Top 10 Albums of All Time
Hi AEE Universe I’m Robbie.G and I am a huge music guy. I grew up listening to all kinds of music from rap to country and rock to pop music. If it sounded good to me I would listen.
Just so everyone gets a chance to know me I compiled a list of my top 10 music albums of all time!
Now this list is my opinion and not necessarily the opinions of any of my other dudes that work for AEE!
Let us know in the comments your favorite albums of all time of any genre but for now, here is mine from Number 10 all the way down to Number 1 so here we go….
10. Garth Brooks- The Hits
Sometimes with artists, it’s all about the greatest hits album! This album had it all, singles like Thunder Rolls but my favorite was Friends In Low Places but not just the regular version it had the mysterious 3rd verse! That was the reason for this pick for me!
9. Justin Timberlake- Future Sex/Love Songs
In his second solo album, he shows the world he is more than just a boyband star. He also brings Sexy Back! That was not the only great song he had on the album. He rocks it out with T.I. on My Love, he slows it down on Until The End Of Time, and gets you Love Stoned! This album definitely a top 10!
8. Eminem- The Eminem Show
Slim Shady makes the top 10 twice on my list. This album had Em Cleaning Out his closest and an Em/Dre duet on Business! This album was his 3rd mainstream studio album and it was just as amazing as the first too!
7. Beatles- Let It Be
This group can make the argument they are the first boyband in pop music history the title track Let It Be is still as popular in 2020 as when it was released! Not one bad song on this album, heck an argument can be made that the Beatles have never released a bad single period!
6. Michael Jackson- Thriller
How can you have a list without this iconic album, I mean yes I guess you can argue Prince was better than MJ or vice versa but honestly not only did this album launch the title song Thriller into Halloween Superstardom but here is the list of hit singles till played at weddings or parties. Wanna Be Starting Something, Bad, PYT, and Billie Jean! This is very iconic in my book!
5. Metallica- Ride The Lightning
This is before they went to rock when they were heavy metal and if you are a Metalhead this album did not disappoint! Only 8 songs but besides the title track Ride The Lightning a few more singles have turned into greatest hits including For Whom The Bell Tolls and Fade To Black!
4. Guns N’ Roses- Appetite For Destruction
If you want a potential greatest hits album just go buy this! Songs today still played on radio….usually classic rock radio lol are Paradise City, Welcome To The Jungle, and of course the hit of the century Sweet Child O’ Mine!
3. Queen- Greatest Hit I II & III The Platinum Hits
What can I say about this album if you like a song it will 99.9% be on this album. With Queen, every song is a greatest hit! Just like in the movie Office Space I celebrate the band’s entire collection!
2. Eminem- The Slim Shady LP
When this album came out we thought “who in the heck is this white boy that is trying to rap?” Well those of us that had no clue that even though this is his first mainstream studio album, he had already made one back in Detroit. This Album was 20 cuts deep and had two huge radio/video hits in My Name Is and Guilty Conscience a duet with the greatest producer and now Record Label owner Dr.Dre!
On top of that this album has classic bangers Just don’t give a F**k, Still Don’t Give A F**k, Role Models, Rock Bottom, and the shocking ’97 Bonnie And Clyde where he and his daughter Haylie drive around looking for somewhere to dump his wife her mother’s dead body that was in the Trunk! Great album, showed his crazy side and launched the Slim Shady we all grew to love!
1. 2pac- All Eyez On Me
This album came out fresh out of jail as Pac said in California Love! This was his fourth and second to last album that he recorded before he was gunned down in Las Vegas. All Eyez On Me was the first double album in Hip Hop history and went 7 times Platinum!
The four biggest singles off the album were California Love with the amazing Dr.Dre, How Do You Want It feat. R&B group Kci & Jojo, 2 Of Americaz Most Wanted feat. One of the greatest Snoop Dogg and I Ain’t Mad At Cha which was released two days after 2pac died on September 15th, 1996. Amazing album for those who never heard it go pick it up and listen to it!
