269 The Odyssey - Symphony X
270 Hunting High and Low - A-ha

Ground breaking album, evocative and pure class from vocals, song writing to melodies. Can put this album on now and drives you wild

271 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]

272 Boston - Boston

Without doubt, the GREATEST album ever recorded! This album was released when I was about 7 and turned me on to rock & roll. If you listen to any rock radio station anywhere in the country for 24 hours, you will hear every song off this album every day. What other album can make that claim? None. I have never heard anyone say they are sick of hearing it, almost 40 years after it was released! This album is so great, it actually screwed the band. They made the greatest album ever for their debut. How do you top that? You don't. I doubt anyone ever will.

The reason it isn't higher on the list is because too many people are partial to albums that inspired or influenced a generation, made a statement, changed music or sold the most copies or have been personal favorites...all the reasons that people want to rank Nirvana's Nevermind at #1...none of which means that is necessarily a great album. Boston and Don't Look Back, two of my all time favorites but I don't know if everyone else agrees with that. - frankmartin

Phenomenal album, every song a gem. Amazing vocals and harmonized guitars. Unfortunately, overplayed on classic rock stations for decades. Still doesn't change the fact it's an amazing album.

Awesome Perfection!

274 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).

This album is better than A Night at the Opera. There I said it.

275 Slipknot - Slipknot

their self titled album is there best so far, even though it was there first

You must be kidding. I understand everybody has different tastes, but this? It's my favourite album ever, even over Back in Black, Ride the Lightning, The Subliminal Verses. Every single song is a masterpiece, there are no bad songs. Eyeless, No Life, Scissors, Wait and Bleed, (sic), Surfacing, Prosthetics, Spit it Out.
It's a different sound never seen before and I have to say I f***ing love it.


276 Astral Weeks - Van Morrison

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

277 Melophobia - Cage the Elephant

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

278 Marshall Mathers LP 2 - Eminem

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

279 Chronic: 2001 - Dr Dre

My brother looks like Eminem and loves forgot about dre

Best album of all time

280 Use Your Illusion II - Guns N' Roses

See the comments for Use Your Illusion I...rockin' albums, far and away not given enough credit in "best album" polls.
