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

17 Ram - Paul & Linda McCartney

36 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.

37 Madman Across the Water - Elton John

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

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