Well then, “Top” lists are so popular. Everyone has a top 10 everything and the point is- who cares about another’s opinion?
A lot of people put a whole lot of merit into others opinions and for the life of me I cant figure out why. If I like an album why should you? For that matter why should I like something you do? I have this debate far too often. Don’t tell me something is the ‘best of all’ because that’s an opinion. Mozart, Bach, Stones and Kinks…doesn’t matter. Everyone is someone’s favorite.
What I love is the backlash these things cause. Like Bob Seger, worse most disgusting performer of all time- but his parasitic fans will eat you alive for saying that cuz its not their opinion.
Right now citizens of Great Britain are having a cow because Sgt Peppers isn’t on the list. Why? Who really cares what Entertainment Weekly thinks.
Their top 20 (which I include below) is chock full of crap(excluding number 5 of course)
But I digress.. critics criticize and fans fanatasize’s and neither makes a hill of beans in the end. I find some of this fascinating though.. Revolver? Really? Out over every album…..Revolver?
