162 Worship Music - Anthrax
163 Power Windows - Rush
164 Yours Truly - Ariana Grande
165 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.

166 (What's the Story) Morning Glory? - Oasis

By far the greatest album ever released. The amount of classics on here is unbelievable. Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova, Don't Look Back In Anger, Some Might Say, Roll With It, the list goes on!

175? What the hell? Not a single weak track, wonderwall, don't look back in anger, champagne supernova, morning glory, she's electric, the master plan (b side) what stunning songs!

Some amazing songs in this album!

Everything on this album is a classic! - Spark_Of_Life

167 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 '~'

168 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!

One of the all time BEST!

How on Earth is nicklebeck if front of this MASTERPIECE!

169 Every Picture Tells a Story - Rod Stewart

Easily a Top 50; probably Top Ten!

EPTAS is at least top ten worthy.
First album ever that set the standard in unconventional songwriting; A chorus was no longer needed.

170 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.

171 Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Wilco

Joke that this is not higher.


172 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.

173 Confessions - Usher

2nd most recent album to reach diamond status. (10, 000, 000 copies worldwide).

174 Symbolic - Death
175 2014 Forest Hills Drive - J. Cole

Great album about his childhood

176 American Tragedy - Hollywood Undead

If you think you know what real Rap-Rock and Nu-Metal is you haven't heard it yet until you listen to this record.

177 The Resistance - Muse

I don't think this album is so famous as it is good. Every song has an unimaginable amount of effort put into it, and every track has a distinct sound. A phenomenal mix of rock, metal, and even orchestra. For a relatively recent album, too, this is a stunning work of art from beginning to end. Muse delivers on their best whole album by far..

178 Homesick - a Day to Remember
179 Of Beauty and Rage - Red

One of the best albums I've ever heard. - BillyBobJoe

Red may be the best kept secret in all of Rock, and this album may be the best album nobody knows about. The strings, the guitar and Barnes' vocals are just perfect on this album. With hard hitters like Imposter, Fight to Forget and Falling Sky.
Emotional songs like Of these Chains, Yours Again and The Ever.
Emotional hard hitters like Darkest Part and Gravity Lies.
And probably my favorite song of all time, Part That's Holding On, truly a masterpiece.
Red is the most underrated band in the rock genre, and they deserve way more recognition than they get. - Random_Guy1

180 The Woman In Me - Shania Twain
