Bruno- noticed that, too. Also- no Donna Summer. Granted, the albums as a whole were never as revered as the singles.

I was very surprised because the list has many albums of the same genre.

I don't know, but the latest documentary against MJ may have probably influenced this omission.

Let's wait for the other lists from now on.

This is a fine list, but it's also evokes no personality -- it's more or less the same list any other critic may have made for the 70s, with a few modifications. I wonder what inspired them to do this now -- and why are no major critics going for all-time lists anymore??
