The list author says: "Music is the the most subjective art form there is. Many think Sgt. Pepper is the all-time greatest album but I don't because it lacks the scope of The White Album and the confidence of Revolver. However, when it comes to production, Sgt. Pepper has both of those albums and all others beat by miles (except for Pet Sounds, which comes close). But production isn't the main thing I look for in an album's overall greatness. No, my criteria for greatness heavily relies on two things: how much does the album entertain me and does the album have potential for relevance. The artists I feel that best combine these two crucial elements are The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, 70's David Bowie, and mid-60's Bob Dylan. I am using a scale of one to ten and you will notice that based on my criteria no album is perfect, but some come pretty close. Fun factor is my opinion and importance is impact on the music industry and/or pop culture. Since this isn't a "my favorite" list, I put a premium on importance first and fun factor second. For example, Blur's The Great Escape is one of my favorite albums. However, it is not important whatsoever on a historical level. Therefore, it doesn't even make the list."
