282 Atlas: Space 1 - Sleeping at Last
283 Adema - Adema
284 The Dance - Fleetwood Mac
285 Live at Wembley 86 - Queen V 1 Comment
286 Sonic Firestorm - Dragonforce
287 Up! - Shania Twain
288 At the Foot of My Rival - The New Amsterdams
289 Scripted - Icon for Hire
290 Z - My Morning Jacket
291 Into A Secret Land - Sandra
292 Violator - Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode was and is one of the most influential bands of all time, and with this album they reached their highest peak. Dave Gahan sang Personal Jesus like lost in the desert of his own consciousness, like a faithless plea of salvation and forgiveness, so deliciously alien, yet so familiar, that you felt the lyric of Martin L. Gore penetrating your very soul, I could go deeper and deeper on every song, as they're as good as Jesus, but there's a lack of space and time, so I'll just close by saying: Listen to it, you won't regret it.

Simply the best. That's all there's to say. Listen to it and you won't regret it. Ever

293 Hysteria - Def Leppard

The Beatles, Stones, the Who, Zeppelin, and Floyd albums deserve their respective places on this list because of their great song writing and backing music. They all stand alone but on the next level a band like definitely Leppard leads the charge. They had several great albums, led by Hysteria, an album that has been underrated due to it's connection to the hair band era. It had six hit singles and the fillers were nearly as good. How many albums out there can you say that about? This should be at least a top 75 album.

One of the Staples of 80's Rock. Def Leppard Blew down the doors in 87 with this album. For a while they were the biggest band in the world.

Definitely deserves top 10.

151? REALLY I'm shocked they are amazing ­čśŹ xx

294 Legend - Bob Marley

I love this album, but compilations have always an obvious advantage, picking the artist's best songs. Should be in separate list 'Best Compilations'.

Why is a Hollywood Unread album higher? - 445956

295 British Steel - Judas Priest

What?!?!?! One of the greatest albums in history is 280?!

296 Absolution - Muse

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

Best album ever by Muse and until I'm convinced otherwise, the best album ever. Every single song on this album sounds fantastic from Apocalyse Please to Fury (the bonus track).

297 Sign 'O' the Times - Prince

Sign O The Times, you Got The Look, Adore, Housequake, If I Was Your Girlfriend, Hot Thing, I Could Never Take The Place of Your Man, Strange Relationship, The Cross. Some of the best of Prince

298 Out of the Blue - Electric Light Orchestra

A revelation when it was first released, concerto for a rainy day stills sends shivers down my spine, nearly thirty years on

Deserves in top 25 at least

Just amazing xx

Good music!

299 Get Rich or Die Tryin' - 50 Cent

Released for only a few years ago and is already a classic!

One of the best albums I've ever heard. It is 8x platinum and one of the best rap albums. Singles Like In the Club make it a success. Other songs like : 21 Questions, P.I.M.P, Many Men, Patiently Waiting, And What up gangsta are great
