    You should put top albums EVER as the title. And there is a slight bias though, it is Green plastic.

    That is a horrible top 50 albums ever list.

    There are so many things wrong with it... I don't even know where to start.

    A brief history of rock, according to the Greenplastic board members:

    The Beatles – Revolver (1966)

    Nothing good for 9 years

    Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here (1975)

    Nothing good for 10 years

    R.E.M. – Fables of the Reconstruction (1985)

    Nothing good for 6 years

    Nirvana – Nevermind (1991), followed by 46 subsequent albums

    Thank goodness for the last sixteen years, or music would really suck.

    That's not "a little" lazy. That's ignoring some of the best music ever released. VU? The Clash? Captain Beefheart? The Minutemen? Can? Faust?

    Damn homey, you fucked up hard.

    Mars - 78 (1986)

    has some old stuff, and some of the recent stuff. but it counts as an LP in my mind. they need more recognition either way. DNA too maybe?

    I like Complete Studio Recordings. The sound is better than on 78.
    The DNA compilation that came out a few years ago is great. So insane.
    I could never get as into James Chance.

    I'm glad I helped boost the VU album into the top 25. I voted that as #1, because it was about my favorite at the time. THat was a fun project.
