Top Ten Classic Rock Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Clockwork Angels - Rush

This album was made when rock was no longer the mainstream, therefore it will never be appreciated as it should be. This is Rush at their best! To produce some of your best work in your 38th year together is unheard of. If you have never listened to this masterpiece you are missing out! I honestly think this album should be much higher on this or any list. But the fact that a concept album released in 2012 is even on this list speaks volumes!

142 High Voltage - AC/DC
143 Permanent Waves - Rush

Great album! My personal favorite of Rush.

This cite just hit a new low. I get how this is a people's voted cite but there are umteen million deep purple albums in the top twenty and all the rush and Van Halen sits at rock bottom. Not cool

144 Straight Shooter - Bad Company
145 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

146 House of Blue Light - Deep Purple
147 Hotter Than Hell - Kiss
148 Waiting for the Sun - The Doors
149 Demons & Wizards - Uriah Heep
150 Run With the Pack - Bad Company
151 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.

152 Plastic Ono Band - John Lennon

Incredible album... Raw, and powerful!

153 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.

154 Look at Yourself - Uriah Heep
155 As Your Mind Flies by - Rare Bird
156 Overnite Sensation - Frank Zappa


so great!

157 801 Live - 801
158 Flying - UFO
159 Manassas - Stephen Stills

Double album and not a bad song in the bunch.

A stunning 2 record set - one of the most underrated albums ever

160 Diver Down - Van Halen
