    Madonna has 4 albums on the list more than any other female artist. She is a real talent that consistently makes fantastic albums. Madonna is one of the most respected and admired artists this list proves that. Mariah was completely dissed not even making it on the top 500 once. It’s no surprise since everything Mariah does is disposable crap that will never be remembered.

    The numbers are wrong, I think by highest is at #278, nanda might have meant highest in number, lowest in position????? Because Michale makes his first appearance on the list at #20. Both of Janet’s albums are higher than any of Madonna’s albums.

    Good call. Note the Beatles appearing a plethera of times at high ranking positions. I have to say, I love my pop with the best of them. While not as excited about I have been like back in the days of NSYNC and Britney’s highest popularity, I still pop in a CD of theirs now and then and enjoy it! Still find myself wanting “Self Titled Debut” sometimes and not “Stripped”. But no matter what kind of music you listen to you should at least try out the Beatles. There’s really nothing like it and they encompass this whole musical pop culture…era that everyone discovers at one point and if you, person reading this, haven’t had a chance yet – do it now. They have something for every preference – so pick an album off that list and give it a try because there ain’t nuthin like em.

    I don’t really care for Rolling Stone Magazine, but Congrats to those who made ‘their’ list. I personally don’t need any magazine to tell me what is good or what is not, since I have my own opinion(s).

    If you’ll look at the print edition of the mag, it will tell you exactly who the reviewers are, and what their criteria was. If you’re dismayed by the lack of Mariah/Britney/Xtina then write a letter to the editor. Depeche Mode and the Cure have released albums that RS considers worthy to make the list. They just didn’t seem to choose to include any of your darlings based on their years of reviewing music. These writers have more experience listening to and writing about music than you have. And you know what? It IS all about the music, babe.

    I am ashamed to be a resident of Orlando. Janet is a world-renowned entertainer. One mistake does not in any warrant this action by Disney. PUT JANET BACK!
