Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 7

121 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

122 White Pony - Deftones
123 Modern Vampires of the City - Vampire Weekend
124 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

125 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

126 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

127 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

128 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

129 Hunting High and Low - A-ha

Ground breaking album, evocative and pure class from vocals, song writing to melodies. Can put this album on now and drives you wild

I just like this album... Although it took me so long to find out how good it is... - Daisymorot

This album carried me through the teenage years. It helped me formed my views of adult life

Wow this album is full of pure melody. Morten's voice is like silk

130 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

131 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

132 Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin

This album may not be their best selling album, but it is certainly their best album by far! It marked a milestone for the band, being their most acoustic and bluesy album, it holds my 1st and fifth favorite songs, which are since I've been loving you and tangerine, this album is much like bb king, Stevie Ray Vaughan and An acoustic version of all dave matthews band made an album. I am not happy with the first choice, although it is a good album it is not the best, although one of the best selling albums. Let the underdog win, how popular doesn't mean how good, how is there no zeppelin?

This is ranked below nickelback? Whislt not led zeps best album, the fact that it's this low is a travesty

133 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.

134 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

Should be way up higher

Has real soul!

135 In Utero - Nirvana

Bearing a more raw aesthetic than it's predecessor, Nirvana's "In Utero" surpasses "Nevermind" in almost all areas.

In my opinion, this album was even better than Nevermind. There's a lot of variety on this album, from the haunting sound of 'Dumb' to the raw screams of 'Scentless Apprentice'. This is just an amazing album, my favourite ever.

Even better than Nevermind, that's true.

136 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?

137 Dark Before Dawn - Breaking Benjamin
138 The Eminem Show - Eminem

Want to get pumped up? Listen to the most amazing song on the album, 'Till I Collapse.
Want to laugh? Listen to Without Me.
Want to be grossed out? Listen to Drips.

WHAT? This is at 44! It deserves to be in top 5! This is the best album ever made! Hats off to king of rap.very meaningful songs.

This should definitely be more higher. This is 1/7 albums that had been certified Diamond selling over 10 million albums and it can't even make it in the Top 100. And with the Hit #1 Single Without Me make it a success. Songs like Without Me, Sing For The Moment, Cleaning Out My Closet, Till I Collapse, and Superman make it a success

This is the most played album on my phone, no other album is played more than this by me, even his MMLP got less than a quarter of the numbers played. Hail the king of Rap Rock.

139 Origin of Symmetry - Muse

This album deserves to be higher, I have heard this album too many times and I still don't get enough, it's very good. (even though Absolution is my favorite Muse album =P)

Easily the most creative, progressive and well structured album of all time. Each song tackles serious and occasionally taboo issues (megalomania) with a sense of imagination. It also helps that this is probably the fan favourite album and also had the best critical reception of all their albums. Apart from that one critic that gave it one star. Well done mate!

So good I downloaded it on itunes and still went out and bought the CD, just in case my computer wiped it or something

This should be in the top 20s.
