Top 10 Albums that Should've Been Added to the Book "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die"


The Top TenXW

1Reckless - Bryan Adams

How could they ignore this masterpiece. I just don't understand. Songs "Summer of '69", "Heaven", "Run to You" are phenomenal - Irina2932

2Permanent Vacation - Aerosmith

My personal favorite Aerosmith album. They added "Toys In the Attic", "Rocks" and "Pump" - all those albums are fantastic but I love "Permanent Vacation" the most. - Irina2932

3True Blue - Madonna

Iconic superhits "Live to Tell", "Papa Don't Preach", "La Isla Bonita" and "Open Your Heart" can't be ignored. The whole album was so fresh for the 80's. Even nowadays it sounds great & intriguing - Irina2932

4Come on Over - Shania Twain

So many young country (and country-pop) singers are inspired by this Twain's masterpiece. Taylor Swift claimed this album as one of her biggest inspirations - Irina2932

5No Need to Argue - The Cranberries

One of the best rock albums from the 90's, I think. It's not my personal favorite The Cranberries album but it's by far their most iconic one - Irina2932

6Crimes of Passion - Pat Benatar

She was the BOMB in the 80's. Did people really forget her impact and influence? - Irina2932

7Homogenic - Bjork

Bjork has 3 albums there...but this is her most iconic one. Why didn't they add "Homogenic"? I'm very surprised - Irina2932

8Whitney Houston - Whitney Houston

They didn't include any Whitney Houston album. I'm shocked and angry - Irina2932

9Kick - Inxs
10Secrets - Toni Braxton
