With repeats:

1. U2 - The Unforgettable Fire
2. U2 - The Joshua Tree
3. Dream Theater - Awake
4. Porcupine Tree - Stupid Dream
5. Anathema - Judgement
6. Dream Theater - Images And Words
7. Crowded House - Together Alone
8. Passengers - Original Soundtracks 1
9. Agalloch - Pale Folklore
10. Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures

As there are only two repeats, if they were removed, the following two would also make the list:

11. Pure Reason Revolution - The Dark Third
12. Split Enz - True Colours

That said, only the top seven is solid and the others were just chosen on the spur of the moment.

"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I'm too lazy and indecisive to rank these, and they could all be different tomorrow. I also hate including an artist more than once:

The Clash - 'London Calling'
U2 - 'Achtung Baby'
The Cure - 'Disintegration'
Idlewild - '100 Broken Windows'
Radiohead - 'OK Computer'
Interpol - 'Turn On the Bright Lights'
Manic Street Preachers - 'The Holy Bible'
AFI - 'Black Sails In the Sunset'
The Shins - 'Chutes Too Narrow'
My Bloody Valentine - 'Loveless'

EDIT: It's weird, but looking at these albums I can remember specific periods of my life that were almost defined by nearly each of them in some way. I certainly have memories for each one.

Brian Wilson - Smile

U2 - Unforgettable Fire
R.E.M. - Out of Time
John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
Miles Davis - Bitches Brew
