Regarding Robert Hilburn's "Best Albums of the Decade" ("10 Years Later," May 17), he has once again focused on only the groups that he personally likes. I could have predicted half the groups in his Top 10 just by reading his past columns.
By disregarding other forms of music, Hilburn overlooked such notable albums as these:
AC/DC--"Back in Black." The quintessential heavy-metal album.
The Police--"Outlandos d'Amour." This album influenced a whole generation of new wave and white reggae bands.
Pink Floyd--"The Wall." A stunning masterpiece proving that even rock can compare with the best forms of art.
Rush--"Moving Pictures." It was this album that ended the progressive rock era, and nobody was more progressive than Rush.
Next time, I hope Hilburn will take a broader look at the music around him. I, for one, don't like punk, yet even I have to admit the Sex Pistols were very influential. Try some other forms of music, Robert. You just might like it.
