God gave rock and roll to you. This title features 500 legendary albums from the world's foremost music magazine. A lush and lavish tribute to the greatest music of the last 50 years from the ultimate rock authority - compiled with assistance from a celebrity panel of 300 musicians and critics. A roster of rock legends - including Billie Joe Armstrong, "The Edge" and James Hetfield - step up to the plate to serve a selection of the greatest albums of the last 50 years. From Sgt. Pepper to Pet Sounds, it's all here - the must-haves, the little-knowns and the life-changing behemoths that spawned a million spinoffs and plastered iconic posters on every student wall from East Dulwich to Timbuktu. With covers reproduced for each album, reviews from Rolling Stone writers and editors and more than 100 rare photos from the recording sessions where it all went down, The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time is as indispensable as the albums it celebrates. Rock on!
