Greatest Albums of the '60s

The Top Ten

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

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! - rock2metal

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

Can we get this off first place? It’s actually not that good... I don’t even think it’s the best Beatles album, or 60’s album. Also why is the entitle list composed of pyshcadslic or pop rock? There are so many other genres that had amazing albums in the 60’s. John Coltrane, Miles Davis, The Ronnetes just to make a few

2 The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground

The greatest album of all time

3 Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys

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

4 Are You Expirienced - Jimi Hendrix

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

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.

Want blues? You've just got it! - rocknrolldude

30 Days of Wine and Roses - Andy Williams
31 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.

45 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.
