Best Albums of All Time
The Contenders: Page 3
Prof Metal fans, go vote for Images and Words, and Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory by Dream Theater. As I am writing this Images and Words is number 269, and Scenes From A Memory is number 426, they both deserve to be WAY higher, especially Scenes
Nice to see my pick this high (35th). As a metalhead I'm pleased to see the popular metal albums high, but this is without a doubt the best in my opinion. Every song is killer and the plot is really interesting if you actually follow it.
This is the definitive prog metal album from a highly underrated band
Best album I've ever listened to. This one is a life-changer.V 3 Comments
If Eddie had taken both barrels instead of Kurt, these guys would be considered the most influential band of the grunge scene.
All the songs that made this album are wonderful
Best grunge album ever made, I would dare to say this album is tied with "London Calling" or "Re"
One of the few albums where I like every Song.V 19 Comments
THE MOST UNDERRATED GROUP EVER. Yes, I was yelling and standing on top of my desk when I typed that. For my money, this is absolutely a top ten album of all time. I love this group and this is their best album.
Epic have you heard something for nothing? The temples of syrinx it is pro! Rush is such a talented group of guys! Bass the guitar and Neil's drumming! It is amazing
Nothing like 2112 was ever heard before. The mixture of metal (for the time) prog in an expansive narrative was unique. 2112 is both explosive melodic and full of virtuoso playing, from the worlds greatest rock trio. Sure others have pushed this technique (maiden dream theater etc) but rush did it first, with the trend setting and groundbreaking 2112.
One of the best groups everV 7 Comments
Best hard rock album of all time. Every track is a killer. Still remember buying my first copy when it was released and being completely blown away by "Whole Lotta Love" (the song that blew out countless speaker bass cones as well). This one set the standard for all rock albums to follow.
Not only the best Led Zeppelin album, but the best album ever!
Best album ever and the first album ever truly be Metal.
This album is perfection. this is easily a top 5 album of all timeV 15 Comments
This album is absolutly amazing. Pete Townshend was in top form when he wrote this magnificent rock opera (that's right, ROCK OPERA) and it still endures today as being one of the most original concepts in all of music.
Although I never forgot about them (how can you? Their songs are still played all over on commercials, movies and T.V. shows) I have been giving the Who more listening time lately, they may just be the greatest rock band of all time, especially if you consider how they sounded live. I Could argue for the Who or Led Zep or the Beatles all day long, but each member of the Who was an amazing talent all by himself. Listen to "won't get fooled again in the concert for New York after 9/11--they outrocked all the newer bands by a mile, they are the real deal
The greatest concept album of all time and I love concepts especially the 'Rock opera' concept!
I wrote an article "The Top 200 Songs of The Who" and of course there are so many songs from this double-album towards the top of the list http :// supergro up.n etfirms .com/index5.htm
3) Pinball Wizard
14) We're Not Gonna Take It (See Me, Hear Me)
21) Amazing Journey/Sparks
30) I'm Free
31) Overture/It's a Boy
75) The Acid Queen
80) Tommy Can You Hear Me?
86) Go To The Mirror!
94) Eyesight to the Blind
100) Cousin Kevin - Garjen
This album is amazing. The only song that is even remotely uninteresting was For Free? (Interlude). The production in each song is amazing and it is a lyrical masterpiece.
Wow! What an amazing album this is. Astounding in ever level.
Should be in the top 100

Not only is the best album of the band, but also created a trend in heavy metal music. Along with Piece of Mind, one of the best albums of music history.
All the musicians on this album makes a huge job, especially Steve Harris notes. A historical record, no doubt.
Up the Irons!
This album truly defines what Metal is all about. Every song is epic, every riff is a masterpiece. Bruce Dickinson at his vocal best. Absolutely mind blowing album. Deserves to be in the 10 for sureV 2 Comments
I was on my way to add this if I didn't see it - SabbathV 2 Comments
For me it was a toss up between this and bridge over troubled water, though I love Simon and garfunkel and there music is just so charming, this album is so out there and creative it had to get the vote, the velvet underground are pure genius and yes this album may not have the mass appeal of Sgt. Pepper but does that mean it's not as good of course not, in fact this album is above and beyond, no one has made music quite like the velvet underground, they shown another side to music, they shown us what music can be, it's amazing what they did with this album and they should be recognised as one of the greats
This is the most influential and greatest album of all time. End of discussion. To have it in the 100s is a disgrace. The album is so far ahead of it's time that we still haven't caught up to it. The blues drone, the proto-punk lyrics and riffs. This album was designed to shock, using overdrive in a way Hendrix would never have imagined and literally creating alternative and noise rock. It's a brutal, maniac genius album, with the only free rock song I've ever heard. European Son
Lou Reed is undoubtedly the greatest songwriter in history, surpassing even the great Bob Dylan in his craft. Reed's borderline insanity and suicidal thoughts are exhibited in every song on this album. Listen to it. Step into a mind filled with madness.
