The Top Ten

1 Journey -- Escape

My favorite song on this album is don't stop believing - Ajkloth

My parents are friends with the lead singer

2 Rush -- Moving Pictures

One of the most brilliant albums of all time. This is one of those albums where Rush really showed their 1st class musicianship. Oh, wait, they show their 1st class musicianship on ALL of their albums!

3 The Rolling Stones -- Tattoo You
4 ABBA - The Visitors

This was ABBA's last studio album which ranked #1 in several counties worldwide.

When all is really said and done. That was abba's last album. ;( - ilovefrida

When all is said and done, One of us and The visitors, You gotta listen to them even if it wasn't in their best year

5 Def Leppard - High 'n' Dry
6 Discipline - King Crimson
7 Duran Duran - Duran Duran

This is cheating because greatest hits albums shouldn't count I mean Queen is a amazing band but still - christangrant
