When composing their “definitive list of the best 500 albums ever made,” NME emailed company alumni from across many generations to submit lists of their favorite fifty albums of all time. Around 80 voters submitted lists. From those lists, each number 1 was allotted fifty points, forty-nine points for number 2 and so on. Then they used an identical scoring system for their “Top 50″ albums of the year for every year there’s been one. Finally, after all of the number-crunching, NME proposed “the final, definitive, definitely last of its kind, never to be repeated” Top 500 Albums of All-Time – here we go. To save you some time, we’ve compiled the top 20 albums below:
