Spin Mag's 40 Greatest Comedy Albums

Let the arguing begin! SPIN's 40 Greatest Comedy Albums of All Time. [via RGD]

We assembled a crack team of comedy nerds to compile an authoritative, definitive list of the 40 best comedy albums of all time.

Top spot goes to Bill Cosby's "To Russell, My Brother, Whom I Slept With." Overall, a pretty good list. But of course, there's plenty to argue with (e.g. "Bigger & Blacker" over "Bring the Pain"!?).

Yeah, decent list, with a few bold choices (particularly Rant In E Minor and The Day The Laughter Died, both from my favorite comedy-album subgenre: Unsympathetic Audiences).

But I'm convinced the real reason you see so many "best" lists on the 'net is that they're irresistable comment bait. Every time some troll checks in for follow-up comments, daddy gets a pageview.
