Top 50 Albums Ever

simply put, my favorite albums (as of March 29th 2007)
1Thrice
Vheissu


Never has any band ever been able to combine raw power, pure emotion, and a huge atmopshere into one album until Vheissu was released. Very few, if any blemishes at all on this album make it my number one ever.
2Megadeth
Rust In Peace


My favorite album for a long time, and it still is one them. Probably the definitive thrash/speed metal album, it features only one weak track. Holy Wars is one of the greatest songs ever, and Marty Friedman's lead guitar really pushes this album over the edge.
3Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here


I can't really say much about this album that hasn't already been said. A must have for any fan of rock music.
4Guns N Roses
Appetite For Destruction


So Guns N Roses gets a lot of hate but they still released one of the greatest (if not the greatest) debut album of all time. The energy on this cd is unmatchable by any band, thanks to Izzy and Steven Adler's rhythm section and Axl's loud, abrasive vocals.
5Joe Satriani
Surfing With The Alien


Easily the greatest instrumental album ever recorded. Also, the best driving music ever. I am amazed at how Satch creates such catchy melodies all the time, and then he still comes at us with an emotional ballad to close the album on a high point.
6Pink Floyd
Animals


One of the more underrated Pink Floyd albums, but yet it contains three of the band's best songs ever. And when the album only has three true songs (plus and intro and outro track which are both good as well), it is obviously going to be one of the best.
7Dream Theater
Images And Words


So many might place Scenes From A Memory here instead of this album, but I think Images and Words is their best. The touch of Kevin Moore really puts this one above all others, as we can see in Learning To Live and Wait For Sleep.
8The Misfits
Earth A.D. / Die Die My Darling


20 minutes of pure, uncut energy.
9Green Day
Dookie


Such a classic album and was easily my favorite when I was growing up. Still is a great album and reminds me of just how great this band used to be. The essential punk/pop-punk album.
10Metallica
Master Of Puppets


Whether or not you hate Metallica, most understand that this is a great album. Orion anyone?
11Joe Satriani
The Extremist


Another one of the greatest albums, this one has a more mature rock feel to it but yet experiments nonetheless. Joe really shows off a lot of his rhythm work on this album and it never fails to shine.
12Iron Maiden
The Number Of The Beast


Another essential metal album, and I think most would agree. Featuring the essential Hallowed Be Thy Name, it is a must have.
13The Offspring
Smash


If Dookie is not the essential punk/pop-punk album, then this is. The title track is definitely the best pop punk song of the 1990's. And I'm sure we all know Come Out And Play and Bad Habit, don't we?
14Led Zeppelin
Physical Graffiti


If Disc 1 was released as just one album alone, it would have #1 on this list.
15Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium


Uh-oh! Heres something some will disagree with. But hey, I love it, it seems to be a perfect blend of the styles shown in BloodSugarSexMagik and By The Way.
16Foo Fighters
Foo Fighters


Maybe the most underrated album of the 90s?
17Greg Howe
Introspection


Modern jazz fusion at its best.
18The Cure
Disintegration


I don't think I need to explain why this is on here.
19Oasis
Whats The Story Morning Glory


A simply amazing album with all sorts of good songs. Morning Glory and Don't Look Back In Anger are two of my absolute favorites.
