Take a hike, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Get out of here, London Calling. Shoo, Pet Sounds. Hahaha, Illmatic. Who let you in here, The Dark Side of the Moon? There’s a new greatest album of all-time, according to NME, and it wants to mope in silence. Because some albums are more unable to be happy than others.
The Smiths’ The Queen Is Dead has been named as the Greatest Album of All Time by NME.
Voted for by NME journalists past and present, each individual’s list of their top 50 albums was awarded points with 50 going to their top choice, 49 for the second and so on. These figures were combined with the same scoring method for NME’s Top 50 albums of the year for every year there has been one to create the definitive list of 500 essential albums published in the magazine.

Morrissey is planning to celebrate by delaying throwing bags of dog poop at NME headquarters until tomorrow.
