Nme's 500 Greatest Albums

The NME just published their '500 greatest albums of all time' list. I've not rbought it in years, but I can't resist a good list. It's an interesting rselection, but it tries far too hard to be modern and controversial for my rliking. Here are a handful of the more contentious placings...
7Pink Floyd
The Dark Side of the Moon


#131. I'm not really a Pink Floyd fan, but number 131? Ouch!
6Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy


#21. A brilliant album and a modern classic, but the 21st greatest album of all time? No (although I sense Kanye himself would beg to differ).
5Radiohead
OK Computer


#20. "What?!" I hear you scream... "OK Computer ISN'T top?!"
4PJ Harvey
Let England Shake


#15. It's a great album, but come on, this is just silly. Many would argue it's not even PJ Harvey's best record...
3Arcade Fire
Funeral


#13. I actually agree with this one. Most publications wouldn't put this anywhere near as high, but for me, Funeral deserves to be recognised among the elite.
2The Strokes
Is This It


#4. *Newsflash* the NME loves The Strokes! No one can convince me this is worthy of a place in the top 100, never mind fourth place.
1The Smiths
The Queen is Dead


#1. I adore this record. It's my favourite Smiths album and undoubtedly a classic, but for me it's got far too many flaws to be considered the greatest of all time.
