Greatest Blue Oyster Cult Albums

The Top TenXW

1Secret Treaties

Brilliant, only knew "don't fear the reaper" before buying and stood in shop with a choice; "secret treaties" or the "best of", I took a gamble as I prefer albums over compilations and very happy with my decision! - DeadAsian

Flaming Telepaths, Astronomy... Some of their best songs ever! - irish400

Best lyrics as well. Try to compete with ME262. This album is incredible.

I agree completely. Not a bad song here.

2Agents of Fortune

This is the only Blue Öyster cult album that I like all the songs on. Most of the other albums have one or two great songs, but on this one, almost all of the songs are great, especially (Don't Fear) The Reaper, Debbie Denise, and Morning Final. - Raa396

This is their best album, they leave the "glam" and metal, and creates a beautiful soft-rock album. The only album I really like by BÖC, still there are some good pieces here and there on other albums.

I have never gotten tired of listening to this album. The music is so original I constantly find myself being in the mood to listen to one song or another, never the same one over and over again.

Agents of Fortune represents the band at their best, most creative and most versatile. It's one of the great albums of the 1970s.

3Blue Oyster Cult

A very complete first album with all listenable cuts. Some really good cuts and excellent guitar playing.

Their best, hands down.

4Tyranny & Mutation

The first three tracks are a bit weak, but the rest of the album is stellar. Fire of Unknown Origin is a bit more consistent and has a better sound, but the high points of Tyranny and Mutation are higher, and it rocks in a way that their later albums don't.

5Fire of Unknown Origin

This album put BÖC in another level. Burning for you, is by far the best song ever played in rock & roll history. Awesome, magic, alien, exquisite!

An unbelievable catchy trip into a world of fantasy. Highly recomendable!

Fire of Unknown Origen is awesome, unique tunes, magical: Burning for you is the best rock song ever played.

8Cultosaurus Erectus

Some great BOC song writing and musicianship

This album has THE best collection of songs by B. O. C. ever. - fireinside96

A fun album with some great hooks.

9Some Enchanted Evening

Great version of Don't Fear The Reaper amongst some other Cult classics. Still stands up well as a fine live album.


Underrated and overlooked. In the, The Vigil, The Great Sun Jester, the title track.

The Contenders

11Club Ninja

White flags, spy in the house of the night, dancin in the ruins, madness to method are great songs that deserve more credit and of course there is perfect water this song is legendary just hear it you will know why.

13Heaven Forbid

Simply awesome, not a bad track on it
