Whether you’re a fan of rock, blues, R&B, or pop, there’s an album for you. And the best albums are the ones that stand out from the crowd. This list is a compilation of the best albums of all time, as selected by music fans around the world. You’ll find the most popular Grammy Award winning full length projects, and you’ll discover the most popular diamond certified albums.
The Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list, which ranked the top 500 albums, was first published in 2003. This list tallied more than 300 votes from music industry professionals. The list has remained popular since then. It’s updated annually, and now includes today’s emerging musicians.
The Rolling Stone list has expanded since its original release. Last year alone, 63 million people read the magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. It’s a snapshot of the music world. You’ll find several gems on the list, including the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds, Bob Dylan’s trilogy, Pink Floyd’s The Wall, and Who’s My Generation.
The album that was rated the best of the 500 is not really the Rolling Stone 500’s best. In fact, the Rolling Stone’s 500’s list was only released after the magazine re-created its own list of the best 100 songs of all time.
The Rolling Stone’s list is not only the best album of all time, but also one of the best lists of all time. The list’s top ten best albums are listed below.
