Top Albums Of 1979
10 Ron Carter
Third Plane

With a lineup like this, it's hard not to give this a spot in the top 10. A fantastic fusion album backed by a very exceptional rhythm section.

My favourite Motorhead album of the four they released with their 'classic' lineup (and probably my favourite period).
8Frank Zappa
Sheik Yerbouti

Zappa's best selling record, this is mostly a straight across rock album and typically recommended for first time FZ listeners.
7Frank Zappa
Orchestral Favorites

Zappa's classical music I find gets lost a bit in the breadth of his other work. That said, it's all really good. Especially Strictly Genteel, which might be my favourite song of his. This album contains one of my favourite renditions of said song.
6The Police
Reggatta de Blanc

All 5 Police albums are probably going to make my lists somehow. I love their sound. I find this one to be a little less, uh, punky I guess might be an appropriate word than Outlandos, but that's okay because that leads to tracks like Walking on the Moon.
5Frank Zappa
Sleep Dirt

This is an album by Zappa I didn't realize was as good as it was until just last year. This album is fantastic fusion. The Ocean is the Ultimate Solution might be on of the best tracks Zappa ever wrote.
4Pink Floyd
The Wall

I listened to this album lots when I was younger, and I still love it. It doesn't quite have the same effect, but songs like Young Lust, Comfortably Numb, Nobody Home, Hey You, and more make this one of the most classic albums ever made.
3 Frank Zappa
Joe's Garage

This is the year of Zappa. Maybe his most accessible fusion album, this double album tells the hilarious story of Joe and his quest for happiness. Zappa's best guitar moment, Watermelon in Easter Hay, is featured on Part 3.
2Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures

Bleak is the only word to describe this album. Absolutely spirit crushingly bleak. I swear, Day of the Lords is heavier than most metal.
Breakfast in America

I'm not sure how Supertramp was able to release two such good albums in Breakfast in America and Crime of the Century, and then release virtually nothing else worth listening to. Oh well, this one tops my list which says a lot because I really love every album on here. There's just not a song that couldn't be considered a hit on this album, it's unbelievable. It's like they had been hoarding away all these good songs and then decided to release them all in one shot.
