321 The Family - Satchel
322 Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary Concert
323 Icon for Hire - Icon for Hire
324 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

325 In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson

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.

311? BS.

326 Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - The Smashing Pumpkins

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.

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

327 ...And Justice for All - Metallica

Blackened, and justice for all, one, harvester of sorrow, dyers eve and much more. There is not a bad song on this album

The fact that this wasn't up here shows how many people are def. This is, IMO, the GREATEST album ever released. -

With Ride the Lightning, best metal album ever... And Justice for All could easily be Top 20 albums ever.

328 Back to Black - Amy Winehouse

Sudden death of Amy caused a new wave of popularity for this album. True masterpiece - Irina2932

Yes Yes Yes!
I love Back to Black!

329 Deep Purple - Machine Head

What the matter people? Number 206? Machine Head has to be up there with Zeppelin 4 and Sabbath's Paranoid. The three albums are the triple crown of heavy rock in the 70's.
This album has everything a Rock&Roll lover need. Just listen to it one more...

Certainly this has to be one of top 5 hard rock albums of all time.

One of the best rock albums of all time. Highway Star a hell of a ride!

330 Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - Nicki Minaj

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

331 Allied Forces - Triumph

Really good, probably the best triumph album, however doesn't have their best song (Hold On)

332 Lemonade - Beyonce
333 Pure Heroine - Lorde V 1 Comment
334 Electric Warrior - T. Rex
335 Garbage - Garbage
336 In Absentia - Porcupine Tree

Very cited to see this made the top 100, brilliant album. Very dark theme throughout these amazing songs. But in my opinion, Deadwing should have this place of honour, with this album following shortly behind.

Fantastic, one of the best of the 21st century

337 Xo - Elliott Smith
338 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden
339 Electra Heart - Marina and the Diamonds
340 Break the Spell - Daughtry
