Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Strangeways Here We Come - The Smiths
182 Lightbulb Sun - Porcupine Tree
183 Trout Mask Replica - Captain Beefheart
184 Colors - Between the Buried and Me
185 Outsideinside - Blue Cheer
186 Grace - Jeff Buckley

I think this album is incredible. I especially like the song "So Real"

Truly moving

I remember the first time I listened to this album! Loved it and immediately went and bought the cd. Awesome! One of my all time favorites.

187 The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails

Beautiful, complex and honest. Trent Reznor's best and most tragic work. Not the right sound to resonate with the masses but just right for the disenfranchised or depressed. Must have listened to it 100 times by now and still in complete awe. Musically it's brilliantly layered and lyrically it's cathartic. Most importantly the coherence of the album makes its concept work all the better, allowing the listener to identify with the protagonist and follow him on his decent into nihilism and suicide. If you haven't listened to this album please do! You may find you love it even more than me.

This brought them to success. Greatest metal album of all time.

I think from a musical and a technical standpoint it is extraordinary but the lyrics can truely resonate with people in their darkest times.

188 Curtain Call: The Hits - Eminem

Has all the best Eminem songs from the previous albums plus 3 new ones, one of them a masterpiece. But I really think this album is underrated '~'

189 Born In the U.S.A. - Bruce Springsteen

How can this album be so low on this list? I didn't see it in the top 40 and said to myself ", they forgot the Boss?!? " Then, I made a quick search and I saw that it was even worse... It was ranked 169th...
How can I say that? Where to begin? Well, first there are the lyrics... These are songs whose lyrics have actual meaning, talking about life, war, love... and then the music fits perfectly all the lyrics! You can't really understand this if you don't give it a try! Do it, and you will understand there is definitely something wrong with this list!
Now, if you are only interested in numbers, this album sold worldwide more than 30million copies. 7 of its songs were in the top 10 of the charts, which puts this album right behind Thriller...
Finally, guys, seriously, vote for it!

One of the all time BEST!

How on Earth is nicklebeck if front of this MASTERPIECE!

190 Aqualung - Jethro Tull

The bass line and guitar solo in Aqualung are just sick! Listen to the progression and structure of the riffs and be amazed. Great moment in recorded rock history. Martin Barre even ripped through that solo while Jimmy Page had walked into the studio and was watching! That's balls!

, what an amazing album. Ian Anderson is a genius composer/flutist/acoustic guitarist and everyone else in Tull is a virtuoso. Beside the classic Aqualung, there's Locomotive Breath, Hymn 43, Cross-Eyed Mary -- all fantastic rock tunes. The quieter tunes are incredible, too. Needs to be in Top 50 all-time albums.

Give me a break! 321? Who's ranking these? One of the best!

The classic. It stands completely alone.

191 The Slim Shady LP - Eminem

Best album by best artist.. Eminem shows his real emotions and struggles when he was still young and poor and divorced. The new Eminem is fake.

Bad Meets Evil probably in my opinion one of the best songs ever made. What is this list with SL LP 624th that's just ridicules. I admit that this LP is short but with lyrical content its probably better than anything else on this list.

This is what we call epic masterpiece. - AlphaQ

This Album is one spot behind Encore, >:(

192 Symbolic - Death
193 Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - Nicki Minaj

Nicki is the queen of rap. She's iconic. This is not my favorite, it's The Pinkprint, but this is iconic as well.

Just a good album

Meh. Not really...2/5 - AlphaQ

THE BEST

194 2014 Forest Hills Drive - J. Cole

Great album about his childhood

195 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel

Every single song on this album could have been released as a single and I would buy it, this album is my all time favourite and it pains me to see it not even brake into the top 100 let alone not into the topten where it belongs, Simon and Garfunkel just might be the greatest duet ever, in my opinion greatest artist over all, the fact that I myself am 17 (posted in 2015) and idlize them so many years after they were creating music is a testament to there brilliance, if you haven't listened to this album I can't suggest it enough, every single song is excellent, bridge over troubled water, only living boy in New York, the boxer, baby driver, el condor pasa, cecelia... I could just list every song but that's just how fantastic this album is, even there live cover of bye bye love is fantastic, seriously just check it out and you'll understand why I love it so much

There really isn't a weak track. From the tranquility of "So Long, Frank Lloyd Right" to the raucousness of "Cecilia", it's flawless. - PetSounds

Many of the songs on this album were released as singles and very known and played but a real hidden gem on this album is 'The Only Living Boy In New York', quite beautiful.

What the?

Why "Pet Sounds" should be higher, "Appetite For Destruction" lower, and "OK Computer" still.
