Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 7XW

121Amaryllis - Shinedown
122Electric 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.

123How to Save a Life - The Fray

The album through which The Fray burst onto the hit music scene.

124Modern Vampires of the City - Vampire Weekend
125Amnesiac - Radiohead
12621 - Adele

There has only ever been few albums that have made even the slightest impression on me, and even fewer that I liked every single song in the album. And, in my honest opinion, Adele's 21 surpasses all.

First, her voice. I don't know what people have against her, or what they think of her, but her voice is incredible. She brings good music back into the modern century- much better than this rapping stuff, anyways. Her voice is like the soul of you, vibrating every moment, and rushes through your body like a tsunami.

Her beat is perfect (Note: Just listen to Rumor Has It) and is almost as vibrating as her awesome voice. Her lyrics actually make you feel as if she felt that pain (she did) unlike those emotionless liars in music biz these days.

Her lyrics are catchy, hit you at the right note, and match up. What's important about "matching up"? Glad you asked. You actually have to rhyme and make the song match the title and emotion you're displaying- I know, shocker! ...more

I like her music her lyrics makes a lot of sense if you just listen to the words.

127X&Y - Coldplay

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 x

128Images and Words - Dream Theater

oh comon! who's above this? 30 seconds to mars? Christina Aguilera? Leona Lewis??? please! anyone who has listened to the likes of Under a Glass Moon, Pull Me Under, Metropolis Pt. 1; the Miracle and the sleeper or Take the Time (all amazingly off one album - this one) will know that this deserves to be higher! - thunder2221

It inspired all modern prog metal- arguably the most-played type of metal by all modern metal bands with a record deal. A perfectly put together album; perfect contrast with heavy, light and different emotions. Best album ever.

Go vote for Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory, it's currently number 426

129Science & Faith - The Script

This is one of the best albums ever. The best songs on this album would be: Exit Wounds because I love the Guitar at the end, You Won't Fell a Thing because the instrumental at the start is a great start to the album. I also love 3. Nothing because it was one of the first songs I knew by the band and I've always loved it. Finaly another one I've always loved "Science and Faith" - biddiebob99

130Dark Horse - Nickelback

Do me a favor, and, listen to some of the other albums on this list, such as the one two spots down from this. if you still like this, well, that's fine by me, but try some new albums - RecklessGreed

131A Thousand Suns - Linkin Park

This is the most hated album of the band, but it's the best. Just listen with good headphones, the lyrics are fantastic, the sound is innovative and complex. The conception of nuclear war is genius, listen songs like The Catalyst (my favorite of all the songs from all artists) Iridescent, Waiting For the End. Linkin Park fans unfortunately do not value this masterpiece, the best job of band. This deserves better placement, I vote for A Thousand Suns.

This NEEDs to be at the top. It's a smart album for once in music history. a smart BAND for once in music history - MaddSpazz

This a garbage album, one of the worst LP has done. Horrible songwriting, production, vocals, everything about this album is horrendous. - Satire

132Aenima - Tool

Almost flawless. Third Eye, H., Push it, Aenima, Eulogy are all perfect tracks. Impeccable vocals and drumming. And AWESOME riffs.

#70 cmon the 13 minute epic third eye, the greatness of all the songs
popularizing progressive metal
cmon - blaqksails92

So...
I'm only voting for this because it's the closest to the top Tool have got!
Brilliant album, but I'm very disappointed at 345th place.
I mean, come on. 345th?
I see Tool surrounded by Rise Against and Breaking Benjamin!
Come on Tool fans! Let us unite and get this to the top 100!

Should be in top 5

133Hunting High and Low - A-ha

Ground breaking album, evocative and pure class from vocals, song writing to melodies. Can put this album on now and drives you wild

I just like this album... Although it took me so long to find out how good it is... - Daisymorot

This album carried me through the teenage years. It helped me formed my views of adult life

Wow this album is full of pure melody. Morten's voice is like silk

134Bridge 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!

135The Eminem Show - Eminem

Want to get pumped up? Listen to the most amazing song on the album, 'Till I Collapse.
Want to laugh? Listen to Without Me.
Want to be grossed out? Listen to Drips.

WHAT? This is at 44! It deserves to be in top 5! This is the best album ever made! Hats off to king of rap.very meaningful songs.

This should definitely be more higher. This is 1/7 albums that had been certified Diamond selling over 10 million albums and it can't even make it in the Top 100. And with the Hit #1 Single Without Me make it a success. Songs like Without Me, Sing For The Moment, Cleaning Out My Closet, Till I Collapse, and Superman make it a success

Easily the best album, just about every track on this album is good

136Demon Days - Gorillaz

Gorillaz never fails to inspire and amaze me

One of the best albums I've ever heard

137Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin

This album may not be their best selling album, but it is certainly their best album by far! It marked a milestone for the band, being their most acoustic and bluesy album, it holds my 1st and fifth favorite songs, which are since I've been loving you and tangerine, this album is much like bb king, Stevie Ray Vaughan and An acoustic version of all dave matthews band made an album. I am not happy with the first choice, although it is a good album it is not the best, although one of the best selling albums. Let the underdog win, how popular doesn't mean how good, how is there no zeppelin?

This is ranked below nickelback? Whislt not led zeps best album, the fact that it's this low is a travesty

138Aja - Steely Dan

Music is at the very moment you listen after the music ends it evokes only a personnel thought no one else except liberals pretend to care long live boy bare

The classiest album to ever be made. The type of music businessmen listen to while smoking a cigarette, drinking wine and socialising in a dark room whilst playing poker.

Steely Dan's lyricism shows well throughout the album, adding touches of irony all over the place. The album excels as jazz fusion, even as refined as it is. This album may not have the emotions of a jazz album, but it is damn elegant. - Evafag

139Queen II - Queen

Father to Son, White Queen, Ogre Battle, The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke, The March of the Black Queen, Seven Seas of Rhye, need I say more?
