    Your All-Time Top 10 Favorite Albums

    Ok, continuing off of the momentum of the All-Time Top 10 songs thread. Name your Top 10 favorite Albums / CD's of all-time. This will hopefully be easier than the songs thread, but still somewhat challenging, I'm sure. It's meant to be difficult.

    Here's mine (in no particular order):

    Paul Simon - Graceland
    Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
    Radiohead - The Bends
    Grateful Dead - American Beauty
    Counting Crows - August and Everything After
    Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home
    Jane's Addiction - Ritual de lo Habitual
    Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
    Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours


    I know I'm leaving out a bunch more.

    The Wall comes to mind, so does Dark Side of the Moon...ugh! I'll probably slap myself when someone posts their list and say "DOH!", but those are the 10 that came out of my head first.

    Yep, there's some I left off and could have included.

    To me, this means "entire album, top to bottom," not "3 or 4 great singles and a bunch of mediocre filler."

    I came real close to adding both of these. Throwing Copper is just plain good. And I didn't really listen to hard rock/metal until I heard the Black Album.

    "Home" is an amazing track...just, amazing. I'm not a huge Dream Theater fan (although I do own a couple of their albums), but this album--and "Home" in particular--are fantastic.
