Apple has announced its 'Top 10 Albums' of all time, completing the Apple Music 100 Best Albums list it began revealing earlier this month.

Apple Music's 100 Best Albums is a modern 21st-century ranking of the greatest records ever made, crafted by Apple Music's team of experts alongside a select group of artists, songwriters, producers, and industry professionals. The list is an editorial statement, fully independent of any streaming numbers on Apple Music — a love letter to the records that have shaped the world music lovers live and listen in.

The album crowned No. 1 is 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill'.

Upon receiving the news, Lauryn Hill told Apple Music, "This is my award, but it's a rich, deep narrative, and involves so many people, and so much sacrifice, and so much time, and so much collective love."

To celebrate, Apple Music's Zane Lowe and Ebro Darden sat down with legendary record producer, writer, and performer Nile Rodgers and Grammy-nominated artist and producer Maggie Rogers to reflect on the list during a special roundtable broadcasting globally today on Apple Music. Watch the full roundtable at music.apple.com.

Here's the Top 10 Albums announced today:
10. Lemonade (2016), Beyoncé
9. Nevermind (1991), Nirvana
8. Back to Black (2006), Amy Winehouse
