    Agree with you about his first two studio records, also his Asylum choir records, especially the second one. But I like Leon Live because of the live aspect and song selection; a great concert recording.

    My real top 10 would be really scary, so I'll try to make a more accessible one (not in order):

    Zappa: Joe's Garage Acts I, II, and III
    Zappa: Uncle Meat
    King Crimson: Red
    Pink Floyd: Animals
    Pink Floyd: The Wall
    Pink Floyd: The Division Bell
    Steven Wilson: The Raven That Refused to Sing (And Other Stories)
    Flotation Toy Warning: Bluffer's Guide to the Flight Deck
    The Flaming Lips: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
    Magma: Ëmëhntëhtt-Ré (this one is like a literal rock opera, not just a rock album with a story)

    The original version of "The Sound of Silence" is way better than the "revised" version in my opinion. It's ruined by the electric guitar. I don't know if I'd count that album as rock though.

    Maybe not the Best album, but it is bringing Britrock and Glamrock back in the mainstream.

    Some interesting lists. Nice that there's such a range of styles (even in one single list).

    Allow me to add Zappa's Waka/Jawaka as well. I just gave it a good listen, and it's brilliant, creative genius!
