What are (in your opinion) 10 albums that every music fan should own.
The Beatles - White Album - Not really my personal favorite Beatles album, but a definite classic. It's influenced every piece of rock music since.
The Clash - London Calling - Is there any current band this album hasn't influenced? From Punk, to Ska to everything in between. Sounds as fresh today as it did in 1979.
Dean Martin - Dino: The Essential Dean Martin - How to narrow it down to just one Dean album is impossible. This greatest hits collection contains every great thing that made Dean amazing.
The Eagles - Greatest Hits - Their individual albums weren't anything great, but take the good stuff of those albums, put it on two albums and you've got greatness.
Frank Sinatra - Sinatra at the Sands - The only live album in this mix, but that's because it just rules. Sinatra, in his element, in Vegas with the audience. What a show-man.
Bob Marley and the Wailers - Legend - If you don't have this album, why not!!! It's most likely the defining collection of music in the latter half of the 20th century.
Prince - Purple Rain Soundtrack - Another one of those albums that sounds as fresh today as it did in 1984. The movie it was attached to wasn't too great, but this is most definitely Prince's crowning achievement.
Led Zeppelin - IV - Just a tremendous feat in Rock N' Roll.
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon - Again, not my personal favorite Pink Floyd album (Animals) but pure perfection from beginning to end.
U2 - The Joshua Tree - Perfection, just pure and utter perfection.
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Aerosmith - Greatest Hits
Run DMC - Raisin' Hell
R.E.M. - Automatic for the people
Beastie Boys - License to Ill
Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction
Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced
