List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

While they didn't achieve great commercial success, The Jam made some great music throughout their fairly short career. Here, you'll find a complete list of the best Jam albums, including every studio release with pictures of the album covers. This Jam discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Jam albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included The Jam singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Jam album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Jam album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
