Well i've only heard a few of them if i'm honest, but I went for Shania Twain - Come On Over. Quite the classic I think.

Nirvana and Guns 'n Roses are both my era and I love both, but you'd probably have to say 'Dark Side of the Moon' and 'Sgt Peppers' are bonafide classics.

Rumours - Fleetwood Mac.

End of poll.
Nah. Good-ish, but very, very overrated (imo).

Fleetwood Mac were a fantastic band when the great Peter Green was at the helm, but after that they became like every other AOR band of the seventies/eighties. One big yawn.

Beatles or Zeppelin all the way.

Seriously, people have actually voted for Spice Girls as the best of all time?? I would be way too embarrassed to do that...I see none of them have admitted it.

For me, it has to be either AC/DC [ the second biggest selling album of all time ] or Guns n Roses but there are several more great albums on this list obviously, it could go many ways.

Just NOT Spice Girls or Britney, sorry.

It was one of the two albums on that list I owned, the other being Spice Girls - Spice. How can I vote on an album I've never even listened to?

It's a no-brainer for me as there's only one of those albums that I own - 'Nevermind' by Nirvana.

I didn't realise Iron Butterfly was that high a seller, but I go for The Wall. A true epic.

Tough choice between The Wall, DSOTM and Nevermind.

Went with Dark Side in the end.

I think you should have made it just for UK sales only. A lot of these albums were huge in America but had little to no impact in this country whatsoever.

I'm not ashamed to say I voted for Spice. That was a classic Pop album.

Gone for Britney

I don't really like most of the albums on that list but oh well, clearly a lot of people did hence why they are best selling

I went for britney's because it was one of the early albums of my childhood, and 15 years later it is still such a great and fun pop album. It isn't groundbreaking or iconic. It's just a nice little pop album and i know the words to every song.
