Apple Music’s initiative to celebrate the greatest records ever made with the launch of an inaugural 100 Best Albums list culminates this week with the reveal of the top 10 albums of all time.

Before we tell you what are the best 10 albums of all time according to Apple Music, it’s important to mention that this list has been curated by the service’s team of experts alongside a select group of artists, including Maren Morris, Pharrell Williams, J Balvin, Charli XCX, Mark Hoppus, Honey Dijon, and Nia Archives, as well as songwriters, producers, and industry professionals.

That’s the main reason there aren’t too many surprises aside from the number 1 album, which is certainly one huge surprise even for fans of the artist. Without further ado, here is the list of best 10 albums of all time:

10. Lemonade (2016), Beyoncé
  9. Nevermind (1991), Nirvana
  8. Back to Black (2006), Amy Winehouse
