Your favorite album(s)?

Which albums can you not live without? Not the ones with just 2 or 3 great songs, but the ones that are solid from top to bottom and monopolize time in your player.

A couple of mine:
Best of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong
Kind of Blue - Miles Davis

Coming up with favorite albums is just too hard if you take the whole of recorded rock music and try to make desert island lists. First I'd have to eliminate anything from my "sacred six" artists - those to whom I have always listened and always will - (U2, REM, The Cure, Prince, Depeche Mode, and The Smiths). Then I'd eliminate all the obvious choices (Beatles, Stones, Who, Zeppelin).

That leaves me with cool stuff from my general era, meaning stuff like:

The Pixies - Surfer Rosa
Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Dinosaur Jr. - Green Mind
Bob Mould - Workbook
The Silencers - A Letter From St. Paul
XTC - Mummer
X - See How We Are
The Replacements - Tim

Edited to add: Beck - Midnite Vultures - which is BY FAR, the best "Prince" album released in the last 5 years. (And no it doesn't fit with the time period of the other releases I listed - I just had to mention it because it's still one of the best albums to come out in the last decade.)

And that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface

I know, I know. They are a "boy band." I'm not really a fan of boy bands, and their image, but I like some of there music. It looks kind of wrong listing a boy band with rap and rock music, but it is a good album. Better then the "Celebrity" CD. What a waste.
