I know this is very subjective but here's a few of mine in no particular order

INXS - Kick

Oasis - Definitely Maybe

Foo Fighters - The colour and the shape

Def Leppard - Hysteria

Killers - Hot Fuss

Nirvana - Nevermind

Probably lots more I'll think of shortly, let's hear your favourites too

It's very difficult to say as there's so many different things that I may have taken into account when I say something is one of my favourites but all things considered, if I had to pick one and one only it would have to be Slayer - Reign in Blood.

As much as there's lots of music and its different genres I like, one album always springs to mind for this topic:

A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders

Free - Fire & Water. I like lots of other albums, but this one has always been the best for me since it was first released. I hate to imagine how many different versions of it I have had through the years.

A close second would be Fleetwood Mac - Fleetwood Mac (the one with the white cover). Buckingham & Nicks brought so much to the band on that first album to feature them.

I'm usually not that good at best lists but 3 albums always come to mind. You may notice a pattern.

Miles Davis and Gil Evans - Porgy And Bess
The Gil Evans Orchestra - Out Of The Cool
The Gil Evans Orchestra - There Comes A Time

After that there are a few others I could add such as

Oliver Nelson - The Blues And The Abstract Truth
The Pop Group - For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?
Rip Rig + Panic - Attitude
XTC - Black Sea

Can I add the film Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense?

There will be others that will come to mind later on.

Perhaps I should go in chronological order, it stretches a fair way back.

Beach Boys, Pet Sounds
Jethro Tull, Songs from the Wood
Carole King, Tapestry
James Taylor, Sweet Baby James
Moody Blues, Question
Paul Simon, Graceland
Cat Stevens, Tea for the Tillerman
Pink Floyd, Wish you were here
Bob Dylan, Desire
Joni Mitchell, Blue
Laura Marling, Once I was an eagle
Pualo Nutine, Caustic Love

Struggling to think of many 21st century albums to be honest.

Edit:
Listening to this right now. Forgot how good it is:
Fleet Foxes, Helplessness Blues. My missus hates it so it must be outstanding.:smashin:

If I had to choose just one, Out of the Blue. It is just about perfect.

Got floyd and zep etc. But that one album from ELO gets the most spins from me.

Darned good live as well.

That was the first concert I ever saw. The Out Of The Blue tour 1978 at Wembley arena. First Lasers I'd ever seen and a full sized flying saucer stage set. Brilliant! If I remember correctly the ticket only cost £3.25. LOL

I missed those tickets by a fraction. Very annoyed but got around to them Last year at Wembley. Wasn't sure what to expect but certainly a good show and the whole place was rocking.

But whatever album I flick through, Tull, Floyd AC/DC etc. etc. this one album is arranged brilliantly and put together so well from track 1 through end of side 4, I don't think I have anything that keeps up. Most albums seem to suffer from the one that slipped in by mistake or why the hell did he put those vocals in (led zep, looking at you), not this one.

Of course that is my view.
