Q Names 100 Greatest Albums Ever

With timing that could perhaps best be described as "questionable", Q magazine chose the first issue of the new year to name the "the 100 greatest albums ever!", as determined by a poll of their readers. Q clearly did not get the world's memo about list fatigue. C'mon, guys, would it have hurt to give us one list-free issue? Ah, well, the readers have spoken! Perhaps the editors were too excited to wait to tell us the results.

I don't have the issue, but the top 20 albums on the list have been revealed...