Nico and the Velvet Underground are the dream teamV 14 Comments
I was curious and bought the album and it was a good move :) Its great! His accent is cute
On Saturday I had the pleasure to visit the concert in Flensburg (Ger). It was G R E A T. Menowin made jokes with us, he went around the fans and he sang in a way, I've still got mountains of feelings in my heart!
Here's one of those "we're throwing this in to show how cool we are" picks. How many people really sat through this whole album?
This ZERO ahead of The Doors? Um, No.V 3 Comments
I think it is the album of Evanescence and it consists of all of my favourite songs like Bring me To Life, My Immortal and Tourniquet. The Open Door and Evanescence are also too good. Please vote it to take a better position. It can go to the top
Epic album... All songs are perfect...
Evanescence is amazing! - samycat
This is the third album I vote for, it's great andd he worth it more that the restV 5 Comments
I LOVE YOU JESUS CHRIST shakes the listener to the bone in an album full of cryptic lyrics and bizarre instrumentation. This album achieves full emotion like no other album has for me.
Please. Who cares about Linkin Park and Fall Out Boy anyway. I did but that was a dark time known as Junior High School. Please, world. How does "Rockstar" by Nickelback compare to "Oh Comely"? This is a gem, folks. Appriecate it. This is not for everybody but this deserves top 100. At least.
It is my favourite album of all time, and it is a solid and consistent album which really makes you appreciate music more. - Jiorl
All I can really say is that it's a pretty good album, even if it is just a meme. It's a solid Indie rock album; nothing more, and nothing less. - EvafagV 5 Comments
This album is the definition of rock and roll. This easily deserves to be in the top ten. I am disgusted at how low this is.
The best album by a GREAT band. And a double album without a weak song. It should be in the Top 10.
The best of the Stones. Top 20 for sure.
It was only after listening to this album that I knew the definition of rock. I still can't put it into words, but it felt like a train hiting with a sledgehammer. Probably the most honest rock album ever made, and therefore probably the only rock album ever made. Trully amazing.V 7 Comments
How is this album on 23rd.? Come on American idiot on 13th really? Go and check any official List there is no American idiot on it and Metallica's black album comes before nirvana's never mind there is something really wrong with this list Metallica rocks and this album proved it. M/
Metallica should be at least number 10. I mean, come on! This is one of the greatest albums of all time let alone in heavy metal! That album has five, FIVE, number one singles, which is pretty hard to do now. Metallica is one of the most inspiring bands out there.
This is one of the best albums ever! Metallica are overall one of the greatest metal bands in the history of music and this is one of there top albums! This well deserves to be at least in the top 10!
Everyone who says that this is a sellout album can't handle anything different than metal, I like the first 4 albums and I liked this one. - DarkSideOfRandyV 13 Comments
Best stones album...after Brian's death they locked themselves in the studio and came up the the greatest rock album of all time..the press at the time thought they wouldn't better Beggars Banquet...Let it bleed easily surpasses it.
Best stones album
How can this possibly be the best Rolling Stones album without Brian Jones or Mick Taylor? The songs are good but lacking something...what is it?
The beggining of acid rock
Led Zeppelin's masterpiece. The best double album of all time because many successful bands of the '80s spent all their time redoing 5 songs on this album over and over again. Better than any other Led Zeppelin album and way better than any new cruddy artists work.
Recently revisited this album, and played it in its entirety near ten times in a week. It stands out in part due to the variety of style and influence. I suspect it is probably my preferred Zep album. Shared some of those ten plays with friends and family and no one, irrespective of musical taste objected. - Myke1
Stunningly diverse with side 3 (vinyl) the standout. They never reached these heights again.
Why is this so low? By far Zeppelin's best workV 4 Comments
'THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT US'
'YOU ARE NOT ALONE'
'STRANGER IN MOSCOW'
Seriously. This album should be at the 2nd place. I totally agree with the first one. It had to be THRILLER. But the 2nd one it should have been this. Have you all forgotten Michael's THEY don't CARE ABOUT US, YOU ARE NOT ALONE... Pretty sad
Stranger in Moscow is the best song in the HIStory of music
My top five:
1.Stranger In Moscow
2.They Don't Care About Us
Honorable Mentions: You Are Not Alone, Childhood, Scream - malamJONES
Seriously. This album. Go and listen right now. Honestly. Please.
Dream Theater fans need to vote, this is by far the greatest album of all time.
Nicholas doesn't like this list.
Best album ever. - ActOfGenesis
