Where is atomic rooster? great band
JohnDoe - 15.12.2012 at 18:49  
Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Yes, Genesis, UFO all had great albums in 1971 (just to mention a few).

I choose the best of the best of the year (in my opinion)

seriously, have you listened to the albums of 1971 of the bands I've mentioned above?

Pink Floyd did Meddle which is one of their best works; the albums deserves attention just for the epic Echoes.
Yes did Fragile which again is a solid album, one of the best progressive rock albums like... ever!
Genesis welcomed guitarist Steve Hackett and drummer Phil Collins and released an amazing album - Nursery Cryme; songs like The Music Box, Fountain of Salmacis, Seven Stones, The Return of the Giant Hogweed are some of the best songs in the catalogue.
King Crimson released Islands, a very good album, again different than their previous works, a successful musical experiment to say the least.
UFO experimented with space rock/prog on their second album, a huge step forward from their debut album; the band was still looking for their sound, their 1971 album - Flying was an interesting experiment.

I think you forgot about Alice Cooper. "Killer" and "Love It To Death" are amazing crazy albums.

I agree, I wanted to mention Alice Cooper as well, good thing you did.

Thin Lizzy's debut album came in 1971 and it's a nice album as well.
Fritillaria - 16.12.2012 at 11:57  
How about The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers ? I know it's not metal

it's not about albums being metal that this list is about, but about good albums of that year, and yes, that Rolling Stones album you've just mentioned is one of them.
Azarath - 16.12.2012 at 18:30  
Well, JohnDoe has already mentioned most of my favourites - Meddle, Fragile, Nursery Cryme, Islands. And Sticky Fingers is probably the Rolling Stones' best album.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer came out with both Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition.

Van der Graaf Generator released the monumental Pawn Hearts.
IronAngel - 17.12.2012 at 01:59  
Man you people are so misled! Leonard Cohen's Songs of Love and Hate, and Joni Mitchell's Blue. Both the best albums by some of the best singer-songwriters of all time. Then there's Sandy Denny's The North Star Grassman and the Ravens, and awesome piece of folk rock. And Popol Vuh's In den Gärten Pharaos, I guess.

If we're talking about metal or harder forms of rock, I guess Master of Reality gets my vote.
nicaZe - 17.12.2012 at 02:20  
Here are also some of the greatest albums of '71

Caravan - In The Land Of Grey And Pink
UFO - UFO 2 Flying
Pink Floyd - Meddle
Genesis - Nursery Cryme
Argent - Ring Of Hands
The Jeff Back Group - Rough And Ready
Frumpy - Frumpy 2
Wishbone Ash - Pilgrimage
Magna Carta - Songs From Wasties Orchard
David Bowie - Hunky Dory
R'Vannith - 17.12.2012 at 02:31  
No mention of Budgie's debut.

Also I'll just leave this here:
JohnDoe - 17.12.2012 at 10:16  
I forgot about Caravan, VDGG (but then again I did not want to annoy people with more prog ), Gentle Giant, Birth Control, Procol Harum, all did great in 1971.
Nice to see Wishbone Ash mentioned here.
achil - 17.12.2012 at 10:28  
I agree with the bands, great .if i choose all of the albums then the top list has no point

nobody said you did not try hard enough
IronAngel - 17.12.2012 at 23:41  
Eh, it's a discussion forum. When you make a list, you basically start a new thread. The whole point is to compare opinions and share suggestions.
Akula - 17.12.2012 at 23:41  
Fireball should be at P1 or P2 at least.

Machine Head was released in 1972 not 1973.
achil - 18.12.2012 at 22:04  
I want to say 1972, thanks
Akula - 19.12.2012 at 04:40  
Mmmm, I don´t know. For me Fireball is way better than most of the album of that list, come on man: Fireball, Fools, No no no, etc.
Azarath - 19.12.2012 at 18:37  
I guess the discussion quickly turned to people mentioning their favourites from 1971 instead of commenting on the list, and there are plenty of great albums on it: Master of Reality, Led Zeppelin IV, Fireball, Aqualung...

Who's Next by The Who was also released in 1971.

Honestly you're better off creating a list of 1971 albums, because you really suck at creating a best-of.

That's the problem, bud. You can't just name seven. There are a hell of a lot. Alice Cooper's Love It To Death and Killers, Genesis' Nursery Crymes, Steppenwolf's For Ladies Only, Yes' The Yes Album and Fragile, King Crimson's Islands, The Rolling Stones' Stick Fingers, Electric Light Orchestra's self-titled, Deep Purple's Fireball, ZZ Top's First album, The Who's Who's Next, UFO's Flying, Grateful Dead's Self-Titled, Hawkwind's In Search of Space and Fank Zappa's 200 Motels (Which although it is a soundtract to a film, is pretty sweet).
Improve this list, you must. Or Die, you will.

no i want to tell seven you like most, not all the albums of the year.
THE ESSENCE OF A TOP LIST IS TO CHOOSE SOME.

if you disagree with my list, ok, but the 7 albums that i choose are must have for someone who like this kind of music, so simple
