Top 10 Classic Albums of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Illmatic - Nas

Dude, everything in the top 10 does not have to be rock, but it should not be utter garbage like this.

An abomination that this is ahead of Abbey Road and Revolver.

Dude Everything In The Top 10 Shouldn't Just Be Rock. There Are Phenomenal Albums In All Genres Of Music.

Well Not ALL. But You Get The Idea - 12cc

22After the Gold Rush - Neil Young

Come on, who added all these great albums? you're the reason why this list in its currrent state is 100 times better than the best album list. thank you so much - RecklessGreed

23Kind of Blue - Miles Davis
24Rubber Soul - The BeatlesV2 Comments
25Strangers In the Night - Frank Sinatra

Usually people don't pay any attention to franks albums. They always go after his singles and that stuff. And this album is really underrated. Great vocals, music and the order of the tracks makes it perfect.
R.I.P Frank Sinatra

26Electric Ladyland - Jimi Hendrix Experience
27Revolver - The Beatles
28Deja Vu - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
29Are You Experienced? - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

I Can't Belive This Is 21 Below Many Album that are inferior to the complexity and magnificence of this. For its time it was incredibly unique (1967).The production of this album is incredible, the lyrics are phenomenal and that brings me to the music which is untouchable. This album influenced many of the bands who are now legends like Metallica, Led Zeppelin, The Sex Pistols And Many More. So in terms of classic there isn't an album more deserving of the top spot that "Are You Experienced"

How the hell are Kid A, Illmatic and straight outta Compton higher than are you experienced?

Rolling Stone magazine ranked this album 15th on their greatest albums of all time list.

4 of the songs on it are in their 500 greatest songs of all time list. what other album has been so critical acclaimed? In my opinion the only albums that can even come close to are you experienced are "the dark side of the moon", "Led Zeppelin IV" and "Sgt peppers lonely hearts club band". and by the way "pet sounds" is way too overrated to be in the top 10.

30Everybody Knows This is Nowhere - Neil Young & Crazy Horse
31The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem
32The White Album - The Beatles

Why is the Beatles best album below Illmatic, The velvet underground and nico, kid A and straight outta Compton. This is one of the greatest albums of all time.this album was one of the last and many people agree that this is the greatest album by the Beatles.

33Blonde On Blonde - Bob Dylan

Why is this way down here? Its simple, the average voter at top tens is 12-14 years old, has never heard of Bob Dylan, and votes in lockstep with whatever their friends at middle school think is cool. They think that Blonde on Blonde is a girl group like Little Mix.

What's wrong with you people? 25 are you kidding me? "Blonde On Blonde" is the definition of classic. Seriously all the songs are flawless and nothing, but nothing can even come close to giving you the feeling that blonde on blonde does. deserves to be at least in the top 10

34Woodstock [Original Soundtrack] - Various Artists
35Forever Changes - Love
36Breakfast In America - Supertramp
37West Side Story [Original Soundtrack] - Various Artists
38Harvest - Neil Young
39Paranoid - Black Sabbath
40Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin

What's This Even Doing Here. It's Garbage Compared To Led Zeppelin's Other Stuff

This Album is seriously underrated.I think it's Led Zeppelins 2nd Best album (after Led Zeppelin IV of course) although many might say Led Zeppelin III, Led Zeppelin II and Physical Graffiti Are Better. This album is what made Led Zeppelin. Songs Like "Communication Breakdown", "Good Times Bad Times", "Dazed And Confusedand" and "Black Mountain Side" have left nothing but good memories for Led Zeppelin fans. Led Zeppelin FOREVER.
