The Top 25 Greatest Albums Of All-Time (must purchase!!!!)

The 25 Greatest Albums of All-Time are (in order, with commentary on the top 5):

1)"London Calling" (The Clash): The only album I've ever listened to (out of thousands and thousands) that does not have even mediocre song on it. Every single song on the album is amazing. The pinnacle of the Strummer/Jones partnership.
2)"Who's Next" ( The Who): Townshend's original project, Lifehouse, was too ambitious, but this album which came out of the failed project was the greatest album of the 70s. My absolute favorite song of any genre is on this album, "Won't Get Fooled Again".
3) "Revolver" (The Beatles): Solid throughout. Harrison shows his own talents at songwriting, a nice addition to the already solid Lennon-McCartney songs.
4) "A Love Supreme" (John Coltrane): Absolutely beautiful and spiritual album from the greatest Jazz saxophonist ever. A triumph in every sense of the word.
5) "Exodus" (Bob Marley and the Wailers): Time magazine voted this album the greatest of the 20th century. Songs like "One Love", "Three Little Birds", and "So Much Things To Say" help make it the greatest reggae album of all time.
Numbers 6-25 don't have commentaries. That would take too long.
6) "Pet Sounds" (The Beach Boys)
7) "Rubber Soul" (The Beatles)
8) "Plastic Ono Band" (John Lennon)
9) "Live at Folsom Prison" (Johnny Cash)
10) "What's Going On?" (Marvin Gaye)
11) "Tommy" (The Who)
12) "It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back" (Public Enemy)
13) "Live at San Quentin" (Johnny Cash)
14) "The Joshua Tree" (U2)
15) "The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars" (David Bowie)
16) "Magical Mystery Tour" (The Beatles)
17) "Their Greatest Hits: 1971-1975" (The Eagles)
18) "The Beatles (White Album)" (The Beatles)
19) "The Clash" (The Clash)
20) "Burnin" (Bob Marley and the Wailers"
21) "Quadrophenia" (The Who)
22) "Kinks" (The Kinks)
23) "All Things Must Pass" (George Harrison)
