Apple Music 100 Best Albums List: 7 Legendary Bands Without an Entry

The Apple Music 100 Best Albums List is the latest music list that the internet is talking all about for good, bad and ugly reasons.The music streaming service announced the list in a May 13 press release and called it "a celebratory list of the greatest records ever made." Naturally, a statement like that means this list is very subjective and was seemingly designed to start conversations. Who Helped Determine the Apple Music 100 Best Albums List? According to the aforementioned press release, this list was "crafted by Apple Music’s team of experts alongside a select group of artists, including Maren Morris, Pharrell Williams, J Balvin, Charli XCX, Mark Hoppus, Honey Dijon, and Nia Archives, as well as songwriters, producers, and industry professionals."The list was not determined by any streaming numbers Apple Music has collected over the years and is touted as "an editorial statement."Apple Music's senior director of content and editorial Rachel Newman said in a statement, "100 Best brings together all the things that make Apple Music the ultimate service for music lovers — human curation at its peak, an appreciation for the art of storytelling, and unparalleled knowledge of music and an even deeper love for it." https://youtu.be/_Nj8eu1gO3E?si=rhjoaK1S_IuazDKG A Brief Overview of the Apple Music 100 Best Albums List We'll leave it to you to scroll through the list in its entirety, but there are some great takeaways about the list.For starters, very few artists on this list have more than one title on it, which lends itself to some great diversity.
