Top 10 Albums OF ALL TIME

The other day I asked my Twitter followers what their Top 10 albums of all time were.  Carnage ensued, and everyone went mental, trying to pick only 10 and moaning that they wanted it to be a top 20 – Hey I don’t make the rules, I just asked the question.... well, I suppose I did make the rules, but I am the Queen so just deal with it.

Anyway, I have had more time to deliberate this matter, and I think I have come to the following conclusion:

1.     Nirvana - Nevermind
2.     Biffy Clyro – Only Revolutions
3.     Arcade Fire – Funeral
4.     Oasis – What’s the Story, Morning Glory?
5.     Foo Fighters – In Your Honour
6.     Coldplay – Parachutes
7.     Kings of Leon – Youth and Young Manhood
8.     Guns & Roses – Appetite for Destruction
9.     Muse – Black Holes and Revelations
10.   Red Hot Chili Peppers – Greatest Hits (CHEATER)

I think that is adequate.  There are HUNDREDS of albums that I love that haven’t made it into my Top 10, but I have based it on being able to listen to these albums THOUSANDS of times without getting even remotely bored of them.  A bit of a change now but a few of my other favourites are 8701 by Usher, Crisp Biscuit Volume 1 by Heartless Crew, Thriller by Michael Jackson, Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morissette, The Immaculate Collection by Madonna... I could go on for days.

I know I cheated by putting RHCP's Greatest Hits but I literally could not pick 1 album, and if I had more choice I would probably include every Foo Fighters album in there too.

Don’t even ASK me to put my top 10 albums into order – that’s too much for my brain to handle at this moment in time. 

What are your top 10 albums?


  1. Oooh, good post!

    In no particular order:

    The Beatles - Abbey Road
    Basement Jaxx - Rooty
    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
    Kelis - Kaleidoscope
    Purple Rain - Prince
    Does It Offend You Yeah - You Have No Idea What You're Getting Yourself Into
    Black Eyed Peas - Behind The Front
    Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense
    Lupe Fiasco's The Cool
    Daft Punk - Alive

    No indie in sight! I like pop, dance and a bit of hip hop.

    RHCP isn't in my top ten but I think my favourite album is By The Way.

  2. Ooooh Fleetwood Mac - Rumours is a good one, and Prince - Purple Rain.

    By The Way is awesome but if I had a gun to my head I might pick Stadium Arcadium! *controversial*

  3. Only liked Jupiter, not Mars so much. Dani California is an excellent song.
