About The Album Project, jtrichey wrote:
Heading into next month's vote I've been wondering whether there is just a general bias against R&B and more mainstream acts in this project. I've been nominating Beyonce's self-titled album for a few months now and it mystifies me how it can't get past 2 votes. It's: a) hugely poular b) one of the most overwhelmingly well-reviewed albums of the year (14 on P4K's best albums of the decade list) c) kind of a landmark release in that it's sudden roll out was a game-changer in the industry and it's pretty much the poster album for modern feminism. If this was a "rock" album it would have sailed on the first few months it was eligible but it's kind of a glaring omission as time passes by.
I wasn't even a Beyonce fan before this album but the coverage her VMA performance got reminded me how her album isn't even close to being inducted, and probably won't be at all. Kind of a shame for one of the defining artists of our times.

Considering it hasn't even been out for a year it is kind of hard to call it a glaring omission, IMO.
