The Top TenXW

1Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin

Hands down no contest. This indestructible album called Led Zeppelin IV, ZOSO, The Runes Album, The Four Symbols Album and The No Name Album... Is arguably the greatest Rock Album Ever Recorded. Power of Zeppelin? It sold 23 million copies in the States alone with absolutely no print on the cover jacket. None.

Best album of the decade - not just 1971!

2Master of Reality - Black Sabbath

I'm pretty sure "Children of the Grave" is the first Metallica song. And it wasn't even by Metallica, it was by the greatest metal band to grace the earth Black Sabbath!

My favorite children of the grave sweet leaf and into the void is ausome
