Rolling Stone Australia publisher The Brag Media has today announced plans to reveal the 200 Greatest Australian Albums of All Time in the iconic music magazine’s December issue, in partnership with Sonos, the world’s leading sound experience company.

The collectible double-length issue, available from December 6, features a special edition cover with an Illustration by proud Yuwi, Torres Strait and South Sea Islander artist Dylan Mooney.

The shortlist was compiled after an exhaustive nomination process that included over 800 industry figures, journalists, producers and artists. A hand-picked group of internal staff and music experts then undertook a deliberation process, before the final list was decided upon by Rolling Stone Australia using criteria that covered the cultural and critical impact of each record.

To celebrate the issue, Rolling Stone Australia and Sonos will host a livestream countdown on December 5 via the Rolling Stone Australia website with two special guest hosts. Sonos, leaders in home audio technology, will power the countdown of the Top 100 albums featured in the magazine, reaffirming their place as the leading sound experience brand among music fans.

Poppy Reid, The Brag Media’s managing editor, said: “We couldn’t be more excited for our readers to delve into this collector’s edition magazine. This magazine celebrates and acknowledges so much of the music that has soundtracked our readers’ lives.”

The records included on the final list span across a full 55 years, with its earliest two albums being released within just months of each other back in 1965, and the two most recent records arriving within days of each other amidst the 2020 pandemic.

Though their dates of release might be generations apart, these records – along with the remaining 196 – all have one thing in common: they’re impeccable illustrations of Australian musicians’ long-standing dedication to serving up the best art they possibly can.

Joel King, The Brag Media’s chief revenue officer, said: “Rolling Stone is music’s most trusted voice and the 200 Greatest Australian Albums issue will celebrate the work of Australia’s most beloved records. To bring readers this iconic list, we are proud to be partnering with Sonos, which delivers a high-quality music listening experience into customers’ homes.”

Arriving on December 6, the next issue of the magazine is set to continue the publication’s status as a major addition to the music and publishing industry, ensuring lovers of music, politics, and culture have everything they could ever dream of in one sharp homegrown package, while also helping to support long-form journalism in the process.

Earlier this year, Rolling Stone Australia expanded its brand with the inaugural Sailor Jerry Rolling Stone Australia Awards, and, according to new Roy Morgan data on the national magazine market, Rolling Stone Australia reached 152,000 readers in the year to March 2021, ahead of staple Australian mastheads Golf Digest, Family Circle and Men’s Fitness.
