    I haven’t listened to some of these and a lot of them are kinda bad. What stands out for me is that Joni Mitchell didn’t win a Grammy for an album until 1996.

    Ray of Light and Back to Black were greats wins. Future Nostalgia was pretty good even if it did have a couple of sub-par tracks.

    Imo, “1989” and “The Fame Monster” are near perfect albums. Both are so well thought out and were flawlessly executed. Outstanding projects.

    And I love “Sweetener” as well. However, as much as I think it’s highs can make up for it’s lows, the lows are really low.

    I only ranked from 2010 onward, but “Back to Black” would have been up there with “1989” and “The Fame Monster”.

    1. Taylor Swift – 1989

    2. Lady Gaga – The Fame Monster

    3. Billie Eilish – When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

    4. Dua Lipa – Future Nostalgia

    5. Adele – 21

    6. Ariana Grande – Sweetener

    7. Adele – 25

    8. Kelly Clarkson – Stronger

    9. Bruno Mars – Unorthodox Jukebox

    10. Sam Smith – In The Lonely Hour

    11. The Black Eyed Peas – The END

    12. Ed Sheeran – Divide
