with tracks like hallowed be thy name and number of th beast this is the greates album of all time, and michael jackson? please
oh, I could name so many great things about this album no, masterpiece. and only 41st place? what a shame. invaders starts with an incredible riff and depicts the slaughters of the saxons in the olden days. #2 is about the movie"children of the damned"it is slow and melodic until a vocal genius by the name of bruce dickinson speeds up the tempo. the next two songs are nowhere near as amazing but still great. Then we get to the rock anthem"the number of the beast"which will knock any true metal lover of his/her feet. with a complex and insane riff followed by bruce dickinsons beautiful voice it is one of the most outstanding songs on this album. next is "run to the hills"with its remarkable drums which stands out over all of adrians glorious guitar work. now is my only problem with this album "Gangland"it is by all means not a bad song but it is so out of place in this wondorous album. finally is the single most influencial and beautiful and... oh just listen to it. it is call "hallowed be thy name"and starts of slow with bruces voice, almost a whisper in the background. it slowly builds up and up until BAM! the greatest guitar solo I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
if you have taken the time to read all of this. you must be a fan of iron maiden or your really bored. either way
UP THE IRONS!
This is the greatest metal album ever(yes, even better than Master of Puppets) and my personnal favorite album of all time. Hallowed be thy Name is without a doubt the best song on the album and the greatest metal song OF ALL TIME! Now this is a Masterpiece.

God only knows that this album rocks!
The album that Brian Wilson wanted to make and it shows.
This is how it goes...
pet sounds is the best album ever.
Brian Wilson is the greatest mind in pop music history.
This album was the most influential album on metal. It completely changed music forever
Nirvana, Linkin' Park and Green Day added nothing to the history of music. This did, a lot. Deserves a higher place than No. 23.
This album had all or their biggest hits, Iron Man, War Pigs, Paranoid
This album is absolutly amazing. Pete Townshend was in top form when he wrote this magnificent rock opera (that's right, ROCK OPERA) and it still endures today as being one of the most original concepts in all of music.
Go and listen to Tommy it will change your life or not I don't really care I've got other things to do.
The greatest concept album of all time and I love concepts especially the 'Rock opera' concept!More comments about Tommy - The Who

Amazing album. It have everything. From punk, over rock to funk and pop
its the best album I've ever lisin 2. it has so many styles of music.
this was their breakout album
London Calling is the best album ever created (Followed by Pet sounds), no matter genre! It opened so many doors for other bands like the suicide machines and Operation ivy. The way they mixed funk, ska, punk and classic rock was unique back then, and still is.
Punk rock hit it's pinnacle with this one.
Now would be a time to make some honorable mentions - Groups that just missed the cut: Van Halen, Rush, The Who, The Rolling Stones (I was even considering Johnny Cash).
Epic have you heard something for nothing? The temples of syrinx it is pro! Rush is such a talented group of guys! Bass the guitar and Neil's drumming! It is amazing
2112 is the second best song ever (behind Free Bird) and this is a insanely good album, deserves 1st places. All the song are pure perfection. Man I love this album.
An amazing piece of art and music, definitely one of the best albums, needs a higher rating...!More comments about 2112 - Rush

This guy was way way way way way ahead of his time
All I can say is get this album it will change your life and it will change the way you listen to music. It is without doubt the greatest album of all time
I like all songs in this album.
I own it, I love it and can't stop listening to it! Amy rocks! Yes, there are other good albums on this list, I'll admit that, but this one rule!
This album should be higher up! It is one of the best albums you can listen to! Amy continues to grow what rock music can be!More comments about The Open Door - Evanescence

