Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Modern Vampires of the City - Vampire Weekend
102 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

103 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.

104 ...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.

105 Lateralus - Tool

This album is amazing!

Best Tool Album.

My favorite.

106 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

107 30 Seconds to Mars - 30 Seconds to Mars
108 Homogenic - Bjork

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?

109 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!

110 Demon Days - Gorillaz

Gorillaz never fails to inspire and amaze me

One of the best albums I've ever heard

Gorillaz is very timeless, and this album shows that.

An instant classic

111 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

112 Aja - Steely Dan

Music is at the very moment you listen after the music ends it evokes only a personnel thought no one else except liberals pretend to care long live boy bare

The classiest album to ever be made. The type of music businessmen listen to while smoking a cigarette, drinking wine and socialising in a dark room whilst playing poker.

Steely Dan's lyricism shows well throughout the album, adding touches of irony all over the place. The album excels as jazz fusion, even as refined as it is. This album may not have the emotions of a jazz album, but it is damn elegant. - Evafag

113 Low - David Bowie

Should be much higher this record is not only Bowies best but also one of the best albums ever made

Should Be Higher.

114 Agaetis Byrjun - Sigur Ros V 1 Comment
115 Queen II - Queen

Father to Son, White Queen, Ogre Battle, The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke, The March of the Black Queen, Seven Seas of Rhye, need I say more?

BEST BAND EVER x

116 Evanescence - Evanescence

It's a personal favorite of mine. I'm surprised it's on #85. However, you chose amazing albums for this list, the TOP 10 is amazing, you did a really good job, it's hard to choose which album is really the best.

117 Imagine - John Lennon

Generally, most known for the title-track, but it contains some other brilliant songs, like the McCartney-attacking 'How do you sleep? ' and 'Gimme some truth', 'Oh Yoko', one of the most beautiful love songs ever, the original 'Jealous Guy' and the lyrically excellent 'Crippled Inside'. Best Lennon-album!

John's best album love every track this album should be right near the top absolutely brilliant John's voice really great on all the tracks

Imagine is the only great song on this album

Should be way up higher

118 Band On the Run - Paul McCartney & Wings V 2 Comments
119 Fear of a Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree

Amazing album, porcupine tree is Steven Wilton's best work and some of the best progressive rock out there

120 The Joshua Tree - U2

Every single song in this album has a deep meaning embodied in itself. It is probably the best album of the greatest mellow rock band and U2's class is reflected in this piece of musical art. I on behalf of all U2 fans across the globe salute these legends who are responsible to bestow us peace of mind and satisfaction of soul

Look honestly this album should be in the top 10. Aside from the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and maybe Pink Floyd or the Stones, U2 is the greatest band, and aside from Achtung Baby, this is the greatest album. The Joshua Tree is full of lyrics that touch your soul in ways others simply don't. This album will understand you more than you understand you.

The greatest alum ever,where else would you find some of the greatest songs ever...This would pass as a best of album for any other band in the world.

Should be top 10
