Best Albums of All Time

121 Modern Vampires of the City - Vampire Weekend Modern Vampires of the City - Vampire Weekend
122 Hysteria - Def Leppard Hysteria -  Def Leppard

The Beatles, Stones, the Who, Zeppelin, and Floyd albums deserve their respective places on this list because of their great song writing and backing music. They all stand alone but on the next level a band like definitely Leppard leads the charge. They had several great albums, led by Hysteria, an album that has been underrated due to it's connection to the hair band era. It had six hit singles and the fillers were nearly as good. How many albums out there can you say that about? This should be at least a top 75 album.

One of the Staples of 80's Rock. Def Leppard Blew down the doors in 87 with this album. For a while they were the biggest band in the world.

123 X&Y - Coldplay 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.

Love this album x

124 Dookie - Green Day Dookie - Green Day

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 20

125 Brand New Eyes - Paramore 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

126 Homogenic - Bjork Homogenic - Bjork

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?

Do me a favor, and, listen to some of the other albums on this list, such as the one two spots down from this. if you still like this, well, that's fine by me, but try some new albums - RecklessGreed

Without doubt, the GREATEST album ever recorded! This album was released when I was about 7 and turned me on to rock & roll. If you listen to any rock radio station anywhere in the country for 24 hours, you will hear every song off this album every day. What other album can make that claim? None. I have never heard anyone say they are sick of hearing it, almost 40 years after it was released! This album is so great, it actually screwed the band. They made the greatest album ever for their debut. How do you top that? You don't. I doubt anyone ever will.

wow 98th? that just shows the crappy taste of this generation...
THIS IS THE GREATEST SELLING DEBUT ALBUM EVER! 17 MILLION PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME! - wolf10

Phenomenal album, every song a gem. Amazing vocals and harmonized guitars. Unfortunately, overplayed on classic rock stations for decades. Still doesn't change the fact it's an amazing album.

How in the world is the fastest selling debute album of all time and the 11th most sold album ever at 211th! I mean ofc its not the best album, but its really really good and deserves a way way better position.

130 Aenima - Tool Aenima - Tool

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

#70 cmon the 13 minute epic third eye, the greatness of all the songs
popularizing progressive metal
cmon - blaqksails92

So...
I'm only voting for this because it's the closest to the top Tool have got!
Brilliant album, but I'm very disappointed at 345th place.
I mean, come on. 345th?
I see Tool surrounded by Rise Against and Breaking Benjamin!
Come on Tool fans! Let us unite and get this to the top 100!

Should be in top 5

133 Aja - Steely Dan 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

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

One of the top story tellers in the history of rap

135 Evanescence - Evanescence 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.

136 Imagine - John Lennon 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!

Imagine is the only great song on this album

#119? What? Why this is just sad seeing nickleback higher than this is just disgusting

137 Meddle - Pink Floyd 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.