Its michael jackson and what more do you need? Give into me, who is it, remember the time, dangerous! Greatest songs of the 90s. Anybody who can be discreet enough to see through an artist with his art will love this classic album
If Eddie had taken both barrels instead of Kurt, these guys would be considered the most influential band of the grunge scene.
Best grunge album ever made, I would dare to say this album is tied with "London Calling" or "Re"
All the songs that made this album are wonderfulMore comments about Ten - Pearl Jam
The best WHO album by far, been listening to it on and off for thirty odd years. Still brilliant.
Madonna's Ray of Light is purely and simply, a work of art. Just listen to it and be engulfed in its ambience and artistry. Certainly an emotional, mature, and introspective album. Definitely some of Madonna's best work.
All songs bang on! Eminem at his best after marshall mathers LP
Fantastic album, one of his best, if not, his actuall best
This album opened the gate for finger tapping explosive guitar solos.
For grab your *****, EXCITEMENT,non-cerebral,kick ass guitar,no pretense,straight ahead ummm ROCK AND ROLL..don't overlook this one!
The beginning of heavy metal.
My all time favourite Album. All the lyrics are very clever, there is a huge variety of differnt styles and the songs actually make sense. They speak the truth in a deep way. Rise Against just figures out what has to be said and even if it hurts, they push the finger right into the open wound. Aditionally, the album contais some of the best songs ever to be written too, like Prayer Of The Refugee, Worth Dying For or Survive.
It's a shame that more people haven't heard the magic that is 'Highway 61'. It can only be described as, quite frankly, one of those albums that changed everything. Without this album, as well as 'Bringing It All Back Home', Dylan essentially invented modern rock music as it is today.
I hate my generation. MJ dies and becomes the greatest thing since the wheel, he's overrated one of the greatest entertainers ever yes but his songs are par. The fact that Highway 61 is this low is crap it is ranked #4 of the all time records according to rolling stones magazine. I know this list is crap because Sgt Pepper and pet sounds are also two of the most important albums ever but not in the top ten.

an amazing album in the top 5 most likely of all time albums...
The White Album is truly a great album! I love it so much. All of The Beatles albums are the best!
It's called the "White Album" only because the album had the "Beatles" spelled out and that was it on a white background.
The king of the guitar at his best. All Along The Watchtower, Crosstown Traffic, Voodoo Chile. This album is electric, energetic, original, full of virtuoso Hendrix performances. This is the best album ever produced!
I was curious and bought the album and it was a good move :) Its great! His accent is cute :)
Do you want romantic? Do you want to dance? Do you want to sing? Do you like rhythm? You'll find songs for all situations. Menowin's voice stimulates all feelings.
On Saturday I had the pleasure to visit the concert in Flensburg (Ger). It was G R E A T. Menowin made jokes with us, he went around the fans and he sang in a way, I've still got mountains of feelings in my heart!More comments about White Chocolate - Menowin
STADIUM ARCADIUM IS THE BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME. NOTHING COMES CLOSE.
Blows my mind. The instruments, the melodies, just straight jamming for 28 tracks straight. No bad songs here at all.
wet sand.. beautifully written amazing solo.. one of the best two-disc albums for a long timeMore comments about Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers
This album deserves to be higher, I have heard this album too many times and I still don't get enough, it's very good. (even though Absolution is my favorite Muse album =P)
So good I downloaded it on itunes and still went out and bought the CD, just in case my computer wiped it or something
THE AWESOMESET ALBUM E> V> E> R>! I have listened to this album so mant times that I know EVERY song on it by heart. This needs to be higher on the list!More comments about Origin of Symmetry - Muse
Led Zeppelin's masterpiece. The best double album of all time because many successful bands of the '80s spent all their time redoing 5 songs on this album over and over again. Better than any other Led Zeppelin album and way better than any new cruddy artists work.

The greatest punk album of all time. This is THE album of the people. Even though it's rough around the edges, without it, music as we know it wouldnt exist
This needs to be higher, no diamond album should be rated this low, with meaningful tracks like Stan and songs to show off em's skills like the real slim shady, this album is the complete package.
You can't talk classics without bringing up eminem
This album has it all. At a time when Eminem was getting criticised for all his controversy from his first album. So what does he do, make an even more controversial album and it became an instant success. How can a diamond album that sold nearly 2 million copies in its first week be this low. The whole album is packed with genius songs and lyrics and it was an album that told everyone to shut up and listen because Em couldn't care less. A masterpieceMore comments about The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem
