This week, Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums will be bringing you another episode of our sister podcast, Rolling Stone Music Now. Rolling Stone staffers Brian Hiatt, Rob Sheffield, Jon Dolan and Brittany Spanos discuss the old list, the new list and the key differences between the two, including the abundance of 21st century additions and a brand-new Number One. The roundtable of writers and editors detail the voting process, changing tide in critical taste and the online reaction to the list. We will be back next week with a new episode of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums.
