Actually, according to the article that appears before the list of albums, this isn't his opinion, but the result of a mathmatical formula he came up with for calculating the Top 20 albums. Also, he mentions that his list is based solely on the American market, and does not include the European market, or any other market for that matter, because he felt it would complicate his results. So, if he's only including the American market, that would explain why his numbers look way off.

Having said that, after reviewing this guy's "method" and considering this is supposed to be representative of the American market only, the list is probably pretty accurate. I will admit though, I did think it was odd that Stevie Wonder was # 1. I don't know why. I guess I just didn't think he was that widely appreciated.
