    "M83 transports me back to the eighties when I was kid watching a teen movie with Molly Ringwall or an early Nightmare on Elm St. break from killing scene, or running scene. However, this album is for a time such as now, the instrumentals have revived and refreshed the 80's sound in this album. The intro to M83 is like a book, from the very first paragraph you know whether the book is a put down or continue to read to the end. This album is indeed a listen to the end, and play over and over. If you want a quick escape, or vacation just pack these hits into a device that will allow you to hear the transporting beats, and dream."

    "Rumours, the album by Fleetwood Mac, is one of my all-time favourite road trip albums, and one of the best albums ever, period. I took a trip with my boyfriend to New York City, and we listened to this album over and over on the way there and back. There is something so nice about listening to this album as you cruise along over the hills, and watch the clouds roll by. It's so fun to sing along to, and it's casual and wistful, and a great listen. My favourite song on the album is definitely Never Going Back Again, such a soft, sweet tune, with Second Hand News coming in at a close second."

    "Somehow this album got great ratings on Amazon. I guess there is a dedicated following with very different musical tastes than me. But that's the music biz I guess. It's certainly not one of MY "best Albums to listen to on a road trip," but it might be one of yours. Who knows? Check it out and see."

    "The Band (with likely one of the most confusing band names of all time) has so many hits that are perfect to belt in the car. I have a strong love for a couple of songs, although that "old-timeyness" might not work for younger generations. I can see myself popping this in maybe once on a long road trip, but if you're a young adult, I bet you will have other music you prefer on road trips."

    "I love making playlists for travel but sometimes I get tired of listening to the same stuff. I started to explore the classics after my friend recommended the Rolling Stones album, Exile on Main Street."

    "Elton John is a household name and has great music. The reviews on this album hold it in high esteem and hundreds of people highly recommend it. I don't doubt that it is a great album to pass the time while riding down the road."

    "This is a beautiful album. Truly a joy to listen to anywhere, but on a road trip, it makes the whole thing feel very surreal, like you're in a movie. If you like dreamy, relaxing, ethereal music, this is the album for you. Cocteau Twins made a beautiful album here."

    "This album is one art of mastery. It might be one of their best albums and it is available at such a convenient price so I think it is worth a shot. The lyrics are so touching and the music is just amazing. It is a an album is is a Must have I would say and worth every penny."

    "I recently went on a road trip with some friends and did a search for best albums to listen to on a road trip. The Beatles - Abbey Road was recommended to me, and my friends and I could not stop listening to it on the way to our destinations. It really is one of the best road trip albums!"

    "Who in my age range don't remember the Grateful Dead. An iconic band of America. their mixture of music styles are great. No matter what kind of music you like you will love this band. It you don't like a song just wait for the next. This is such a diverse band you are sure to have many of their songs in you favorites list."

    "We are always looking for new music to listen on our road trips. We take at least 3 road trips in a year. So music is extremely important. My cousin actually got me hooked on Donald Fagen's album - Kamakirid. Keep it in your car. you won't regrtet it."

    "While I'm personally not a huge Survivor fan, I think this solution is very appropriate. The description even does a good job of selling the high points of the band. The album is rated fairly high on the Amazon page but there's only 44 reviews, which means the album itself isn't all that popular. Based on that, I'm not sure if I am completely convinced that this album would be considered the "best.""

    "I had planned to travel from Missouri to New Mexico for several months in advance but did not remember to pick out my travel music beforehand. I was stuck with the CD stuck in my cars player left by my sister. The album was Tired of Tomorrow by Nothing. I listened to the tracks oh about 10 times each, and in that time, the band really grew on me. Will be listening to more of their music in the future."

    "This music has been done, ad nauseum, in the early 90s, especially in the Seattle area when grunge was becoming the thing. Still, I stupidly gave it a chance. This almost caused me to crash my car out of sheer boredom during my road trip."
