Funny, I've been scrolling through and thinking that U2 deserve a mention. Without a doubt, that would most likely be 'The Joshua Tree', but I also think that 'Achtung Baby' is a phenomenal album. At their New Year's Eve gig in The Point Depot 1989, Bono said they just needed to go away and 'dream it all up again', but I doubt anyone would have predicted the sound that they came back with. The sound that came with the release of 'The Fly' was completely unexpected. A masterful re-invention that most bands are/have been completely incapable of.

Going back to the original post, I had to check twice. No one mentioned "Dark Side of the Moon"- Pink Floyd.
With over 50 million records sold , it is one of the best selling albums of all time and certainly had a big musical influence on me.



I nominated it back in the middle-ish of page 2.

For me, I lean towards The Stones and as was mentioned (and arguably their best "Let It Bleed") but I would like to suggest "Some Girls" for overall album from them. More tunes from that album still seem to be played more than any other and the diversity of the tracks just great. I also would have a hard time ruling out Led Zeppelin, in particular the 4th album as well. My personal favorite tune to listen to is When The Levee breaks! Just love that song for some reason... the drums, then harmonica intro... Awesome! But overall, I think Beatles Sgt Peppers will ALWAYS end up No. 1 for reasons that remain obvious.

Bob-Timing is everything, and the right topic!

Some truly great live albums have been recorded, let me mention for consideration "One For The Road" by The Kinks (fantastic album)! and "Strangers In The Night" by UFO! Rocks like no other, especially for its time.

I agree on Strangers in The Night, but I think that live concert albums (which are essentially Greatest Hits albums) aren't a fair comparison.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.
