So, the best albums of all time. many say they are arguably the best. Here they are:
Pet Sounds - Beach Boys
Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles
Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin
The Wall - Pink Floyd
Wildflowers - Tom Petty
Pearl Jam - Ten
These are the ones I hear most brought up in discussion.
Pink Floyd - Yes, 2 entries in the group. Dark Side of The Moon stayed on the top 200 list forever. Part of it had to do with people rebuying it on cassette, and Cd after vinyl.
The Wall - Hell, you heard it, great tracks laid out, great story telling. Journey into Roger Waters mind and see what makes him tick.
Pet Sounds - Wow, amazing album. Tracks include Sloop John B, God only Knows, Wouldnt it be nice and many others. Drove Brian Wilson mad trying to reproduce this album.
Sgt Peppers - Changed the face of Rock music as we know, and the Beatles did it for the 2nd time. Tracks include: When I'm 64, Sgt Peppers, A day in the Life, Lucy in the Sky. Beginning to end fantastic music.
Led Zeppelin IV - When the Levee breaks, somethings got to give and give it did. Zep's best album(IMO). Going to California, Stairway to Heaven, Battle of Evermore.
Pearl Jam - Groundbreaking album. Launched Grunge onto the scene in the early 90's. Evenflow, Jeremy, Oceans, Alive. A generation of musicians follwed them and still do.
Tom Petty - An odd one here, but tis album just plain old kicks ***. Wildflowers, You dont know how it feels, Its good to be king, Honey Bee. Deny this alum and you could be denying your passage to Heaven.
So, whats your opinion. Which of these alums is the best ever and why? I say you cant pick just one. I know I cant.
