Re: Is there a site counting down the most acclaimed albums of every year?

I get what you're saying: A ranking based on how many lists albums appeared on, without giving weight to where they rank on the list or other factors that AM takes into account. I think AM's ranking is more useful than this ranking, but I could see why you're interested in it.
