The 25 most exciting rock albums ever (in my opinion)
Inverse midas "Good music should be celebrated, not cast to the Top 75."
"Eric Clapton's finest hour, this album was brimming with amazing guitar work."
Machine Head - 25th Anniversary Edition
"A rock masterpiece, 'Smoke on the Water' is still the opening riff I remember most growing up."
"The first proper metal album in my opinion, a constant reminder of how talented both Ozzy and Iommi were back in the day."
The Joshua Tree (Original Recording Remastered)
"If you don't own this album, you really should. It really is a true classic, with probably the greatest ballad ever written."
Slippery When Wet
"A must for anyone's collection, if only for 'Livin' on a prayer'."
"A surprisingly underrated modern rock album. Shame we didn't hear a lot more from them."
"The only album Curtis released when he was alive, you can hear hints of his impending suicide in the bleakness of this music. Hauntingly beautiful."
The Holy Bible
"Richey's parting note, 'The Holy Bible' is a masterpiece of rock that few could aspire to, mainly because of his own, very disturbing lyrics."
Led Zeppelin II
"The blueprint for albums some 40 years after its release, Jimmy Page plays guitar like so few others."
Going for the One
"Towards the end of Yes' prog peak, this was their best album by quite a long way, largely because everyone was returning to it afresh."
"The real masterpiece of the grunge movement, in many ways, Kurt's suicide makes this album even more gripping."
White Light / White Heat
"Very strange, relatively inaccessible 2nd Velvets' album. I think it's brilliant, but you have to prepare for discomfort."
The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars
"Bowie at his most perfect, so many bands cite this album as their greatest influence."
"Black Francis is a genius, and his music, although much better than those who emulated it, would be the root of grunge."
"Maiden's best, and one of those 'must-have' power metal CDs."
"A album that the 90s wasn't quite ready for, and the noughties are only just getting there. Superb indie."
The Remote Part
"The album that made Idlewild big, some of the songs on it are just beautiful."
Crack the Skye
"A real surprise in the modern rock scene, Mastodon's new album is everything you would expect from a stoner rock masterpiece."
Death Walks Behind You - Expanded Edition
"The Rooster at their darkest, but also at their best."
Aqualung (Special Edition)
"An album that would confuse on release, but astound years later. It's one of my favorite prog albums."
In Glass House (Rmst)
"The best prog band, with this, their best album. 'The Runaway' is a really exciting tune."
Without You I'm Nothing
"An album that gets overlooked often without good reason, this is the reason Placebo are still famous. Perfect record from start to finish."
The Downward Spiral
"An important record for rock in general, Trent Reznor would push so many boundaries in the years that followed with this CD."
Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs
"Arguably the most instantly appealing of Clapton's early records, I think it's awesome."
"The album that Weezer should have just followed in the vein of forevermore. Way more intelligent than anything else they recorded, and more enjoyable as a result."
