What is your favorite "Classic" Rock Album of all time?


03-30-2004, 04:15 AM
Is the White Album by the Beatles considered rock? When I absolutely HAVE to pick that's usually the one I choose..


PS: looking for some albums to demo? ;)

03-30-2004, 05:46 AM
Yes, I would consider the White Album a classic rock album.


PS: No, just in one of those moods to listen to some classics and wanted to hear everyone's favorites.

03-30-2004, 06:32 AM
Well, I'll add The Doors, Band on the Run and Brothers in Arms by the Dire Straits.


03-30-2004, 07:56 AM
I'm just going to have to throw a few out, can't choose one, White Album, Abbey Road, Dark side of the moon, SGT Pepper.

03-30-2004, 09:35 AM
Queen--A Night at the Opera

03-30-2004, 11:12 AM
Led Zep I is still tremendous 35+ years later. Who's Next is definitely a good one and for those with a taste for the classic stuff that did not get played to death on the radio In the Court of the Crimson King is also a great listen.

Benjamin - You're just going to have to DEMO a few hundred classic rock albums and then make your own choice.
