Top Ten Best Albums of 1973

The Top Ten

1 Queen - Queen

Rock Legends debut album was spectacular with the wounderful Keep Yourself Alive guitar intro and Queen's brilliant musical ability.

2 Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

Queen's first album is promising, but not great. The Dark Side of the Moon, however, is not only great - it's out of this world. Words can't describe how this album affects me.

#2? #2? You kidding me? This is the only album I've ever heard that literally left me speechless after hearing it.

On the top ten best albums of all time list this is #1, but it makes sense that it isn't the best album of the year it came out. - LinoRhino

There's no way Queen's above this. I thought this site worshiped this album. - ProPanda

3 Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy
4 Genesis - Selling England by the Pound

Queens debut was good but not like this

This one deserves more votes. - Gg2000

In my opinion it's better than dark side of the moon or queens debut ( which I thought was releasd in 72 I was probaly wrong) firth by fith, dancing on the moonlit knight, and cinema show might change your mind but I still love queens debut and dark side of the moon

5 Shirley Bassey - Never, Never, Never
6 Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
7 The Rolling Stones - Goats Head Soup
8 The Who - Quadrophenia

I'd say this deserves to be higher than 9. One of The Who's best albums. - Metarock

Can't believe this is so low - UsernameHere
