Top Ten Classic Rock Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Overnite Sensation - Frank Zappa
142 801 Live - 801
143 Flying - UFO
144 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

145 August and Everything After - Counting Crows
146 Diver Down - Van Halen
147 House of Blue Light - Deep Purple
148 Demons & Wizards - Uriah Heep
149 Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton - John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers

Simply put, the best pure blues-rock album ever created. This album features perhaps the best guitar work Clapton ever did. THAT is saying something.

150 Disraeli Gears - Cream

The first notable power trio and likely the best one as well, Cream was never better than they were when they produced Disraeli Gears, an amazing acid rock album featuring one of the greatest rock songs of all time, Sunshine of Your Love. Then again, its hard to expect less from from a trio like Jack Bruce on bass, Ginger Baker on drums, and the might Eric "Slowhand" Clapton on guitar.

Easily the best and also the first big power trio, Cream was never better than when they produced Disraeli Gears, the perfect acid rock album, and also an album worthy distinction for featuring one of the best rock songs of all time, Sunshine of Your Love.

151 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!

152 Hotter Than Hell - Kiss
153 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
