1 The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
One would be hard pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground and Nico. While it reportedly took over a decade for the album's sales to crack six figures, glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise, and nearly every other left-of-center rock movement owes an audible debt to this set. While The Velvet Underground had as distinctive a sound as any band, what's most surprising about this album is its diversity. Here, the Velvets dipped their toes into dreamy pop ("Sunday Morning"), tough garage rock ("Waiting For The Man"), stripped-down R&B ("There She Goes Again"), and understated love songs ("I'll Be Your Mirror") when they weren't busy creating sounds without pop precedent. …

To begin, let me state that neither of my favourite Stones tracks, Satisfaction and Sympathy for the Devil, are here.
The album begins by opening a jaundiced eye to the world Gimme Shelter. This is followed by a heartfelt tribute from Keith Richards; a cover of Love in Vain. Third, a tribute to Gram Parsons, Country Honk (aka Honky Tonk Women). And there are still two more classics on side one.
Opening side two the Psycho Killer with the deadly harmonica: Midnight Rambler. And the school choir truism of You Can't Always Get What You Want...Brilliant!
Note that Monkey Man is confusingly nothing to do with Monkey Man

Let It Bleed
Love in Vain
Live With Me
Let It Bleed
You Got the Silver
You Can't Always Get What You Want
Essentially, it's the only album I can get all the way through without skipping every time. I'd put Exile on Main Street and Sticky Fingers on here too, but i don't see too much point on dwelling on one artist...
Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed
Don't Sit Down
Letter to Hermione
An Occasional Dream
Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud
God Knows I'm Good
Memory of a Free Festival
Basically the album that got me into David Bowie in the first place. Thus, it's just excellent.
