental pyrotechnics. Had there been a judgment category for radio overplay Zep IV would never have made the list.
