Maybe he likes small skylines with little in the way of scale and density. He's also got Paris and Moscow in there, after all!

I'm very sure about the first 15, but the rest is open for discussion/reshuffling. You're right that Mumbai should be in there somewhere. I do like Mumbai and think it's going to be one of the world's best one day.

Would you post your top 40; I'd be quite interested to read it.
