I have 10 and have no interest in the other 90

I bet 10 people on this site wouldn't dig my 100 most influential albums either

Same here.

The omissions are glaring.

I own 10 of them. Interested in picking up maybe 5-10 others.

I never understood the critical acclaim for Van's Astral Weeks. I love Van Morrison and his next 4 albums were all-time classics. I guess the indie folks and the critics love Astral because it is unconventional.

LMAO! Very true. It is as if one guy compiled that list. Even with artists that I agree with, I disagree about which album is on the list.

I have 27 and maybe a couple of others that I am not recalling. But I have got lots of promo copies for free over the years or albums given to me. Maybe another 10-20 passed my hands and then given away and likely not quick enough and they soiled my hands.

There must be 20-30 virtually unheard of acts there. Who was influenced if they never sold a copy?

Has there been 100 influential albums?

If there has, it certainly isn't that hundred!

I don't remember a flood of Astral Weeks-a-likes or Hejira-esque albums.

In a long history of ridiculously compiled lists this list is in a league of it's own.....

About time some magazine publishes the "The 100 Most Ridiculous Lists About Music Ever" list to compile and catalogue all that crap.

I had 35 (I am a bit of an Alt Rocker) but a lot if these I would not touch with a freakin' stick!

It looks to me like this bozo just posted his record collection and is trying to call it some kind of definitive list.

It does seem to be influencing the proper reaction though ...

I have 12 of those albums, and many songs drawn from a handful of the others. There are a few on there that I am curious about or have heard critics laud for years that I don't own, but many, many are not on my radar.

And Hotlantatim, I here you on Astral weeks. I think it is a beautiful, unique record that deserves praise, but I don't reach for it nearly as often as the ones that followed over the next 5 years. I think I have to be in a particular mood for it; it's not as accessible.

Ironically enough, I listened to Astral Weeks just this morning on my way in to work. A fine album indeed.

I have 14 of these albums and I have other albums by some of the list artists. There's some good stuff here, but the list itself is ridiculous. I think there is exactly one album on this list that was recorded before 1966: Time Out. And of course that's the only jazz album on the list, so apparently there are no other important jazz albums, and there were no rock albums of any importance recorded before 1966. Before that nothing counted and all the stuff that was released in '66 came out of a vacuum. Even funnier than that, they pick one Johnny Cash album and it's... his last album? Not Folsom Prison or anything like that, but a covers album he recorded in 2002 while he was dying of emphysema? I'm not saying it's bad and I know it has that cover of Hurt on there, but come on. It sounds like whoever made this list has exactly one country CD and that's it.

Right you are. I only saw the two old songs he rerecorded and didn't notice that the title track was new.
