Well, hey, even out of her prime, she still sounds better than most pop stars nowadays.

42 21 - Adele 21 - Adele V 1 Comment
43 The Joshua Tree - U2 The Joshua Tree - U2

This is one of the greatest albums of all time. Achtung Baby is more overrated.

55 Art of Life - X-japan Art of Life - X-japan

It's said to be the greatest song in Japanese music history and maybe even the best song ever. Well, it isn't. The guitar riffs are repetitive; if they weren't, the song would be at least half shorter. The piano solo is chaotic, it's more of random banging the keybord than music. I realise it's supposed to depict life as it is, but music can be dramatic and harmonic in the same time, so using a classical instrument to make some noise is unnecessary. And yes, this part could also be shorter with benefit to the whole thing. I downloaded it looking for a work of art. What I got was some decent riffs and some unnecessary noise. Not so amazing for the greatest song ever written. - saaarsdej

x-japan is everywhere and the song is the only track in the album buy the live video instead - ronluna

56 Back in Black - AC/DC Back in Black - AC/DC

Way off track, after Bon died one would think that AC/DC would call it quits, but no! This album is a triumph to the testament that AC/DC is. Back in Black deserves it status as one of the greatest rock albums of all time!

57 The Fame - Lady Gaga The Fame - Lady Gaga

People hate thriller just because it's the best selling album ever and the sales were really high. Thriller is not overrated but this one definitely is

A person won't hate an album for how much it sells, and calling something overrated does not mean a person hates it. Overrated is when something is given too much hype.

58 Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin
59 Horses - Patti Smith Horses - Patti Smith
60 Turn on the Bright Lights - Interpol Turn on the Bright Lights - Interpol
