Time Magazine’s All-TIME 100 Albums

image from hidiagelib.com

This is Time magazine’s All-TIME 100 Albums, as determined by Josh Tyrangiel and Alan Light, and published November 13, 2006.

The list was not ranked; the albums were simply listed chronologically. However, compilations were listed by release year, meaning a collection like Sam Cooke’s Portrait of a Legend 1951-1964 is listed as a 2003 release. The list has been adjusted here so that such collections are listed by the final year covered by the collection (in the case of Cooke, 1964) instead of the release date. After all, it is a bit odd to see artists like Sam Cooke and Hank Williams, who’ve been dead for more than four decades, show up with new millennium releases.

Hover over an album cover to see the name of the album, the recording act, and the year of release (or final recording in the case of compilations). Click on an album cover for the DMDB page that offers more information, such as the track listing, a full album review, and sales and chart details.
