I guess they do these lists on purpose because it gets them hits. Same with the more general 'greatest songs/albums/bands' lists.

that's the point of lists, it reflects the author's opinion and will never match everyone else's, creating this discussion while generating page views.

My first problem with this list is the way it was done. Including B-sides is cool but including covers doesn't make sense to me. I also think you'd probably get a more coherent list if it was just done by one person. This one seems to have been done by a panel of three.

Every list like this is going to have some choices that just make you shake your head because it's so subjective but this one seems to have way more than usual:

146) Deepest Blues Are Black
139) Wattershed
119) Outside
89) Miracle
88) Gimme Stitches
50) Hey Johnny Park
36) All My Life

Those are the ones that strike me as just egregiously wrong and there are others in there that I'm sure some of you would take issue with as well. Again it's not that they got some "wrong", but rather just how many they did.

The only thing that redeems this list even slightly is Aurora at #4. Not quite right as it belongs in the top spot, but at least it gets the respect it deserves.

You'd be surprised. Most of the stuff you've said in the album thread seems pretty spot on to me
