Title: Various Artists-Best Rock Album in the World. Record Label: Virgin. This item is Like New. Seller.

Rock & Roll Album Rock Arena Rock Blues-Rock British Metal Contemporary Pop/Rock Glam Rock Hard Rock Heavy Metal Prog-Rock Proto-Punk.

Various Artists-Best Irish Album in the World. Various Artists - Motown Chartbusters, Vol. 3 (1998). Ever! Lots of great hits, naturally misses several 'must haves' for a perfect greatest hits album (no Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Beatles, nor Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", etc), but will likely fill in your collection with a few missing hits

Is this the best glam rock album compilation there could ever be? Not quite. This album does a great job of showcasing the biggest hits from the biggest UK glam rock bands of the early 1970s, such as Slade, Sweet, Mud, Mott the Hoople and Roxy Music. What are especially welcome are one-hit wonders such as Geordie and Cozy Powell.

Picking the best rock albums is pretty much an impossible task. In hindsight it’s difficult to see how Maiden could have taken their style further than they did on the Seventh Son album, and Infinite Dreams, The Clairvoyant and Can I Play With Madness are up their among the best tracks Maiden’s have ever recorded, and some others on this album are not far behind. Roth might not have had the most technically perfect voice in the world, but ultimately, what lifted the album was Edward Van Halen himself – the guitarist redefined the very vocabulary of what a rock guitarist could do. If there was one track that instantly placed the guitarist in the pantheon of greats it was Eruption, his spontaneous, two-handed tapping instrumental masterpiece.

The Beatles (The White Album) (1968) - The Beatles 27. I Never Loved A Man the Way I Love You (1967) - Aretha Franklin 28. Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music (1962) - Ray Charles 2. Young, Gifted & Black (1972) - Aretha Franklin 181. Toys in the Attic (1975) - Aerosmith 182. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995) - The Smashing Pumpkins 183. The Downward Spiral (1994) - Nine Inch Nails 184.

This page includes Best Prog Rock Album in the World. Footnote: IMHO the best Prog Rock Album of 2003 was the 3 CD set compilation offered by Decca: "Legend Of A Mind". This contained a fascinating collection of tracks (and artists), many long forgotten and the label even specifically remastered tracks for the compilation (. T2's "No More White Horses").
