Revisiting Times Before I Was Born...

Backwards journeys are good things to have for a budding musicians... as long as you don't end up becoming Wolfmother. Before anyone notices 2 and 3 shouldn't be on here, I've pre-empted you. I just thought they deserved a mention.
1 Frank Zappa
The Best Of Frank Zappa

Just a great collection of songs. I haven't got any of his individual albums, but this really makes me want to. San Ber'dino, My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama... well, just about every song makes me incredibly happy to be alive for whatever reason :)
2Brand New
The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me

Sowing Season made me regain faith in stuff my friends like. It's full of amazing lyrics, beautiful melodies etc. and I'm so glad that I didn't let the sometimes irritating harmonies of Deja Entendu get to my judgement - nearly all the flaws present on Deja Entendu have been fixed.
3Dream Theater

I'm a fanboy, and unashamed of it.
Holy Diver

Probably the best Dio album (solo at least), and a fantastic demonstration of the abilities of one of my favourite classic metal singers.
The Joshua Tree

U2's best, tbh. Much better than their lackluster 90's efforts.
6King Crimson
In The Court Of The Crimson King

I don't need to explain this, do I?
7The Beatles
Abbey Road

I wish I'd checked out the Beatles more seriously a bit earlier now...
Ride The Lightning

...And Justice For All still blows this out of the water, but this is growing on me fast.
9Deep Purple
Machine Head

Still not sure if I get the fuss, but Smoke on The Water has such a good solo.
10The Doors
The Doors

Oh yes... Simply put, one of my all-time favourite albums.
