Best Albums of All Time
The Contenders: Page 16
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
Well this is just bull. I remember seeing this at 140 about 2 months ago and thought it would be higher by now but 349?! This is the album that invented progressive rock. I would give this top 20. Not to mention it's very unique album artwork. Epitaph and the title track are both brilliant songs, along with all the other songs. Mooching inventing ambient music and 21st Century Schizoid man is just badass. Amazing album, definitely vote this up.
Along with 'The Doors', this is one of the finest debut albums ever made, and the benchmark for all subsequent Prog Rock music. Way ahead of it's time, totally innovative, Pete Townsend allegedly referred to this album as 'an uncanny masterpiece'. Should be much much higher, they don't come better.
Like honestly this is where a website that is voted publicly can go wrong. This is one of the greatest albums EVER CREATED it invented progressive rock and ambient music. Last time I saw it at 129 and I was pissed off but 335? man people are stupid.
I can't believe that this album is 311. That is ridiculous. I understand it's old, and I understand that most people are just here to vote for their favorite album and some band they've never heard of at 311 is not going to get their vote, but OPEN YOUR EYES HERE PEOPLE, and listen to this album. It covers such a wide variety of genres with such grace, and vocal (as well as lyrical) depth.
This is the best album of the band that was hailed by Rush and Pink Floyd as some of their main inspiration. King Crimson ushered in a whole new section of the musical era of the early 70's and 80's. They, plus iron butterfly, were some of the first to do what they did, and Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis and Jethro Tull followed suit.
In this album, they incorporate INSANELY FAST tempos with improvisation bliss as well as eargasmic ballads. It's awesome.
Without a doubt the greatest album ever everything a good album needs is here just an amazing emotional journey through amazement and wow I cannot say anymore just amazing.
This album is why people will still know the name Billy Corgan in 100 years.
They don't even know his name now. He isn't a household name. People remember the names when the band is named after someone in the band. They had some cool songs but no one will remember this band unless they go looking for it. - frankmartin
Breathtaking. There are none other like this. Invokes every emotion and embraces beauty throughout.
Why did this album rank so low it's one of the greatest albums of the 1990s it should at least be in the 30s on the list
Sudden death of Amy caused a new wave of popularity for this album. True masterpiece - Irina2932
Yes Yes Yes!
I love Back to Black!
This album was best of 2012, no doubt, but with songs that are on the billboard 100 for 87 weeks with radioactive and 29 for demons? That is unbeatable. No way that this wasn't the breaking point of many alternative people such as twenty one pilots.
A modern equivalent to many of the songs in the top ten. Absolutely incredible; a contemporary masterpiece. This will be looked back upon in the same ranks as Nirvana twenty years from now.
The guy who said this will be looked back upon the same ranks as Nirvana 20 years from now is a complete idiot
Not the best band, but the best album. - growlbunny
After Trilogy this has to be their best - couldn't get into Tarkus but Pictures At An Exhibition also deserves a mention...
Hell Yeah! At least it's on the list, but should be A LOT higher. Probably, on the top 20
Needs to be way higher
What?! This is considered to be one of the best albums of all time by one of the best artists! Have people already forgotten Björk?
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
