Best Rock Double Albums
The Top Ten
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.
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
The best.V 1 Comment
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!
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.
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.
One Of The Greatest Alternative Rock Double Albums. - FettiMC
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
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...
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! )
This is psychedelic " Krautrock " from A to Z. Their best album.
Modern progressive rock at its best. Consistent, memorable and varied. Check out 'Deform to form a star' - simply one of the best pieces of work Steven has created - solo, porcupine tree or otherwise!
A very dark melodic progressive rock album. Disk one being the better of the two. Somewhere between 70s riff-heavy bands such as Black Sabbath, and modern post-rock (Oceansize, and maybe Radiohead... )
Say anything you want bout the trio's double album, it was the first album that featured the guys experimenting with one solo side apiece as well as experimenting with some orchestras and the famous Yamaha GX1. Kudos
