One of the best albums ever made. With an estimated 45 million copies sold and 15 platinum certifications, peaks this album to third position on the list of best sold albums ever! This should be at least at third position! Great songs, not only because the sound, but for the lyrics- talking about live and death, the way we live. Excellent concept album. Best songs? All of them.

10 Van Halen I

This album should be in the top 10.

Apart from the fact that the extremely talented Michael Kiske was the band's vocalist at the time (A vocalist with a 4 octave vocal range all of which he's able to hit in FULL voice. )

It's got some beautiful melodic leads riffs (that were surprisingly original at the time. ) some rather complex thrash styled riffing as well as a solo style that not only influenced EVERY Power metal band after them but most modern CLEAN heavy metal guitarists. - technicalbrutaldeath
