4 Rachmaninoff, Concerto No. 3 - Van Cliburn
5 Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys

Even The Name Makes You Feel Good.

Brian Wilson's genius will never be repeated again. This album is pure and beautiful and positive. Unlike most albums that have become a Cliché this hasn't. It stands for something different. It is a timeless great which for 36 minutes helps you forget about your problems and have a different perspective on things. And for that same time it gives you a glimpse of heaven so you feel much happier. In my opinion this is the best album of all time by a long shot.

6 Machine Head - Deep Purple V 1 Comment
7 A Night at the Opera - Queen

What's Deep Purple Doing In Front Of Queen. Machine Head Is Trash Compared To Night At The Opera. i Don't Think Anyone Actually Realizes How Magnificent This Album Truly Is. There Has Never Been Anything Like It And Judging By The Music That's Being Released Today I Guarantee There Won't Be. All The Tracks, All The Lyrics Absolutely Everything About This Album Is Number 1. And Further More Why Is Straight Outta Compton Higher Than Abbey Road, Kid A, The Velvet Underground & Nico, Blonde On Blonde, Highway 61 Revisited, Rubber Soul And Last But Not Least Are You Experienced?

This Entire List Is Wack.

How the heck is Machine Head higher than Night At The Opera?
This album is literally the most unique albums of all time. Who would have thought Opera and Rock would go together so well?
Queen did and the result? Something different yet amazing to listen to. This is the only album that doesn't sound like anything else. Nothing and nothing is like it. Great album and it seriously deserves to be in the top 5.

Classic means unique AND this album is as unique as you can get. Name another album that has combined 2 genres as different as Opera and Rock And has made it sound good.

I Agree WITH what The Guy Above said.

8 Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin Will Never Be Repeated Again And This Album Too. This album just gives me chills every time I listen to it. It has songs for every mood your in. No album has ever been like that.From Stairway To Heaven To Black Dog and All the other songs on its track listing. All of the songs are masterpieces and if anyone can't understand that they're better off listening to nicki minaj and all the other mainstream pop artists. This album is what being a classic is all about. From the Music to the lyrics to the production and album art. This album deserves to be number 1.

Led Zeppelin IV should be number 1 on every list related to greatest albums

9 Wheels of Fire - Cream
10 In the Hands of the Master - Vladimir Horowitz

The Contenders

11 The Doors - The Doors
12 Highway 61 Revisited - Bob Dylan

This album is the greatest folk album of all time and a serious competitor for the greatest album of all time. Great music, great production everything is great in this album. It deserves to be in the top 10.

I Can't Belive 2 RAP Albums Are Higher Than This.And What Is Kid A Even Doing On This List?
This Album Is A Timeless Great.It Seems To Be Very Simple But It's More Than That. It's Special. Lyrically And Musically Can't Be Matched. And An Absolute Classic. Should Be Number One And The Only Album That Can Come Close To This Is "Pet Sounds".

13 Days of Future Passed - The Moody Blues
14 Blue - Joni Mitchell
15 Abbey Road - The Beatles

It's an absolute classic. There has never been an album as great as this. Beginning to end it's fantastic and while you listen to it, it relieves you of all the pain in your life and gives you something to be happy about. This album got me through depression when I was 17 after the death of my father. Without this album I would have definitely died. I don't know about anyone else but to me this is, was and forever will be the greatest album of all time.

16 Kid A - Radiohead

Its also an abomination that this weak crap is allowed to even be on the same page as the Beatles, Dylan, and Hendrix.

I'm pretty surprised to see this over Here while there's no sign of OK Computer.but I personally like kid A more Than OK computer.the entire production of this album is unique and special. It's one of the most unique albums I've ever heard. I love this album.

Having this here is like having a t*rd in a punchbowl.

17 Who's Next - The Who
18 Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan
19 The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground and Nico

Would someone mind explaining me how "Straight Outta Compton" and "Illmatic" are in the top 10 and this masterpiece is 13? Without this album and the velvet underground many of the bands we know and love wouldn't exist. seriously this album paved the way for rock as we know it. If anything should be called a "classic" it's this.
