Top 10 Albums that Aren't as Overrated as Some People Think

The Top Ten

1 The Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

This album deserves all the praise it gets - christangrant

2 Abbey Road - The Beatles

The best thing to come from pop music/rock music. Don't listen to people who tell you it's too slow, or a mess. Despite what people will tell you, it's far more consistent in quality and production than Sgt. Pepper.
