Just finished listening to Hysteria myself. What a fun album! Every song is like a hit single.

I love these threads, not for the opportunity to post my list, but for the opportunity to see everyone's're always going to see things you agree with, disagree with, etc...but the best is when someone lists something you're not familiar with, leading to a discovery that is new to you.....anyway, my list, in no order, with only one per band:

Joshua Tree - U2
OK Computer - Radiohead
Reading, Writing and Arithmetic - The Sundays
Revolver - The Beatles
Life's Rich Pageant - REM
Ferment - Catherine Wheel
The Police - Ghost in the Machine
In My Tribe - 10,000 Maniacs
Exit Stage Left - Rush
Pleased to Meet Me - The Replacements
Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy
Prince - Purple Rain
Bruce Springsteen - Darkness on the Edge of Town

Well, that's 13, sorry.

And, this list represents the only thing I'm qualified to comment on, which are my 10 (13) favorites. I have no idea which are the 10 "best", and I suspect it's actually, or at least hopefully, an impossible question to answer to begin with.
