Generally they do. It all relies on who's writing it, what kind of taste they have, who they favor, etc.
There are plenty of great guitarists out there, and Michael is right, Dave should be on there.
But I'm like you, I really don't like lists composed by websites and magazines.
It always leaves me going "Really??". Especially when the jackasses at Rolling Stone decide they have the gall to make a list deciding who they think is best at what.
I'm going to take a guess and assume you haven't heard Tornado of Souls. It's on the same album.
Go back and listen again!!!
