List: Top Ten Rock Albums of all time

Date: May 2007

Source: TV Times (UK) online poll.

Base: There were 1,012 votes in total. Voters could nominate any rock album they wanted.

Notes: The online survey was created to tie in with the a BBC2 series called 'The Seven Ages Of Rock'. If you're pondering the lack of His Rockingness Jimi H or ACDC, bear in mind that the readership of the TV Times is UK centric and a bit on the weedy side. Comments about the top albums included:-
Music writer David Hepworth on Born In The USA: "Unabashed senitmentality - splashy sound, enormous drums, brilliant packaging - rock albums don't come any poppier."
Mark Radcliffe on Nevermind: "If you want a record that's a snapshot of those times, then Nevermind is unquestionably it."
Andy Kershaw on London Calling: "By 1979, the band had set aside the notion that music before punk had no value and let their own musical enthusiasms inform their sound, like R&B, country and reggae, which gelled magnificently here."
