Greatest Albums of the '60s

The Top Ten Greatest Albums of the '60s

1 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles

Lol people think this is the best album ever, but it’s Bad. The only good song on it is Lucy in the sky with diamonds and SGT peppers lonely hearts club band

Really people? Are you judging the album by its content or by what the cover looks like? (Axis bold as love does have a sweet looking one...) Without this album we wouldn't have rock as we know it today. Hendrix may have been able to play with his teeth, but that's just for a show, not a studio album. Well, I guess this is a lost cause. What can I reasonably expect from a group of 30 seconds to Mars fans anyway?

I don't hate Jimi Hendrix, but this album is MUCH BETTER!
Come on! THE BEATLES! This band made better the music!
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is a perfect album because all of its songs are great!

Shame on you guys, I'm ashamed that nobody put this one in the top 5, if not in the the top spot

2 The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground

It's awesome to see this album at number 2, but it would be even more awesome if it was number 1.

The greatest album of all time

3 Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys

Should be second, one of the most perfectly-made albums of all time. The Beach Boys are the greatest!

This is the greatest album of all time, let alone the 60's.

4 Revolver - The Beatles
5 Led Zeppelin II - Led Zeppelin
6 Are You Expirienced - Jimi Hendrix

The greatest debut album by the greatest guitarist, this one is better than axis:bold as love

7 Abbey Road - The Beatles
8 Led Zeppelin I - Led Zeppelin
9 Highway 61 Revisited - Bob Dylan
10 Rubber Soul - The Beatles

Favourite album. First time the Beatles really started getting great.

So many to pick from yet this album, along with "Revolver" were in the top three Beatle albums.

Possibility the greatest album ever recorded.

The Contenders

11 The Doors - The Doors
12 Beggars Banquet - The Rolling Stones
13 Let It Bleed - The Rolling Stones
14 Axis: Bold as Love - Jimi Hendrix
15 The White Album - The Beatles

This needs to be higher.

16 Aftermath - The Rolling Stones
17 In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson

21st Century Schizoid Man 5/5
I Talk To The Wind 4. 5/5
Epitaph 5/5
Moonchild 2. 5/5
The Court Of The Crimson King 5/5

Best album of the 60s easily. There is not much to say beside it. All the songs sre masterpieces and the album is incredibly influential in rock progressive rock and heavy metal. Beside the point that influence should not reflect the quality of a album. This albun is simply untouchable especially albums from the 60s.

18 Tommy - The Who
19 A Love Supreme - John Coltrane
20 If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears - The Mamas & the Papas
21 Trout Mask Replica - Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
22 West Side Story Soundtrack - Various
23 Blonde on Blonde - Bob Dylan

Should be No1 Dylan was the 60s biabh should be No2 the most important albums of all time the Beatles would still be writing teenie pop if not for Bob Dylan

24 More of the Monkees - The Monkees
25 Blue Hawaii - Elvis Presley
26 The Sound of Music Soundtrack - Various
27 Surrealistic Pillow - Jefferson Airplane
28 Between the Buttons - The Rolling Stones
29 Days of Wine and Roses - Andy Williams
30 We're Only In It for the Money - Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention
31 Mary Poppins Soundtrack - Various
32 Electric Ladyland - Jimi Hendrix

How could anyone forget one of the most influential albums of the 60's. I would also say that this has a WAY better album cover than any of the Beatles' by a long shot. The music on here would definitely kick the Beatles butt BIG TIME. Hendrix influenced everybody, Pink Floyd, The Stones, Led Zep, you name it. This is probably Hendrix's best album lyrically and instrumentally.

48 In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly

Makes you wanna dance. It also has one of the best long rock songs ever, the whole-b-side-long title track. This is psychedelia in its truest form.
