Entertainment Weekly has compiled its list of “The 100 Greatest Albums.” Topping the list was the Beatles’ 1966 watershed release, Revolver, followed by Prince’s 1984 blockbuster Purple Rain, with the Top Three rounded out by the Rolling Stones’ 1972 groundbreaking double set, Exile On Main Street.

But for the first time in seemingly FOREVER, The Beatles ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band’ didn’t even MAKE the list! And Led Zeppelin ‘IV’, which normally shows up near the top of every list, came in at 79.
