Best Rock Double Albums

The Top Ten

Quadrophenia (The Who) Quadrophenia (The Who) Product Image

It's a story telling album about the Mod movement of the sixties. Amphetamines, Vespas, Clothes, battles between rockers and mods. But most of all it's an album ( with wonderful songs by the way ) who tells the story of an individual with a identity crisis who wants to be like nobody else, who wants to be in a elite group of mind-a-likes. He soon find out that most of them are hypocrits and just " week end mods " and not really commited to the movement. Only a genius like Pete Townsend could write a double-album story like that.

Favorite album in the world

Yeah, like The Wall with it's worst melodies and less interesant plot could beat it.

The White Album (The Beatles) The White Album (The Beatles) Product Image

This Beatles album has such a varied, rich sounding, and eclectic composition of music ranging from the 1920s ragtime of "Honey Pie, " the avant-garde sound of "Revolution #9, " to the proto-metal roar of "Helter Skelter, " "Yer Blues, " and "Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me and My Monkey. "

The greatest double album, and one of the greatest albums ever!

"Quadrophenia" had never the impact of the white album

Nothing can beat it

The Wall (Pink Floyd) The Wall (Pink Floyd) Product Image

Comfortably Numb, Hey You, Another Brick In The Wall, Mother, etc. This album goes beyond human conception. It is the most sold double album of all time.

This is my personal favorite album from Pink Floyd - pure brilliance and perfection. Modern rock artists don't make albums like this anymore - Irina2932

Every song is pure magic and the concept is so amazing. Should be the 1.

Just the best ever! Love them so much!

50 million times better than the wall or london calling. physical graffiti should be 3rd

The best rock and roll album ever! It seamlesly takes the listener through a journey to all the influeces that rock and roll was derived from, blues country, gospel and soul. PERFECT!

All Things Must Pass (George Harrison) All Things Must Pass (George Harrison) Product Image
Physical Graffiti (Led Zeppelin) Physical Graffiti (Led Zeppelin) Product Image

The record that showed just how versatile and flexible they were. This was the record that cemented the idea that no style was beyond them.

This record showed the greatest level of diversity from Zeppelin on any record

Some great ones on this list, but this one is the greatest in my opinion

Absolutely belongs in top two all time double rock albums.

The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (Genesis) The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (Genesis) Product Image

This album-masterpiece wasn't even mentioned here. I'm shocked. "The Lamb... " should be in the Top 3 - Irina2932

YEAH! It's in the top ten! That is so awesome! I wasn't expecting that.

I personally think that these are at least as good as Appetite. Some of the songs (Dust N' Bones, 14 Years, etc. ) are severely underrated

Blinking Lights and Other Revelations (Eels) Blinking Lights and Other Revelations (Eels) Product Image

Mr Es most personal songs yet I can absolutely relate to most (not all) of his lyrics. The feel of the album is exactly how the album cover looks - Melancholic, nostalgic and yet beautiful. Memorable songs with real meaning.

A deeply personal album containing some of Mr E's best work. An album that sounds like the front cover looks, melancholic, nostalgic, beautiful. Listen to Railroad Man - an absolutely incredible song...

Aerial (Kate Bush) Aerial (Kate Bush) Product Image

A very strange (and unique) mix of Pop with progressive rock. Disk one being a fairly straight-forward Rock/Pop album, Disk two being one of the best 40 minutes of music I've heard (and a single song-piece depending on the version you own! )
