33. Bon Jovi - New Jersey

I’m not a huge fan of theirs, but at their best they’re some of the best hit makers ever, and SWW was just a warm up for NJ. Go big or go home, every track is packed with rock and roll excess to the nth degree. A fat slab of AOR / hair metal mastery. Stand out track: Homebound Train

30. The Who - Quadrophenia

They were already big before Who’s Next, and before Tommy for that matter, but those two (Who’s Next especially) would go on to be celebrated among the greatest classic rock albums of all time as The Who’s defining works. How do you follow up that double whammy (plus Live At Leeds)? Double down on the rock opera idea with an even more outrageous story, more symbolism, more motifs, the best production 1973 had to offer, and even more classic songs. Stand out track: Love Reign O’er Me

Good one, one of my all time favorite albums after another perfect album.

I just put it on right after I wrote that. This is a great record through and through.

Bruce Springsteen- Darkness On The Edge Of Town

I was going to say Born To Run, because I think The Wild etc is a phenomenal album. But then...you realise that as great as Born To Run is, and it is superior to what came before, he was able to actually come close to topping that classic.

I am on the fence about this. I do favour Born To Run. But I also cannot deny that the bleaker follow up to it carries a weight and majesty that is at the very least close to its equal.

How about we cut and paste the list from the last post and then you add your choice?  That way people don’t have to read through 7 pages to see if their choice was listed on page 4.

Ironic that this post occurs following a post about Marillion, where it's doubtful this would be a concern.

Quite the opposite, they pull together and make a flawless album!
