"Larks Tongues in Aspic" by King Crimson, c. 1973. In this album Prog Rock hits its apex - it is simply perfect. After 1973 Prog got self indulgent and overwrought, but here is everything it could be at its best. Put on headphones, turn out the lights, pour a good beer and kick back. Its the one album makes me wish I hadn't quit with them left handed cigareetes all those years ago

In the running:
Beatles - Let it Be
Smashing Pumpkins - Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Led Zeppelin - IV
Pearl Jam - Ten
Nirvana - Unplugged
Jay-Z - Blueprint
Dr. Dre - Chronic
Those come to mind for me.
Californication, though BloodSugarSexMajik was probably more groundbreaking.
Swagger by Flogging Molly
Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash by The Pogues
Can't choose between those two
This aggression will not stand, man!
A Tribe Called Quest - The Low end Teory
I got mind control while I'm here
You goin' hate me when I'm gone
Ain't no blood clot and no fear
I got hope inside of my bones
Anything by Devin Townsend
Not sure my favorite EVER, but some that never leave my playlist are:
Siamese Dream/Mellon Collie - Smashing Pumpkins
Whats the Story? (Morning Glory) - Oasis
Those 3 albums I can listen to back and front. Everything else is just variations of that type of rock.
Not brave enought to name one favorite.
Selling England by the Pound
Fear of Music

Probably The Bends - Radiohead. but it is tough to pick just one.
Hardly a question in my mind for me. Fleetwood Mac's Rumors Album.
Robert Johnson - King of the Delta Blues
NOTHING in this thread exists without the influence of the blues master
Ramones first album, or the Misfits
