Albums from the 21st Century that Should Be on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time but Aren't

I know, this list is inspired from Martin_Canine's songs list.

The Top Ten

1 Lateralus - Tool Lateralus - Tool Product Image

Lateralus is one of Alternative Metal's greatest albums. It surprises me it's not on the list. - Mumbizz01

Thank you for putting this at #1. It's seriously one of the greatest albums of this century. - cjWriter1997

One of the best albums of all time, no question about it.

2 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West Product Image

This album proves to you that some mainstream hip-hop can't be bad after all. - Mumbizz01

It should replace Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on the list.

#353 on the 2012 edition - djpenquin999

My bad. I did my perfect research on a website called "Genius" And I must of not noticed. Sorry 'bout that. - Mumbizz01

3 Illinois - Sufjan Stevens Illinois - Sufjan Stevens Product Image
4 To Be Kind - Swans To Be Kind - Swans Product Image

This is an severely overlooked album. Not many know about this album except people who like more obscure music genres. But this is probably one of the most atmospheric, chilling and creative experiences I have ever heard. - cjWriter1997

Unfortunately Rolling Stone don't really include many obscure albums on their lists. - Powell

5 Blackstar - David Bowie Blackstar - David Bowie Product Image

Although it was great it was made after the list was compiled so it could not have been included.

Blackstar was the final album by Bowie just before he died two days later. And this was his swan song. Deserves to be on the list. - Mumbizz01

6 MBV - My Bloody Valentine MBV - My Bloody Valentine Product Image

This was the first album in such a long time by My Bloody Valentine. Should be on the list. - Mumbizz01

7 Madvilliany - Madvillian Madvilliany - Madvillian Product Image
8 Blackwater Park - Opeth Blackwater Park - Opeth Product Image
9 Dopethrone - Electric Wizard Dopethrone - Electric Wizard Product Image
10 Merriweather Post Pavilion - Animal Collective Merriweather Post Pavilion - Animal Collective Product Image

The Contenders

11 Mutter - Rammstein Mutter - Rammstein Product Image

Not only was this album a massive blockbuster in their home country, it was also a huge hit internationally and with "Mein Herz brennt" and "Sonne" has two of their best known songs. It also had great reviews. Please, a Rammstein album should be on the list. If not "Sehnsucht", then "Mutter". - Martin_Canine

12 Epic - Blood on the Dance Floor Epic - Blood on the Dance Floor Product Image
13 Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven - Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven - Godspeed You! Black Emperor Product Image

The fact that it's on neither makes me want to break things. - djpenquin999

14 The Eminem Show - Eminem The Eminem Show - Eminem Product Image

Had songs like "Sing for the Moment", "Cleaning Out My Closet", "Till I Colapse" and "Without Me" and is considered one of Eminem's greatest. - Martin_Canine

15 21 - Adele 21 - Adele Product Image

I am very sure this album will become a classic in the future.
Adele is generally acclaimed by critics and both mainstream and indie audiences of every age and gender. Adele is a great songwriter and has a certain nostalgic charm but nevertheless is very modern. - Martin_Canine

16 Bangerz - Miley Cyrus Bangerz - Miley Cyrus Product Image
17 Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven - Kid Cudi Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven - Kid Cudi Product Image
