Judging what the best Music Album of all time is can be very subjective. What is, um, music to one person’s ears can sound like cat-scratching to others.
But when you consolidate every single BEST OF list into a single collaborative source… then maybe you’ve got something.
That’s the premise behind BEST EVER ALBUMS, where they have consolidated over 17,000 (yes, 17,000!) different Best Of music charts into one single, definitive listing of the BEST ALBUM EVER MADE.
Let’s take a look at the Top Ten:
- OK Computer, Radiohead
- Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd
- Revolver, The Beatles
- Abbey Road, The Beatles
- Sgt Pepper, The Beatles
- Nevermind, Nirvana
- Kid A, Radiohead
- Led Zeppelin IV, Led Zeppelin
- Funeral, Arcade Fire
- The White Album, The Beatles
Going deeper into the list, we see some favorites and obvious choices:
- Velvet Underground, Velvet Underground
- London Calling, The Clash
- Pet Sounds, Beach Boys
- Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyd
- The Bends, Radiohead
- In Rainbows, Radiohead
- In The Aeroplane, Over The Sea, Neutral Milk Hotel
- Highway 61 Revisted, Bob Dylan
- Doolittle, Pixies
- Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie
We don’t understand how Paul Simon’s GRACELAND comes in at #117.
We demand a recount.
