Best 2 Albums Per Decade

Shoutout to Eggvander for the idea, really awesome so I wanted to do this rlist myself but rrinstead of just 1 album, I wanted to do 2 per decade that I rthink are the best.
1Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited


60's -- 1965, I remember my father playing this record when I was just under 5 years old and it has never left my brain. One of the most amazing albums I have ever heard and the album that shot Dylan's fame through the roof.
2The Rolling Stones
Let It Bleed


60's -- 1969, Let It Bleed is an album I grew up listening to in my little 2-story home in Philadelphia. It contains some of the darkest and most political lyrics the Stones have ever written. It also has my favorite stones song of all time "Gimme Shelter" on it. Every song is a winner except Country Honk which is the only imperfect song on the album.
3Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV


70's -- 1971, This is easily one of the best albums of all time and still rocks as hard as it did in the 70's. Stairway To Heaven, When the Levee Breaks, Black Dog, this album has it all. Page+Plant at their very best.
4Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here


70's -- 1975, my favorite Pink Floyd album and it isn't even close. The opener is "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", a beautiful long, slowly building track that begins and ends the album. In between you have 3 more perfect tracks (Welcome to the Machine, Have a Cigar, and Wish You Were Here). This is Floyd's best album IMO and as mentioned it really isn't that close.
5Michael Jackson
Thriller


80's -- 1982, 7 number one singles and one of the most memorable music videos of all time. It is the best selling album OF ALL TIME. This is not only one of the best albums of the 80's, it is one of the best ever.
6Bruce Springsteen
Born in the U.S.A.


80's -- 1984, while not as legendary as "Born To Run", Born In the USA was still an incredible album. Seven top-10 singles which is still a record tied with Janet and Michael Jackson. Standouts: Born in the USA, I'm on Fire, Glory Days, Dancing in the Dark, My Hometown.
7Radiohead
Ok Computer


90's -- 1997, no explanation needed. One of the more influential albums of the 90's and changed the sound of Radiohead for good.
8Red Hot Chili Peppers
Blood Sugar Sex Magik


90's - 1991, let me start by saying yes I left off Nirvana, nothing against them I'm just not a big fan of the "grunge" movement. RHCP's last really good album IMO, after this every song was about California. Suck my Kiss and Give it Away are still hard rockers now.
9AFI
Sing the Sorrow


00's -- 2003, I am very biased on this one as I am a huge AFI fan but this was the highlight of my High School years and personally one of AFI's best albums. The Leaving Song Pt. 2, Girl's Not Grey, Silver and Cold, not a bad song on this one.
10The White Stripes
Elephant


00's -- 2003, The White Stripes had already had a few good albums but this one put them on notice. This is the album that got me really into Jack White and have since become a huge fan of his guitar work. Not only does this CD include the overplayed (but awesome) Seven Nation Army, it also contains one of the most badass blues songs in the past 20 years in Ball and Biscuit. Blues music lives on.
11Circa Survive
Blue Sky Noise


10's -- 2010, easily the hardest ones to choose because of the fact it's only been 4 years. Blue Sky Noise is everything a Circa Survive album should be. Juturana was great but I enjoy BSN much more. Anthony Green (singer) is at the top of his game the whole album. The progression this band has made from Juturana to now is incredible.
12Jack White
Lazaretto


10's -- 2014, I know some people didn't like this album but I personally enjoy the hell out of it. If it makes you feel better you can switch this with Blunderbuss and I will be still happy with my list. Lazaretto combines blues, rock n roll, and even has some country roots to it.
