Top Ten Classic Rock Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Highway 61 Revisited - Bob Dylan

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

82 Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf

Perfect album. Best vocalist in all of rock.

This should be in the top twenty or higher!

83 In Utero - Nirvana
84 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..

85 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.

86 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

87 Dirt - Alice In Chains

It is so far a head for me as my favorite album that I can't actually think what would be second, Incredibly powerful and moving album-not for the faint hearted.

You may think this is the finest pearl.

If you haven't listened to this LP...DO IT

Unique! A masterpiece

88 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

89 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

90 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.

91 Reckless - Bryan Adams

How does any whitesnake album get placed above this

92 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.

93 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

94 Infinity - Journey V 1 Comment
95 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...

96 Houses of the Holy - Led Zeppelin
97 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath

The beginning of heavy metal, unbelievable album

98 Doolittle - Pixies

Why isn't this top 25? I say this only cause it's innovative and Genius and doesn't get much attention while albums like Nevermind are just a imitation of this masterpiece Doolittle. Pixies>Nirvana

No album is flawless...Except Doolittle.



99 All Things Must Pass - George Harrison
100 Innuendo - Queen V 1 Comment
