    This has probably been done before. But since we've got a top 10 movies thread going, it's fair game. Plus, this other message board I go to has a top 10 albums and we need to keep up with the Joneses.
    You define top 10...the ones you listen to the most or the ones you think are the best.

    I'll get it rolling:

    1) The Beatles "The Beatles" (White Album)
    2) The Rolling Stones "Exile on Main St."
    3) The Clash "London Calling"
    4) Radiohead "OK Computer"
    5) My Bloody Valentine "Loveless"
    6) Miles Davis "Sketches of Spain"
    7) Wilco "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot"
    8) Nirvana "Nevermind"
    9) Bob Dylan "Highway 61 Revisited"
    10) Led Zeppelin "Physical Graffiti"

    The first five or six are pretty sold, but there are a shitload that could move into the last few spots....

    Can't argue with your No. 1.

    Mine, if I get around to it, will include Hall & Oates' Abandoned Luncheonette and probably Full House by J. Geils Band.

    This was extremely difficult, and would probably change every time I did it if I did it 100 times. But here's the list I came up with:

    1. The Beatles "Abbey Road"
    2. Pearl Jam "Vs."
    3. Modest Mouse "The Lonesome Crowded West"
    4. The Who "Who's Next"
    5. Pearl Jam "Ten"
    6. AC/DC "Back in Black"
    7. Guns 'N Roses "Appetite For Destruction"
    8. Pavement "Brighten the Corners"
    9. Wilco "A.M."
    10. Piebald "We Are the Only Friends That We Have"

    OK, I'll give it a try...

    1. Pernice Brothers, "Live a Little"
    2. Neil Finn, "Try Whistling This"
    3. Elvis Costello, Get Happy!!"
    4. Paul Kelly & The Messengers, "Gossip"
    5. Crowded House, "Together Alone"
    6. The English Beat, "Special Beat Service"
    7. Midnight Oil, "10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1"
    8. The Clash, "London Calling"
    9. The Plimsouls, "Everywhere at Once"
    10. The Call, "Reconciled"

    Limiting myself to one each on Pernice, Elvis and Crowded House -- otherwise there wouldn't be any room. "I'm The Man" by Joe Jackson belongs on there somewhere...
