Long has the question been asked, "Which Grateful Dead album is the best of all time?" Plenty of fans will point to the 1969 Live album, while others may simply argue that the literal Best of the Grateful Dead is the top choice. American Beauty, Grateful Dead and Workingman's Dead are also top contenders.
There are so many albums to choose from, of course, that most fans can't narrow it down to just one, opting instead to list a top 5 or even 10 list of albums. Now that we have the Internet, of course, we can measure the best albums by different, numerical ways, like which songs have ranked the highest over the past 50 years. The issue with this, of course, is that it only ranks songs based on popularity, not on their value or meaning, which we all know can vary widely. Some of the most popular hits don't translate to being the best songs, after all.
So that leaves us with the original question: what are the best Grateful Dead albums of all time? Share your thoughts in the chat!
