Except Guns 'N Roses are not Classic Rock (directed towards the threadstarter), so it looks as though you need a new number one and number five selection. :)

Anyways... This is very likely to change, but at the present moment...

1) Machine Head - Deep Purple
2) Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin
3) Idlewild South - The Allman Brothers Band
4) The Yes Album - Yes
5) The Wall - Pink Floyd

^ Why do i need a new number 5 selection? AC/DC is classic rock....
ok and if your not including gnr, then move them all up and add zeppelin III

That's what I meant. Guns 'N Roses doesn't count for Classic Rock, so that would mean you would have only had four albums.

Well, I guess you don't need a new fifth favorite, considering you didn't give an actual number, but I'm assuming that you want our top five favorite albums.

I'm not saying that AC/DC isn't Classic Rock - they definitely are, just that Back in Black would then be considered number four, rather than five.

However, it seems as though you guessed that's what I meant, but I just wanted to clarify.

I don't think I'll ever be able to make a favorite list of all time. Tastes change of course, but enough about semantics...

No order:

The Kinks - The Village Green Preservation Society
The Beatles - White Album
Love - Forever Changes
The Pretty Things - S.F. Sorrow
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
The Byrds - Notorious Byrd Brothers

Yeah, it's six, I couldn't decide between the last two.

Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles
Piper At The Gates Of Dawn - Pink Floyd
