Best Albums of All Time
The Contenders: Page 6
An iconic album which should be in the top 10 albums of all time. Every song tells a story, powerful emotive lyrics, classic ballads like Heaven Can Wait contrast with up tempo tracks like Dead Ringer for Love, and some tracks combine the two with a level of light and shade that modern artists today cannot emulate. Truly superb.
'Dead Ringer for Love' is not on this album, it's on, as the title almost gives a slight hint, 'Dead Ringer for Love'.
Still a major album today -paradise by the dashboard light, 2 out of 3 ain't bad are songs you can never really tire of - duncangreen
One of the best selling albums everV 8 Comments
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
Uncompromising in every way. It felt like a declaration of war when it came out.
Raw punk at its finest. London calling and dookie are also good.
It is an album, but they started something very important.V 5 Comments
Its hard to believe people are voting for sissy boy bands over this tough heavy album. What the hell people
One of their best. Great ballads. True power.
Best album ever. It contains "Walk" and "Mouth for War"; isn't it enough to be the best?
First 6 or 7 songs are great, then it slides a little bitV 2 Comments
Dream Theater fans need to vote, this is by far the greatest album of all time.
Seriously. This album. Go and listen right now. Honestly. Please.
Nicholas doesn't like this list.
"The Only One Scared Of Death Is The One That Didn't Contribute Enough In Life"-Makaveli The Don Killuminati - MAKAVELIthedon
Every single track was amazing and diverse in nature. It has a lot of top songs which defined Tupac's career
This is one of the greatest rap albums of all time by one of the greatest rappers who touched the mic. His lyrics were very deep, he brought emotion to hip hop and at the same time was a thug raised by the streets. He was a true inspiration! The greatest rapper of all time! Rest in peace Tupac!
First Double Disc Album in hip hop history, certified Diamond, and with Singles like How do you Want it and the smashing hit California Love how can it not be great. It should be in the top 50 or at least in the top 100. Other songs on this album are great too like : Ambitionz az a ridah, All bout u, 2 of Americkas most wanted, Only God Can Judge Me, Picture me Rollin', All Eyez on me,V 8 Comments
My favorite Maiden album from the 80's, it is their most consistently good work in my opinion, every song on it is worth listening to. Especially The Evil That Men Do and Infinite Dreams.
This whole album is just a damn journey to a place far away! Very underrated!
I love lots of MAIDENS songs but most of all The evil that men do
Masterpiece of an album.V 4 Comments
Wouldn't this be shocking if this actually was #28?
It is AMONG one of the worlds best selling albums, selling OVER 30 Million copies - SmoothCriminal
It has my #1 song of all time in it, SMOOTH CRIMINAL - SmoothCriminal
What has happened to this world?!? How it is so down?!? It has the third best music video in it- SMOOTH CRIMINAL! it has the sweatiest song of all time- MAN IN THE MIRROR! And also one of the best pop songs- BAD!V 5 Comments
Why the ever loving christ is Blue all the way down here? You tell me a singer-songwriter album that's more influential and more iconic than this one. I almost guarantee you it's gonna take you a while. River, A Case of You, and Big Yellow Taxi are all classics, but every song on the album is worth listening to again, and again, and AGAIN.
This is my all time favorite album. it is the high bar for all singer songwriters, with the possible exception of dylan. here is mitchell reflecting on the album " there's hardly a dishonest note in the vocals. At that period of my life, I had no personal defenses. I felt like a cellophane wrapper on a pack of cigarettes. I felt like I had absolutely no secrets from the world and I couldn't pretend in my life to be strong. Or to be happy. But the advantage of it in the music was that there were no defenses there either." - RecklessGreed
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!
So deserves to be in top 20 at minimum.
Better than Are You Experienced by a mile.
Every single song on this album could have been released as a single and I would buy it, this album is my all time favourite and it pains me to see it not even brake into the top 100 let alone not into the topten where it belongs, Simon and Garfunkel just might be the greatest duet ever, in my opinion greatest artist over all, the fact that I myself am 17 (posted in 2015) and idlize them so many years after they were creating music is a testament to there brilliance, if you haven't listened to this album I can't suggest it enough, every single song is excellent, bridge over troubled water, only living boy in New York, the boxer, baby driver, el condor pasa, cecelia... I could just list every song but that's just how fantastic this album is, even there live cover of bye bye love is fantastic, seriously just check it out and you'll understand why I love it so much
There really isn't a weak track. From the tranquility of "So Long, Frank Lloyd Right" to the raucousness of "Cecilia", it's flawless. - PetSounds
Many of the songs on this album were released as singles and very known and played but a real hidden gem on this album is 'The Only Living Boy In New York', quite beautiful.
This album should be in every collection; because it is great!V 2 Comments
Oh my gosh this album has so many amazing songs! I love it and I love Coldplay! They make fantastic music and this is my favorite album from them! You get amazing songs like Square One, What If, White Shadows, Fix You, Talk, X & Y, Speed of Sound, A Message, Low, The Hardest Part, Swallowed in the Sea, Twisted Logic (which is my favorite song on this album), and 'Til Kingdom Come. X & Y should be higher than this! Come on, people! Vote this amazing album higher!
all coldplay's albums is a masterpiece, except for the first album (Parachutes) x & y is not about performances or rockin out, its about beautiful tunes beautiful lyrics and being in coldplay's world, but a rush of blood to the head and viva la vida is definitely about rockin out, ps :coldplay definitely rullles!
This album is amazing. All the songs come together so nicely to form this message that the band is trying to make. Songs like Talk, a message, till kingdom come, fix you, are beautiful with both their lyrics and the music. This album should be ranked way higher! People should give it a listen because it truly is something great with every song.
Love this album xV 4 Comments
I just like the idea of animals throwing loads of poop at human beings. that just proves that animals don't like to be abused by humans so it's pay back time!
Has sold well over 23 million copies and has some of their best songs like "Longview" and "When I Come Around". Deserves to be in the top 15
The album that revitalized punk and created pop punk.
Come on guys! This is at least 10 times better than American idiot, which is way higher. This should be at least top 20V 2 Comments
What?! This is considered to be one of the best albums of all time by one of the best artists! Have people already forgotten Björk?V 1 Comment
