Another ten all-time classic albums today that deserve to be in your record collection. Between 35 and 31 we meet no one less than The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Radiohead for the first time. As the numbers become smaller, the names are growing…

RKH:

31. The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)
32. Pixies – Doolittle (1989)
33. Bob Dylan – Blonde on Blonde (1966)
34. Santana – Abraxas (1970)
35. Guided By Voices – Bee Thousand (1994)

32. Jethro Tull – Thick As A Brick (1972)
33. Creedence Clearwater Revival – Green River (1969)
34. Radiohead – OK Computer (1997)
35. Velvet Underground – White Light/White Heat (1968)

One album from 1967 this time, none less than Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Of course this album is added to the poll as we’re still trying to find the best album of this year during the countdown to #1. Other classics that are ranked in the thirties are Dylan’s epic double album (one of the first in music history) Blonde on Blonde and the legendary prog classic Thick As A Brick from Jethro Tull. The nineties are represented by one of the best albums of that decade and Bee Thou two of the best albums of that decade.
