Top 25 Albums

Just my personal 25 favorite. After the first 10, it's not strictly in order.
1Jimi Hendrix
Electric Ladyland


What's there to say? Hendrix's finest work, breathtaking, and undoubtedly my favorite.
2The Beatles
Rubber Soul


I'm not sure what about it, but this has always been my favorite Beatles album.
3Jimi Hendrix
Are You Experienced


Not far behind Electric Ladyland, and nearly as amazing - that's not an insult to Are You Experienced?, but more a testament to the greatness of Ladyland.
4The Band
Music From Big Pink


Another history-changing album. Possibly the greatest organ-based rock album, no one can beat Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel.
5John Coltrane
A Love Supreme


One of the greatest jazz recordings ever, and my favorite of Coltrane's.
6Santana
Caravanserai


Not Santana's most famous, but I think it's just as great a musical feat as the three that came before it (Santana, Abraxas, and Santana III). Also my favorite.
7 Marvin Gaye
What's Going On


Just a great album, Gaye's finest - what's not to love about it?
8Charles Mingus
Mingus Ah Um


My favorite Mingus album, which classics like "Better Git It In Your Soul," and "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat."
9Television
Marquee Moon


One of the most underrated masterpieces of all time. Truly an amazing piece of work, not a single song that's not at least very very good.
10The Beatles
Revolver


Sgt. Pepper is a slightly better album, but I like listening to Revolver more.
11They Might Be GIants
Apollo 18


I can easily say one the best bands of the last 20 years. And this is their best album.
12The Clash
London Calling


The Clash's "Magnum Opus," and for good reason. Another album with no real bad songs in it.
13Talking Heads
More Songs About Buildings And Food


Not only does it have one of the best covers of all time, but it has most of their best songs.
14Jimi Hendrix
Axis: Bold As Love


Really doesn't deserve to be as low as 14th, but the list is pretty packed. Hendrix just couldn't go wrong.
15The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground and Nico


Probably only slightly less influential than Sgt. Pepper in shaping the course of Rock and Roll. Amazing.
16Santana
Santana


Santana's first album, full of songs impossible not to like. Worth it just for "Soul Sacrifice" alone.
17The Velvet Underground
Loaded


Even though this was after Nico AND John Cale left, making it essentially Lou Reed with a backup band. Still some fantastic songs, though.
18Miles Davis
Bitches Brew


20 minutes, so what? I wouldn't mind if the songs were all 40 minutes long.
19Bob Dylan
Blonde On Blonde


Packed full with greatness. "Your Leopardskin Pillbox Hat balanced on your head just like a mattress balanced on a bottle of wiiiiiiiine."
20Bruce Springsteen
The Wild, The Innocent, And The E Street Shuffle


Springsteen's most underrated album? The average track length is 7 minutes, but every song is great.
21Blind Faith
Blind Faith


So they weren't THE GREATEST SUPERGROUP OF ALL TIME, but they were one of the first and best, perhaps my favorite.
22Derek and the Dominos
Layla and other assorted Love Songs


What is it with Clapton and not being able to stick to one band for more than three records? Still, another classic.
23The Who
Tommy


The Who's best. Can't go wrong with the Underture.
24 Elvis Costello
This Year's Model


I would very hesitantly put this ahead of "My Aim Is True," but they really are interchangeable, they're both great. "Aim" is probably #26.
25Ramones
Ramones


One of the greatest debut albums of all time, this INVENTED punk. No song is longer than 2:30.
