Doesn't the inclusion of Double Fantasy technically turn your list into a Top 9 1/2? ;)

Are you implying that Yoko's tracks aren't up to snuff? You've never blasted the immortal "Kiss Kiss Kiss, Kiss Me Love" while driving at night (I know I have)?

EDIT: Now for my list... well, these are just 10 great albums that occur to me at the moment, certainly not definitive or in order.

Low - David Bowie (possibly the greatest album ever made, period)
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars - David Bowie (woo, Merg nominated this one as well)
The Beatles (aka White Album) - The Beatles (soft spot for the eponymous)
This is Hardcore - Pulp (or maybe His 'n Hers, tough call at the moment)
Curtains - Tindersticks (if you haven't heard it, do so!)
The Final Cut - Pink Floyd (official billing on album jacket is "By Roger Waters, performed by Pink Floyd"
Bitches Brew - Miles Davis (also a tough call, but that one at this particular instant)
Plastic Ono Band - John Lennon (he was the Walrus, but now he's John)
Kid A - Radiohead (requires no explanation)
69 Love Songs - The Magnetic Fields (do triple-albums qualify or is that cheating?)

Ooh, I am surprised and elated to see someone mention Bowie's Outside. Definitely his best work over the past 20 years or so, but rarely mentioned it seems.

That, my friend, is an epic album right there. It doubt it will ever get nudged from my all-time top 10, and should find its way onto many others'. Good call.

Finally some common ground! Good to know that deep political divides aren't unbridgeable in other domains.

Vendetta - It's nice to see other's mention The The and The Smiths (and Dead Can Dance). Do you think Outside is Bowie's best?

Wariowoods - This is Hardcore IS a great album.

Bow ties are cool - The Doctor

WW, while our political beliefs may differ, our respect for each other's strength in them should always remain. That, and good music too. ;)

MERG, I'd swear the stars aligned for The The when they recorded Dusk. However, Naked Self made me want to tear my ears from my head with my bare hands and then chew on them to muffle the noise coming from the speakers. Those are the only two albums of theirs that I own (I just can't throw away music - even bad music).

V-I own all The The through Dusk. I never bought NAked Self. I guess there is no need to. I saw The The off of Dusk...it was an excellent show.

If I was a gal I would date all of you guys based on your great taste in music.

@Vendetta Fragile is indeed a wonderful album... I saw some records that I actually wanted to exchange into my current list. And joyride - Roxette that´s awesome, some swedish love :) A great album.

For me personally, the perfect album is when every song is in it's right place, when no song can be missed without destroying the "whole" of the album... Comparing to you guys I sure got some stinkers in there but to each it's own, right?

So to just go and be all technical, you're into concept albums and rock-operas? ;)
