Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 11

201 The Resistance - Muse The Resistance - Muse

I don't think this album is so famous as it is good. Every song has an unimaginable amount of effort put into it, and every track has a distinct sound. A phenomenal mix of rock, metal, and even orchestra. For a relatively recent album, too, this is a stunning work of art from beginning to end. Muse delivers on their best whole album by far..

204 Piece of Mind - Iron Maiden Piece of Mind - Iron Maiden

208 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel 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.

This album should be in every collection; because it is great!

209 Anastacia - Anastacia Anastacia - Anastacia

Baby you're the greatest and this album is fantastic!

It's the best album ever heard, great sprock and a an unique voice. Without any doubt it is the greatest album ever released. - ashok

210 Hotel California - Eagles Hotel California - Eagles

213 what's this garbage this is one of the most iconic albums of the 70s this is way better than more than half the albums above it

I'm sorry this is a joke right? Hotel California is one of the greatest albums of all time and it's at 918.

To me, this album, alongside Abbey Road, are the two greatest albums of all time. This needs to be higher

Best album ever.

211 Siamese Dream - The Smashing Pumpkins Siamese Dream - The Smashing Pumpkins

Definitely one of my favorites, along with nevermind. Billy sings with such emotion and this album has such personal song with heaps of meaning. I really love the smashing pumpkins and this is their best album by far.

A true masterpiece of Billy Corgan and crews amazing guitar riffs and powerful drumming styles.

An absolute masterpiece, really underrated, just as good as Nevermind in my humble opinion

212 The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails 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.

213 All Hope is Gone - Slipknot All Hope is Gone - Slipknot

So I scrolled all this time and there it is

214 The Queen Is Dead - The Smiths The Queen Is Dead - The Smiths

What is wrong with you people this album is a masterpiece! I saw more than one Linkin Park albums on here - what we have here on this sight is a bunch of Eminem Linkin Park Michael Jackson Pink Floyd Green Day butt kissers!

215 The Massacre - 50 Cent The Massacre - 50 Cent

One of the best 5O cent albums. Matter of fact on of the best in rap history. Hit single Candy Shop is considered the second best song in the 2000's behind Eminem's hit single Lose Yourself. Candy Shop isn't the only great song on The Massacre. Songs like : Candy Shop, Just A Lil Bit, Disco Inferno, Piggy Bank and Definitely Hate It Or Love It make the album a success

Candy shop and 21 questions best songs ever

216 Reasonable Doubt - Jay-Z Reasonable Doubt - Jay-Z

Easily one of the best rap albums EVER made and it was his first which is even more amazing. Absolutely flawless flow, production and just everything. Love every song on it, listen to it if you like rap

Definitely one of the essential hip hop albums of all time. Easily Jay's best record, that cemented his place as one of the greatest. A flawless masterpiece from top to bottom filled with classics. - robertoantonioortuso

You gotta give jigga some props for this classic

217 30 Seconds to Mars - 30 Seconds to Mars 30 Seconds to Mars - 30 Seconds to Mars
218 Absolution - Muse Absolution - Muse

Time is Running Out, Hysteria, Stockholm Syndrome, Sing for Absolution, Fury, and Bitterflies and Hurricanes - they're just my favourites. - LaurenLauren

219 The Slim Shady LP - Eminem 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.
