Ranker Video 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 that there are works that rise above the rest and go down as the best albums of all time, regardless of their genre. 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. From Diamond-certified albums to the most popular albums ever, this list has them all.

If you see an album that should be listed here, be sure to add it! And to really impact this list's order, rerank it to add your own version of how these albums should be ranked. 

So what are the best albums ever? How about the top albums of all time? Vote now!
