221 Black Holes and Revalations - Muse Black Holes and Revalations - Muse

Real good album if you asked me there buddy, I swear to ya buddy, If I ever saw the guy who decided to not vote for black holes and revelations, I'd slap him right in the patella buddy. Oh I swear to ya, If I ever met a man who didn't think this album is the best of all time, I'd shoot him right in the aorta if you know what I mean buddy.

Aww... COME'ON MUSERS! This is the BEST ALBUM EVER! Need some cooperation here... *waiting*.. "Why, why, why"..

222 Discovery - Daft Punk Discovery - Daft Punk

One of the greatest albums of all time in my opinion. Even though most people would consider this album to be electronic, there is at least one song for everybody. Whether you like Classic Rock, or Dubstep, or Country, or Jazz, there is bound to be a song you'll like on this LP.

Seriously, just about every song on this album is a masterpiece, and if you're an American you've probably heard all of them.

I love this album in my opinion it even better than random accsess mermorys

223 Scoundrel Days - A-ha

The best Song of the best album ever from the best band of the world. Scoundrel Days, the song, is like a part/page of a mysterious tale/book and Scoundrel Days, the Album itself, is full of tales about human lives. Everyone can find a part of his soul in every song in this album. Scoundrel Days is one of the best Albums ever made by a band. A-ha Forever

Just a wonderful Album of the best band ever! All songs are fantastic!

One of the best voice in the world of music. Scoundrel days, Swing of things and The weight of the wind are awesome songs".

This is a brilliant album which mostly overlooked by a lot of people

224 Sheer Heart Attack - Queen Sheer Heart Attack - Queen

An album that preceeded the greatest band in the world's greatest album, a night at the opera. This album encompasses every genre that rock and roll truly is. "Stone Cold Crazy" has gotta be the greatest metal song ever written, and it was the first of its time. Queen's musical genious and arena rock domination started with this classic album.

Great from beginning to end. No duds as there are on other Queen albums (even though one admires taking chances).

226 The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails

Beautiful, complex and honest. Trent Reznor's best and most tragic work. Not the right sound to resonate with the masses but just right for the disenfranchised or depressed. Must have listened to it 100 times by now and still in complete awe. Musically it's brilliantly layered and lyrically it's cathartic. Most importantly the coherence of the album makes its concept work all the better, allowing the listener to identify with the protagonist and follow him on his decent into nihilism and suicide. If you haven't listened to this album please do! You may find you love it even more than me.

This brought them to success. Greatest metal album of all time.

I think from a musical and a technical standpoint it is extraordinary but the lyrics can truely resonate with people in their darkest times.

227 Weezer - Weezer Weezer - Weezer

There are some fantastic albums on this list, and I would agree with the top 11 for the most part. Abbey road, the dark side of the moon (especially), thriller, and OK Computer are fantastic albums in their own right. The blue album is also fantastic however, #187 is borderline blasphemy. #1, no. #10? probably not. But dear god, it's better than Selena Gomez. I like to think that an album can be judged by the number of singles it has. while 1 or 2 is pretty good, the 4 off of this album at least put it higher than #100.

A perfect balance between accessible pop hooks and brilliant instrumentation. An absolute classic.

Why is this so low? Weezer is the best

Name one bad song on this album. You can't they're all amazing

Nicki is the queen of rap. She's iconic. This is not my favorite, it's The Pinkprint, but this is iconic as well.

232 Vs. - Pearl Jam Vs. - Pearl Jam

Just a truly fantastic album in all respects. It is hard rocking, true grunge. Go, Animal, Dissident, Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town, Leash, Indifference! Just plain awesome. I cannot believe that this album is not in the top 100.

Eddie's powerful voice, Mike and Stone's badass guitaring, Dave Abbruzzese's sick drumming and Jeff Ament's deep bass makes this album one of a kind.

By the way, look at the album cover while listening to the album, and it's theme matches the album. Its awesome.

Doesn't Vs. Just make you want to kick something? In a good way? It isn't quite at the level that Ten is at, but it sure is a fine album.
