- Pink Floyd - The Dark Side Of The Moon. £7.86. Year: 1973. After the initial Syd Barrett-inspired success of their debut album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, it took a while for Pink Floyd Mk II to find their feet.
- Led Zeppelin - IV. £9.98. Year: 1971. Arguably Led Zeppelin's finest moment, this was the record with the perfect blend of what made them one of the greatest bands of all time.
- The Beatles - Abbey Road. £6.99. Year: 1969. The last music recorded by the band with Sir George Martin, Abbey Road was created in a far-from-ideal environment for the Fab Four.
- Led Zeppelin - II. £15.76. Year: 1969. It’s very hard to pick a second Led Zep album for this list, to stand alongside IV, but II just about gets our vote.

- 'The Decline of British Sea Power' by British Sea Power. - Metascore: 86. - User score: 8.8. - Release date: Sept. 9, 2003. While the name of the debut album by British Sea Power may have set low expectations, the unconventional album earned rave reviews from critics.

While there are other albums that might be more consistently good all the way, IV/Zoso reaches such unbelievable highs that it's comparable with some of the Beatles' best work. It covers so many genres (blues, rock n' roll, folk, prog, stoner, math rock, and metal) but remains consistent and seamless all the way through.
- Rolling Stones, Exile on Main St. (1972) Oh, Exile on Main St., you charming decadent mess. Of your 18 tracks, only one of them was really ever a hit, the sauntering “Tumbling Dice.”
- Led Zeppelin, Physical Graffiti (1975) If you ever came across a poor soul who had never heard a Led Zeppelin song and they asked what the band were all about, this should be the go-to record for the answer to all their questions.
- Van Halen, Van Halen II (1979) Which is better? Van Halen or Van Halen II? Reasonable adults can disagree. For my money, though, Van Halen is little more than an appetizer for one of the best rock records of all time.
- Boston, Boston (1976) Regular readers of my column Unpopular Opinion know that I believe this is one of the few truly perfect rock records. There’s not a bad song anywhere.
- Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
- Pet Sounds.
- The Beatles: Revolver.
- Highway 61 Revisited.
