Spin’s 125 Best Albums of the Past 25 Years

Talk about the big tease.  Spin compiles the 125 best albums of the past 25 years, and yet the magazine doesn’t reveal number 1 (U2’s Achtung Baby) in their crappy online slideshow/pageview grab list.  It’s a bit surprising to see the alternative music magazine fall so heavily for hip-hop, and as far as lists goes it’s not bad.  Certainly worthy of discussion.  The Smith’s better than Nirvana?  Ballsy move, but one I’m not sure I disagree with.  As time wears on, no album has aged worse than nevermind.

    Yowzers, that's what you get for trying to look at the list on IE6 at work. I'm just going to facepalm myself all morning…
