2 Hot Space - Queen

Often viewed narrow mindedly as the band's worse studio album. This is mainly due I feel to it being a radical departure into synthesizer pop after a decade of heavy rock. They subsequently returned to their rock roots on the following album "The Works" and when you listen to Hot Space now its wonderful how alive Freddie's voice sounds. It also contains one of the best bass riffs ever in "Under Pressure" I really like this album... a lot. - hillerbees

What? LOL this is their weakest album and yet I have no idea why its this high - christangrant

What? This album is horrivel. Come on, you guys are just voting for it because of Under Pressure.-. Is not fair, we are judging the album, not one song - ChameleonKing

3 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden

Woe to you, oh earth and sea
For the Devil sends the beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short
Let him who hath understanding
Reckon the number of the beast
For it is a human number
Its number is six hundred and sixty six.

The best album ever apart from Bruce Springsteen: born in the USA.

One of their best albums! Songs like "Blackout" or "Dynamite" are pure energy and "When the smoke is going down2 is an amazing ballad.
