Best Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Minutes to Midnight - Linkin Park

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.

142 Living Things - Linkin Park

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.

143 Music for the Masses - Depeche Mode
144 Science & Faith - The Script

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

145 Use Your Illusion II - Guns N' Roses

See the comments for Use Your Illusion I...rockin' albums, far and away not given enough credit in "best album" polls.

146 Parachutes - Coldplay

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

147 Season In the Abyss - Slayer

Thrash classic, how is Master Of Puppets and Ride The Lightning So High and this so low? - Lucretia

148 Trout Mask Replica - Captain Beefheart

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?

Like you said..."hard to listen to at times". people want a little life to their music, not music that twists the brain into useless mounds of flesh. This is a crummy album and it will never be anything more than that. - frankmartin

149 There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Lets Keep It a Secret - Bring Me the Horizon
150 In the Nightside Eclipse - Emperor

2nd favourite under Dark Side of the Moon.

151 Art of Life - x Japan
152 Strangeways Here We Come - The Smiths
153 Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy - Elton John
154 Power Windows - Rush

I like this one. This is one of RUSH's better 80s albums. A big powerful sounding album in the top 3 Rush albums of the 80s behind Moving Pictures and Signals - frankmartin

155 Sun - Thomas Bergersen
156 Birds of Tokyo - Birds of Tokyo
157 Worship Music - Anthrax
158 Yours Truly - Ariana Grande
159 Grace - Jeff Buckley

I think this album is incredible. I especially like the song "So Real"

Truly moving

I remember the first time I listened to this album! Loved it and immediately went and bought the cd. Awesome! One of my all time favorites.

160 Blue - Joni Mitchell

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
