The Best Classic Rock Albums Of All Time – Shared By 32 Rock Artists and Musicians
Let me start by saying that I LOVE lists! However, this is probably one of the more difficult Top 3’s I’ve ever considered. Three of the best classic rock albums of all time? Subjective and debatable for sure, but here are three that should be on any classic rock album list.
1. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles
No ‘best of” list would be complete without a Beatles record.
For me, I have to put ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ on this list. While I understand and accept a ‘White Album’ argument, I feel that Sgt. Peppers is a more fantastic “start to finish experience”.
In this case, less is more. In fact, if Strawberry Fields was to be on the album, I could envision it as possibly the greatest album of all time.
2. Led Zeppelin – IV.
Arguably the greatest pure rock and roll album that ever lived. This double diamond-certified album played as the soundtrack to millions of people in the 70’s. I have three words for you: Stairway to Heaven.
3. Back in Black by AC/DC
I changed my mind a dozen times for my third choice. I went in between ‘Rumours’, ‘Dark Side of the Moon and ‘Hotel California’. In the end, I decided on the AC/DC classic ‘Back in Black.
If you have any doubts, go immediately to your favorite streaming platform and queue up the title track. If that doesn’t get your blood flowing, nothing will.
