To be honest, I rarely listen to full albums straight through anymore. I've been swallowed by technology and mostly have a collection of miscellaneous songs, but I'll try. Here's my contribution:
The Chroninc - Dr. Dre: The start of G-Funk and a major influence of west coast rap for years to come. Not a bad track on the album.
At Folsom Prison - Johnny Cash: Amazingly entertaining. Listen to the inmates cheer with each track. I absolutley love this album.
The Cars - The Cars: Very catchy album. Almost every track became a radio hit. Easy to listen to from start to finish.
Purple Rain - Prince: Prince is just so talented and if you don't like him, nothing I say will change your mind.
Sublime - Sublime: So varied in its musical style, from rock to raggae to punk, but still flows from one track to the next. I think of SoCal every time I listen to it.
Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde - The Pharcyde: Pure fun and entertainment. Fun and easy to listen to straight through, but the lyrics are clever and skillful, too. Even the skits and interludes, which I usually hate on most albums, are fun and easy to listen through.
Brushfire Fairytales - Jack Johnson: Very folksy and bluesy, but so mellow and laid back that it's hard not to sing along to.
Paid in Full - Eric B. and Rakim: Jay-Z tries to claim the title, but he will never be greatest rapper alive until Rakim dies. A masterpiece album that influenced so many.
The Best of Sade - Sade: A perfect collection of an amazing voice.
Prolonging the Magic - Cake: My first taste of Cake (bad pun) and my favorite. Even though a lot of Cake sounds the same, when I listen to this album I don't feel like I'm listening to the same song for thirteen tracks
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) - The Wu-Tang Clan: Incredible lyrics on dark beats. It's funny and menacing at the same time.
Silent Alarm - Bloc Party: The most recent album I have heard sraight through. I'm not even sure just what I liked about the album, but something appealed to me.
The Best of Earth, Wind, & Fire - Earth, Wind, & Fire: Some of their best stuff with no disco hits. A great collection.
Appetite For Destruction - Guns N Roses: Eighties radio rock at its best.
The Slim Shady LP - The Marshall Mathers LP was probably better, but I enjoy listening to this track for track more. Maybe because it has more of a freestyle feel to it.
The Essential David Allan Coe - David Allan Coe: The biggest hits from the boggest country outlaw. And there is no better drinking song than You Never Even Call Me...
Song Review - Stevie Wonder - Probably the best collection of Stevie hits available on one album.
Metallica - Metallica: Maybe not the popular pick for best Metallica album, but it's my favorite.
It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back - Public Enemy: Hard beats and gritty lyrics. So energitic and it keeps my amped through the whole album.
Songs You Know By Heart - Jimmy Buffett: A good collection for either the casual Buffett fan or a new Parrothead.
As I wrote this, I tried to pick albums that represented my varied taste in music. I also realized there are still a lot of albums I enjoy start to finish. I had to leave some out that I still really love. And yes, I realize I included a couple "greatest hits" albums, but they are some good "greatest hits" albums. Anyway, I'm always ready to discuss music and sample something new, so I hope I can discover something new to enjoy from this thread.
