Rolling Stone has updated their mammoth list of the 500 best albums of all time.
The new edition follows the magazine's rankings published in 2003 and in 2012. The latest list has some interesting additions and included votes from none other than Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jepsen and Stevie Nicks.
"No list is definitive — tastes change, new genres emerge, the history of music keeps being rewritten. So we decided to remake our greatest albums list from scratch," the article on Rolling Stone reads.
While the ranking may cause several disagreements in any household of music lovers, it provides an important look at the consensus from critics, musicians and industry workers who selected the albums.
In 2003 and 2012 the crown belonged to The Beatles' Sgt Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band - but in 2020's offering the record has slipped down to 24th place. The new number one is Marvin Gaye's 1971 album What's Going On.
The 300 contributors who helped select the list brought in some modern records, including Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly, Lana Del Rey's Norman F***ing Rockwell, and Billie Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. Rolling Stone notes that the 2020 list includes 154 new additions.
However, several music fans did not take kindly to the list - and their favourite albums being omitted.
One riled up Twitter user wrote: "This list is absolute trash. The dark side of the moon is one of the greatest selling albums of all time and its not even in the top 50? To make things worse you have Kanye and Kendrick Lamar in the top 20. Whoever made this list must be deaf."
"Questionable at best," another wrote.
An additional wrote they "will never be convinced" that a Taylor Swift album belongs in the top 100. Her 2012 album Red was in 99th spot.
The publication said the list was decided with ballots sent in by contributors who ranked their 50 favourite albums.
