Every year, the Rolling Stone magazine compiles a list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The list is based on votes from musicians and industry figures. Some albums have received a number of nominations, but the list is ultimately a reflection of public opinion.

The 2010s have been an interesting decade for music. The decade has seen a dramatic change in the genres and styles of pop music. The decade has seen many pop blockbusters, sprawling hip-hop albums, and personal R&B statements. The decade has also seen the emergence of countless genre-less hybrid LPs and unexpected game-changing sets.
Although the list is not static, it will be updated periodically. A total of 236 albums were considered for inclusion, covering a variety of genres and the earliest days of rock in the 1950s. RIAA sales figures and Billboard chart statistics are also taken into account. There are no undisputed winners and losers on the list.
Among the most successful albums of the decade is “Sigh No More,” by Mumford & Sons. It was released in the U.K. in 2009 and in the U.S. the following year. This album is considered to be one of the most important albums of the decade, as it ushered in a folk revival. The album’s title track, “The Cave,” is a great example.
While Kacey Musgraves made her breakthrough as a country singer, her debut album transcended genres. This album fuses elements of pop, rock, disco, and electronic into a masterpiece. The singer’s voice is ethereal and the music has sweeping musical landscapes.
Body Talk (2000) may not be the best-selling album of the decade, but it received instant critical acclaim and built Robyn into a star on the live circuit. The album’s message of multicultural celebration and political statement was a middle finger to misogynists. While the album was recorded a decade before the death of Cave’s teenage son, its recurring themes remain relevant.
Another impressive music trend from the decade is the revival of vinyl. This format once seemed impossible to obtain. Its popularity led Official Charts to launch the Official Vinyl Albums Chart and the Official Vinyl Singles Chart, which are updated every week. The revival of vinyl led to the re-release of many classic albums by iconic artists.
