Blender’s 100 Greatest American Albums

Talk about flushing all credibility down the toilet.  A list that doesn’t include Michael Jackson’s Thriller or Neutral Milk Hotel’s In the Aeroplane Over the See, but does include several greatest hits compilations and a freakin’ Kid Rock album.  Seriously.  It’s bad enough the entire list is presented as a slideshow to boost pageviews and takes about an hour to get through.  Thanks for that.  Honestly though: I considered not browsing through the list after The Replacement’s Let it Be came in at #98 and then Kid Rock had an album two slots higher.  Idiots know nothings (Including Neil Young and Joni Mitchell is sort of a joke, right?  Blender you do know they’re freakin’ Canadian?!?).  One more caveat, if you will.  Many of there selections were quite good and a person could do worse starting a collection with some of these albums.  However, Madonna’s Greatest Hits is not an album and couldn’t possibly be numero uno even if it were.    [Blender’s 100 Greatest American Albums]

      Joni Mitchell is Canadian. She's great, but definitely not American. Though, I suppose if Blender's definition of “American Albums” is any album recorded in America, then your guess is as good as mine. I take it to mean singers or bands born and raised in the USA, hence why Neil Young and Joni Mitchell should be excluded.
