Sputnik's Favorites

I've recently been talking to a fellow user, and we both agree that this place is becoming less about the music. In an attempt to curb this, I want you all to tell me what your favorite albums are, and why they are special to you. Why have they stood the test of time? If there are any circumstances or events surrounding them, then tell me that too. Here are a few of mine:
1Sigur Ros
( )

One of the earliest post-rock albums I heard, so it's special in that respect. However, I still find it breathtaking and incredibly beautiful, even after hundreds of listens.
2Kashiwa Daisuke
Program Music I

It was winter of last year when this really hit me. It was a terrible time, but I found refuge in this album. Yeah it's pretentious, but it's so deep and evocative, that it immediately became a classic for me, a rarity indeed!
3The Mars Volta
De-Loused in the Comatorium

Generic, generic, blah blah blah. Still, at one time in my life I thought that this was one of the most important pieces of music EVER. Yeah, I've since realized differently, but goddamn if Eriatarka still doesn't get me every time.
Jane Doe

Description for number 3, multiplied by 50, and supplement "Concubine" for "Eriatarka." Took me literally a year to fall in love with. I mean, we've all been there right? Had it at a two, then progressively bumped? Yeah, it takes some time to love, but that's why it's so wonderful, the effort it took to unravel it. There's more depth than one would immediately think, and it took dozens upon dozens of listens for me to see that.
5World's End Girlfriend
Hurtbreak Wonderland

Pretty much the only thing by this guy I expressly adore. I swear, if you could wear out an MP3 file, then "Birthday Resistance" would be in tethers by now.
