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

170 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West

This album is perfection! The songs are all genius and they all go with the theme that he is trying to express. Definitely top 5 album of all time.

One of the best albums of the decade.

Thie should be top 10 at least somewhere close to that. Get headphones, put this album on, close your eyes and you'll see what I mean. Perfct in my subjective opinion.

171 ...And Justice for All - Metallica ...And Justice for All - Metallica

Blackened, and justice for all, one, harvester of sorrow, dyers eve and much more. There is not a bad song on this album

The fact that this wasn't up here shows how many people are def. This is, IMO, the GREATEST album ever released. -

With Ride the Lightning, best metal album ever... And Justice for All could easily be Top 20 albums ever.

Underrated and unappreciated.

172 Curtain Call: The Hits - Eminem Curtain Call: The Hits - Eminem

Has all the best Eminem songs from the previous albums plus 3 new ones, one of them a masterpiece. But I really think this album is underrated '~'

173 Aqualung - Jethro Tull Aqualung - Jethro Tull

The bass line and guitar solo in Aqualung are just sick! Listen to the progression and structure of the riffs and be amazed. Great moment in recorded rock history. Martin Barre even ripped through that solo while Jimmy Page had walked into the studio and was watching! That's balls!

, what an amazing album. Ian Anderson is a genius composer/flutist/acoustic guitarist and everyone else in Tull is a virtuoso. Beside the classic Aqualung, there's Locomotive Breath, Hymn 43, Cross-Eyed Mary -- all fantastic rock tunes. The quieter tunes are incredible, too. Needs to be in Top 50 all-time albums.

Give me a break! 321? Who's ranking these? One of the best!

The classic. It stands completely alone.

176 Born In the U.S.A. - Bruce Springsteen Born In the U.S.A. - Bruce Springsteen

How can this album be so low on this list? I didn't see it in the top 40 and said to myself ", they forgot the Boss?!? " Then, I made a quick search and I saw that it was even worse... It was ranked 169th...
How can I say that? Where to begin? Well, first there are the lyrics... These are songs whose lyrics have actual meaning, talking about life, war, love... and then the music fits perfectly all the lyrics! You can't really understand this if you don't give it a try! Do it, and you will understand there is definitely something wrong with this list!
Now, if you are only interested in numbers, this album sold worldwide more than 30million copies. 7 of its songs were in the top 10 of the charts, which puts this album right behind Thriller...
Finally, guys, seriously, vote for it!

178 Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - Nicki Minaj Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - Nicki Minaj

Nicki is the queen of rap. She's iconic. This is not my favorite, it's The Pinkprint, but this is iconic as well.
