Default Top 5 Guitar Albums of All Time

Hello folks, im new here and pretty much the purpose of this thread is to find out a bit more of the taste of music lovers here. This list is 100% my opinion, if you disagree, good! i would love to hear other peoples feedback. please go ahead and post you're own list.

Now for the List!

5. Van Halen - Van Halen

Ah yes, the album that shot Eddie Van Halen into stardom. The album is known mostly for the insane solo Eruption. Overall, every single track just shows why Van Halen is known as a legend.


4. Pink Floyd - The Wall

Druggie Rock at its best! David Gilmour has always been one of my favorite guitarists. This album proves that you dont need to shred or have fast solos to be an amazing guitarist.
Key Tracks
Another Brick in The Wall 1 & 2
Comfortably Numb


3. Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland

Jimi doing what he does best, this album is a classic probably my 2nd favorite album from the 60s. Hendrix was the first really amazing solo electric guitar player out there, and this proves it.
Key Tracks
All Along The Watchtower
Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
Voodoo Chile


2. Buckethead - Population Override

Most likely my most controversial pick on the whole list. Buckethead has a lot of fans but a lot of haters as well, most of his haters say that "oh well, he only shreds and plays with no feeling." listen to this album and say that to me again.
Key Tracks
Unrestrained Growth
Too Many Humans
Earth Heals Herself

And The GrandPappy of them all...

1. Led Zeppelin IV

Wow, that is all I can say. This is truly the greatest Rock album ever. It is Led Zeppelin's finest work, Jimmy Page brings ithome with his monumental guitar licks and catchy riffs. Hating this album would be like hating music itself.
Key Tracks
Stairway To Heaven
Black Dog
When The Levee Breaks


Thank you for reading, please feel free to discuss and post your own ideas and lists.

Machine Head- Deep Purple.

Ritchie is such an amazing guitar player. From slow blues, (When a Blind Man Cries") To fast classical-inspired burning ("Highway Star") to the amazing doubling of the organ parts of John Lord. Ritchie is the only one who could truly compete with Clapton, in my opinion.[- Hendrix was untouchable]

Plus he wrote: "Smoke on the Water".

"Band of Gypsies" belongs on this list too.

I'll go straight to Number 1:

Marquee Moon, by Television.

If anybody hasn't heard this record, I suggest hearing it before making your lists as it really *does* stand a strong chance of modifying your opinions

In random order

5. Joe Satriani - The Extremist

4. Steve Vai - Passion and Warfare

3. Geddy Lee(Rush) - Moving Pictures
Although he's mostly known for his high pitched vocals he was an excellent bassist

2. Slash (Guns N Roses) - Appetite for Destruction

1. Eddie Van Halen - I prefer 1984 but their self titled debut was great also

Have any of you guys heard Beck-Ola by Jeff Beck. That is one mean guitar album.

Well I am a big Zeppelin fan, but I say a album with great guitar work in it would be Ozzy Osbourne The Ozzman Cometh, I just love everything that Randy Rhoads did before he died, he wasn't the best, but he sure was good for his age, I am a big Jimmy Page fan, but I really liked this album and im not a big Ozzy fan either.

I disagree, House of the Holy is Zeppelin’s best album.
Zeppelins fourth studio album is the most famous hard rock album ever recorded , not to mention a watershed moment for ever grizzled old man who’s ever carried a bundle of sticks on his back. It was a defending endeavour or the band and for the genre it accidentally created it . Zoso is the origin of everything that sounds, feels or even tastes vaguely metallic (except for Metallica which comes from black Sabbath’s Sabbaths, bloody Sabbath ) but House of the Holy was way better
