There are so many other albums, however, equally as good but not recognised as the masterpieces that they are, albums that you can turn to when you have worn a hole in all the obvious choices. Here's are 25 of the best

The best album by the band that would become Chicago (the only ?)

A critical and overlooked album of country rock

Well, we know what this is perfect for doing with, and i didnt mean sex

Approachable blues rock without losing it's edge

Joe Walsh before The Eagles, this is like what Free is to Paul Rodgers before Bad Company
