The greatest ablum of all time. All the songs on this album are good, Foreplay/long time, Something about you, and Peace of Mind are all AMAZING, while More than a Feeling is one of the greatest songs of all time. - TheOnlyLabz

Such an underrated great album! - ahmedaser

72 Electric Warrior - T. Rex

T. Rex is one of the most underrated rock bands of all time. Marc Bolan is the best.

73 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John

Great double album from a man who was the dominating music artist of the seventies at the prime of his career. Album produced Bennie & the Jets-1st white singer's song #1 on R&B chart: Candle in wind-#1 selling song of all time. Also hits like Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Saturday night's alright for fighting the best intro songs of all time, Funeral for a friend/love lies bleeding just about every song on double albun was edgy and great. -
