The Greatest Albums of All Time

This is a list of the greatest albums of all time, created and ranked by music fans worldwide. Music is as subjective as any art form, but most people can agree there are works that rise above the rest. This is not a list of your 'favorite' albums, but a list of the 'greatest' albums. Whatever your musical tastes, vote and rank the albums you think had the most impact on music, the most influence on culture and other musicians... the greatest relevance to their genre.

If you see an album that should be listed here, be sure to add it! And to really impact this list's order, add your own version of how these albums should be ranked. You can also explain your choices for the best albums of all time in the comments section below.
