BEST ALBUM EVER RECORDED

I'm currently inclined toward "Imperial Bedroom" by Elvis Costello, but I'm sure there are a lot of differing opinions. Heck, I even have a few!

I can go on and on about tremendous albums by fairly well known artists (Neil Young's Mirror Ball), lesser known artists (Brian Eno's Another Green World), and very obscure artists (Michael Rother's Sternteller), but one album has just always seemed perfect to me: Who's Next by the Who.

Thank you for asking.

Actually, it's a toss-up between "The Doors" by Th...well, you know who.
And "Rumours" by Jefferson Airplane.

Although, you really can't go wrong with Sgt. Pepper...

Not sure if this is scary or not but am right there with Clever on this one, but I think Dark Side of the Moon wins - especially in the special SACD version where you have sound coming at you from every direction - had no idea half that stuff was in there.

JUST ONE ALBUM?!!!

You people are weird...

With my esteemed coolleagues (sic) above with 'Dark Side...', but I like shouting along with 'The Wall' too.
Hmm, let me see: what else? Bowie's 'Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars' is practically perfect, right down to the cover art. The first side of 'Houses of the Holy' is brilliant but so is the second side of 'Led Zep III' - can we use CC's cut 'n' paste method to make one album from two?!

And all the Elvis Costello albums mentioned are also brilliant, but I like 'Spike' best: not least for the best song ever written about a serving Prime Minister ('Tramp The Dirt Down' http://www.jango.com/music/Elvis+Costello?l=0 ). It also has 'God's Comic' in it, which I think may be one of the best songs ever written. Here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0N6TfU54o8

Seether - Karma and Effect
Audioslave - self titled
3 Doors Down - self titled

Must have these 3, at the very least, all three have great songs from beginning to end.

A few I would want with me if stuck on a deserted island

Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
Highway 61 Revisited -Bob Dylan
Tapestry- Carole King
[also- any Doctor Demento compilation].
If I was stranded there as long as Tom Hanks on Castaway- I'd be pretty darn demented for sure anyway.
