    For me, the most popular ones I don't own are the two Beatles albums and, Like you Led Zep IV.

    Yeah, AC/DC started to sound too harsh to these old ears. I sold the 2 or 3 records I had by them and just about all my metal albums.

    To my surprise, I own eight of them:

    Dark Side
    Led Zep IV
    Hotel California
    Beatles 1
    Immaculate Collection
    Sgt Pepper
    Abbey Road

    Out of these, the last two get played regularly and would make my personal Top 100.

    You live in Wales and don't own any Beatle albums? They had a great gig in Cardiff once!

    Nine for me. Dark Side, Rumors, Zep IV, All The Beatles ones, both Eagles, and Born in The USA. (The most recent one I've got being an old fart Ha Ha!) My Wife has the Shania Twain one, surprised to see that on the list actually, it's not bad. The rest from the 70's to late 80's I mostly loathed when they were out, no opinion about the more recent ones, but what I've heard of Adele is not too bad at all.

    ...but at time of writing, the highest scoring album is Sgt Pepper, owned by 88% of respondents - hence 12% do NOT won it.

    Looks like I have 9.
    I did not include the lp of Grease I have, because I just found it in my vegetable garden one day. Seems someone was playing frisbee with their older sisters old lps.
    And, oddly, I've never bought a copy of Sgt Pepper, which seems to be the most popular one.
