Apple’s controversial top 100 albums list ignores Brazilians and has a controversial top 3; I wait

English-only discs and a lack of transparency about the criteria have generated questions about the networks; I wait

The list of the 100 best albums in history chosen by Apple Music sparked controversy on the networks this Wednesday the 22nd. Among the complaints, the choice of almost all the albums in English and the absence of the Brazilian ones.

“It’s a list of the 100 best albums in music history that only has one album in English,” complained one user on X (formerly Twitter). “You can’t take this shit seriously.” The publication has been republished more than a thousand times.

It’s worth pointing out that the album is there A summer without youby the Puerto Rican Bad Bunny, sung in Spanish.

Officially, Apple says the criteria used were curated by a “select team” of experts. It’s unclear whether the number of plays on the company’s music platform was factored into the bill.

The selected group includes names like J Balvin, Pharrell Williams, Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), as well as “songwriters, producers and industry professionals” in music, Apple says.

Therefore, the first place was taken by Miseducationreleased by five-time Grammy winner Lauryn Hill in 1998. Subsequently, ThrillerIn Michael Jackson and, thirdly, Abbey Roadof the Beatles. See the top 10 places here.

The director of the American broadcaster MSNBC, Ryan Teague Beckwith, criticized the list’s lack of transparency. “Are they the best albums because every song is good? Are they the best albums of a genre? The most historically important? Apple doesn’t say that,” he laments.

In specialized criticism, the complaints that albums are liked 1989In Taylor Swift they were in 18th position – ahead of Pet soundsof the Beach Boys, in the 19th, and Revolvers of the Beatles, in 21. In this regard, Kind of blueMiles Davis’ 1959 album that revolutionized jazz ranked at number 25.
