A list published by Italian magazine "Il Mucchio Selvaggio" in 2002. It's a list of the best 400 albums divided by decades. For every decade, from 1961 to 2000, 100 albums are divided into three groups: the best 20, the following 30 and other 50.

Thanks to Giuseppe Morales for sending me these lists.
