Led Zeppelin IV.  My favorite from the beginning of the voting.  Glad it made it to the Finals.  No offense to Pink Floyd, but I think The Wall was their best album.

Finals: Best Rock Album of the 70's

The debate on what is the Best Album of the 70's is never ending and the two choices between Dark Side of the Moon & IV are excellent in their own right but, the people have spoken again and the winner is.......

 

1.   Dark Side of the Moon   '73 - Pink Floyd     31-14   68%

You can't go wrong with this Album, it's timeless and at least to me it's still as fresh as when it came out some 36 years ago.

Thanks for everyone's participation in my Blog!!

Finals: Best Rock Album of the 70's

1.   IV   '71 - Led Zeppelin

Clearly ONE of the best rock albums of the 70's. I could not narrow it down to just one though. There are 3 Eagles albums, 2 Skynard albums, 1 Black Sabbath album, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith and a couple others I can't think of at this moment. I would have to rank each of these as a tie for the number 1 spot for the 70's.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. I think that's why I got married several times - to many GREAT choices! Embarassed
