Damn, this issue didn't come out in the UK did it? I couldn't find it anywhere in London. Did the volcanic ash clouds prevent shipment or what?

The list never appeared in a print issue - it was online only at spin.com.

Re: Spin: 125 Best Albums of the Past 25 Years

Yeah i know the albums list is on their website but the actual physical 25th anniversary May issue of that - with 'the 100 moments that rocked our world' on the cover, that never out in UK so 2 months without new Spin.
