7. Close To The Edge - Yes
6. Tago Mago - Can
5. Red - King Crimson
4. Animals - Pink Floyd
3. In The Court Of The Crimson King - King Crimson
2. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
1. The Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd


Not that bad of a top ten list, but I don't think Tago Mago should have been there. Ege Bamyasi or Future Days would have been much better choices.

I like the RYM site because any music fan can have a voice much like on here. It's built for the music fan. Sure you have to take opinions and ratings with a grain of salt, but i like reading people's opinions.

There are some oddities though- for example, very few people would say Murmur by REM is a better album than Automatic For The People by REM. And yet Murmur has a higher rating. Not really sure how this kind of thing comes about.

I'd say it was better.

Personally, I think Murmur is a far better album. I believe that by the time Automatic for the People was released, the general public ate up REM releases, but those who had listened to them previously had gotten tired of Michael Stipe's sanctimonious babble, which is in full whine on songs like "Everybody Hurts" and "Man on the Moon". I ignored them after the album Document, their last great album.

'90s REM records have amazing tracks on them (the ones that made it as singles), but as albums they don't come close to their '80s albums (for me of course).

4.05 vs 4.02 .... pfft! a 0.7% difference - statistically it's insignificant.

Too many Floyd albums in their Top 10. 

Animals is the only one i'd put there.

Murmur is a very good album, but my two favourite REM records are New Adventures In Hi Fi and Up with Automatic For The People coming in third. Yes I'm aware this opinion isn't exactly mainstream.
