What are your absolute favorite albums? Here are mine, in alphabetical order by album title.
I think that accurately portrays my taste in music. I have a few other albums that I absolutely adore, but these ones are the most precious to me and mean the most to me / have shaped me the most. Plus, I had to limit it to some number (I chose 21 because that's how old I am). What are yours?
If we share any favorites, you should totally like my post and I'll do the same for yours!
The Wonder Years - "The Greatest Generation"
The Wonder Years - "The Upsides"
The Toasters - "Don't Let the... Grind You Down"
Sleeping With Sirens - "With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear"
Reel Big Fish - "Candy Coated Fury"
A Day to Remember - "Homesick"
For All Those Sleeping - "Cross Your Fingers"
From First to Last - "Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count"
Underoath - "They're Only Chasing Safety"
The Devil Wears Prada - "With Roots Above and Branches Below"
ClariS - "Birthday"
Less Than Jake - "Hello Rockview"
Save Ferris - "It Means Everything"
My favourite albums are pretty eclectic, which also means I don't really have much of a taste, but here you go. My top 25.
Order in zigzag:- Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavillion Aphex Twin - Richard D. James Album Boards of Canada - Music Has The Right To Children Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago Built to Spill - There's Nothing Wrong With Love Daft Punk - Discovery Death Grips - The Money Store Erik Satie - Erik Satie: Piano Works Eric Dolphy - Out to Lunch Fleetwood Mac - Rumours Girl Talk - All Day Jay-Z - The Blueprint Joni Mitchell - Blue Kanye West - Late Registration Binary Star - Masters of the Universe The Killers - Hot Fuss knxwledge. - Ovrstnd.LP Madvillain - Madvillainy Miles Davis - Relaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea Nick Drake - Pink Moon Radiohead - Kid A The Streets - Original Pirate Material The Strokes - Is This It Tracy Chapman - Tracy Chapman
Had to decide between Yeezy's Late Registration or My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (both great albums by the way), but I feel like the former edges out for me.
EDIT: Also, if you want to make an album collage, you can do so using this link.

None of them are in order, except that KoL album at the top is my favorite of all time. Go figure.
Luckily I know just the site to use for this kind of thread. [Link] It'll produce the kind of thing you see in my spoiler, very time consuming though so be warned.
Anyway... my choices -
I've attempted to order them, but it's difficult with most of them to separate. At least they're vaguely in the right area of where they belong though. I might have omitted a few albums accidentally, but it gives a general idea.
I'm quite happy to see a few of my albums in other users' posts already. Very good taste people. :P
I had a hard time picking my all-time favorite albums. I don't think I really did and I'm sure I couldn't actually do it, but this is close. These are all albums that I like in their entirety and ones that I've at times listened to over and over and would again.

Damn good stuff right there, Nuke. I didn't put any mixtapes on, but yeah 1999 is the **** [long live asap too], hopefully Joey's new EP will be good as well. You should check out the Underachievers' tape Indigoism if youre into those guys. Also I'm a bit surprised to see no Acid rap haha, that one's usually a favorite of hip hop heads/indie guys.
also I just dled J Dilla's Donuts, and it's really good, definitely a fan of it, i'd probably consider it for the list in my above post
Way too hard to choose some favorite albums of mine.. one band I can listen to no matter what mood I am in is mewithoutYou. I can't even choose a favorite album by them.. Catch for us the Foxes, A>B Life, Brother Sister... darn my indecisiveness.
In no particular order, because I'll go through phases with certain albums every few months.
Logic - Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever Logic - Young Sinatra: Undeniable Kid Cudi - Man on the Moon: The End of Day Eyedea & Abilities - Eyedea & Abilities Eyedea & Abilities - By the Throat Kanye West - Graduation Edan - Beauty and the Beat Dumbfoundead - Old Boy Jon Blu & Exile - Below the Heavens Nujabes - Modal Soul Trace Blam & Soul Chef - Bottles
holy **** yeah quiggy you do have an amazing taste, i rediscovered below the heavens this summer and it's probably one of my favorite albums out of all of them, such an amazing hip hop album, logic, ye and nujabes are all great too, i should probably check out eyedea given the similarities in our music tastes
id edit my post with the new stuff i found but theres way too much, stars of cctv owns really hard though
