The other thread on favorite bands got me to thinking about albums that as a whole I just have to keep in rotation. Sure some groups I like more than any one album they made and some groups I would not buy anything else they did but that one album that just worked for me.

So what are the albums that you just can't leave behind...

Blue Oyster Cult, Fire of Unknown Origin
Pink Floyd, The Wall
Alice Cooper, From the Inside and Killers


I know there are more but at this moment my brain is fried and it's soaked in wine :p

O.k., this is a bit eclectic:

Rumors - Fleetwood Mac
Bat out of Hell - Meat Loaf
Songs for swinging lovers - Sinatra

If I can add more

Anything by Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass
Verve Jazz Masters Blossom Dearie
Porgy and Bess - Fitzgerald and Armstrong

Man, that's so hard to narrow down...

Oooh tough one. There are a bunch, but number 1 with a bullet for me will always be The Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique.

Hmmm...

Sam Cooke - Keep Movin' On (it's one of the better anthologies)
Immortal Technique - Revolutionary Volume 2
Dr. Dre - 2001

Lots more, but those come to mind. Any of those huge 5 disc anthologies (almost discographies) of any soul, R&B, jazz, funk greats would be on the list, too. So the Four Tops one, the Temptations one, the Earth, Wind, and Fire one, the Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes one, the Ray Charles one...they'd all be nice to have around.
