Wow, you guys are old. Don't get me wrong, my friends' parents turned me on to a lot of the bands that have mentioned here, but there has actually been some great music put out since the 70's.

Plus, everyone knows that Master of Puppets is the greatest cassette tape of all time.

Hey, I'm only 44. I just like good music. While all my friends were jamming to Metalica in 1988 I was diving into the Allman Bros and Steely Dan.

Anyone who thinks SD sounds like "elevator music" hasn't listened to anything but a few songs that hit the radio once in a while.

I've been putting together a decent sound system in my pub room and it simply blows my mind the sound quality SD was able to produce in the 70s.

I get some of you guys have "Bud Lite" music pallets. ;)

Believe me, my brother has played a couple of their whole albums trying to convince me that I should like them. I just don't care for it and I like a lot of different music genres. I have hundreds of albums and CD's and also played in 3 different bands in the 90's. I make my own music and rarely play covers (Bud Lite). ;)

same and same.

i lol'd.

I dont have any siblings, but my best friend growing up, who lived across the street, had an older brother and we used to sit in his room and listen to all his favorite music so at an early age we were exposed to a lot of Janis Joplin, The Doors, Stones, The Who, Yes, Neil Young, Steve Miller, Hendrix, Jethro Tull, etc etc.

This really shaped my music preferences until MTV hit the scene in the early 80s.

Any list that doesn't include Flood by They Might Be Giants is suspect.

Found some free time these days, eh Keith? ;)

No vinyl.  Where is this going.  I need proof to like Ween and own their Cd's?

CD's aren't albums.

I don't believe that is true. Albums are collections of songs. As defined by the Oxford English Dictionary: "A collection of recordings issued as a single item on CD, record, or another medium." Merriam-Webster also states that. Album as a word for a collection of recorded songs pre-dates vinyls.

Animals was great but The Dark Side of the Moon remained in the charts for 741 weeks (0ver 14 yrs!) from 1973 to 1988 with an estimated 50 million copies sold.  I recently saw Black Jacket Symphony reproduce it live sound for sound note for note. Perfection.

I would have to say the best album of all time would be a toss up between

CCR - Cosmos Factory
Rolling Stones - Get Yer Ya Yas Out
Aerosmith - Rocks
Amboy Dukes - Tooth Fang & Claw
Neil Young -  Everyone Knows This is Nowhere
Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited

And of course:

Buck Owens and the Buckaroos - Live at Carnegie Hall.

There are many other great albums that suffer one terrible song that gives it a fatal flaw (for example:  Abbey Road = Maxwell's Silver Hammer).  The ones I listed above* might have one somewhat weak track, but otherwise are flawless.

*There are no weak tracks on Get Yer Ya Ya's Out

Obviously none of you have a vinyl copy of Gaucho.

I did, but it didn't survive a purge when I moved across country.

If I had to pick one, it would probably be Countdown to Ecstasy, for the killer guitar work
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

CD's aren't albums.

I own Chocolate and Cheese on vinyl, which is obviously better than The Mollusk anyway.  Cheers!

Lately, I would say Red Headed Stranger by Willie Nelson. Not a bad note on the whole album.

Answering the "Best Album" question always feels like being asked to "pick my favorite kid". 

I've heard albums I didn't like but many, many more that I thoroughly loved at one point or another.  I can never choose just one.

Thomas Edison - Mary Had a Little Lamb

His later works were too commercial. What a sell out.
