Top Albums Of 1972

Gonna have to go up to 20 pretty soon!
Close to the Edge

It was between this and Genesis' 'Foxtrot'. Could have went either way. However, I've always liked Yes more than Genesis, and I think this album is a bit more solid musically.
9 Freddie Hubbard
Sky Dive

This one isn't quite as good as the some of the stuff he released while on his colossal run of albums from 66-70, but his cover of The Godfather theme is well worth the listen.
8Charles Mingus
Let My Children Hear Music

Mingus with another high quality release, this is amongst the best Third Stream albums ever made.
7Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Pictures at an Exhibition

I'm a big fan of Pictures at an Exhibition to begin with, so having ELP do it was magnificent.
6 David Bowie
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

I'm sure I can't say anything about this album that hasn't already been said. It's my favourite Bowie album.
5Pink Floyd
Obscured By Clouds

I've always thought of this album as one of Pink Floyd's best, even though I think I'm in the minority. I don't know what it is, there's something about it that gets me every time. The riffs are memorable and it doesn't seem to drag at any point.
4Steely Dan
Can't Buy a Thrill

I think this is the most poppy of this group's work, that said I think it might be their best. Super laid back, this album flows fantastically.
3Frank Zappa

My second favourite of Zappa's fusion records. 'Big Swifty' is basically Zappa playing Bitches Brew, which is absolutely mind blowing.
2Frank Zappa
The Grand Wazoo

Maybe my favourite Zappa fusion record, this one has it all. Fantastic performances and genius song writing, the three song run of 'The Grand Wazoo', 'Cleetus Awreetus - Awrightus' and 'The Big Question' can't be beat.
1 Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath Vol. 4

Black Sabbath is about the best band in the world, and this is my second favourite release of theirs. Super heavy, Bill Ward is at his groovy best, and aside from a couple brain farts (FX and Changes), every song is absolutely fantastic.
