You must be kidding!

All right, I went for true "albums" that hold together for me, start to finish, and that tend to keep recurring on my playlist over the years as whole albums and always sound good all the way through. I have a ton of jazz albums, so I picked 5 of those and 5 that aren't jazz.

Jazz
Grant Green - Idle Moments (or Born to Be Blue, take your pick)
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Carmen McRae - Carmen Sings Monk
Dave Brubeck - Time Out
Herbie Hancock - Maiden Voyage

Could also include:
John Coltrane - Giant Steps
Kurt Elling - Man in the Air
Sun Ra - Super-Sonic Jazz
Thelonius Monk - Monk's Dream
Sonny Rollins - Saxophone Colossus
Getz/Gilberto - Getz/Gilberto
Tito Puente - Dance Mania
Trio Beyond - Saudades
Wes Montgomery - Full House
Ginger Baker Trio - Going Back Home
John Scofield - En Route


Not Jazz
Bob Marley and the Wailers - Exodus
Grateful Dead - American Beauty (or Workingman's Dead - take your pick)
Neil Young - Live at Massey Hall (or Everybody Knows this is Nowhere)
War - The World is a Ghetto
Dirty Dozen Brass Band - What's Going On

Could also include:
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
Rolling Stones - Let it Bleed (or Sticky Fingers)
Zep - Any of the first 6 albums
Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels on a Gravel Road

I simply cannot do it. Maybe I could do 50 top albums, more likely 100, without feeling like I was leaving essential works behind. Even then...
