    And the runners-up are...

    Stylus Magazine makes an interesting case against the predictability of compiling a list of the greatest albums of all time. Rather than create a Top 100 list, they've opted for a Top 101-200 list. A little gimmicky, yes, but an enjoyable read. Think of their choices as not the "best of the best" but rather great releases by underappreciated artists, or 2nd-best albums that are arguably just as solid as the top releases that hog the spotlight (whether in popular music or otherwise).

    I'm not sure, however, if I should be impressed or concerned that I own 35 of the 100 albums listed.
