    Illmatic the widely regarded as the greatest rap album of all time, right? Without looking at the data, I’d wager to say that there’s more unanimous agreement on this compared to other genres. In guitar-driven rock, people will alternatively point to Pet Sounds, one of several Beatles albums (probably Sergeant Pepper first), or something from Dylan.

    Is this just a function of hip-hop’s relative youth as a genre, or does it have something to do with the magnitude of Illmatic’s genius?
