It's Official...Excessive Alcohol Use and Lack of Flouride Treatment in Water Causes Long-Term Memory Loss
NME, a British music magazine, listed the following albums as the GREATEST BRITISH ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME!!!!
1. The Stone Roses - "The Stone Roses"
2. The Smiths - "The Queen is Dead"
3. Oasis - "Definitely Maybe"
4. Sex Psitols - "Never Mind the Bollocks..."
5. Arctic Monkeys - "Whatever People Say I Am"
6. Blur - "Modern Life Is Rubbish"
7. Pulp - "Different Class"
8. The Clash - "London Calling"
9. The Beatles - "Revolver"
10. The Libertines - "Up the Bracket"
Now, many of these albums have a permanent place in my iPod rotation but GREATEST OF ALL-TIME? "London Calling" and "Revolver" were excellent and even genre changing albums but somehow derivative albums by Oasis and the Arctic Monkeys (two of my personal favorites of today but by no means ground-breaking) are considered better? Shouldn't the albums that were the foundation upon which most of these other bands built their music get a little more credit than that? And no mention of The Rolling Stones, The Who, Zeppelin? I'm no classic rock addict but I do know the roots of today's music that I do enjoy and feel perhaps a little deference should be given. Talk about excessive hyperbole!
