Rolling Stone Magazine Updates 500 Greatest Albums

American magazine Rolling Stone has updated its list of “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. Over the years, this article, published in 2003 and amended in 2012, has been the most read and discussed article in the history of the publication (last year it received more than 63 million views). Now the rating has been revised to include new music that has appeared during this time.

As in 2003, Rolling Stone’s editors took a vote among readers. The updated list includes 86 albums that belong to the 21st century (among them there are many works by contemporary artists, including Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Harry Styles and others), as well as 154 collections that were not in the 2003 versions or 2012’s. The leader has changed on this year’s list.

The first place is now occupied by the album “What’s going on” (1971) by American singer Marvin Gaye. Earlier this position was occupied by the British group The Beatles and their disc “Sgt. Pepper’s lonely hearts club band” (1967).
