Current Top 100 of 1971 – out of 915 qualifying albums assimilated (as of 3/22/16.)
In order to account for as many stellar acts as possible, I've limited each artist to one placement. For those with two or more top-100-qualifying 1971 studio albums, the higher placing release is included, while the second is listed underneath with a hypothetical placement in parentheses.
