Top Ten Classic Rock Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Tales of Mystery and Imagination - Alan Parsons Project
122 Learning to Crawl - Pretenders

Great guitar work, great writing - Monster.

123 Fair Warning - Van Halen
124 5150 - Van Halen
125 The River - Bruce Springsteen
126 Strange Days - The Doors

When the Music is Over is amazing. Great album.

127 Bridge of Sighs - Robin Trower

Often forgotten or simply seen as a Hendrix clone Robin Trower is oh so much more than that.
Bridge of Sighs is one of my favourite rock albums and the synergy between the guitar, bass and drums are perfectly complimented by the husky yet powerful voice of the late James Dewar.
If played on vinyl this recording by one of the Great Power Trios works almost perfectly; grab a copy, give it a listen and enjoy this underrated album.

128 Bad Company - Bad Company
129 High Voltage - AC/DC
130 Straight Shooter - Bad Company
131 Live at Leeds - The Who

Although the song "magic bus" seams to go on for 20 minutes, this is one of the best live albums of all time in my taste.

Best live album ever. The Who at the top of their game

132 Waiting for the Sun - The Doors
133 Moonflower - Santana
134 Run With the Pack - Bad Company
135 Aja by Steely Dan

Deacon Blues and Aja alone would put this in the top ten

136 Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black Sabbath

This album is amazing and should be on this list. I think #2o position would a good spot. This has a otherworldly sound that stands alone and I'm glad that it does and always will.

137 Plastic Ono Band - John Lennon

Incredible album... Raw, and powerful!

138 Pampered Menial - Pavlov's Dog

This, their debut, as well as follow-up 'At the sound of the bell' are two of the finest albums of the 70's, sadly terribly overlooked, in fact, almost ignored. David Surkamp has one of the most amazing voices, but it's a bit of a case of love it or hate it.

139 Look at Yourself - Uriah Heep
140 As Your Mind Flies by - Rare Bird
