Greatest Blue Oyster Cult Albums
The Top Ten
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.
Totally agree. Every song stellar. Still holds up. A star.V 2 Comments
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.
My favorite by the band because it shows off their versatility so well. This was the first BÖC collection of songs that showed what a bunch of great writers they could all be by contributing such a diverse amount of material. Equally rocking as it is subtle, to my mind, this strikes the perfect balance.V 1 Comment
A very complete first album with all listenable cuts. Some really good cuts and excellent guitar playing.
I would choose this and Cultusarus Erectus as the Best Covers they haveV 1 Comment
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.
An unbelievable catchy trip into a world of fantasy. Highly recomendable!
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!
Fire of Unknown Origen is awesome, unique tunes, magical: Burning for you is the best rock song ever played.
This and Cultosaurus Erectus were the two albums that had the best production among the early albums. Also the two that had the best songs, overall. Meh I guess Secret Treaties was decent too, but the production does not compare. Curse Of The Hidden Mirror is a great album and so too, Heaven Forbid. Club Ninja and Mirrors were also underrated.V 1 Comment
The best live album by anyone, EVER!
Some great BOC song writing and musicianship
This album has THE best collection of songs by B. O. C. ever. - fireinside96
I think this is the Best Album Cover they have
A fun album with some great hooks.
Great version of Don't Fear The Reaper amongst some other Cult classics. Still stands up well as a fine live album.
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.
It contains more dreamy, minor key songs that are the trademark of the 80s. Definite shift from the rock and roll but awesome
Love this album,white flags, perfect water and best of all when the war comes- most underrated album ever
Underrated and overlooked. In the, The Vigil, The Great Sun Jester, the title track.V 1 Comment
