Best Rock Albums of All Time (Excluding Greatest Hits)Hannibalbarka
The Contenders: Page 9
This album is epic. It should be In at least the top 50s - Sabbath
About half of the bands on this list grew up with posters of The Doors and Jim Morrison tacked up on the wall in their bedroom, basement, or garage.
From Billie Joe Armstrong's swagger, to Freddie Mercury's theatrics, to Kurt Cobain's sullen countenance, to Axl Roses' leather pants; it all started with Morrison.
This should be in the top ten in my opinion
Released in 1974, Queen throughout their long a career were amazing, classic and awe-inspiring though if you include this album in the essence of Queen (Which it Is) it will make Queen truly the most wide ranged Rock Act ever. Queen II is a Progressive Rock/Rock Opera/Heavy Metal Classic and was beyond perfection. Led Zep iv and Dark Side of the Moon are outstanding but this is better, Father to Son has Led Zep, The Who, Pink Floyd and wonderful Heavy Metal and Deep1970s toms. White Queen is an outstanding emotional epic, the harmonies and chords and instruments make the songs so emotionally powerful and you feel it. Someday One Day is a lovely Guitar Ballad with wonderful Guitar Sounds, Classic harmonies typical of the 70s, and different drumming and unique. Loser in the End features Bonhamesque drumming and Ogre Battle was the creation of Speed Metal. The Fairy Feller's Masterstroke is an Art Rock inspired piece. Nevermore is an outstanding tear dropping Piano and Vocal Ballad from ...more
First of all, Thriller is not rock, and A Night the opera is on here twice.
This is just fantastic, best rock album of all time (well, rubber soul would be my first, but it's not on here.
Just listen to march of the black queen and the fairy fellers master stroke, and you'll reasile nothing else can match this albums courage, diversity, and the bands pure talent
Classic and Musicaly Sheer Brilliant
Great Rock, listen to Khashoggis Ship, Was It All Worth It and I Want it All
The Rock album of the 1990s
X Japan is one of the most underrated bands out there, so it is only logical that their best album, Blue Blood, is one of the most underrated albums out there. This album contains some of their most beloved material, such as "X," "Enless Rain," "Rose of Pain," and the title track, "Blue Blood." The songs range from aggressive speed metal to emotional, classically influenced power ballads. The band even includes an experimental interlude track and an epic that's longer than your average SpongeBob episode. What's not to love?
