Best Albums of all time

Recommended Posts

Oasis' 1994 debut album, Definitely Maybe, has been voted the greatest album of all time in a music poll.

 

The album, which featured hits Live Forever and Supersonic, beat the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band into second place.

 

Some 40,000 music fans were asked to name their favourite work in a survey by the book of British Hit Singles and Albums and NME.com.

 

Fans could make their own choice, and did not have to select from a list.

 

The survey marks 50 years of the Official UK Albums Chart.

 

 

10 BEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME

1: Definitely Maybe - Oasis

2: Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles

3: Revolver - The Beatles

4: OK Computer - Radiohead

5: (What's the Story) Morning Glory? - Oasis

6: Nevermind - Nirvana

7: The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses

8: Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd

9: The Queen Is Dead - The Smiths

10: The Bends - Radiohead

 

British Hit Singles and Albums editor David Roberts said: "Usually these polls are full of records that people have only just bought because they are freshest in the mind.

 

"But this poll shows that the truly great albums always have longevity.

 

"Only two albums in the Top 20 were released in the last five years, so the voters have clearly thought long and hard about their decision."

 

Up the Bracket, the 2002 debut by Pete Doherty's former band The Libertines, was the newest album in the top 20 in 15th place.

 

Only two albums by US bands appeared in the top 20.

 

Nirvana came sixth with Nevermind and The Strokes were 20th with Is This It.

 

Definitely Maybe, which cost £85,000 ($158,000) to produce, was released in August 1994 and topped the British chart a week later.

I love zep, but that is one average live album.

 

How The West Was Won is awesome and is knocks it into a tin hat. Only took 20 or 30 years.

U2 have done some terrific songs, not sure a single one of their album rates as an all time great though.

That's MUCH more like it. Stuff like Oasis etc.. is judged more because it's what people can remember, IMHO. I would say Check your head above Pauls Boutique though, despite Eggman being on there. :lol:

A lad in my class at school used to go to their concerts, so I compiled a list of things so I had a few bits and pieces to rip the piss out of him. Who'd have thought that 13 years later they'd come in handy. :rolleyes:
