Top 50 Guitar Albums By Decade

The ’70s rule! Well, at least that’s the decade that ruled our Top 50 Guitar Albums list. The “Me Decade” was responsible for more than half of the ranked LPs. The ’60s came in at a distant second place. As for newer artists, only on album from the past 10 years (actually, it ends up being the last 16 years) made the cut. The White Stripes’ 2003 release, Elephant, came in at #43.

1960s: 11
1970s: 27
1980s: 7
1990s: 4
2000s: 1

Hard to argue with many of the picks, but how can you have a Top 50 Guitar Album list without and album by The Outlaws (Outlaws, Hurry Sundown, Lady In Waiting, Bring It Back Alive, any one of them) on it?

As usual, the readers know best. Any list without Layla at or near the very very top of the list is complete and utter bullsh*t. Frankly, I feel confident in saying that it's not even a subjective issue. Objectively, that album is pretty damn close to guitar perfection.

Although DARK SIDE OF THE MOON is one of the great classic albums, I consider it more of a "keyboards and special effects electronic sound" album than a guitar album.

How many actual guitar solos from Gilmour are on the album? A great one during MONEY, and another nice one during TIME. But that's about it as far as I recall.

Either CD or vinyl, I own 41 of the 50.

Only ONE Cream album? I'd've thought that Wheels Of Fire would've placed higher than Disraeli Gears....and it didn't even make the list.

Mahavishnu Orchestra's Inner Mounting Flame, but not Birds Of Fire?

Totally with you on Birds of Fire, even though I also would have cried foul had Inner Mounting Flame not been on the list...

Better than some other lists I've seen (which always have Curt Cobain up there with Hendrix, Duane and Clapton), but how could the father of all string-bending B B King not make the list?? Sad to NOT see either Live At The Regal or Cook County Jail which every guitarist had back in the day.
Oh Well.... And that reminds me, where is Peter Green? #51 possibly??
Thank God they included Tevevision (a favorite of ABB fans everywhere) at #11. lol

I prefer the Live "Between Nothingness and Eternity" to the studio albums.

I have 44 of the top 50.

I Think Mick Ronson and the Spiders should have ranked higher for Ziggy Stardust.

Nah. We're all just puffing out our chests and trying to prove what "rock dudes" we are ...

Actually I was glad to see this album on the list, along with Frank Marino and Alvin Lee. So often, stuff like this gets overlooked. Television (and Marquee Moon) is some of the best guitar work done in the late '70's and if you listen to the album, you can hear EXACTLY where the Talking Heads came from. The influence is all over this album.

I thought the list was rather good, although I would have liked to see a Zappa album on the list along with Albert Lee, but hey, that's just me!

I have 40 of the 50 on the list . I agree with a lot of folks here on Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon , love Gilmour but his guitar is more prominent on WYWH and Animals . For Metal fans no Iron Maiden (NOTB), Judas Priest (Unleashed In The East) . Santana , agree also , take your pick on which one (Moonflower, Blues For Salvador, etc.)

I was pleased to see Television - great double guitar work that sounds nothing like ABB - I do not know The WIldhearts, Patto, or Voi Vod.
