The Top Ten
1 Queen - News of the World Queen - News of the World Product Image

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 Pink Floyd - Animals Pink Floyd - Animals Product Image
3 Electric Light Orchestra - Out of the Blue Electric Light Orchestra - Out of the Blue Product Image

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.

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.

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!

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

4 ABBA - The Album ABBA - The Album Product Image

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.

5 Fleetwood Mac - Rumours Fleetwood Mac - Rumours Product Image

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.

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.

This album is a Rock masterpiece.

6 Television - Marquee Moon Television - Marquee Moon Product Image
7 David Bowie - Low David Bowie - Low Product Image

David Bowie's first album in the Berlin Trilogy collaboration with Brian Eno. Plays like a greatest hits album. Singles ''Sound and Vision'' and ''Be My Wife'' stand alongside heavyset gems ''Always Crashing in the Same Car", ''What in the World'', and ''Breaking Glass''. Bowie sheds his ''Thin White Duke'' persona that masked his previous year's effort ''Station to Station'' in favor of this new, more subtle David that sought to ''normalize'' his career with this dynamic album that veered rapidly into a combination of electronic, rock, punk, and pop music.

8 Rush - A Farewell to Kings Rush - A Farewell to Kings Product Image
9 David Bowie - "Heroes" David Bowie -

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''.

10 The Clash - The Clash The Clash - The Clash  Product Image
The Contenders
11 Billy Joel - The Stranger Billy Joel - The Stranger Product Image

After releasing the legendary album Turnstiles in 1976, Billy Joel came out with what most people considered his best album, "The Stranger". Other than the iconic "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant", beautiful songs such as "Only the Good Die Young" and "Vienna" are extremely memorable and are seen as few of his best songs, and obviously the best songs of 1977 in the field of both Rock and Pop.

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''.

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?

22 Yes - Going for the One Yes - Going for the One Product Image
23 Styx - The Grand Illusion Styx - The Grand Illusion Product Image

Even with at times bloated progressive rock, Styx showed major improvements in musicianship and songwriting with this breakthrough album that included one of their signature songs: ''Come Sail Away''.

So if you think your life is complete illusion
because you never win the game
just remember that it's a grand illusion
and after all we are all the same...
