Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 Queen - News of the World

Different Style but Queen WILL ROCK YOU

Queen's sixth album continues their hot streak with this album which, among other tracks, includes the duo of thumping ''We Will Rock You'' and balladeering anthemic ''We Are The Champions''.

2 ABBA - The Album

This Album was number 1 all over the world, with songs like Take A Chance On Me, The Name Of The Game, Eagle, and Thank You For The Music. - MGBSG1

Not a SINGLE bad song! Completely incredible.

3 Electric Light Orchestra - Out of the Blue

Just an absolutely brilliant album from start. Turn To Stone, right through to Wild West Hero. Jeff Lynne's song writing talent shines on this album it's a must have album in your collection. Others to have from this group are Time, Discovery and the acclaimed Face the Music.

Although I've seen some people dis this album before, I urge those people to listen to Side 3 again. "Concerto for A Rainy Day" just may be the most underrated progressive piece I've ever heard. It is so amazing that you'd just have to hear it for yourself. As for the rest of the album, it's just as amazing as well. Great album.

A GREAT album, in all aspects! Check it out if you have no nothing about it, you won't be disappointed. ELO is way underrated! - ansley

Amazing double album, best listened to on vinyl. This album, like many others by ELO, is simply fantastic.

4 Pink Floyd - Animals

Simply amazing album, dogs being my favorite song in the album. - Powerfultekin

5 Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

This album has been regarded as one of the greatest albums ever recorded. Classic songs like Go Your Own Way, Don't Stop, The Chain, and Dreams are still played on radio to this very day. If you haven't heard this album yet, go check it out. It's a gem, and I've been listening to it a lot lately. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

Are you kidding me? Why do Queen albums keep getting #1? The albums were good but they weren't THAT good. I guess they are just very popular on this site. Anyway, Rumours is amazing and deserves #1. NO question. - AlteredState

6 The Clash - The Clash
7 Television - Marquee Moon
8 Billy Joel - The Stranger

You people are out of your minds, if Rolling Stone put it at No. 70 ALL TIME, how do you people not even make it top 5 in it's year?

Billy Joel's magnum opus sixth album is carried by the weight of five consecutive smash hit singles, led by the double Grammy-winning ''Just the Way You Are'', but also includes four other pop gems including the steady, cautious ''Vienna'', the fast-paced and frantic ''Get it Right the First Time'', the soulful, gospel-tinged ''Everybody Has a Dream'', and, Joel's tribute to the second side of Abbey Road, the iconic ''Scenes from an Italian Restaurant''.

9 Kiss - Love Gun
10 David Bowie - Low V 1 Comment

The Contenders

11 Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols
12 Rush - A Farewell to Kings

an amazing prog album, that kept the genre alive for some years - diegokatabian

13 Foreigner - Foreigner

This Anglo-American band's 1977 debut immediately took hold of listener's minds with smash singles ''Feels Like the First Time'' and ''Cold as Ice'', while also hiding some album gems ''Starrider'' and ''Long, Long Way From Home''.

14 Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell

Composed by Jim Steinman but performed by dynamic singer Meat Loaf (Michael Aday), this iconic album includes a barrage of hit singles such as "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)", "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad", the title track, and one of Meat Loaf's strongest vocal performances, ''Paradise by the Dashboard Light", a duet with singer Ellen Foley.

15 Elvis Presley - Moody Blue

Great album! Probably one of Elivs best work and has some great songs. Definitely the number 1 choice for that year

16 Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True
17 David Bowie - "Heroes"

The second album in Bowie's Berlin trilogy collaboration with Brian Eno, this album continues to display his ability to jump seamlessly between different styles of song. This album is his take on electronic/new wave pop. The title track is easily the album (and possibly Bowie's) masterpiece, while other gems include ''Beauty and the Beast'' and ''V-2 Schneider''.

18 Steely Dan - Aja
19 Heart - Little Queen

Heart continues their platinum success with this album that includes the fiery ''Barracuda''.

20 Ramones - Rocket to Russia
