Snagged from Acclaimed Music Forum:
The number of points and the number of ballots are presented on their website for all lists since 1997. Calculating the number of points divided by the number of ballots gives the following top 10 from 1997-2004:
1. OutKast - Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003)
2. Bob Dylan - Love and Theft (2001)
3. OutKast - Stankonia (2000)
4. Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels on a Gravel Road (1998)
5. Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation of ... (1998)
6. Bob Dylan - Time out of Mind (1997)
7. Kanye West - The College Dropout (2004)
8. Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002)
9. Radiohead - OK Computer (1997)
10. The White Stripes - Elephant (2003)
Difficult to argue with five of these records: Elephant, OK Computer, Time Out of Mind, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road and Love and Theft; great works of art people will always appreciate. I don't foresee 99 used copies of these records available at Amazon starting at $2.34. OK Computer has aged particularly well.
Of the other five I am unable to listen to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill end to end while Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is good but contrary to popular opinion Summer Teeth is Wilco's best. I am skeptical of the value of Stankonia, Speakerboxx / Love Below, and The College Dropout . They lack long term staying power. Outkast in particular is hype. I'd be surprised if anybody is listening to these three records in ten years.
