101The Bends - Radiohead

Everyone says OK Computer is their best, but I love The Bends. "Every" song is masterpiece. - sunsnasher

This needs to be up higher, at least in the Top 25, cause this is Readioheads best Album! - Lauda123

102The Queen Is Dead - The Smiths

What is wrong with you people this album is a masterpiece! I saw more than one Linkin Park albums on here - what we have here on this sight is a bunch of Eminem Linkin Park Michael Jackson Pink Floyd Green Day butt kissers!

104Bat Out of Hell - Meatloaf

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

Great album one of the best selling of all time

105Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols - Sex Pistols

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.

107S&M - Metallica

Metallica are an inspiration to all musical aspects, S&M blows your mind as it sets the scene for those who enjoy Metallica, and for those orchestral fans, utterly amazing album with two amazing extra track... -human and No Leaf Clover

Let's think here for a second... What's the second highest selling album of all time behind Thriller? Back in black. I want to know where that is on here.

Yeah! Its number 1 to me. This is why Metallica is such a great band... There studio albums and live recordings are equally good.
One, Sad but true, master of puppets, enter sandman and of course nothing else matters are few great songs in this album.

I thought Enter Sandman was already good until I hear the version on this album.

108Metropolis, Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory - Dream Theater

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.

109All Eyez on Me - 2Pac

"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!

Amazing album. While I do think Illmatic is better, this album was an amazing album nonetheless. 2Pac made an album that is astounding in nearly every level.

116Blue - Joni Mitchell

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

117Electric Ladyland - Jimi Hendrix

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.

118Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel

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!
