Brother Stephen beat me to the punch with his album list. It has more records on it than mine, to be sure, and he is characteristically eloquent about it. Read the entire jam over at his blog on stereophile.com HERE.
Interesting overlap: He and I both chose records by The Boss, the Stones, the Beasties, Belle & Sebastian, and the Pixies, but only in one case (Bruce) did we choose the same record. I guess that's as close to consensus as the band's gonna get (though I too would've throw Prince/M.J./The Lemonheads and some others on mine, were I more thoughtful and less capricious).
