2. Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin was a league of their own. This album will make anyone want to learn how to play musical instruments – whether it’s guitar, bass, or drums. And of course, attempt to reach the high notes Robert Plant effortlessly belts out to. The group fused blues and rock seamlessly – like they were meant to be blended from the start. With classic hits like “Dazed and Confused” and “Good Times Bad Times,” it’s every music lover’s fantasy to play like any of them. In one interview, Page shared that they only spent 36 hours in the studio to complete this brilliant musical masterpiece. Here’s a fun fact: the recording cost them a measly £1,782 but the total gross was £3.5 million. Lewis wrote: “Time has done nothing to diminish the quality of one of the finest debut albums ever recorded. There’s an urgency and enthusiasm about their performance that retains timeless charm. The nine cuts offer a tour de force of powerful yet often subtle dynamics … And let’s not forget the fact that with this album, Page virtually invents the guitar riff as a key songwriting component.” Yep, if you still don’t have this record, you need to buy now.
