    Okay, I can't do ten albums from each decade, but I CAN do a top 10 overall (the sixties don't hold much interest for me, except for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Doors, I was more a child of the '70's):

    1. Led Zeppelin - IV (Zoso) (IMO, the greatest rock 'n roll album EVER)
    2. Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive!
    3. Journey - Infinity
    4. Journey - Evolution
    5. Van Halen - Van Halen
    6. Aerosmith - Toys In The Attic
    7. Queen - The Game
    8. Heart - Greatest Hits/Live
    9. Def Leppard - Pyromania
    10. Motley Crue - Shout At The Devil

    Sorry for warming up a dead thread, but this a very good question :D

    So here's my ten, in no particular order

    36Crazyfists - A Snow Capped Romance
    Sleater-Kinney - All Hands On The Bad One
    Denali - Denali
    65 Days Of Static - The Destruction Of Small Ideas
    Will Haven - WHVN
    Sonic Youth - Sister
    lostprophets - thefakesoundofprogress (the original release, rather than the remixed re-release)
    Glassjaw - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence
    Head Automatica - Decadence
    Miocene - Refining The Theory



    Very hard choice, but if i could only have ten, it would be those ten 8)

    Not enough in the 60s for me to have 10. But here is today's "Stranded on an Island 10" in no sequence that will probably be different if you ask me tomorrow

    Blue Oyster Cult- ET Live
    Savatage- Ghost in the Ruins
    Black Sabbath- Live Evil
    Megadeth- That One Night
    Motörhead- Stage Fright (audio from a DVD put on a CD counts)
    Queensryche- Operation Mindcrime I
    Ozzy- Speak at the Devil
    Iron Maiden- Powerslave
    AC/DC- Back in Black
    Judas Priest- Screaming for Vengance

    Per Spinal Tap, all the above require a stereo amp that goes to "11"

    I'm too young for this one! :lol:

    Rammstein: Sehnsucht
    Rammstein: Mutter
    Rammstein: Reise, Reise
    I really like their other two, but not as much as those 3.
    Shinedown: Leave a Whisper
    Shinedown: Us and Them
    Shinedown: The Sound of Madness
    Breaking Benjamin: Phobia
    People In Planes: Beyond the Horizon
    Halestorm: Halestorm
    Thornley: Come Again

    Those are the entire albums, but there are of course a lot of other songs and artists that I like, but those are the full albums I can't live without.
