A list of Allmusic.com’s 5-Star albums

Just another gem from Rate Your Music. A (probably still incomplete) list of all albums that got 5-star reviews from AllMusic.com. I counted 191 albums so far.

It’s a work in progress, so I don’t anyone to say “HAY LOSER WHERES LED ZEPPLIN AND BOB DYLAN YOU ARE A DESTROYER OF MUSIC” and such.

The leader in this list so far is Miles Davis with 19 releases!

  1. I noticed on Monday that Allmusic.com added some more 5 star albums, and, since they took down their advanced search feature, everybody has to find them all manually. I figured I’d post the ones that I’ve found so far, and hopefully some of you guys and gals have found even more!
