Greatest albums of all time (IMHO)

A Listmania! list by M. LLOYD "markipoos999" (Bedfordshire, UK)
(REAL NAME)   
 
The Wall
1.  The Wall by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "Simply outstanding from start to finish. Roger Waters may be many things, but he is a genius - fact. Exudes intelligence, irony & emotion. Sometimes hard on  delicate ears. The last great Floyd album."
£24.04   Used & New from: £2.89
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (353 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Amused to Death
2.  Amused to Death by Roger Waters
The list author says:
  "A very special album. Mr. Waters' greatest solo work (to date anyway!). Positively dripping in irony and bitterness. No easy journey, but most certainly worth going along for the ride."
£26.38   Used & New from: £3.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (103 customer reviews)

The Downward Spiral
3.  The Downward Spiral by Nine Inch Nails
The list author says:
  "Trent Reznor's greatest work. At times in your face, then introspective, then mellow. A beautifully dark album"
£4.70   Used & New from: £2.12
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (92 customer reviews)

O
4.  O by Damien Rice
The list author says:
  "A million miles away from my usual tastes. This album genuiunely moves me. Exquisitely beautiful and melodic."
£6.08   Used & New from: £0.24
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (242 customer reviews)

Word Gets Around
5.  Word Gets Around by Stereophonics
The list author says:
  "Believe it or not, Stereophonics used to be a rock band. A superb debut. Infectously catchy songs each commentating on a slice of smalltown life in Wales. Unlikely to be surpassed by the boys."
£4.80   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (106 customer reviews)

Wish You Were Here
6.  Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "Yes, more Floyd. In my opinion beter than 'Dark Side...', but only just. 'Shine On' is Roger Waters' greatest composed work, period."
£13.99   Used & New from: £1.44
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (464 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Back to Bedlam
7.  Back to Bedlam by James Blunt
£6.47   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (456 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Fragile
8.  The Fragile by Nine Inch Nails
The list author says:
  "Yes OK. I like Floyd and NIN. But that's because they're both very good. Reznor's most conceptual album is tremendous, but still not quite as good as its predecessor."
£7.56   Used & New from: £2.30
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews)

Marbles
9.  Marbles by Marillion
£29.99   Used & New from: £2.98
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (71 customer reviews)

Floodland
10.  Floodland by The Sisters Of Mercy
The list author says:
  "A bit o' goth. Good goth. Before it was cliche to sing like a sea-lion. This album IS atmosphere. Proof that goth was (and is) cool. Nuff said!"
£8.69   Used & New from: £1.52
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Lateralus
11.  Lateralus by Tool
The list author says:
  "A modern hard rock masterpiece. When other acts were scratching, rapping or churning out the same damn pop-rock under a different name, Tool were re-inventing the rule book again. Complex & rewarding."
Used & New from: £3.98
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (154 customer reviews)

Bat Out of Hell
12.  Bat Out of Hell by Meat Loaf
The list author says:
  "I grew up with this album and 'In Rock' by Deep Purple. Meatloaf wasn't always a self parody. He used to perform outstanding songs written by a truly great composer (Jim Steinman). A rock classic."
£5.99   Used & New from: £1.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (306 customer reviews)

Brave
13.  Brave by Marillion
The list author says:
  "Marillion's pinnacle. Technically flawless. Emotive and thought provoking. Atmospheric & moving."
£6.59   Used & New from: £4.08
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

More Than You Think You Are
14.  More Than You Think You Are by Matchbox Twenty

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

Vision Thing
15.  Vision Thing by The Sisters Of Mercy
The list author says:
  "A different, more immediate Sisters. A more hard rock angle. God, how I miss 'em! ... Incoming!"
£9.00   Used & New from: £1.34
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Darkest Days
16.  Darkest Days by Stabbing Westward
The list author says:
  "An impulse buy I was not to regret. Take Nine Inch Nail's dark industrial twist and add a dash of 'The Crow' and lovingly garnish with an American College radio immediacy. Great."
£19.98   Used & New from: £0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

17.  Something To Be by Rob Thomas

Jagged Little Pill
19.  Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morissette
The list author says:
  "Probably the most commercial album here. But you see, this really is very good. Forget the piss taking and jokes. These are very good songs by an interesting atriste, who has recently returned to form"
£4.95   Used & New from: £0.13
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (155 customer reviews)

The Real Thing
25.  The Real Thing by Faith No More
