Wish You Were Here

This would be higher but both Shine On You Crazy Diamond tracks don't count for their full duration. Same deal with In A Silent Way by Miles Davis. No recommended tracks - should be experienced as a whole album.
29De La Soul
Stakes Is High

I actually only own a Best of - chose this for album art and also because Stakes Is High is just about the best hip hop song ever imo.

Are lots of albums themed/based on the sea? Or is it just me? Rec. tracks - Are You Here?, Diving For Hearts, I'd Do It All Again

11Mos Def
Black On Both Sides

Rec. Tracks - Hip Hop, Umi Says, Mr Nigga, Mathematics
10The Roots
How I Got Over

Game Theory I think is better but I listen to this much often because it's more positive and other stuff fills the depressing quota. Rec. tracks - Right On, Radio Daze
9Bob Dylan
Blood on the Tracks

Rec. Tracks - Tangled Up in Blue, Idiot Wind, Simple Twist of Fate
8David Bowie

Rec. tracks - Warszawa, Subterraneans

The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady

Rec. Track - Duet Solo Dancers. But best heard in the entirety.
5Arcade Fire

Rec. Track - Rebellion (Lies), Wake Up, Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
4John Coltrane
A Love Supreme

Rec. Track - Resolution

Rec. track - 'Joga' or 'Bachelorette', but honestly just about all of them are brilliant.
2Joanna Newsom

Rec. track - 'Only Skin'. Goes for ages and worth every second.
1Miles Davis
Kind of Blue

Tied with a few of his other albums. Recommended track - all of them, especially 'Blue in Green'
