Top Ten Classic Rock Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Get Your Wings - Aerosmith

This album should be up in the top twenty! Who ever made this list doesn't have a clue

102Ted Nugent - Ted Nugent
103Rocks - Aerosmith
104Signals - Rush
105Nightingales and Bombers - Manfred Mann's Earth Band
106At the Sound of the Bell - Pavlov's Dog

If you never heard of Pavlov's Dog it is time and worth it to listen to one of the best progressive 70's rock music. Both "Pampered Menial" and "At The Sound Of The Bell" albums are in my favorite collection.

107Tales of Mystery and Imagination - Alan Parsons Project
108Ecology - Rare Earth
109Learning to Crawl - Pretenders

Great guitar work, great writing - Monster.

1105150 - Van Halen
111The River - Bruce Springsteen
112The Last Waltz - The Band (& Friends)
113Daydream Nation - Sonic Youth
114Strange Days - The Doors

When the Music is Over is amazing. Great album.

115Bridge of Sighs - Robin Trower

Often forgotten or simply seen as a Hendrix clone Robin Trower is oh so much more than that.
Bridge of Sighs is one of my favourite rock albums and the synergy between the guitar, bass and drums are perfectly complimented by the husky yet powerful voice of the late James Dewar.
If played on vinyl this recording by one of the Great Power Trios works almost perfectly; grab a copy, give it a listen and enjoy this underrated album.

116Blackout - Scorpions

An all time classic!

All from the songs to the cover is is genius.

Blackout, No one like you, Dynamite, When the smoke is going down.. so many amazing songs

117Let There Be Rock - AC/DC
118High Voltage - AC/DC
119Straight Shooter - Bad Company
120Live at Leeds - The Who

Although the song "magic bus" seams to go on for 20 minutes, this is one of the best live albums of all time in my taste.

Best live album ever. The Who at the top of their game
