The Top Ten

1 Blonde on Blonde - Bob Dylan - 1966

I disagree. Pet Sounds was better. - Undistinguished

True. There was also Fresh Cream, Revolver, Buffalo Springfield and Aftermath - Undistinguished

2 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd - 1975

This definitely was! - allamassal

3 Ride the Lightning - Metallica - 1984

Eh, Defenders Of The Faith by Judas Priest is actually my favorite from this year but this is close.

This list is very old. If I were to choose again, I would probably go with Purple Rain, honestly. - Sop

One of my all time favorite albums. - Pony

Look at my profile. - spiritofhiphop

4 Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - The Smashing Pumpkins - 1995

A close tie would be (What's the story? ) Morning Glory & Jagged Little Pills. There's also Symbolic - Undistinguished

Definitely this album. I love Green Day's Insomniac, but this took the cake. - Pony

5 Kid A - Radiohead - 2000

I love this album. For me I would have to go with Machina I and II by The Smashing Pumpkins. - Pony

6 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West - 2010

Definitely. Followed by Recovery and Plastic Beach - Undistinguished

7 The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground - 1967
8 The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars - David Bowie - 1972

Exile on Main Street is a close call but yeah this one was the best - Undistinguished

9 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden - 1982

This one was the best but my favorite was Combat Rock - Undistinguished

10 Elton John - Elton John - 1970

I got to say why am I the enemy of your vision from your own orbs(eyes)? I'll change soon you know in 4/10/18 that's the exact moment I'll cherish this orb of freedom- Kevinsidis

The Contenders

11 The Lonesome Crowded West - Modest Mouse - 1997

WOULD HAVE. If not for OK Computer - the greatest alternative masterpiece. - Undistinguished

12 Hopeless Fountain Kingdom - Halsey - 2017

I agree with this one. The songs on this album are amazing for the most part! - allamassal

13 Dirt - Alice in Chains - 1992
14 Behold and See - Ultimate Spinach - 1968
15 The White Album - The Beatles - 1968
16 A Hard Days Night - The Beatles - 1964
17 Dookie - Green Day - 1994
18 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John - 1973
19 Divide - Ed Sheeran - 2017

Although I like Perfect and Castle On The Hill, I don't really agree with this one, partly because Shape of You was just another typical mainstream pop song. - allamassal

20 Back in Black - AC/DC
21 The Book of Souls - Iron Maiden - 2015
