My vote goes to OK Computer > Kid A, interested to hear what others think
10 honorable mentions (theres so many!) in no particular order:
Dark Side > Wish You Were Here Sgt. Peppers > Magical Mystery Tour Zeppelin III > IV De-Loused > Frances At Dawn > It Still Moves Los Angeles > Cosmogramma This is a Long Drive > Lonesome Crowded West Aquemini > Stankonia Beggars Banquet > Let it Bleed The Doors > Strange Days
Magical Mystery Tour was between Sgt. Pepper and White Album, but I can see how you wouldn't really consider that a true LP/studio album.
Personally I prefer LCW>Moon & Antarctica for Modest Mouse, but you really can't go wrong either way.
Talking Heads 77>More Songs About Buildings And Food>Fear of Music>Remain in Light>Speaking in Tongues has to be on there in some fashion. Now that I think about it, that's probably my favorite 5 album stretch ever.
Edit: Totally forgot about Rubber Soul>Revolver. I'd probably put that ahead of yours, just cause I like both better than Sgt. Pepper. Also, damn you for doing this right before I go to bed cause I'm going to be thinking about this all night, hah.

Yeah, I just ran through my iTunes and put down combos that I saw that hadn't been included. You did pretty good at condensing them to just 10. And I agree with Dre/Eminem. I almost went back for Em, but I figured I had enough. Same with Neil.

ATLiens > Aquemini (Stankonia is way overrated) Kid A > Amnesiac (Please don't shoot me) Leviathan > Blood Mountain (Best 1-2 run of recent metal) Master of Puppets > Ride the Lightning (Best 1-2 run of metal, ever) Kind of Blue > Sketches of Spain Sketches of Spain > Someday My Prince Will Come biznatches' Brew > A Tribute to Jack Johnson (This whole post could be Miles Davis) Ironman > Supreme Clientele Yankee Hotel Foxtrot > A Ghost is Born Slanted & Enchanted > Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain Ten > Vs.

Also come to mind.
Ones already mentioned: Los Angeles > Cosmogramma Master of Puppets > ...And Justice For All Sound of Silver > This Is Happening Off The Wall > Thriller
I'm leaving out the obvious: Beatles, Pink Floyd, Stones, Zeppelin, Neil Young (Just pick 2)
The Pearl Jam mentions in this thread of heartbreaking. I like them, but c'mon. Best ever?
I agree. Not only is 808's better than anyone gives it credit for, but it's easily one of the most influential albums of the 2000s. You can hear it all over everything in modern hip-hop and R&B now, and not just the autotune. The whole atmosphere continues to resonate over and over.
And yeah, Pearl Jam. They have their faults, but I think the first four albums are pretty stellar. In particular, Ten is a damn fine debut and Vs. is undeniably their best.
