Top Ten Classic Rock Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

82 The Joshua Tree - U2

This album changed the music industry forever. U2 is such an amazing group, and Bono is a great person.

Greatest rock album of all time - this coming from a huge Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan and Jim Morrison fan.

83 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John
84 Blonde On Blonde - Bob Dylan V 2 Comments
85 Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf

Perfect album. Best vocalist in all of rock.

This should be in the top twenty or higher!

86 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.

87 Highway 61 Revisited - Bob Dylan

Should be higher since it inspired electric folk and helped the Beatles moved to their psychedelic and folk era

88 In Utero - Nirvana
89 Selling England by the Pound - Genesis

Best Progressive album ever, and generally a great album, the music is just orgasmic.

Peter Gabriel in his best.

Better than Close to the Edge or Fragile. This is the undisputed best art rock album of all time.

Not only best prog album one of the greatest rock albums up there with zep purple and Floyd!

Great album

90 Slippery When Wet

I can understand Bon Jovi on a worst rock bands list, but on this list with The Who, The Beatles, Stones and Led Zeppelin?

Great album, should be much much higher

91 Exile on Main Street - Rolling Stones

In my humble opinion the best all round rock album of all time. The template for all serious bands..

92 Blow by Blow - Jeff Beck
93 Reckless - Bryan Adams

How does any whitesnake album get placed above this

94 Let It Be - The Beatles

Had a few hits and a few misses. Easily worse than its predecessor, Abbey Road. Despite these facts, it should be higher.

Love this album. Great songs

95 Toys In the Attic - Aerosmith

This is such a great album, the song "walk this way" has changed the music world so much!

#67? A travesty! Top 10 material.

96 Electric Ladyland - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Way to Low on the list. This album crashed through so many barriers it's impossible to list them here.

This should in in the top 5 greatest albums of all time.

Pure greatness

97 Led Zeppelin - Presence

Highly underrated album. Tea for One, Nobody's Fault but Mine, and who could forget Achilles Last Stand. The only dud on this album is Candy Store Rock, other than that this album is pure gold

Great instrumental work and production a very underrated album.

Best Zep album and best Zep song Achilles Last Stand...

98 Hunky Dory - David Bowie

David Bowie is one if not the best artist of all time and Hunky Dory my not be his best compared to The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars, it definitely should be up there in the top ten.

99 Infinity - Journey V 1 Comment
100 Houses of the Holy - Led Zeppelin
