Apple Music Reveals Top 10 Albums of All Time

After an extensive week of deliberation, Apple Music has unveiled its 100 Best Albums of All Time, with Ms. Lauryn Hill’s groundbreaking 1998 debut, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” claiming the coveted top spot.

The iconic album by Ms. Hill is flanked by other legendary works: Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” the Beatles’ “Abbey Road,” Prince’s “Purple Rain,” Frank Ocean’s “Blonde,” Stevie Wonder’s “Songs in the Key of Life,” Kendrick Lamar’s “good kid, M.A.A.D. city,” Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black,” Nirvana’s “Nevermind,” and Beyoncé’s “Lemonade.”

However, Apple Music’s rankings have sparked controversy on social media. Critics argue that the list overlooks Latin, country, jazz, and dance albums that have significantly influenced contemporary music. Additionally, some question the preference for recent releases over foundational classics.

Ms. Lauryn Hill’s “Miseducation” was a pivotal moment in music history, earning her the distinction of being the first rap artist to win Album of the Year at the 1999 Grammy Awards.

In a statement shared via Apple Music, she emphasized the collective effort behind her success, acknowledging the community leaders, artists, educators, and experiences that shaped her journey.

The full list, revealed incrementally over ten days, spans decades and includes diverse records—from SZA’s “SOS” and Taylor Swift’s “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” to Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” and the Beach Boys’ “Pet Sounds.”

As we celebrate these timeless albums, let us recognize the indomitable creativity and love invested in their creation. Whether you’re a devoted listener or a casual fan, music continues to connect us all.
