The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the National Association of Recording Merchandisers has released their list of Definitive 200 albums you should own. As with all lists like this, there are some questions about rankings, dubious omissions ("Odyssey & Oracle," Soundgarden, "Forever Changes," Janis Joplin, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown) and curious admissions (Creed, Jewel, Matchbox 20, Kid Rock). It's a very contemporary list, and also a very commercial one, which I guess is why there is such a prominent link to retailers.
Anyway, let the debate begin.
