The Beatles Top Album Poll

The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has been voted the best number one album of all time by the British public.

The seminal record, released in 1967, topped the poll to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the UK album chart.

The Beatles had a total of four albums in the top 10, with Revolver at six, Abbey Road at eight and The Beatles - also known as The White Album - at 10.

Michael Jackson's Thriller came second and U2's The Joshua Tree third.

The rest of the places were taken by a string of mid-70s records. Fourth was Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and fifth was Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here.

Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water came in seventh, and Queen's A Night At The Opera came ninth.

The most recent release to make it into the top 100 was Madonna's Confessions On A Dancefloor, at Number 37, which charted in November last year.

Over 220,000 people voted in the poll through websites

Sgt. Pepper changed the way albums are being created. It was the first "concept" album.
