I'd personaly place Paranoid instead of masters of reality in top 10, that album made more kids wanna pick up a guitar and do the iron man or paranoid riff.
Welcome back, Fox. You're probably right about that actually. To be honest, any of the first 3 could do.
Think blizzard of ozz is worth a spot in top 25
Doubtful, but you never know.
IMO texas flood is quite overrated on these boards, definitely it is a good album, but here everybody regards it as the album that brought back the blues to mainstream and ... while rory gallagher was doing this already for a while.
Gallagher came along at a time when blues was still pretty common. In the early 80's, it was considered all but dead and SRV definitely helped to 'revive' it and spark an interest back in the music in general.
Maybe a thin lizzy album somewhere in top 30, they had a bit of influence with their twin guitar sound.
So did Wishbone Ash, though they weren't as broadly well known.
I guess Elephant from the white stripes could be on this list too, not too high though
Agreed. Killer album.
I'd also put wheels of fire in top 25
