Some of them never charted on the Billboard 200 album chart, and never got any commercial airplay, and I don't know anyone in real life besides myself who has ever even heard of some of them.

Transitions - Back in Da Days

Shpongle - Tales of the Inexpressible

Notorious BIG - Ready to Die

Barcelona Paris Second Flight

Claude Challe - Buddha Bar 2

Eire Og - Live at Brazen Head Pub

Pogues - Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash

BT - Emotional Technology

Polyphonic Spree - The Beginning Stages of.../Together We're Heavy

See.. I ended up going a little over.

Not even sure where to start...excluding "hits" albums and such and limiting to 1/artist, I'd have to include

Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
Pearl Jam - Ten (or Vs.)
Radiohead - The Bends (or O.K. Computer)
U2 - Achtung Baby (or Joshua Tree)
Beatles - White Album
Coldplay - Rush of Blood to the Head
R.E.M. - Document (or Life's Rich Pageant...or Green)
The Cure - Disintegration
Pixies - Doolittle (or Trompe Le Monde)
Last spot reserved for one of the 25 albums I'm forgetting right now...

Maybe RHCP - BSSM, Ministry - Psalm 69, Dylan - Blonde on Blonde, Muse - Absolution, Velvet Underground, Depeche Mode - Violator, 10,000 Maniacs - Our Time in Eden...many more.

Agree, don't think grundle's rating of "obscure" is accurate. Clash obscure? Blur obscure?

Anyway, I don't think I've ever rated my Top 10 in order, so I will make a list of ten albums I really really like. (Actually, as I'm doing this, I find it extremely easy to do).

Badly Drawn Boy - Hour of the Bewilderbeast
Manu Chao - Proxima Estación: Esperanza
Beck - One Foot in the Grave
Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
Electrelane - The Power Out
Morphine - Cure for Pain
Sigur Ros - Ágćtis Byrjun
Breeders - Last Splash
Don Byron - A Fine Line: Arias and Lieder

I didn't pick anything from the Doors, Radiohead, or Coldplay simply because it would take a me a couple of days to think which one of their albums I would want.

These are my favorite albums, not the "ten greatest" or "ten best" -- just my favorites. Each of these albums will probably be played at least a hundred times in my lifetime.

So what if it's not quite 10.

Listin' ain't easy!

The Clash - "London Calling"
The Stone Roses - s/t
The Beatles - "Revolver"
A Tribe Called Quest - "The Low End Theory" (or "Midnight Marauders")
The Velvet Underground - "The Velvet Underground and Nico"
Public Enemy - "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back"
The Beach Boys - "Pet Sounds"
Pulp - "Different Class"
The Cure - "Disintegration"
John Wesley Harding - "Awake"

I could easily swap in REM's "Green," Matthew Sweet's "Girlfriend," Depeche Mode's "Violator, Peter Gabriel's "So," NIN's "The Downward Spiral," or Elvis Costello's "Spike" (yeah, that's my fave of his - so what?) in there.

Comps:
Pet Shop Boys - "Discography"
Bob Marley - "Legend"
Queen - "Greatest Hits I & II"
Dexter Gordon - "Ballads"
