Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" begins with a catch: "Tastes change, new genres emerge, the history of music keeps being rewritten."

This year's list, released last week, marks the second time the iconic music magazine's canon has been revisited, recompiled and rewritten since its original publication in 2003.

It seems a shame then that Rolling Stone’s musical brain trust of writers and industry contributors — among them the likes of Beyonce, Billie Eilish, The Edge and Stevie Nicks — didn’t take the opportunity to hold up albums from the world’s non-English-speaking artists and bands.
