These albums are all masterpieces. I guess the only question is:
"Which one's the greatest of them all?"
You can help answer that by voting.
I'll probably run this poll until the end of the year before declaring an official winner.
Thanks for your votes!
The greatest album of all time, in a more objective sense, would probably be either Sgt. Pepper's or Pet Sounds; however, the ones I enjoy the most are Screamadelica and Sign 'O' The Times.
The first list was good. The second list? Magnifique.
I tried to vote again, but it said I couldn't... I got sad. But then again, I think I voted for the same album, so I guess I don't have to vote again.
This is wierd...it won't let me clear the votes.
Do you know how to clear the votes?
I've pressed it and saved about 5 times now and it doesn't seem to be working.
I'd like to give everyone a chance to re-vote, if that's even possible without making an entirely new post.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou.
Sorry about the poll problems! When I deployed that feature there was a flurry of activity but then they fell into disuse, so they haven't been as thoroughly debugged as they should be.
I think I found the bug. If you still want to, give "clear votes" another try and let me know if that does the trick.
I have absolutely no idea. I've never done a poll...
I wish I could help you! But I've got nothing. Perhaps it takes awhile to make that kind of change.
I haven't voted yet - I'm holding out for you to include Abbey Road. If not, I'll probably vote for Pet Sounds over the Beatles.
Well, Jen I can't include Abbey Road unless I add about 15 or 20 others before it, so here goes...
I'm convinced now.
But don't ask for anymore (:
I must say that there are not near enough albums on here to be considered the greatest of all time. You need a Pink Floyd rep, Carole King, and Fleetwood Mac to name a few. But, thats just my opinion.
Sure, I could've included many, many more.
I decided to break the entries down in to the few albums I considered to be at the very, very peak of rock history.
If the list was expanded to 40 or 50 entries "Rumours" would've made it, as well as "Dark Side of the Moon". And perhaps Carole King's Greatest Hits collection or something of the sort.
But, as I said before, I think these 12 albums alone represent rock at it's best and most influential. There are hundreds of other great albums, but few can be argued to share the same perfection and artistic creation that these do.
...except for "Kind of Blue" by Miles Davis.
I recently "discovered" this album and I can say with certainty that it is among the top 5 albums ever made. A flawless masterpiece.
I recommend it to anyone who enjoys music (!)
It won't matter if you like jazz or not. Besides its the best starting point possible, as it is probably the greatest jazz album ever made and certainly the most influential. Pick it up ASAP.
I am in agreement. In addition, as a jazz neophyte, I found "A Love Supreme" by John Coltrane to be a complete revelation. The album is electric, completely and totally alive.
I have to add this one now, don't I?
Yes. Yes, you do.
So far with only seven votes, listologists have made this a dead heat!
Pet Sounds, Revolver, and What's Going On all share the top spot with 2 votes each. Blonde On Blonde not far behind with 1 vote.
Anything can happen...
Keep voting! Thank you.
If Ziggy Stardust had been on here, the results would be at least a little different.
I hear ya, AAA
Ziggy came close to making it but not quite.
A few other "honorable mentions" that would've made a more comprehensive list are:
"Let It Bleed", "Never Mind the Bollocks", "London Calling", "The Beatles", "Abbey Road", "The Stone Roses", "OK Computer", "Nevermind", and plenty more.
