System Of A Down - Toxicity, Mezmerize, Hypnotize... no S/T!?!?

Worst list ever.

The whole argument is entirely subjective.

They need to define the "best" album. Is it the ones which sold more? Or the ones which a specific person prefers?

There will never be an entirely accurate list, as far as I'm concerned. Music is based entirely around opinions.

too much metallica. i like metallica, but they're not that good.


plus it's mostly metal bands. there's more music than metal, people.

smashing pumpkins at least deserve to have an album in the top 100.


and how could they not have queen?

Unfortunately that's how it is. I would have loved to see DSoTM in the top 10 but it didn't make it.

Mötley Crüe !
Hendrix !
No Santana ?
No wish you were here ?

At the very least wish you were should have been on there, with gilmour it'S the finest, dark side is understandably more popular, but The Wall before wywh ?

I guess they removed live cuts from the choices, since pulse would have been the very king of floyd's cuts on there.

Same with RATM, live at the grand olympic auditorium's pretty epic.

Opinions anyways, biaised, as every list will be, face it, make your own or crash on someone else's couch.

EDIT: As said, NO QUEEN ?!? Put at least bohemian rhapsody's single on there, they deserve it.

I'd say let's make a list of the ones really deserving of the title of ''music great'' and it's going to shorten out really fast to small-scale picking pools in each style.
I love music, if music would be a girl then I'd date her, until then let's get back on Earth

i mean, dark side of the moon IS a top album.. Its sold more records than anything on that list, the votes were taken by a young crowd. Its really terrible, one of the worsts lists i've seen lol

i'm sorry that list sucks theres no way metallica should be at number 1 over iron maiden or pink floyd

Popularity does not equal quality, look at what's popular today it doesn't mean it's good. Letting people vote on the albums that get put on the list won't make the list any better people will just vote for their favourite albums that's why you have crap like Rammstein in the top 10.

Seeing as there can never be a 'perfect' list, and music will always be subjective, it isn't really fair that you dismiss someone else's tastes as '****'.

edit: unless you could provide a link to a good 'best album' list?

I never understood why MoP is so highly rated in these top album lists. It's not even close to the best metal album ever, and is significantly worse than Rust in Peace (which I think is the best thrash metal album ever).

So why do you determine whats good and not them?

Don't people think it's closed-minded to say the 100 best albums of all time are limited to rock & metal, and their respective subgenres?

Sure, a few of those albums are great, but to completely exclude anything that isn't rock or metal is just bigotry.

For once I think that one these official lists things is good. It's not exactly how I would put it, of course, but I like a lot of the things in this list.
