Berlin may be his masterpiece, and Transformer the gateway drug, but no record sums up Lou Reed’s 1970s output better than Take No Prisoners, a live album recorded at New York’s Bottom Line in 1978. At this point, Reed was a veteran on his eighth album, but still sharp-as-a-pin and thoroughly in love with his own barbaric persona and acid tongue. pursued in the second half of the ’70s.
As the ’70s wound down, the tensions between Roger Waters and David Gilmour were reaching the breaking point. Waters wanted grander concepts and heavier themes, and thought the band’s music should flow from their broader ideas; Gilmour thought about music first, how songs were constructed and played. The Wall was the last time Gilmour and Waters found a compromise. The melodic largesse was such that the album even had a smash hit single that completely owned the radio: Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2). The album also felt like an ending, even if everyone involved had a lot more music left in front of them. Roger Waters’ reach would far exceed his grasp in the next decade (put on Radio . sometime to see how low he’d sink), leaving The Wall as the moment where he was able to realize his craziest dreams. Listen: Pink Floyd: Comfortably Numb.

Drugs became glamorous, without becoming better understood. In fact, the 1981 book The Truth About Drugs - The Body, Mind and You by Gene Chill and John Duff asserted that cocaine wasn't addictive. The ranks of those who had tried illegal drugs grew - in 1973, 12% of respondents to a Gallup poll said they had tried marijuana. That number had doubled by 1977. As drug use increased, many Americans began to see it as a problem. In 1978, 66% of Americans said marijuana was a serious problem in the high schools or middle school in their area, and 35% said the same of hard drugs
The ’70s sometimes get a bad rap: Often these years are remembered as the musical era that brought us disco at its absolute gaudiest. But there was far more going on in the decade than polyester, sequins and cocaine; the 1970s saw the rise of the singer/songwriter, the birth of punk rock, reggae’s infiltration of the mainstream and the long, strange trip led by some of psychedelia’s finest. In fact, it’s a decade so musically diverse, we had quite a time whittling it down to our top albums. 68. Nick Drake, Pink Moon (1972) Few albums on this list have aged as well as Nick Drake ’s final album from 1972, recorded in a pair of post-midnight sessions with just Drake and producer John Wood. The simplicity of acoustic guitar, subtle piano and whispered vocals could have been recorded four decades later-and indeed Drake has sold many more copies of his albums since his death in 1974.

U2 is a great band with the war album the Joshua tree and even in the 90s and 2000s they were great. Oh come on. U2 are amazing
The album was the first produced after the departure of the previous front man, Syd Barrett, and struck the tone the band would follow for the rest of their time together. With its easily recognizable prism artwork, it truly deserves a spot on this list. Blue Oyster Cult by Blue Oyster Cult. Very few bands represent the 70s better than the prog rock outfit Boston. Their album art is known the world over for its creative use of guitars. Their self-titled album started this trend which is still alive and well today. Moreover, this album is chock full of classic rock hits, including More Than a Feeling and Peace of Mind. The art shows once again the 70s obsession with space, and the hovering guitar motherships remain a classic motif to this day, showing the space age sounds of 70s rock will be looming over us whether we want them to or not.
