Les 100 meileurs albums de tous les temps

Le magazine américain Time vient de donner sa liste des meilleurs albums de tous les temps.

Un classement essentiellement américano-américain, s’étalant sur les 50 dernières années.    

Malgré son caractère subjectif, cette liste a tout de même le mérite de représenter un échantillon éclectique de ce que représente le meilleur de la musique américaine des années 50 à nos jours.

Ainsi Elvis Presley (Sunrise, 1999) côtoie Eminem (The Marshall Mathers LP, 2000) et Metallica (Master of Puppets, 1986), tandis Mary J Blige (My Life, 1994) fricote avec les Beatles (The White Album, 1968).

Voici cette fameuse liste avec année, label et nom de l’artiste à l’appui:
