As an aside, live albums should not be eligible, IMO.

Why? This was a contest for greatest album of all time, not greatest studio album of all time. Live At Leeds is just as great as some of these, and better than a few more.

Then why not include greatest hits compilations?

Aren’t most live albums a greatest hits of sorts?

People could've put greatest hits compilations, no one did. I agree, if we're going to accept live and studio albums, compilations should also be allowed. I think all three are fundamentally different types of album, but they're all albums just the same.

Like I said, just my opinion that live albums and greatest hits shouldn’t be part of this, unless we’re talking something like Nugent’s Intensities in 10 Cities.  Not my call though.  But since only one live album even got suggested, and no greatest hits did, is at least some indicia most people think of studio albums of new material when asked about the greatest album of all time.

Live At Leeds is an amazing album and I am fine with it being in the list, I think it's fair because its only one album, and plus the polls never specified what format, so yeah Live and Studio and Compilations are allowed but they should have added more in the list of those, then voting would have been easier for some people.

Compilation albums should never be included in polls. Live albums are different because they are another version of a song, maybe a different energy, interpretation, even a different 'event'. And a live show adds a cohesion to a (live) album (even if there is studio work involved). There are plenty of bands who haven't put out a complete album worth a damn, but can scrape up enough good songs to have a noteworthy compilation. Doesn't count. #lost art of the album :codger:

What?? :o The Doors debut is epic. I'm not a huge fan, but I even have it. Just listen to it once - not necessarily for Morrison, but for the rest of the band. They had no bass player - it's Ray Manzarek (RIP :rose:) on keyboard.

No prob! He never said how many will move on per section. The top eight per section would secure Night at the Opera’s spot in the next round. The top ten per section would ensure that AND Queen II move on! :P
