Best Albums of All Time
The Contenders: Page 8
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.
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.
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

Korn is my favorite band of all time after Pink Floyd. This is by far their best album. It's so raw, it was a turning point in modern music.
korn is by the biggest metal act in music, they started the way for so many bands, korn by far has my vote for best band everV 1 Comment
Classic album from classic Madonna. Hits "Like A Prayer", "Express Yourself" and "Cherish" are still very important - Irina2932
Madonna's first album that earned an iconic status! Don't get me wrong, "Like a Virgin" (1984) and "True Blue" (1986) are fantastic but this album and its singles made history in 1989! Thank you Madonna!
Great mix of pop hits and ballads! I personally love Dear Jessie and Oh Father.
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
Definitely one of my favorites, along with nevermind. Billy sings with such emotion and this album has such personal song with heaps of meaning. I really love the smashing pumpkins and this is their best album by far.
A true masterpiece of Billy Corgan and crews amazing guitar riffs and powerful drumming styles.
An absolute masterpiece, really underrated, just as good as Nevermind in my humble opinion
This album is better than the 100 above it...
Everyone says OK Computer is their best, but I love The Bends. "Every" song is masterpiece. - sunsnasher
This needs to be up higher, at least in the Top 25, cause this is Readioheads best Album! - Lauda123
My favorite Radiohead album.
Amazing album from the greatest modern artist. Needs to be at least top 20.
Top 5 album of all time don't @ me
Full of great songs, such as "Leave out all the rest", "What I've Done" & others, there was no way I was going to leave this album out -
Am I the only one who thinks that this is better and more meaningful than Meteora.
This is the best album in 2012
Linkin Park returns! The best of 2012! Best songs "Lost In The Echo", "Burn it Down", "Castle of glass", "Powerless", and many more!
Linkin park is back! Spot on! The tracks in this album are really awesome! This should be on the top! The best from 2012!
You guys all lick Linkin Parks arse.V 1 Comment
This is one of the best albums ever. The best songs on this album would be: Exit Wounds because I love the Guitar at the end, You Won't Fell a Thing because the instrumental at the start is a great start to the album. I also love 3. Nothing because it was one of the first songs I knew by the band and I've always loved it. Finaly another one I've always loved "Science and Faith" - biddiebob99
Still the best album by Coldplay, every track brilliant, the one you go back to when you want to close your eyes and really listen to a good album on a bank holiday!
Not the best Coldplay album but still brilliant - Rorywilbren
Produced by Zappa, this belongs near the top. Hard to listen to at times, but pure innovation and genius. While I'm at it Zappa himself should be near the top -"We're Only in it for the Money" was actually recorded before Sgt. Pepper, and "Hot Rats" and "Burnt Weenie Sandwich" among many others should be well up this list. And here I am at #168 and not a single Dead album? Quicksilver Messenger Service? Ten Years After? Jefferson Airplane?
2nd favourite under Dark Side of the Moon.
