American Top 40

In late 2005, the American Society of Magazine Editors revealed the Top 40 magazine covers of the Last 40 years. The selection of Rolling Stone's tribute to John Lennon (January 22, 1981) as #1, is a great pick, and would find very few detractors, if any. However, outside of a handful of other covers, I couldn't believe how indifferent I was toward the remainder of the list.

Perhaps my expectations for the list were too high, or I may be failing to realize the importance of the covers at the time of their release. Overall though, my feelings toward the Top 40 are lukewarm, or tepid if you please.
