|My 30 Favourite Albums Of All Time|
Albums that didn't quite make the list: Frank Zappa - Apostrophe', Judas Priest - British Steel
Diary of a Madman
List needed some Randy Rhoads somewhere. Ozzy's best solo album.
Crack the Skye
First Mastodon album I heard. Better than Leviathan in my opinion.
Lightning to the Nations
Guitar riffs. Guitar riffs. Guitar riffs. Oh did I say guitar riffs?
The Number of the Beast
One of the best metal albums of all time. Gangland and Invaders keep this album from being high on my list.
|26||Guns N' Roses|
Use Your Illusion II
This and Use Your Illusion I were amazing. They were the biggest band in the world in the early 90s in my opinion. Until Nirvana happened that is.
Love the bluesy feel of this album. One of the greatest rock albums of all time.
Piece of Mind
I like this album a little bit more the The Number of the Beast because of the drumming. Clive Burr was awesome but Nicko is better in my opinion.
Vulgar Display of Power
Pantera's biggest album had to be on this list somewhere.
Led Zeppelin II
Just a great album.
This is also another one of the greatest metal albums of all time. And it is their magnum opus in my opinion.
Rush's greatest prog rock effort.
Houses of the Holy
Another great album by Zeppelin.
Reign in Blood
They say quality is better than quantity, and this album epitomizes this. A short album but man does it pack a punch.
|17|| ||Pink Floyd|
Dark Side of the Moon
One of the greatest albums of all time regardless of genre, and it definitely is a classic.
Cowboys From Hell
My favourite Pantera release. Phil at his peak vocally. Dime is the most metal person ever. RIP DIME
Master of Reality
Black Sabbath's heaviest album of all time. The riff of Sweet Leaf has to be the heaviest thing ever recorded. And yes it is heavier than Funeralopolis or anything Electric Wizard has done.
Ride The Lightning
This used to be my favourite Metallica album. Creeping Death is my favourite Metallica song however
|13||Guns N' Roses|
Appetite for Destruction
Easily the greatest rock debut of all time. Not a bad song on this album.
Most people would say this is the best Iron Maiden album of all time. And a case could be made, however there is one album I like more than Powerslave.
This has my favourite song of all time: Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Led Zeppelin IV
Led Zeppelin's best album in my opinion. BETTER than Physical Graffiti. Love Bonzo's drumming on When the Levee Breaks.
Wish You Were Here
A great album with a great story behind it. Syd walking in while they were recording is an awesome story. If you haven't seen it yet, check out The Story of Wish You Were Here dvd.
Master of Puppets
Often praised as the greatest metal album of all time. That definitely could be true.
|8||Alice in Chains|
The greatest grunge album of all time hands down.
Magical Mystery Tour
Everyone always talks about Sgt Peppers or Revolver or the White Album. This album surpasses them all.
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
Iron Maiden is my favourite band of all time. This album is my favourite of their because it combines prog rock and metal perfectly.
THIS is their best album. I wish there was a follow up to this album. (Let it Be does not count)
Prog rock at its finest.
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
In my opinion, this is the album where Ozzy was at his peak vocally. I love the strings on this album, and the more complex arrangements compared to their prior albums
Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
Amazing musicianship, and it tells an awesome and entertaining story.
Rust in Peace
This has everything you could possibly want with a metal album. Its heavy, it has great guitar playing, and its got great drumming. Rust in Peace > Peace Sells
