Everyone knows that Michael Jackson 's Thriller is one of the greatest albums ever, right?  But there are some albums that came out more recently that are also worthy of that "greatest ever" accolade...at least according to Entertainment Weekly.

The new issue of EW runs down the "100 All Time Greatest" movies, TV shows, books and, yes albums.  Thriller comes in at #4 on the list, right behind The Beatles ' Revolver, Prince 's Purple Rain and the Rolling Stones ' Exile on Main Street.   "If you grew up in the '80s, this isn't just an album; it's the soundtrack to the first half of your life," writes the magazine.

Some of the more recent albums on EW' s list include Adele 's 21, which came in at #17, and Alicia Keys ' debut, Songs in A Minor , which is in at #57.   Amy Winehouse 's Back to Black is at #74. 

Here's a list of some of the other notable discs on EW's list:

13.  What's Goin' On -- Marvin Gaye

15. Born to Run -- Bruce Springsteen

18. Graceland -- Paul Simon

21. Innervisions -- Stevie Wonder

29.  Rumours -- Fleetwood Mac
