I thought you loved Kansas - leftoverture?

It falls just outside this list somewhere. The 70s are to prog rock what the 80s were to classic metal and thrash. There's just way more great albums than there's room for in a top 20.

Don't know if I really have the means to do this and believe it's a great list - but all I know is that the list would have a ton of UFO, Thin lizzy, Kansas, and Rainbow. Definitely some Deep Purple as well.

I am surprised nobody has Boston on their list! That debut album of theirs is just terrific classic guitar based rock!

:wallbang: Should've put that one. My list is also lacking gems like Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, Buffalo's Volcanic Rock, Amanaz's Africa, MC5 Kick out the Jams, 2112, In Trance, we could be here awhile :D

Dl'ing Captain Beyond. I own every album/cd in your list except that one so hopefully I'm in for a treat.

If I only knew these members from these lists my respect level would be so much higher for them across the board. Especailly someone at such a young age knowing so much about music from when I was a kid.

Truer words have never been spoken...

Listening to Billion Dollar Babies now. What an incredible album. The fact that they put out 5 albums from 1971-1973 is one of the most fascinating things to me. Considering Love it to Death, Killer and BDB are all incredible albums start to finish makes that even more impressive.

Gotta admit I've never gotten into his stuff, read all the good reviews and know how big of an influence he was on a lot of artists I love, but I've checked out Killer and I didn't get too stoked on it.

Edit: Alright I'm goin back to Killer right now, still sounds like a weaker version of mint Aerosmith to me

The 70's is just one decade before my time of getting into Heavy Metal music. Maybe I'm younger than some of you guys which surprises me?!?!?! :eyes:

Of the 3 I mentioned I'd rate them Billion Dollar Babies then Love it to Death then Killer. As a whole it was experimental and controversial but I still think it's a great album. When this album was released Aerosmith was doing poppy stuff like Dream on, Mama Kin and Walking the Dog. Here's an interesting note off wiki:

Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd. called Killer the greatest rock album of all time. Punk icon Jello Biafra & The Melvins covered the song "Halo of Flies" on their 2005 release Sieg Howdy!. Power Metal band, Iced Earth, covered the song "Dead Babies" for their 2002 release, Tribute to the Gods.

Alice Cooper gets a lot of love from Punks.

Can't do it.....


if I did, the first Rush album would probably be number 1 and KISS's Hotter Than Hell a close second. Aerosmith - Draw The Line would be top 5.

I like Alice Cooper but I like Dragontown town better than some of his 70's albums.
