Abbey Road could be #1 overall.

There's still not a single Beatles album on my list and not likely to be one added either

There are two Beatles albums on my list.

I love the Beatles, but pretending as if their albums are my "all time favorites" is a bit of a stretch as I essentially haven't listened to them since I was 18. The White Album will likely make my list, but it'll be relatively low on it.

I think "classics" can kinda get stale, boring, and dated after you've heard them a billion times. That seems to happen for me at least.

That's my other choice. And it's #15.

Bleh. The indie underground always sings that album's praises, but seriously, just because there are more good songs on it than there are songs on Revolver doesn't mean that it has a strong ratio in that area. Out of 30, I'd say 17 are pretty good.

Revolver is massively, massively overrated. Only a handful of good songs really.

The White Album makes the cut on my list, and I went with OKC, In Rainbows and The Bends for Radiohead, and leaning towards attyclub as my third U2 after the two classics.

Speakerboxxx/The Love Below elmel... this counts as one double album yes?

Also going thru Coldplay... and it appears that X&Y may miss out, with Parachutes at this stage likely to top the list. It's fantastic. No hang-ups, no stupidness, better lyrics, no inflated sense of self-importance, just an honest young new band trying to make a good album.

I have to because I totally own that album

it won't be making my list though

however back in the day it would have been in my top 10

Also like 90% of my albums will be from this decade. that's just what I listen to.

Um...I have like three ordered so far. how the fuck else am I supposed to order the rest? I can't even pick a top ten. It's hard because there are albums I've been listening to a lot recently, so I'm biased towards them, but they've yet to withstand the test of time for me

I do love The Beatles, but I love them on songs rather than albums basis. Rubber Soul would probably make it if it was a top 100 list. Radiohead would maybe just scrape in into top 100, as well.

I spent some time agonizing which three Pink Floyd albums to include and whether I liked Piper at the Gates of Dawn more than Animals. In the end Piper got the third spot after all.

I have been considering using Sgt. Pepper, but it'll probably miss out.

"Only a handful of good songs" is how I rate The White Album. I hardly ever listen to the second disc - too many songs I have no interest in listening to.

I can't stand about half of the first disc, honestly. Shit like Don't Pass Me By is completely unlistenable, and 3-4 others are only marginally stronger. I love the second disc though. Birthday, Sexy Sadie, Helter Skelter, Long Long Long, Revolution 1, Cry Baby Cry...classic stuff.

I have a questionable album on my list (no, it's not Britney Spears, har har har). Is it acceptable to use an original cast album from a musical? Particularly one that was first a "concept album" before it was actually a show?

Are you referring to the cast version of Tommy? Because that does have a couple of original tunes in it.
