Martin Popoff's the Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time

This is a list taken from a book by Martin Popoff. The ranking was made with polls all around the world and not by Popoff himself. Not all of the albums can be considered as metal. But bands like Queen or Jimi Hendrix for example were important for the evolution of Heavy Metal.
