The Top Ten

1 Sad Wings of Destiny - Judas Priest V 1 Comment
2 2112 - Rush

Told a story better than some books.

3 Rocks - Aerosmith

Why is Rush at Nr. 1? They aren't hard rock or heavy metal, and this is a list for that.
Rocks is a very consistent hard rock record and doesn't have 1 bad song on it. It's awesome.

4 Rising - Rainbow

This album is just epic at all levels - epic songs, epic vocals (Dio) and instrumental performances (Ritchie Blackmore, Cozy Powell, Jimmy Bain, Tony Carey). Songs like Stargazer and A Light In the Black are classics. - Metal_Treasure

The greatest album of all time

Best hard rock album of this year

5 T.N.T. - AC/DC

I'm pretty sure that AC/DC doesn't have an album that named T.N.T.. - Feirceraven

6 Jailbreak - Thin Lizzy
7 Destroyer - KISS

Come on, you can't beat Shout It Out Loud, Detroit Rock City, Beth, God Of Thunder, etc.

8 A Day at the Races - Queen
9 Presence - Led Zeppelin

Achilles Last Stand is as powerful a Zeppelin track as you can get. Pure driving metal.

Woefully underrated Zeppelin gem.

10 Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap - AC/DC

Once upon a time AC/DC did a song called "Big Balls", and I belive that AC/DC has the biggest balls of all. the album that this song was on was Dirty Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap) so AC/DC has Dirty, Cheap, Balls
