Anything other than the pop list might be considered a genre list, and therefore ineligible.

Since it's the only one (to my knowledge) that's eligible, here's the pop albums list. (It's also single-critic, even though he's the music editor, which might give you an edge)

Why would the pop list be eligible and not the others? I'd say it's either all (if they are combined staff lists and pop, rock and alternative are all music styles that Metro Weekly usually follow) or nothing.

It doesn't specifically cover rock or alternative, but I guess that's right.

I think you can consider the idea of being a list of 150 albums, all albums cited from the three lists. Well, it's just a suggestion.

I particularly enjoyed all these lists.

Sorry Bruno, I will have to deem these lists ineligible. I only include lists from single critics if they are from books, especially if they are genre lists. Also, Metro Weekly covers other genres to, such as R&B/soul.
