Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 8XW

141Imagine - John Lennon

Generally, most known for the title-track, but it contains some other brilliant songs, like the McCartney-attacking 'How do you sleep? ' and 'Gimme some truth', 'Oh Yoko', one of the most beautiful love songs ever, the original 'Jealous Guy' and the lyrically excellent 'Crippled Inside'. Best Lennon-album!

Imagine is the only great song on this album

#119? What? Why this is just sad seeing nickleback higher than this is just disgusting

142A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars

Every single album 30 Seconds to Mars ever made is beautiful, fascinating and soul touching in its own way, but A Beautiful Lie is definitely one of the best albums I ever listened to in my whole life. It was life changing and inspiring (?! ) in one way. I love every single song inside. That's why it should be on top

It actually deals with issues that are surrounding the world right now. While some albums on here are dealing with similar issues, this one is the best by far. First of all the music is quite dark, as to create the somber mood. This album literally made me question life itself and think of my measly life in comparison to the universe. This might sound pretty sad for me, it was actually a good experience, because it helped me decide what to do with my life and how I will leave my legacy. Deserves at least one listen.

Great voices, great instrument playing, great songs, great performances, great acoustic versions, great shows, great unplugged versions, the boys are great and their music too!

Please please please! 30 seconds to mars only number 1!

145Dookie - Green Day

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 20

146Good Kid M.A.A. D City - Kendrick Lamar

One of the top story tellers in the history of rap

147Untrue - Burial

This album is better than the 100 above it...

148The Stranger - Billy Joel

I'm glad to see this in the top 200. Pop music doesn't get much better. - PetSounds

How could this be so low? It could be a greatest hits album!

149Riot! - Paramore
150Gorilla Manor - Local Natives
151Sounding The Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold
152Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble

Oh. My. Lord. How I wish I grew up in the place he did, just for that simple inspiration to play as good as he does. My favourite guitarist of all time. - mangomorse

153Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys

The perfect indie-rock album. punk and garage rock influenced. it came at a time where indie garage rock was very popular, but this is the best one out of all of them, due the the great energetic instruments and the insanely good writing by alex turner

korn is by the biggest metal act in music, they started the way for so many bands, korn by far has my vote for best band ever

156Like a Prayer - Madonna

Classic album from classic Madonna. Hits "Like A Prayer", "Express Yourself" and "Cherish" are still very important - Irina2932

Madonna's first album that earned an iconic status! Don't get me wrong, "Like a Virgin" (1984) and "True Blue" (1986) are fantastic but this album and its singles made history in 1989! Thank you Madonna!

Great mix of pop hits and ballads! I personally love Dear Jessie and Oh Father.

157Into A Secret Land - Sandra
158Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold

By Far the best album ever made every song on this album is perfection and it also has one of the best songs ever made on it, Afterlife. - Fabio-Fabulous-of-swag-town

Just amazing can't believe it isn't in the top 10.

159Dirt - Alice In Chains

In terms of sheer heaviness, there aren't many album I have heard that are darker, moodier, heavier, and more emotional than this. Every song is a masterpiece. Key tracks: Rooster, Down In a Hole, Would? , Them Bones, Rain When I Die

Arguably the most influential rock band of the 90's. Every song sang by Layne Staley is a thing of beauty.

Viewing the album as a whole, I actually think Dirt is better than most of the Nirvana albums.

Best grunge album ever made. Why is it 100? This album is way better than any nirvana album.

160Rust Never Sleeps - Neil Young

This is more than just soulful but a real deep feeling work of art!

"The King is gone, but he's not forgotten, this is the story of Johnny Rotten". And 'Thrasher' has some of the most beautiful lyrics ever.
