actually, i think there's one on the second page right now with this same topic.
"We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment"

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

I voted the white album, but thats not even the beatles best. The GREATEST album ever is Bob Dylans blonde on blonde, or highway 61 revisited.
#16
The White Album? It wasn't that great, Magical Mystery Tour was better. As for the greatest album of all time, I really can't choose.

You'd have to set standards for what makes an album ''great'', then debate, and that would be long and painful. You can't just list some classic albums YOU like and ask us which is the best of all time from that. How about none? Greatest album is personal.
#19
Why is there no "other" option..? It's definitely not one of the listed albums in my opionion. I can't even think of a favorite album.

revolver? dark side of the moon? where? Axis Bold as Love is probably the most underrated album by hendrix so I'm glad u put it up there but even if its underrated idk if its the best by him.
#25
I didn't vote.

My two favorite albums are Blood Sugar Sex Magic by RHCP, and Aja by Steely Dan. Actually, Two Against Nature by Steely Dan too.

A lot more goes into an album than is usually considered. Not only the songs on the album, but also the song order and flow, inside booklet, album cover, mixing and mastering, etc.

Therefore, considering all those things would take a vote from a group of hundreds of people who respect and enjoy every genre of music equally, and also have varying, respectable tastes in art, as well as educated in sound acoustics/audio engineering, and, for that matter, literature and storytelling.

There is no best album ever, however you may have a favorite album, or like aspects of an album.

I'm somewhat a fan of The Prodigy, and I think their album name "Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned" is pretty sweet. There are other aspects of the album that also appeal to me. However, I also think most of the songs on the album are mediocre, save for a few.

On the opposite side of the picture, the album Odyssey by FischerSpooner has a terribly generic symbol as their album cover, and the rest of the packaging is pretty dull, but you can tell they poured their heart and soul into making every song sound good. The mixing stood out, even if there were a few just downright weird songs.

Just a few examples, but a Greatest Album Ever title can probably never be sincerely given out.

None by the White Album comes closest.

For me its either "Who's Next," "Abbey Road," or "Sgt. Pepper."

Ok all you people who just post that there should be more choices and that there should be other genres, y dont you list some examples, and motley crue is up there because they area damn good band.
#31
Pink Floyd is the greatest band in the whole list. Where the hell is Rush?
#32
Since there are no best albums only favorites my favorite of the list is a tie between Led Zeppelin and The White Album.

But my favorite albums are
Kid A, Amnesiac, OK Computer, The Bends, Hail To The Thief-Radiohead
Devil and God are Raging Inside Me-Brand New
Everything Starts Where It Ends, Pretend You're Alive-Lovedrug
As Tall As Lions-As Tall As Lions
Evaline-Postpartum Modesty. A Portrait of Skin
Carnavas-Silversun Pickups
Vheissu-Thrice

Quite the list, but I couldn't only choose one.

  • Bold As Love
  • Blood Sugar Sex Magik


Beautiful albums.
