I don't see any details about how the list was created, but Heeb has a very respectable Alexa rating (44,556) and over 600 sites linking in.
It's not a music magazine, though. (For those who can't guess from its name, HEEB is a snarky Jewish pop-cultural magazine.) I kind of doubt that it's eligible, but I could be wrong.
from all the other non-music publications with lists? :) It it were a "best Rap Albums of the Decade,' that would be a genre-specific list, for which this publication isn't an "authority."
I think it's a list from Arye_Dworken only.
