    Same here. Actually many moons ago, I went to a concert where one of the listed artists was the headliner. Went to see the opening act, and when I got there found out the week before he was replaced. The (replacement) opening act was OK. Had to walk out when the headliner came on (made it thru about two and a half songs). It was horrible. The worst concert I ever saw. There have been plenty of articles (and studies) like the below:

    Own one, know of 5 that's it and don't care for the music of those 5. I guess at 66 I''m so out of touch. But I still love good old Rock and Roll with some Jazz thrown in.

    I own 3, 2 by the same artist. I recognize only a hand full of the artist. Sorry, but who puts together this kind of crappy list.... I could easily name 50-100 albums that would probably be better then most on this list... I mean Justin Bieber, really,,,,

    How you manage to get Justin Bieber and Kamazi Washington on the same ‘best of’ list, is a mystery to me.
