Top Ten Classic Rock Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Blood On the Tracks - Bob Dylan V 1 Comment
62 The Beatles (The White Album) - The Beatles

Just listen to this record and you will agree best Beatles album ever!

63 Stormbringer - Deep Purple
64 Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen and the Street Band

What? This may be the best album in the last 40 years! Only the Who or the Stones put rock albums out as good as this.

A genius album from a genius artist. This rating makes no sense.

Should be top 10

Oh my god why is this so LOW?

65 Fireball - Deep Purple

One of the very first albums I ever owned. Still in my album collection still played regularly.

66 Live at Filmore East - The Allman Brothers

The very best live recording ever. most influential slide guitar work!

Greatest Live Rock album...

Best live album ever!

Best album ever

67 Dressed to Kill - Kiss V 1 Comment
68 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 truly a fantastic work of art.

69 KISS - Kiss
70 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

71 The Stranger - Billy Joel

Seriously? Billy Joel is so underrated nowadays.

72 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.

73 Rock and Roll Over - Kiss
74 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

75 Pyromania - Def Leppard

Should be higher

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


77 Powerslave - Iron Maiden

How in the hell is this number 80


78 Who Do We Think We Are - Deep Purple
79 Operation Mindcrime - Queensryche

Should be much higher than this!

Absolute masterpiece, how does this album get no respect

80 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
