Entertainment Weekly's List of 100 Best Albums: Full of "No Shits", WTFs and Cliches

Wow EW. Way to break ground and really state the obvious with your monumental, completely necessary list of the 100 Best Albums from 1983-2008. And I completely and totally agree with System of a Down's "Toxicity" taking the number 90 spot. You have to make room for the true genius of Beyonce's "Dangerously in Love", Liz Phair's "Exile in Guyville" and Justin Timberlake's "Futuresex/Lovesound". I mean come on. "Exile in Guyville"?!? That overhyped piece of trash? You're just being nice EW cause Liz Phair has been around forever and she still hasn't put anything out but dated, novelty crap. The selections that I do agree with include Biggie's "Ready to Die" (appallingly at number 40), Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black", Outkast's "Stankonia", and Bjork's "Homogenic". These albums were not just something different, but they genuinely were true expressions of the artists. Anyway, here's the top 20, and if you'd like to see the entire list, just click here
