I could have put down SOTT as honorable mention. Thought Iโ€™d be fair and only do one album for an artist. ๐Ÿ™‚

Honestly, I wouldn 't put these in cement but here is my list at the moment in no particular order...

--Beatles -Abbey Road

--Prince --Purple Rain (though I personally prefer others at times)

--Radiohead --OK Computer

-- Joni Mitchell -- Blue

--Jane Siberry --When I Was A Boy

Oh God, I must not think of all of those I didn't mention while trying to fall asleep tonight.

A weird sidenote, while I was typing I wasn't initially paying attention to the screen. I must have accidently deleted some letters, as when I looked up Joni wasn't there and the Radiohead entry said OK Computer Blue lol . I always knew Prince was in everything!!!

In no order:

1) Radiohead - Amnesiac (would'a said OK Computer, but thought I'd shake it up, plus this was the 1 that introduced me 2 them, also cuz it has that crazy ass Life In A Glasshouse up there n a few other crazy 1s cloud9)

2) Erykah Badu - New Amerykah Part 1: 4th World War (or Mama's Gun, but NA is more cohesive, I think)

3) Prince - Sign o the Times (or 1999, mad I'm only choosin 1)

4) Madhouse - 8 (I'm cheatin tease)

5) Either Common's Like Water For Chocolate, Mos Def's Black On Both Sides or D'angelo's Voodoo (wore all them shits out bitd mushy)

ShaggyDog

1) The Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd
2) Innervisions - Stevie Wonder
3) The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars - David Bowie
4) Purple Rain - Prince & The Revolution
5) Is This It? - The Strokes

It's really hard to pick just five albums. The first 4 on the list pick themselves, but I've had to leave out some albums I love such as The Kick Inside by Kate Bush, Suede by Suede, Blue Lines by Massive Attack, Illmatic by Nas, and for some reason Viva La Vida Or Death And All Her Friends by Coldplay.
