your alltime favorite albums

hi Paul!

thanks for taking the time to answer our silly questions!
your contributions to this forum are invaluable.
(can't wait until i find time to chop up some of your GREEDY BREAKS)

my question is rather related to music and personal taste than pure gear or tech talk. i'd like to know what are some of your favorite albums, no matter the genre. and if you don't mind, i'd love to know what it is that makes them your all time favorites. the sound? overall production or maybe even just a beautiful memory connected to that specific LP. pick as many as you want.
thanks!
