Greatest Albums of the 70s

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Arrival - ABBA
42 Cheap Trick - Cheap Trick

One of the most underrated, yet greatest debuts in rock history. This album had everything--suicide, pedophilia, sadism, mass murder, prostitution and hell-raising all done in a satirical manner and with crunching riffs. Cheap Trick were way ahead of the punks and other bands with this blistering debut.

43 Miss Gladys Knight - Gladys Knight

Gladys should be in top 3 - much better than The Jackson 5 or Heart! - Alexandr

44 Alive - Kiss

Come on people. THIS SHOULD BE NO. 1! - kissrules!!!

45 Toys In the Attic - Aerosmith
46 Destroyer - Kiss
