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

This Yanni discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Yanni albums can be found at the top of the list. Since he's such an influential artist, let’s rank the best Yanni albums, with the help of your votes. Considered one of the leaders of the '90s New Age sound, Yanni debuted with Optimystique (1984) to little attention, but peaked at number two with his fourth album, Chameleon Days (1988).

To make it easy for you, we haven't included Yanni singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Yanni 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 Yanni album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
