(Rolling Stone)   Rolling Stone has compiled the "definitive" list of the 100 best debut albums of all time, and the top ten albums alone is all the evidence anyone needs to see the magazine has lost all touch with reality   ( rollingstone.com) divider line

thismomentinblackhistory: show me: Abbey road not in top ten = FAIL.

It's a list about debut albums.

Paul died just before Abbey Road, so it was a debut album for the three beatles.

TheJoe03: Good job proving how ignorant you are of hip-hop culture, honestly...

Dude, I specifically referred to rap. Pay attention. Lauryn Hill can actually sing every now and then.

I was in high school when Rapper's Delight was released in the late 1970s. The music was stolen ("sampled" is nothing but a euphemism for "stolen;" stop pretending that it isn't) from Chic's "Good Times."

As for the musical aspect of the genre, you show yourself to be another ignorant old classic rock fan with a narrow mind about electronic based music. Production isn't easy, have you even tried to make a beat of any kind? BTW, have you heard of the Roots? They have set a trend where rappers now have backing bands at live shows, so again you show your musical ignorance.

Oh jeez, here's another kid who thinks that electronic music didn't start until the 21st century. FYI: electronic instruments date back to the 1920s.

I can produce a beat right here at my desk, by stomping on the floor or kicking the desk. It's not difficult. I've no doubt I could easily stomp on the floor AND cuss at the same time if I really felt the need to do so.

As for The Roots, I saw them perform at a jazz festival a few years ago with Betty Wright. She was awesome. One dude's yammering ruined the music, though.

You can put a band on a stage with yer average no-talent rapper, and it still won't change the fact that the rapper can't sing, can't write music, and can't play an instrument, just as putting a pile of shiat in a fancy box doesn't make it any less shiatty.

Hell, even Cheech y Chong's Blind Melon Chitlin has more talent than the average rapper.

What, Mary MacGregor's "Torn Between Two Lovers" didn't make the list?

If you stated hip hop shouldn't even be on this list, you need to log off, and go drink your Ensure in time for CSI.

italie: Elastica was so cool they debuted twice?

the saddest part is that I'm stone-cold sober.

I did have a not-horrible reason though. Alas, it plays better in reality than it reads in text.

L.D. Ablo: Lorelle: Subby is correct. Hendrix should have been #1, and the rap shiat doesn't even belong on the list.

Well, yes.

I might take rap seriously if they started writing their own hooks and playing instruments.

oh, so you mean the Beastie Boys. OK then, wtf is your point

Paleorific: Top ten are all worthy.  If you are not familiar with those albums... sorry.  My fave of the top 10 is Horses. Not only in my top ten debut albums but I would put Gloria in the top ten of Debut songs on debut albums.  Least favorite of thir top 10 would be GnR.

Like it or not, those rap albums, as well as Appetite For Destruction really did change the face of their genres.  Although Appetite has never seemed to really influence anyone musically -- can anyone think of anything else that sounds like Appetite, other than Appetite?  Being the highest selling debut album of the entire decade that it came out in (considering that it came out in late 1986) certainly counts for something.  I don't think there's any person who was alive and between 10 and 40 during that time frame that doesn't know it.  Except maybe the people who were living in a world that only included rap. :D  Which is why I can't say a lot about the rap albums, because I was living in a world that only included rock. :)

We also skipped solo debuts by artists who were already in well-known bands, which is why you won't see John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band or Paul Simon. We focused, instead, on debuts that gave you the thrill of an act arriving fully-formed, ready to reinvent the world in its own image.

OK, then why is The Band at #9?  They'd already been backing some obscure, Minnealpolis-born poet for what, 2-3 years?

Also Patti Smith has no business being #10 and Sex Pistols?  You can say it influenced a shiatload of bands bu musically, it kinda sucks.  same with Ramones.  the same song 11 times in a row?  Strokes is basically the same.

whoever made this list sucks at listing.

With the exceptions of 10,9,and 8 they were all good debut albums.

I was expecting to see Nickleback, Nirvana, Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park. That would have been a bad top 10 list.
