Albums You Would Add to Rolling Stone's Top 500 Albums of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Animals - Pink Floyd V 1 Comment
2 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden
3 Machine Head - Deep Purple
4 Ride the Lighting - Metallica
5 In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson

I can't believe they left out this... maybe only 5 song, but all of 5 songs are 10/10, hard to play songs. Rolling Stone Sucks... - somekindofaguy

This definitely deserved it along with other progressive rock bands. - Powerfultekin

It should be 8th place on the rolling stone list. - SammySpore

6 In Rock - Deep Purple
7 At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian
8 Reckless - Bryan Adams

I adore this album - definitely one of the greatest ever! Critics always forget about this masterpiece while making their polls and charts - Irina2932

Great album all the way through, I usually have to skip a song or two on an album but with this one I don't, every single song is great

9 Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin

This album definitely deserved to be on the list, with great key songs like: Since I've Been Loving You, Tangerine, and Immigrant Song. I don't understand how it didn't make the list. - Powerfultekin

10 True Blue - Madonna

When it comes to name Madonna's best albums, they always bring "Like A Prayer" and "Ray of Light". Both albums are fantastic but "True Blue" is even better. It gave us 'La Isla Bonita', 'Papa Don't Preach', 'Live to Tell' and 'Open Your Heart' - Irina2932

The Contenders

11 Reign in Blood - Slayer
12 The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis

This album is real journey to another world - very deep, emotional and so adventurous - Irina2932

It's a shame that there are almost no prog albums on the list (except jethro tull and Pink Floyd)

13 Homogenic - Bjork

"Post" received a credit but what about this masterpiece? - Irina2932

14 I'm Your Baby Tonight - Whitney Houston

I would give everything to this melodious album. The title track, "All the Man That I Need", "Miracle", "My Name Is Not Susan" and "I Belong to You" were fantastic singles - Irina2932

15 Pump - Aerosmith

They gave credits to Toys In the Attic and Rocks but this one is no less impressive. "Janie's Got a Gun", "Love in an Elevator", "What It Takes", "F.I.N.E. ", "The Other Side", "Monkey on My Back" were released as singles - Irina2932

16 Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian
17 Selling England by the Pound - Genesis
18 Heaven On Earth - Belinda Carlisle

One of the greatest albums in pop industry. Singles "Heaven Is a Place on Earth", "Circle in the Sand" and "I Get Weak" were/are memorable - Irina2932

19 Painkiller - Judas Priest
20 Kick - INXS

6 guys outta AUSTRALIA take over the world... Isn't that epic enough?

This is the Album that made them world famous.
