Albums that should've gotten better reviews by Rolling Stone

I kinda agree with this list. (via digg)

I certainly will be hunting down some of those I've not heard - except the (c)rap albums, natch. Though, De La Soul's 3 Feet High and Rising is good. Had rap gone that direction, I'd probably like it.

I particularly agree with the inclusion of Pink Floyd's Animals. Even though the Floyd made better albums, this is the one I still put on regularly. Also, when I went through the whole remastered Led Zeppelin catalogue, I found Houses of the Holy was one of the three albums of theirs I like all the way through.

I completely disagree with Joanna Newsom's Ys. I checked it out and was worse for the experience. It was akin to tipping a can up and expecting coca-cola but getting beer. It's fine if you're expecting beer and like it, but otherwise you just gag.

And they include my Flaming Lips, so this list is good.

Only 40? Talk about restraint!

Say, how about engaging in a little speculation: how many more "Anniversary Issue" covers can we expect Rolling Stone to print in the next five years? We know it's gonna be more than five. But just how many more?
