Readers' Rock List: Final Albums


Last week, saddened by the sudden breakup of Be Your Own Pet, we asked our readers to tell us their favorite final albums. After counting the votes, the Beatles' Abbey Road - released before but recorded after Let It Be - was the runaway winner, edging swan song albums by Hendrix, Nirvana and many more. And while the Velvet Underground's Loaded and the Doors' L.A. Woman both made the top 10, we had to disqualify them as neither is technically a last album (Both Squeeze and Full Circle sadly count.) For the list of your favorite 15, check below:

1. The Beatles - Abbey Road
2. Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland
3. Nirvana - In Utero
4. Sublime - Sublime
5. Nick Drake - Pink Moon 6. Joy Division - Closer
7. Soundgarden - Down on the Upside
8. The Police - Synchronicity
9. Uncle Tupelo - Anodyne
10. Pantera - Reinventing the Steel
11. Tupac Shakur - The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory
12. Bob Marley and the Wailers - Uprising
13. The Smiths - Strangeways Here We Come
14. Jeff Buckley - Grace
15. Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water
