I truly enjoy this album, blast it in the car, memorized the lyrics, but I need everyone to really take a step back for a second. Let me play devil's advocate (not my own feelings)... It's a progressive album, but does that make it one of the best? Anyone can record several unused/unheard-of instruments into a repeating melody and claim it is the modern standard in the evolution of music. So let's put DSOTM on the same level as every album that was not so "progressive", three to (maybe) five songs actually stand out. Band On The Run had the title track, Jet, Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five, and Let Me Roll It. Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-nerd had extraordinary hits like Free Bird, Simple Man, Tuesday's Gone, and Gimme Three Steps. Sales don't account for the greatness of an album, neither does the impact on the time. What makes an album truly the best is universal application, hit after hit after hit, and a little bit of everything. I'm not claiming that DSOTM isn't a long standing ...more - RilesLee

In my personal opinion of course, I think the wall is by far much better than dark side

I used to think that until I realized how awesome dark Side is. Wall tells an awesome story and is one of the best albums ever, but Dark Side encompasses the entire human existence. - epicness2099

It's OK but greatest album of all time? No!

72 The Bodyguard - Whitney Houston The Bodyguard - Whitney Houston
73 Invincible - Michael Jackson Invincible - Michael Jackson
74 Awakening - Jackie Evancho Awakening - Jackie Evancho
75 Pinkerton - Weezer Pinkerton - Weezer

El Scorcho only gooder song, way different from their first album, what a let down.

76 X - Ed Sheeran X - Ed Sheeran
77 Close to the Edge - Yes Close to the Edge - Yes

Yes is one of my all-time favorite bands. This album is frequently considered to be Yes' best album. Some even consider it to be the greatest progressive rock album ever. It is neither. Good but endlessly over-rated.

78 Rust in Peace - Megadeth Rust in Peace - Megadeth
79 Am - Arctic Monkeys Am - Arctic Monkeys
80 Red - Taylor Swift Red - Taylor Swift
