25 Greatest Instrumental Albums of All Time

Who needs vocals when you have musical instruments, right? That's what many musicians think as well. Instrumental albums are great for many things, for example listening to music with lyrics while working or working out can be distracting, but instrumental albums suit that purpose just fine.
We received close to 450 comments and a healthy chunk of votes, all of which have been neatly summed up into a lovely little Top 25 rundown.
