Runs him through with a broadsword--

List of the "definitive 200" albums that I don't currently own in any format:

1, 7, 10, 12, 17, 18, 21, 23, 27, 33, 52, 53, 57, 60, 61, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 74, 76, 78, 82, 83, 84, 86, 87, 88, 89, 91, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 107, 110, 113, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 125, 126, 127, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141, 144, 145, 146, 147, 148, 150, 151, 152, 153, 154, 155, 159, 160, 161, 162, 166, 168, 170, 172, 173, 174, 175, 177, 179, 180, 182, 183, 184, 185, 186, 187, 188, 190, 191, 192, 193, 196, 197, 198, 200

I hereby announce a ten dollar prize to the person who can correctly list these albums in descending order of the preposterousness of the album being on the list in the first place.

I'm not going to go through the whole thing, but any list of the "Definitively Non-Definitive 200" has to start with ranking "Supernatural" (which you own, but so do I) number 13.

I can only assume you're talking about the definitive200.com list.

The list is very flawed

I mean Shania Twain's Come on Over, Really? Kid Rock? Matchbox Twenty? Almost all the Beatles Albums? I think they should limit it to one album per artist.

The worst on the list is the Soundtrack to Forrest Gump. A soundtrack does not count unless the music is original.

The sad part is that I own, or have owned a nice chunk of these albums.

Tomemos, I think I would be more inclined to start with Matchbox 20, like Christal, but I will admit that there is considerable overlap there.

Jesus, I didn't get far enough into it to see the Matchbox Twenty. You're right, that is more egregious.

Supernatural isn't a terrible album, but it's the ranking that gets to me. They put it in the top 7% of, um, all albums released ever.
