    Posted: February 20 2011 at 14:19

Hey guys, I just watched Pink Floyd: The Wall on Friday and then went back and listened to the album. It got me to thinking about double albums, and these are some that came to mind:

The Beatles: White Album
Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffitti
Pink Floyd: The Wall
The Who: Tommy
 
So which do you think is the best double album?

are we talking pre-CD double albums only? many modern single-disc releases are longer than some double albums from the 70s

anyway, i choose Frank Zappa - Lather (i know, it's a quadruple-album, but whatever)

Surprised The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway didn't make this list. out of those four, I'd have to say the Wall is my favorite.

Quadrophenia... or Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Probably the latter.

From the four that you mentioned: The Beatles' self-titled white album.
My overall favourite: Ummagumma - Pink Floyd

Well, Roxy & Elsewhere was conceived as a double LP, so that for me is one of the greatest albums ever.
