The Top Ten

1 Animals - Pink Floyd Animals - Pink Floyd V 1 Comment
2 Machine Head - Deep Purple Machine Head - Deep Purple
3 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden
4 Ride the Lighting - Metallica Ride the Lighting - Metallica
5 In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson

I can't believe they left out this... maybe only 5 song, but all of 5 songs are 10/10, hard to play songs. Rolling Stone Sucks... - somekindofaguy

This definitely deserved it along with other progressive rock bands. - Powerfultekin

It should be 8th place on the rolling stone list. - SammySpore

6 In Rock - Deep Purple In Rock - Deep Purple
7 At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian
8 Reckless - Bryan Adams Reckless - Bryan Adams

I adore this album - definitely one of the greatest ever! Critics always forget about this masterpiece while making their polls and charts - Irina2932

Great album all the way through, I usually have to skip a song or two on an album but with this one I don't, every single song is great

9 True Blue - Madonna True Blue - Madonna

When it comes to name Madonna's best albums, they always bring "Like A Prayer" and "Ray of Light". Both albums are fantastic but "True Blue" is even better. It gave us 'La Isla Bonita', 'Papa Don't Preach', 'Live to Tell' and 'Open Your Heart' - Irina2932

10 Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin

This album definitely deserved to be on the list, with great key songs like: Since I've Been Loving You, Tangerine, and Immigrant Song. I don't understand how it didn't make the list. - Powerfultekin

The Newcomers

? Tago Mago - Can Tago Mago - Can

The Contenders

11 Reign in Blood - Slayer Reign in Blood - Slayer
12 The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis

This album is real journey to another world - very deep, emotional and so adventurous - Irina2932

It's a shame that there are almost no prog albums on the list (except jethro tull and Pink Floyd)

13 I'm Your Baby Tonight - Whitney Houston I'm Your Baby Tonight - Whitney Houston

I would give everything to this melodious album. The title track, "All the Man That I Need", "Miracle", "My Name Is Not Susan" and "I Belong to You" were fantastic singles - Irina2932

14 Pump - Aerosmith Pump - Aerosmith

They gave credits to Toys In the Attic and Rocks but this one is no less impressive. "Janie's Got a Gun", "Love in an Elevator", "What It Takes", "F.I.N.E. ", "The Other Side", "Monkey on My Back" were released as singles - Irina2932

15 Homogenic - Bjork Homogenic - Bjork

"Post" received a credit but what about this masterpiece? - Irina2932

16 Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian
17 Selling England by the Pound - Genesis Selling England by the Pound - Genesis
18 Heaven On Earth - Belinda Carlisle Heaven On Earth - Belinda Carlisle

One of the greatest albums in pop industry. Singles "Heaven Is a Place on Earth", "Circle in the Sand" and "I Get Weak" were/are memorable - Irina2932

19 Painkiller - Judas Priest Painkiller - Judas Priest
20 Century Child - Nightwish Century Child - Nightwish

In the USA, they are not the biggest band, but in several European countries, it is a fact that whenever Nightwish release new material, it immediately tops the charts and becomes a musical blockbuster. They are not a band that get too much airplay, that is due to them not being mainstream pop but symphonic metal, but nevertheless their music is well known at least all over Middle Europe. Much of this success is due to this album, "Century Child", which not only is my personal favourite work by them (a concept album about the loss of innocence, with groundbreaking lyrics and a sentimental tone to it), it also was the first to enter the international market outside of their home country Finland. The singles "Bless the Child" and "Ever Dream" became huge hits e.g. in Germany and the album itself, which contains 10 excellently thought out songs, can be considered their Europe-wide breakthrough. Plus, for me it is the best record of the 2000s. - Martin_Canine
