For me, I'm not going to post anything from like 2000 and on because I'm not sure the last time they updated, but anyway...
My favorite would probably be Machine Head by Deep Purple. I feel this album is somewhat (keyword: somewhat) underrated and gets overlooked. For me, it's flawless from beginning to end. Yes, most people know only Smoke on the Water, but there's 6 more than that (or 7 if you count When A Blind Man Cries).
You're Living All Over Me by Dinosaur Jr. Chicago Transit Authority by Chicago Blur by Blur 13 by Blur Promenade by The Divine Comedy Arthur or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire by The Kinks lots of jazz albums. I know it's rock magazine, but jazz was pretty underrepresented.
Bleach - Nirvana Dirt - Alice In Chains Badmotorfinger - Soundgarden Evil Empire - Rage Against the Machine Smash - The Offspring Animals-A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd Toxicity/Mezmerize/Hypnotize/System of a Down - System of a Down 1984 - Van Halen High Voltage - AC/DC Enema of the State - Blink-182 Slippery When Wet - Bon Jovi Holy Diver - Dio The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance A Day at the Races/News of the World - Queen Core - Stone Temple Pilots
Pretty shocked a lot of these aren't on the list tbh.
Some glaring omissions from the RS Top 500 for me were these - I could list a lot but this is just a sampling. Now some of these artists were all represented by other (mostly better) records but they should still be included too.
Others (Mission of Burma, Exploding Hearts, etc.) just aren't major enough for RS but I will say they had the good taste to add the Stone Roses in the updated list just under the wire so things change every few years which is good.
Replacements - Pleased to Meet Me Husker Du - Flip Your Wig Mission of Burma - VS. REM - Reckoning Ramones - Leave Home
Johnny Thunders - So Alone Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers - LAMF The Only Ones - Self Titled (or Even Serpents Shine) The Exploding Hearts - Guitar Romantic The La's - The La's
Great call on Arthur by the Kinks which can really stand with just about any British LP from the 1960s imo. Just an exemplary record for it's lyric content, musicianship, wit, creativity, etc. I think its an utterly unique album that sounds amazingly vital nearly 50 years on........

I doubt any of my favories are on that list. Metal is extremely underrepresented in lists like this, even though it's generally one of the most complex and diverse music genres of the last thirty years.
