I got tired of most of the classics that are mentioned so far. So I'm going with Kid A as well. So far it's been impossible for me to get tired of and everytime I play it swear I love it just a little bit more. But it's definitely a close tie with OKC, my two favorite records of all time.

What's yours?
I think what the original poster is asking here is "what's YOUR single greatest album of all time" and not what is "THE SINGLE GREATEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME."

Seriously, asking people to name the single greatest album of all-time, out of the thousands upon thousands of albums out there is impossible.

But people here are posting their "all-powerful, awe-inspiring, god-smacking album" which is why people are choosing OKC or Kid A. Music is subjective.

For me, my single greatest album of all-time is Achtung Baby. Every song is a good one and it never gets old, no matter how many times I've listened to it. Sometimes, I feel like this is an album that should be coming out now. For me, it was trully ahead of it's time. But is it THE single greatest album of all-time? Again, that is an impossible question to answer.

BTW, Utoo you never stated what is your album?

Even the threads about guilty pop pleasures or thrash death metal.

Definitely. Let's turn this thread into a militant anti-Radiohead thread

The single greatest album of all time? Everything ever released that wasn't by Radiohead!

I kid, I kid.

In the true spirit of the thread ... I'm having a hard time picking my own personal "single greatest album of all time."

I'm waffling between:

The Joshua Tree
Revolver
Achtung Baby

Although it's hard for me partially because I'm not so much an "album girl." I'm all about the singles and a great song. I'm not the best person to say "this album flows really well" or "what a cohesive work of audio art!"

Now I feel like changing my answer to Achtung Baby. Really, it's hard to answer this question. It could be any of the following:

Abbey Road
Achtung Baby
Joshua Tree
Automatic For The People
The Bends
Little Earthquakes
Kid A
...............

Granted, we're all 80s, 90s or 00s kids so people that grew up, say, in the 60s or 70s may laugh at these replies.

Even though I'd like to admit that we try to look at every decade to arrive at the decision, theres always a bias to what you grew up listening to!

I always have a hard time trying to decide whether Achtung or Automatic is the better album. I definitely have a closer personal attachment to Achtung, and Zoo TV really puts it over the edge, but Automatic is such a sublimely beautiful, eclectic, near-perfect masterpiece.

Both are keystones of 90's popular music.
