Of the past 14 years, GQ Magazine  is boldly claiming that Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is the “Best Album of the 21st Century” thus far.

“It could’ve been any one of the seven albums West released this century, as fascinating a catalog of celebrity, triumph, love, loss, terrible puns, pretty decent puns, that was ever fucking put together by a single artist,” GQ says. “MBDTF was just the record where he talked about all those things at once—a portrait of a man seizing the spotlight, drowning in it, and then somehow finding a way to turn that harrowing experience into art. Anybody who wants to be famous or make music for a living—or do both at the same time—should be forced to listen to MBDTF first. The rest of us are free to enjoy it for the bloody, hard-won, titanic achievement that it is.”

Rounding out the top five are: Is This It by The Strokes, Stankonia by Outkast, Discovery by Daft Punk and Sound of Silver by LCD Soundsystem. Jay Z appears on the list with The Blueprint at twelfth place. Check out the full list and reasoning at GQ, do you agree?
