Best Albums of All Time
The Contenders: Page 6
Dream Theater fans need to vote, this is by far the greatest album of all time.
Seriously. This album. Go and listen right now. Honestly. Please.
Nicholas doesn't like this list.
Should be in the top ten! Every single song on this album is incredible and beautifully written. Clocks, politik, god put a smile upon your face, are all amazing but then again so is everything else on the album. It really shows Coldplay's true talent and versatility with each song. Incredible album
A lot of the albums above this, they just have two or three standout songs. This should be in the top ten because every track is a classic and is worth listening to.
Coldplay's most distinctive album, not just because of the made for radio hits (Clocks and The Scientist) but more importantly the more artistic statements made through the title track and Amsterdam. The best top to bottom album the group made.
Why is this so low?!V 10 Comments
"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,V 8 Comments
In terms of sheer heaviness, there aren't many album I have heard that are darker, moodier, heavier, and more emotional than this. Every song is a masterpiece. Key tracks: Rooster, Down In a Hole, Would? , Them Bones, Rain When I Die
Arguably the most influential rock band of the 90's. Every song sang by Layne Staley is a thing of beauty.
Viewing the album as a whole, I actually think Dirt is better than most of the Nirvana albums.
In my opinion, Alice in Chains are more musically influential then Nirvana, how many bands take Nirvanas sound and just add a slightly different vocalist, none that I can name, but Alice in Chains has Godsmack, KoRn, and 75% of 2000s metal bands.V 5 Comments
This is one of the best albums on the planet, but gets very little recognition. The lyrics tell about Adams fight against addiction and the music really touches the heart.
Greatest album ever. Some of the best sons including Never Too Late, Animal I have Become and the best Gone Forever.
This song is definitely my favourite! There is not a single song on it that I find any less than amazing.
Wouldn't this be shocking if this actually was #28?
It is AMONG one of the worlds best selling albums, selling OVER 30 Million copies - SmoothCriminal
It has my #1 song of all time in it, SMOOTH CRIMINAL - SmoothCriminal
What has happened to this world?!? How it is so down?!? It has the third best music video in it- SMOOTH CRIMINAL! it has the sweatiest song of all time- MAN IN THE MIRROR! And also one of the best pop songs- BAD!
The best album ever. Not a single track, and I mean not a single track that is not great on this one. Even the ones you see in top 10 of this list have at least one track that could not be classifed as great, even Thriller (*cough* The Girl is Mine *cough*). 9 out of 11 songs on it were written by Michael - This album shwcases MJ's talent, much more than Thriller ever could. Also how is HIStory, a much weaker MJ album above this masterpiece. Dangerous is should be in top 40 as well and this should be in top 10. But that's just what I think.V 4 Comments
The king of the guitar at his best. All Along The Watchtower, Crosstown Traffic, Voodoo Chile. This album is electric, energetic, original, full of virtuoso Hendrix performances. This is the best album ever produced!
So deserves to be in top 20 at minimum.
Better than Are You Experienced by a mile.
Why the ever loving christ is Blue all the way down here? You tell me a singer-songwriter album that's more influential and more iconic than this one. I almost guarantee you it's gonna take you a while. River, A Case of You, and Big Yellow Taxi are all classics, but every song on the album is worth listening to again, and again, and AGAIN.
This is my all time favorite album. it is the high bar for all singer songwriters, with the possible exception of dylan. here is mitchell reflecting on the album " there's hardly a dishonest note in the vocals. At that period of my life, I had no personal defenses. I felt like a cellophane wrapper on a pack of cigarettes. I felt like I had absolutely no secrets from the world and I couldn't pretend in my life to be strong. Or to be happy. But the advantage of it in the music was that there were no defenses there either." - RecklessGreed
So many good songs.
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.
Love this album xV 4 Comments
I just like the idea of animals throwing loads of poop at human beings. that just proves that animals don't like to be abused by humans so it's pay back time!
Has sold well over 23 million copies and has some of their best songs like "Longview" and "When I Come Around". Deserves to be in the top 15
The album that revitalized punk and created pop punk.
Come on guys! This is at least 10 times better than American idiot, which is way higher. This should be at least top 20V 2 Comments
