Love seeing Let It Be at #2. But I'm pretty sure we already have this.

I don't see it listed anywhere in this forum.

Are we good to go on this list, Henrik?

This list is already included, as "Neil McCormick, The Telegraph".

That list is listed as a 2009 list on AM though. Since this edition of the list includes songs like Lorde's "Royals" and Hozier's "Take Me to Church", can we include this list as an updated version of that previous list?

Just to clarify- is it that single-critic lists, in general, are OK for all-time general songs/albums lists, but not really for artists lists? The Post-Beatles list that Henrik said he'd include is a single-critic one, but he said he wouldn't include the Led Zeppelin one because it was a single-critic- is it because the post-Beatles one isn't just one act?

I didn't see that. I won't include it. Thanks for pointing it out.
