Right now, there's no Kanye on the list, and I would consider MBDTF to be his 3rd greatest album. So I would add The College Dropout first, and probably also Late Registration, before adding MBDTF. But 3 Kanye albums might be too many.

I think at least one is deserving, and if this list were to ever expand, then add more. Could The College Dropout be in the 200-191 range???

Yes, I think at this point The College Dropout should be added, and maybe higher than 191-200.

Good choices, but five of the Beatles albums in the top 30?

In my opinion, I don't think it matters how many albums per artist rank in the list. Those five Beatles albums are influential, popular, and acclaimed enough to warrant their placements in the top 30. Besides, this was just copy-pasted from the previous pages, and they've been discussed, at least a little. I do think The White Album belongs in the Top 30, but it's open to suggestions.

I can't see either The White Album or Joni Mitchell's Blue that high... maybe it's a colors thing.

Not too sure about this one...

Also, Modern Sounds In Country & Western could bump up a notch.
Titanic influence and musical impact there.

It's probably been said before, but man, what the hell is Dark Side of The Moon doing that high? Above Thriller? Come now. Thriller is more popular, more influential, and all that stuff.

Both are top 10. But I think Thriller is a top 5. And destroy anyone in popularity.

Thriller could probably jump Dark Side, but I'm not so sure it could topple the other three albums to make top 5. RS easily wins influence and musical impact, and the same case applies to H61R and LatA. As for Abbey Road vs Nation of Millions, it was discussed at length with everyone essentially settling on this breakdown:

Popularity: Abbey Road easily
Influence: Nation of Millions
Cultural Impact: Abbey Road
Musical Impact: Tie

It's still open for discussion.

I could see Modern Sounds moving up, I guess. At the most, it could beat Who's Next. The color albums could drop too, but I wouldn't know what to replace them with. I do believe that the White Album should stay in the top 30.

Easily wins?

I don't agree with Live at the Apollo in top 10. Really great album, but too high. Thriller is HUGE in every criterion.

Cultural impact isn't a criteria here. :confused:

Aside from that, I agree, but going by that it's a tie. Why not have influence, arguably the most important criterion, be the tie-breaker?

It isn't a tie. Abbey Road wins popularity by a far larger margin than NoM wins influence.
