Well, the criteria was "Top Ten Best Albums Ever Made prior to 1980"...some bands are bound to get left off.

I know that's why I couldn't condense my list down to 10. A top 100 could be sufficient I suppose.

True, but it doesn't have to be just the 70's, just can't go past December 31, 1979.

Looks like VH is getting a lot of love. I think their debut is the single most mentioned album in the thread. Then it's probably Rainbow Rising, Highway to Hell, Aerosmith's Rocks and UFO's Strangers in the Night that are the next most popular.

Wow, very similar tastes we have. Though I think Led Zep IV isn't even a top three Zeppelin album.

Zep III is actually my favorite, but I didn't put it since it has so much acoustic stuff.

For some reason on the thread starter I read the word "decade" so I kept them all '70s.  Embarassed

Well I thank u all for the lists as they work as "suggestions" for someone who is actually willing to get deeper into 70´s rock stuff (me). I heard UFO from youtube and it blew me away. Old Aerosmith, Deep Purple , AC-DC , all great stuff.

Same goes for me - a lot of albums that I haven't heard have been mentioned in people's top tens.

I've actually never heard "Rocks" by Aerosmith. I've heard Toys in the Attic, but even that one I never bought a copy for myself.

Rocks is a more consistently heavy album.

^^very true. I've always felt Toys to be a bit random. Rocks is just heavy hard Rock throughout. It's an intense experience.

So, if it really was New Years Eve and 1979 was winding down, and I was picking the 10 Hardest Rocking albums to close out the festivities, and I was limited to one album max from any band, then it might have gone something like this....

I;ll order my list by year - just to be different:

Deep Purple – In Rock (1970)
Black Sabbath – Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973)
Blue Oyster Cult – On Your Feet or on Your Knees (1975)
Rush – All the Worlds a Stage (1976)
Rainbow – Rising (1976)
Thin Lizzy – Live and Dangerous (1978)
AC / DC – Powerage (1978)
UFO – Strangers in the Night (1979)
Judas Priest – Unleashed in the East (1979)
Motorhead – Overkill (1979)

DP - "In Rock" I thought about that, But I also thought it was from 69" Great Hard Rock album!
BS - "SBS"- Hard to pick a fav.  early 70's Sabbath as a#1. This was a close second for me.

Killer list by the way. I wore out all of those on lp except Motorhead as I never owned it. Maybe I should check it out.
