Okay so I checked the mail yesterday and what did I see but a Rolling Stone staring at me. The cover was unique in what it said. The Top 500 Albums of All Time kept sticking in my head. So, I asked myslef, hmmm I wonder what the ipodloungers would think. So, lets discuss your top 10 albums of all time:

Mine are:

1. Pearl Jam-Ten
2. U2-Joshua Tree
3. REM-Automatic for the people
4. Bruce Springsteen-Born to Run
5. Nirvana-Nevermind
6. The Beatles-"The White Album"
7. The Who-Who's Next
8. Led Zepplin-Led Zepplin
9. The Clash-London Calling
10. The Beach Boys-Pet Sounds

Top Ten

My personal top ten, in no specific order.

Kyuss - Sky Valley
Primus - Frizzle Fry
Simon and Garfunkel - Live: 1967
Pink Floyd - Meddle
In Flames - The Jester Race
Frank Zappa - Apostrophe
A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders
Metallica - Master of Puppets
Fu Manchu - In Search of...
Monster Magnet - Self Titled EP

Thats just personally and from where I'm at now. Ask me 6 years ago It'd would probably be all Metallica/Pantera/Slayer Albums.

1) Stone Roses - Second Coming
2) Jimi Hendrix - Hendrix in the West
3) The Faces - A Nod's as Good as a Wink
4) Rolling Stones - Some Girls

Jacko,

I know what you mean, I had to really think about my top ten. After I made my post, I was thinking of more and more albums that are great that would easily be in my top 50. What gets me is hos to rank the album. What is that all time favorite album, the one you listen to at least a couple of times during the week, if you use that critieria.

Yes, I agree. But I had little trouble with my top two, which I do return to again and again and again, and have done for years! It's too early to say with BRMC, but I think it may come into the Top Ten on a permanent basis.....

PS: Why 'London Calling' and not 'On Broadway', which gives you 'Combat Rock' as well?
The first album which introduced me to The Clash was 'London Calling'. It hold a lot more sentimental value. It just happens to be one of my favorites.

BRMC is in my top 25 at the bottom, it is slowly working its way up my chart.

Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street (or Sticky Fingers)
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
Jimi Hendrix - Are you Experienced?
The Harder They Come Soundtrack
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin (or PG, or LZ 4, or LZ 2, or HoH)

My next ten,

REM - Automatic for the People
Nirvana- Nevermind
Grateful Dead - American Beauty

And the next ten:

Anything more recent is just too new to be that high on the list, but may move up over time.

I'm disappointed to see that "Grace" by Jeff Buckley only managed a fourth place in the third top ten selection. This has to be one of my favourite albums of all time. It certainly is a classic in my opinion.
But then what is my opinion worth...

considering I hadn't heard it until maybe 6 months ago, it has moved up my list with amazing speed. and each group of 10 is in no order.

Although I strongly disagree, I respect your opinion. However I think bands like Linkin Park, Creed and Nickelback are just corporate ##########s. Please don't take offence as it is only my opinion.

I can't come up with a top ten though because there are so many great albums. It would probably include Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon and Metallica - Master of Puppets :)
