Soundtrack of Julie Andrews movie 'The Sound of Music' came in second while Michael Jackson's Thriller is third, according to Billboard.

British singer Adele’s album 21 has been named the greatest album of all-time, according to Billboard.

The magazine has for the first time ranked the top albums based on their chart position in Billboard 200 albums, with week’s at No 1 getting the maximum value whereas those positioned lower in chart earn the least. The album ‘21’ topped the chart for 24 (nonconsecutive) weeks and spent 78 weeks floating somewhere in top 10. That was also the most weeks for any album by a female.

“21 debuted on the chart dated March 12, 2011 and spent its first 78 weeks in the top 10 (and then returned for three more frames…so far).” states Billboard website. “The album has yet to leave the list since its release, and has lingered on the tally for more than 254 consecutive weeks.”

Based on the chart position dating to 1963, the sound track of Julie Andrews’ 1965 movie ‘The Sound of Music’ claimed the second spot. The 50th anniversary of the soundtrack was celebrated in 2015 while Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ came in third.

The 27 year old singer won six Grammy Awards in 2012 as well as Oscar and Golden Globe Award for the song ‘Skyfall’ from the namesake Bond movie in 2013. She became only the second female artist to win six awards in a single Grammy Awards ceremony. Adele’s third studio album ‘25’ is scheduled to release on November 20. The lead single ‘Hello’ has debuted number one on U.S. and UK charts.

Billboard ranked the top all-time acts as well. British band ‘Beatles’ leads the chart while ‘The Rolling Stones’ came in second place, followed by Taylor Swift who logged eight chart entiries, all of which reached the top 20, with four albums hitting No. 1.
