Queen - Greatest Hits (Because that ignited my passion for this band)
Nirvana - Unplugged in New York (Because this band got me into playing guitar)
U2 - Pop (got me into the best band in the world)
G3 - Live (Because it got me into practicing more in the vein of virtuoso guitar playing)
Alejandro Sanz - Más

Spinal Tap - Break Like The Wind has to be the most influential album of all time! Also worth a nod of appreciation is Des O' Connors Greatest Hits.
