  1. There has been some criticism (or is it that just I feel like a learner too easily) of the Rolling Stone Top 500 Albums list on such websites as “http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/cm/member-reviews/-/A2AXIWOCL9XOMM/1/ref=cm_cr_auth/102-9090162-2324953” and “http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/listmania/list-browse/-/2FCBZPHETKAVF/ref=cm_aya_av.lm_more/102-9090162-2324953”.
