141 Hunting High and Low - A-ha 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

142 The Eminem Show - Eminem 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.

144 Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin 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

145 The Stranger - Billy Joel The Stranger - Billy Joel

I'm glad to see this in the top 200. Pop music doesn't get much better. - PetSounds

How could this be so low? It could be a greatest hits album!

146 All Things Must Pass - George Harrison All Things Must Pass - George Harrison

Amazing. George shares so much of himself. Many top songs. The most Beatle solo album. Probably as these were written during the Beatles. Releasing these masterpieces allowed George to feel lighter and start afresh.

147 Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys

How on earth is this 146! The guitar the lyrics the drums just everything is near perfection.

The perfect indie-rock album. punk and garage rock influenced. it came at a time where indie garage rock was very popular, but this is the best one out of all of them, due the the great energetic instruments and the insanely good writing by alex turner

149 Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble

Oh. My. Lord. How I wish I grew up in the place he did, just for that simple inspiration to play as good as he does. My favourite guitarist of all time. - mangomorse

150 White Pony - Deftones White Pony - Deftones
151 Mars - Gackt Mars - Gackt

The best album of all! Even though every album of Gackt is absolutely awesome. His voice is so full of emotions that you will get gosebumps everytime you here him sing... Also his variety of songs is incredible wide... his ballads are as wonderful as his rock songs.

This is a great gackt album... I love it... 'cause he is a great singer... I love him so much, he always moves us with his songs, in particular with this album

ohh mars is a great album. gackt is great singer. he is perfect.

Amaing album! I will never get tired of gackts music or x Japans music and l'arc en ciel! ~ they know real music!

152 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers

It had some of the greatest songs ever: Californication, Scar Tissue, Otherside, Around the World, Savior, Road Trippin'. It doesn't stop there.

Songs like Scar Tissue, Otherside, Around the World, Road Trippin', Savior, and Californication make this RHCP's best album - RHCPfan

Californication is the best song and album ever. Otherside is the 2nd best song on the album. Road Trippin', Easily, Around the World, Scar Tissue, and Get on Top are also signifigantly awesome!

195? Are you kidding me?

153 KoRn - KoRn KoRn - KoRn

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 ever

154 Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers

It's really hard to rule out which album is the best one ever. And it's even harder to do it alone. But, really, this is the only album that is magical to me. Drums, bass, vocals and guitar are superb. You just press play and fly away.

Blows my mind. The instruments, the melodies, just straight jamming for 28 tracks straight. No bad songs here at all.

wet sand.. beautifully written amazing solo.. one of the best two-disc albums for a long time

This is a good one.
I like all of the songs, especially hump de bump and readymade. - Mowglijungle14

155 Like a Prayer - Madonna Like a Prayer - Madonna

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.

156 Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven - Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven - Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Simply the greatest of all time.

157 Rust Never Sleeps - Neil Young

This is more than just soulful but a real deep feeling work of art!

"The King is gone, but he's not forgotten, this is the story of Johnny Rotten". And 'Thrasher' has some of the most beautiful lyrics ever.

158 Minutes to Midnight - Linkin Park 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.

159 Selling England by the Pound - Genesis 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

John Lennon himself sais that this was one of his favorite albums.

It deserves to be top ten!

160 Living Things - Linkin Park Living Things - Linkin Park

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!

This is one of theur best album ever made. Totally deserves top 10 because very few bands used electronic instruments so well. Linkin Park RULES

This is one of Linkin Park's worst albums and I'm confused, how is this so high? - Powerfultekin

You guys all lick Linkin Parks arse.
