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.

Totally agree. Every song stellar. Still holds up. A star.

2Agents of Fortune

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.

3Blue Oyster Cult

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 have

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

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.

7On Your Feet Or On Your Knees

The best live album by anyone, EVER!

8Cultosaurus Erectus

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.

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.

10Club 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.

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

The Contenders


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