The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Colour and the Shape - Foo Fighters
42 Lonerism - Tame Impala
43 Absolution - Muse
44 Wasting Light - Foo Fighters
45 Unplugged - Nirvana
46 Hail to the Thief - Radiohead
47 A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
48 Blood Sugar Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers' best album, probably the best album they ever going to make.

49 X&Y - Coldplay

Should be way higher! Absolutely incredible album from start to finish. Every song is great and the band really shows what they are capable of. The lyrics are also immeasurable.

50 White Pony - Deftones

I'm not sure if this album is among the best alternative albums of all time, but it's really good and a lot better than a lot of the albums on this list. - Imreallyboredrightnow

51 Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

This is not alternative it is progressive

This isn't an alternative album guys.

52 Fallen - Evanescence
53 Meteora - Linkin Park

I prefer this to hybrid theory, there I said it! This album captures everything I love about Linkin Park, I don't what the hell happened to them after they released New Divide with A Thousand Suns & Living Things but that's not the linkin park I know, Meteora is amazing! So many of the songs are underrated such as figure.09 and lying from you and hit the floor! One of my top 3 albums ever! Love It and deserves to be in the top 10 along with Hybrid Theory!
