Top Ten Albums You Must Own


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Nevermind the Bollocks - The Sex PistolsV1 Comment
22Van Halen - Van Halen

Possibly the greatest debut of all time and one of the greatest rock albums of all time.

23Songs From the Silver Screen - Jackie Evancho

Another wonderful collection from this gifted prodigy.. Sure to become a classic of transition for Jackie from child to young lady..

Tough to vote when there are two of her albums on the list (Dream With Me at 85). The PBS Great Performances "Music Of The Movies" concert of this album (also hosted by Jackie), is a delight - more so in my humble opinion than this CD. Keep an eye out for her THIRD PBS special later this year.

Actually, all of Jackie's albums are a must have. All of them are important parts of the musical history of our era. Can't wait to puchase Awakening.

Wonderful collection of songs that highlight Miss Evancho's vocal versatility. - BobG

24Heaven Up Here - Echo & the Bunnymen

One of the most influential bands ever. This album is pure heaven

25Reign in Blood - Slayer

Should be in Top 10 - TrappedInsideIt

26True Blue - Madonna

Catchy, intriguing, great... record! Love it - Abel123

27Machine Head - Deep Purple

The greatest album from my most favorite band. This is a very tight band at the peak of its musical productivity. - BobG

28Quadrophenia - The Who
29Back in Black - AC/DC

really? 49 Million albums sold world wide and this is #31?

For anyone who loves hard rock, this is the essential album. I think it should be top 5 on influence alone.

One of the greatest hard rock albums ever! A must own not only for an AC/DC fan, but any rock fan!

30All Mod Cons - The Jam
31Invincible - Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson is the Ultimate.. His each and every album is better than any one else's. L-O-V-E you forever Michael Jackson, "King of Pop, Rock and Soul", "God of Dance", "King of Music Videos". MJ IS FOREVER.

He was just pop.. Music to be heard, albeit good but not music to be listened to!

32Bad - Michael Jackson

Smooth Criminal is in it... AMAZING - SmoothCriminal

36The Blackening - Machine Head

This is one of the best albums ever released. Probably not as good as the follow up Unto The Locust, but still, one of the best albums ever released from any genre.
