The Top Ten

1 Meddle - Pink Floyd

The best. Echoes is the best rock music I ever listen!

2 Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV

This should be first, followed by either Who's Next or Meddle.

best

3 Islands - King Crimson
4 Who's Next - The Who
5 Sticky Fingers - The Rolling Stones

19 Can - Tago Mago
20 America - America
21 Pink Floyd - Meddle

So good, it's on the list twice. - MaxPap

22 Marvin Gaye - What's Going On

30 Coat of Many Colors - Dolly Parton

33 Joni Mitchell - Blue
34 Cold Spring Harbor - Billy Joel

Billy Joel's underrated debut. Originally ruined by bad mastering that made him sound like a chipmunk, the remasters since released now reveal his three biggest talents: unmatched piano playing, dynamic vocal performances, and his craft for pop songwriting.

35 Madman Across the Water - Elton John

Amazing work, what with Levon, Tiny Dancer, Holiday Inn, and Razor Face. Great album of 1971.

37 The Electric Light Orchestra - Electric Light Orchestra
38 The Kinks - Muswell Hillbillies
39 George Harrison - Concert for Bangladesh
40 Cat Stevens - Teaser and the Firecat
