As perfect and cohesive as an album should be
I always think of dark side as a 43 minute song. but don't get me wrong with that
Its Awesome how all the songs work with such synchronicity talking about very powerful topics like Death, Madness, Time in human life, etc.
I Remember how i listen to this album every night in my student apartment and oh my god those were good times of discovering music, sometimes i started listening this at 10 pm, 12 pm, 3am and also go out driving alone with this masterpiece around the city at night
The Level of production is so high, you will think this record was recorded in 2021 (yeah its 2020)
Perfect Album that will start the first out of 3 Perfect Albums
Progressive Rock / Space Rock / Psychedelic Rock
Best Song: Time / Brain Damage / Us And Them [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
Best Hard Rock Album Ever
I mean come on, every song here is a 90-100 except for "four sticks"
I was at my 2 year in College when i arrive at my apartment and my roomie was listening to "Misty Mountain Hop" at madison square garden and for that moment Led Zeppelin blew my mind and change my musical experience because i wanted to know more and more and discover new genres, bands and artists
Member by member Led Zeppelin is the best band ever and this is their best work
Hard Rock / Heavy Metal / Folk
When The Levee Breaks / The Battle Of Evermore / Rock & Roll [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
The Best Album By the Best Band Ever
Its so amazing how in a span of 3 years they change from "Love me do" to "Tomorrow never knows"
This album has everything from Romantic Ballads to Art Rcok and Experimental
My only "disappointment" is that the singles "Rain" and "Paperback Writer" are not on the album
Nevertheless another masterpiece from the Fab Four
Art Rock / Baroque / Psychedelia / Avant Pop / Acid Rock
Tomorrow Never Knows / Eleanor Rigby / I'm Only Sleeping [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
Best Debut Album of All Time
Lou Reed and John Cale what a perfect and ahead of its time duo, From the Iconic album cover to the production of Andy Warhol and the amazing Art rock and Proto-punk songs that will shock you if you are in the mood
Track by Track a masterpiece that at time of release was real underground music and with cero praise
In my opinion no other album has influenced (Created) so many artists and genres than this one
Art Rock / Proto Punk / Avant Pop / Psychedelic Rock
Heroin / Sunday Morning / Venus in Furs [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
The Perfect Goodbye from the best Songwriting Partnership and the most influential band of all time
The 2 George songs are AMAZING, John Songs are Excellent but the Medley is Perfect, Paul is almost the responsible for the medley and almost all songs are from him, the song The End closer the greatest chapter in contemporary music history
Im not sure if this is better than Revolver, both are awesome albums
Progressive Rock / Art Pop / Rock
Medley / Something / I Want You (Shes So Heavy) [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
The Absolute Best Concept Album of All Time
A Bisexual Alien with no Gender comes to Earth to become a Rock Star When the planet only has 5 years of Life left and that's only the first 2 Songs !!!!
I Don't want to spoil you with the rest of the story so get your headphones and start listening, for those who knows this one you know what im talking :)
A perfect Record with some of the best songs of in my opinion the Best Solo Recording artist (Tied With Miles Davis i think)
You have to play the record, close your eyes and picture the 38:29 minutes of Creativeness Bowie have with this one because the recorded this and Hunky Dory in just 1 Year!!!
Thank you For all Space Man
Glam Rock /Proto-Punk
Ziggy Stardust / Five Years / Moonage Daydream [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
For the majority of BEA user's this is the best album of all time
And I cant disagree that much, perfect transition from "The Bends" to a real artistic statement for Radiohead
I just cant get enough of this album and this is not even my favorite album from them, (In Rainbows is) almost perfect record from start to finish, so many emotions, so many different songs and styles, the music here is just AWESOME and the lyrics will let you thinking, absolute CLASSIC
Art Rpck / Experimental Rock / Progressive Rock / Alternative Rock
Paranoid Android,/ Subterrain Homesick Alien / Exit Music (For A Film) [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
The Best Rap Album EVER
Kendrick Showed here he is a living Genius
Lyrically theres no better Hip Hop album, the Fusion Between Jazz and Rap is Mind Blowing, everything flows so perfectly that you dont realize this thing is 80 minutes long until you check your clock when the album is finish
The Guests here are LEGENDS !!! I mean George Clinton, Snoop Dogg, Flying Lotus, Pharrell, Dr. Dre, Kamashi Washington, Thundercat, etc .
In a no distance future this will be regarded as on of the Best Albums of All Time
Experimental Hip Hop, Progressive Rap, Jazz Rap, Neo Soul, Conscious Hip Hop, G-Funk
The Blacker The Berry / King Kunta / These Walls [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
Happiness, Sadness, Isolation, Death , this album has everything.
For me this is the best Thom Yorke vocal achievement, you can feel the emotions the song is trying to give you till the first second.
Every Song here is so good but the most important thing is how this songs interacted with each other to form the album atmosphere until the last second of Videotape.
Incredible how 10 years after the band "Masterpiece" Radiohead comes out with this another "Masterpiece".
Art Rock / Experimental Rock / Art Pop / Electronica
Weird Fishes Arpeggi / Nude / Reckoner [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]
This is the album that for a period of time put The Beach Boys (Particulary Brian Wilson) tied with Lennon/Mccartney in terms of musicianship and taking the music in the mid 60's forward creating some all time classics
This is what happens when a genius stop touring and focus just 1 year in a music studio trying to create the ultimate album, the vocals here are so precise, so well crafted, its difficult to believe this album has almost 56 years with some of the greatest songs ever i mean who doesn't like God Only Knows????
Composed, Produced and arranged by Brian Wilson with help of Tony Asher
Art Rock / Psychedelic Pop / Chamber / Progressive Pop
God Only Knows, / I Just Wasn't Made For These Times / Sloop John B [First added to this chart: 11/12/2021]

Top 100 Greatest Music Albums ratings
av = trimmed mean average rating an item has currently received.
n = number of ratings an item has currently received.
m = minimum number of ratings required for an item to appear in a 'top-rated' chart (currently 10).
AV = the site mean average rating.

|Rating||Date updated||Member||Chart ratings||Avg. chart rating|
Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some charts can have several thousand ratings)
This chart is rated in the top 2% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 91.1/100, a mean average of 89.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 94.1/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 22.3.

Hey man, I've come back to this chart a second time and it gets a perfect 100. I love your introduction and the huge respect you've given to the artists, producers and collaborators that made this amazing music possible and brought so much joy to our lives. You've clearly put a lot of work into this, there's an awesome personal touch to it and I can relate totally to your stories within. I've also got some great tips off this chart - whilst there are plenty of well-know classics - and you share much of the same tastes as mine - there are quite a few I must give a listen, and it's really helpful that you've listed all the genres/sub-genres covered in those albums. Love this!
A really great chart a great mixture of classics and genres ... well done !
Very classical chart. Fine.
Your liner notes are well informed, personal, characterful and warm hearted,
No surprise that everyone gives you a good rating.
So do I.
Great chart. Would have appreciated more obscure picks that are uniquely you.
Mucha música similar, pero sí extrañé más artistas de habla hispana. Sin embargo se entiende que hay que traer a cuento un ch1ng* álbumes clásicos que yo dejé fuera. ¡Saludos, man!
Only the third overall chart that I have given 100. I absolutely love this chart and the comments add a nice personal touch. Great job
Good effort in this chart.
