The 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time: 100-1

1.The Smiths, The Queen Is Dead (1986). Rough Trade. What distinguishes it as the greatest ever made? For one thing, timelessness. It is a state-of-the-nation address which seems impervious to the passage of years. Morrissey and Marr compliment each other perfectly. It is one of those select few albums which seem to transcend its influences, working them into something singular and new.
