I do have to say that a lesser-known AC/DC album at the top is a lot more interesting than Led Zeppelin IV! Good job, Classic Rock!

And no, Henrik, I do not have a Classic Rock subscription.

Seems like they broke their own rules by including All Things Must Pass, George Harrison's most famous album.

They did the same thing with the '80s list (Doolittle for Pixies, Murmur for R.E.M.).
Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand - Sir Duke (1976)
