The selections were chosen by NME staff past and present, plus a host of bands and industry experts that included New Order, Ian Brown, Arctic Monkeys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dave Grohl, Alan McGee, Michael Eavis and more. The full jury is listed in this week’s NME magazine.
It’s worth pointing out that the list that was circulated this morning is the top 50 – and that NME.COM can now unveil the full list of 100 albums here.
It’s also worth adding of course, that this is just a list – a way of celebrating the music we love, debating it and sharing it.
If you disagree with our choices, you can vote for your own favourites on our Greatest Albums Of The Decade Reader’s List.
Meanwhile, now’s your chance to tell us what you think. Who did we miss out? Who should we have placed higher – or lower? What would your list look like? You can comment below or have your say by voting for the NME Readers’ Albums Of The Decade list.
