only 10 is near impossible...as some have said, this can, and does, change as often as the wind does in kansas

bob mould - workbook
ry cooder - get rhythm
r.e.m. - eponymous
robbie robertson - robbie roberston
warren zevon - excitable boy
peter gabriel - 1
'the big easy' soundtrack
the chieftains - the long black veil
kraftwerk - autobahn

(holy moley...only one more...?)
um...beethovens 9th: current fave vers. is michael tilson thomas conducting the english chamber orch. w/the tallis chamber choir, et.al

i could triple this list, easily, with the stuff i listen to to regularly...
at the end of the end it's the start of a journey to a much better place and this wasn't bad so a much better place would have to be special...no need to be sad...

Glad to see someone giving POP the props it deserves. That and Unforgetable Fire rotate as my faves.

Can't believe I forgot Genesis - Foxtrot. Also I think Selling England By The Pound is one of the greatest albums of all time. Not in my personal top ten, but great none the less.

Who's Next seems really popular with a lot of you guys. I like it a lot, in fact if I'm ever in a little covers band, I'm gonna sing "My Wife". I love that song, it's a great little rocker. Although I don't know what we'd do about the brass bit...
