Top 10 of all time...wow thats quite a raise...can't we start with Top 10 of the 1990's?

I'm guessing I am older than you are from your list and that you are only speaking of rock music; here is my take off the top of my head. I had to do 15 since some cannot be left off IMO.

Frank Zappa: One Size Fits All
The Who: Quadrophenia
The Beatles: Rubber Soul
Phish: Lawn Boy
Bob Dylan: Bring it all Back Home
Jethro Tull: Stand Up
Rush: 2112
Jimi Hendrix: Electric Ladyland
The Doors: Soft Parade
Dylan & The Band: The Original Basement Tapes
SRV: Couldn't Stand the Weather
Grateful Dead: American Beauty
Talking Heads: More Songs about Buildings & Food
The Police: Ghost in the Machine
Prince: Sign O' the Times

Interesting that you picked 2112 from the Rush discography. It's a great album but a little too indulgent at times in their prog-art-rock phase. I have a soft spot for Fly By Night too.

Oh and SRV?

I thought about Van Morrison but I might have to go with Hard Nose the Highway. And I'd take Blue Train over Kind of Blue.

AND YES.. i considered putting MJ's off the wall on there as a reserve.

I was close to going with "A Love Supreme", but I'm much more Miles than Trane.

I am a prog rock fan and thought Peart did some of his finest writing on that...I also lean toward strong individualism, like the fact they tributed it to Ayn Rand and love the philosophy of the album... Signals would be 2nd on my Rush list...

SRV = Stevie Ray Vaughan, one of the best blues guitar players ever born IMO...

Prince - Sign O' The Times
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
REM - Document

I'm treating this like a desert island question, where it would be necessary to have a mix of genres and time periods to preserves one's sanity if faced with only listening to 10 albums for the rest of one's life.

No particular order:

Modest Mouse - Lonesome Crowded West
Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet (Nation of Millions is a better album, but Black Planet just caught me at the right time of my life)
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Led Zeppelin - IV
Neil Young - Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King
The Cars - S/T
Nirvana - Unplugged
Fugazi - 13 Songs
Misfits - Walk Among Us
