Rock music experienced a golden era in the 1970s, giving rise to a number of classic albums that helped determine the course of the genre. Led Zeppelin’s “Physical Graffiti” displayed the band’s unparalleled musicianship and a variety of rock genres, while Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon” is recognized as a significant concept album that pushed the limits of what rock music might sound like. With its catchy anthems and inventive synthesizer use, The Who’s “Who’s Next” is still a rock powerhouse. The album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” by David Bowie also cemented his reputation as a pioneering rock hero.
