63 Dressed to Kill - Kiss V 1 Comment
64 Tommy - The Who

First real rock concept album. should be much higher. Love Deep Purple but tommy better than all but maybe Machine head and definitely better than all of their later stuff.,

This track list from the rock opera tommy...is truly a fantastic work of art.

65 Aqualung - Jethro Tull

Jethro tull has fallen out of favor...but historically they were as big as zeppelin during the day

Great album. should be higher

Amazing mix of diffrent types of music and a awesome flute

66 KISS - Kiss
67 Leftoverture - Kansas

Every song on this album is a masterpiece. Lyrically sublime, and masterfully written; instrumentally intricate and honestly perfect. I love this album.

Great sound. Dust in the wind moves you. Carry on my way ward son is legendary.

68 Rock and Roll Over - Kiss
69 Pyromania - Def Leppard

Should be higher

70 Van Halen - Van Halen

Greatest Van Halen Album. Eddie is a master. Anyone who picks up a guitar appreciates Eddie talent. The whole band is awesome. Raw sound.

Who ever voted this is awesome

The greatest Van Halen ever!

This album and a couple other VH albums should be ahead of 1984 on this list

71 The Stranger - Billy Joel

Seriously? Billy Joel is so underrated nowadays.

72 Who Do We Think We Are - Deep Purple
73 Operation Mindcrime - Queensryche

Should be much higher than this!

Absolute masterpiece, how does this album get no respect

74 Quadrophenia - The Who

This album was revolutionary. Tommy was their first rock opera but this one built on Tommy and added new elements. Pete Townshend considers it his magnum opus and rightfully so.

The Who's greatest album

75 Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys

I have every record on this list and hundreds more. Pet Sounds is in the TOP 20 albums for my tastes. Certainly would make the 'if I was on a deserted island list'

The Beach Boys aren't entirely my cup of tea, but Pet Sounds is one of the best albums of all time, not just rock.

You Gotta Be Nuts! This Is One Of The Top 10 Albums Of All Time! Every Rock Group Praises This Album.

This is a top 3 album.

76 Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin

Most powerful Zeppelin album. Page may have gotten better on 2, 3 and 4, but Plant was at his best here and the rhythm and blues can't be matched.

Way too low! Should be in the top twenty for sure.

Definitely should be higher

What!

77 Powerslave - Iron Maiden

Brilliant

78 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John
79 London Calling - The Clash

One of the best albums ever recorded!

One of the best albums of the 70's

Amazing album. My favourite.

Insane album. a mix of everything that made the 70's great.
