i felt that way, too, actually. i would've liked to have included erykah's last album, but it didn't make the cut. same with 'back to black,' 'tha carter III,' etc. i didn't have a genre quota as that would've been missing the point, and i'd sooner have not done it at all.

that's why i did it, so people can discuss the music in there and help me be a better writer. i'm not going to change my taste in music based on the reaction to the list, but if i can get people discussing the albums and critiquing the process, that's worthwhile for me.

i wasn't offended and don't need an apology; i do see it as a slight but feel it was deserved based on a few of our conversations and general opinions i express, since we really do see music very differently despite how much of it we have in common as listeners.
