Best Alternative Albums of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 We're Here Because We're Here - Anathema
22 Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morrisette
23 Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine
24 In Utero - Nirvana
25 Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends - Coldplay

Great from start to finish. It has such a distinct sound from anything else and it makes it even better! The theme and message of this album is clear and persistent in every song, and every single song sounds so different from the other. But every song is absolutely incredible, especially Lovers in Japan, Lost!, and Death and all of his friends

26 Dookie - Green Day
27 Kid A - Radiohead
28 Weezer (Blue Album) - Weezer

No way this is 30. Top ten for sure

29 Plastic Beach - Gorillaz
30 Am - Arctic Monkeys
31 The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
32 Minutes to Midnight - Linkin Park

This album is a joke

33 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
34 Ghost Stories - Coldplay

True genius by coldplay. Alhough a lot of people criticized it because of its mellow tone and its deviation from other albums, it is definitely one that deserves way more credit. If you actually listen to the album, you would see how incredible it actually is. It shows pain and heartbreak, but also light after the darkness. Each somg flows into the other and creates this incredible journey that each listener is taken through. It has no label, there are electronic elements, angels singing, beautiful guitar in every song, etc, that makes this album stand out as something different and unique from anything else done by anybody.

35 Badmotorfinger - Soundgarden
36 Funeral - Arcade Fire

It is such a good album! The group chose to use so many instruments, it's great. Each song is directly fallowed by another in a perfect chain and every single one of them tells a beautiful story.

37 Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! - Devo

I think this one should be in the top ten. - Caleb9000

38 Unplugged - Nirvana
39 The Colour and the Shape - Foo Fighters
40 Lonerism - Tame Impala
