Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 13

241 Avalon - Roxy Music
242 The Odyssey - Symphony X
243 Dirt - Alice In Chains

In terms of sheer heaviness, there aren't many album I have heard that are darker, moodier, heavier, and more emotional than this. Every song is a masterpiece. Key tracks: Rooster, Down In a Hole, Would? , Them Bones, Rain When I Die

Arguably the most influential rock band of the 90's. Every song sang by Layne Staley is a thing of beauty.

Viewing the album as a whole, I actually think Dirt is better than most of the Nirvana albums.

In my opinion, Alice in Chains are more musically influential then Nirvana, how many bands take Nirvanas sound and just add a slightly different vocalist, none that I can name, but Alice in Chains has Godsmack, KoRn, and 75% of 2000s metal bands.

244 City of Evil - Avenged Sevenfold

Has some of my favourite songs from my favourite band with some of the best drumming and guitar they've played a7x foREVer

Every song on this album is enough for the top spot. It has been extremely underrated by this poll, it seems no one has properly functioning ears.

This album almost make me like a beast! This album just like the symbol of "GO TO DEATH"

I'm not into Pink Floyd, it's good, I just don't like it, this is my favorite band ever. - EliHbk

245 I Am...Sasha Fierce - Beyonce

Beyonce sasha fierce album is the album that really made her become the celebrity she is today that album and the single ladies put a ring on it music video made her a international superstar today she is a triple threat she set the bar so high no other female artist can't compete with her and I think it will be that way for awhile especially she is a beautiful woman with sexy great Dance moves.

Study show that reading the comments on a Beyonce/Rihanna/Justin Bieber thread can give you brain cancer.

This album is a masterpiece, and it sickens me that it is 224th.

Top of the wold album. You have single ladies, halo, if I were a boy, ego, diva, videophone, broken hearted girl etc. What else do you expect from beyonce good voice, best dance move, a happy family, and best selling album of all time, she got to get a lot of haters ha ha ha[the woman with everything]

246 Mars - Gackt

The best album of all! Even though every album of Gackt is absolutely awesome. His voice is so full of emotions that you will get gosebumps everytime you here him sing... Also his variety of songs is incredible wide... his ballads are as wonderful as his rock songs.

This is a great gackt album... I love it... 'cause he is a great singer... I love him so much, he always moves us with his songs, in particular with this album

Amaing album! I will never get tired of gackts music or x Japans music and l'arc en ciel! ~ they know real music!

248 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.

249 Astral Weeks - Van Morrison

A stunning album which deserves a much higher ranking.It's my number 1.

250 Sheer Heart Attack - Queen

An album that preceeded the greatest band in the world's greatest album, a night at the opera. This album encompasses every genre that rock and roll truly is. "Stone Cold Crazy" has gotta be the greatest metal song ever written, and it was the first of its time. Queen's musical genious and arena rock domination started with this classic album.

Great from beginning to end. No duds as there are on other Queen albums (even though one admires taking chances).

252 Melophobia - Cage the Elephant

Cage the Elephant's third studio album is a surprisingly delightful display of subtle, layered instrumentation and tasteful homage.

253 Chronic: 2001 - Dr Dre

My brother looks like Eminem and loves forgot about dre

Best album of all time

254 Sounding The Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold
255 Marshall Mathers LP 2 - Eminem

This album is not that good. How this is above so many classic albums blows me away

256 The Glow, Pt. 2 - The Microphones
257 How to Save a Life - The Fray

The album through which The Fray burst onto the hit music scene.

258 Late Registration - Kanye West

Gold Digger enough said

Great album

259 The Silent Force - Within Temptation
260 Kaleidoscope - Siouxsie & the Banshees

Their debut-album 'The Scream' is far better and it's not even mentioned in the entire list.

Love this album especially good for stargazing
