Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Smile - The Beach Boys

I think this is better than pet sounds, but I don't think many people have listened to it - RecklessGreed

102 Amaryllis - Shinedown
103 Comfort Eagle - Cake
104 All Eyez on Me - 2Pac

"The Only One Scared Of Death Is The One That Didn't Contribute Enough In Life"-Makaveli The Don Killuminati - MAKAVELIthedon

Every single track was amazing and diverse in nature. It has a lot of top songs which defined Tupac's career

This is one of the greatest rap albums of all time by one of the greatest rappers who touched the mic. His lyrics were very deep, he brought emotion to hip hop and at the same time was a thug raised by the streets. He was a true inspiration! The greatest rapper of all time! Rest in peace Tupac!

First Double Disc Album in hip hop history, certified Diamond, and with Singles like How do you Want it and the smashing hit California Love how can it not be great. It should be in the top 50 or at least in the top 100. Other songs on this album are great too like : Ambitionz az a ridah, All bout u, 2 of Americkas most wanted, Only God Can Judge Me, Picture me Rollin', All Eyez on me,

105 Good Kid M.A.A. D City - Kendrick Lamar

One of the top story tellers in the history of rap

106 Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera

Its hard to believe people are voting for sissy boy bands over this tough heavy album. What the hell people

One of their best. Great ballads. True power.

Best album ever. It contains "Walk" and "Mouth for War"; isn't it enough to be the best?

First 6 or 7 songs are great, then it slides a little bit

107 Meddle - Pink Floyd

This underrated album was the first truly great work by Pink Floyd. It should have been their first multi-million seller. The epic 23-minute "Echoes" on side 2 and the catchy shorter songs on side 1 all showcased the band's spacey experimentation, originality, and skilled musicianship.

Doesn't deserve to be this low.

108 Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) - Wu-Tang Clan

21 on my top 100 albums list it is the 2nd greatest hip-hop album I have ever heard.Know way should "breakout" by Miley Circus be ahead of this - ChrisHenry

109 A Moon Shaped Pool - Radiohead

If you have cloth ears, then this will clear the problem.

I like all Radiohead reckords but this is definitely one of their better ones

110 Modern Vampires of the City - Vampire Weekend
111 Aenima - Tool

I understand why this album is so low; it's not a classic, it's not by a popular band, yadayada whatever. My point is, if tool was a mainstream band, this album would 100% be in the top five. This album is flawless! A mix of serious and humorous tones make this the not only the best tool album, but one of the best albums ever recorded. Listen to that drumming!

Sorry, but this is way out of the league of any of the other albums in the top ten. They should create a special category for Tool.

Almost flawless. Third Eye, H., Push it, Aenima, Eulogy are all perfect tracks. Impeccable vocals and drumming. And AWESOME riffs.

Should be in top 5

112 Images and Words - Dream Theater

oh comon! who's above this? 30 seconds to mars? Christina Aguilera? Leona Lewis??? please! anyone who has listened to the likes of Under a Glass Moon, Pull Me Under, Metropolis Pt. 1; the Miracle and the sleeper or Take the Time (all amazingly off one album - this one) will know that this deserves to be higher! - thunder2221

It inspired all modern prog metal- arguably the most-played type of metal by all modern metal bands with a record deal. A perfectly put together album; perfect contrast with heavy, light and different emotions. Best album ever.

Go vote for Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory, it's currently number 426

113 X&Y - Coldplay

Oh my gosh this album has so many amazing songs! I love it and I love Coldplay! They make fantastic music and this is my favorite album from them! You get amazing songs like Square One, What If, White Shadows, Fix You, Talk, X & Y, Speed of Sound, A Message, Low, The Hardest Part, Swallowed in the Sea, Twisted Logic (which is my favorite song on this album), and 'Til Kingdom Come. X & Y should be higher than this! Come on, people! Vote this amazing album higher!

all coldplay's albums is a masterpiece, except for the first album (Parachutes) x & y is not about performances or rockin out, its about beautiful tunes beautiful lyrics and being in coldplay's world, but a rush of blood to the head and viva la vida is definitely about rockin out, ps :coldplay definitely rullles!

This album is amazing. All the songs come together so nicely to form this message that the band is trying to make. Songs like Talk, a message, till kingdom come, fix you, are beautiful with both their lyrics and the music. This album should be ranked way higher! People should give it a listen because it truly is something great with every song.

Something special about this one.

114 Lateralus - Tool

This album is amazing!

Best Tool Album.

My favorite.

115 Brand New Eyes - Paramore

I love this album so much. I realize it's not a legendary album or a very famous/mainstream one either so it will probably never get to the top but it is definitely one the best albums I've ever heard. All the songs were unique but the album was organized very well, it's really relatable, it was really emotional too but it wasn't whiney at the slightest and lyrically wow it's just perfect. I just want to inject this album into my bloodstream

This. Is by FAR the most underrated album ever. Paramore's never really been mainstream or successful, but there's honestly so much unrecognized glory in this album. I can't vote for it, since I honestly consider Rumours more deserving of the spot, but I highly encourage people to do so.

This may not be the best album in the world... But it's worth listening to

116 30 Seconds to Mars - 30 Seconds to Mars
117 Endtroducing... - DJ Shadow

I listened to The Mountain Will Fall just yesterday, and the semi-enjoyable calamity that that album was only made this one better. It's an electronic classic. It's soothing, calm, focused, tight, subdued, and authentic. There's only a few minor gripes I have with this album: the song Untitled (not exactly horrible, but there's only four bars and they are of someone complimenting the butts and eyes of six different sisters), the fact that this record ends up toppling itself after a while, -- and even then is still enjoyable -- and the fact that this is an album of samples, but even then it's all very cleverly used.

I'm thinking a decent 9/10, and my highest of recommendations. - WonkeyDude98

118 Rise - Skillet V 1 Comment
119 Dreamboat Annie - Heart

So happy to see this on a "best" list! One of my all-time favorites!

Absolute classic and a gem of an original album.

Love this band. Real rock pioneers.

Great songs and singing!

120 Selling England by the Pound - Genesis

Genesis best album. Firth of Fifth, The Cinema Show, Dancing With the Moonlit Knight, I Know What I Like - Wow. Probably the best prog rock album of all time. Hearing these songs played live takes them to to an even higher level, seeing the band perform the intricate melodies and time signatures.

Such an under valued album, personally, it's a top 5 album, but looking at it from the outside, this album should still be in the top 50

More people need to hear and know about Genesis. ALL of Genesis's music. Both eras: Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel as singers. Also, progressive rock should be more appreciated in general.

This is the best album of all time, genesis are really great. I like duke too - MonkeyDude98

Why "Pet Sounds" should be higher, "Appetite For Destruction" lower, and "OK Computer" still.
