With the arrival of my new PE t-shirt representing one of my all time favourite albums, i thought i might share my five most favoured with y'all.
In no particular order:-

PE - It takes a nation of millions to hold us back.
Gangstarr - Step in the arena.
Massive Attack - Blue Lines
The Stone Roses -The Stone Roses
Ultra Magnetics - Critical beatdown

Special metions to Eric B & Rakim, i cant believe they have not made it into the top 5.

The interesting bit is i have Dj'd for 20 odd years and none of the genres has much to do with what i mix.

Your thoughts?

Five favorite albums... tough choice.

These are the first ones that spring to mind, in no particular order either:

Run DMC: Raising Hell
Tommy Boy Greatest Beats compilation (1985)
Dj Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince: He's the Dj, I'm the Rapper
Still the Joint: Sugarhill remixed
Poison Clan: 2 Low Life Muthas

Ask me again tomorrow and it will probably be different...LOL...

– also, some of these are compilations, I'm not sure if that qualifies Very Happy

Superstars are indeed super...

Notorious BIG - Juicy
RHCP - Californication
RHCP - By the way
Oasis - What's the story (Morning glory)
Jay-z - Reasonable doubt

I'm generally pretty eclectic as also love a bit of Otis Redding, and have Classical FM on preset in the car

If you have £5 and Chuck Norris has £5, Chuck Norris has more money than you.

Such a difficult question but like yours LL my top 5 would definitely contain both Critical Beatdown and Blue Lines. Probably round it out with something like

Tribe Called Quest-Low End Theory
GZA-Liquid Swords
Bob Marley-Catch A Fire

Even as I'm writing this it's already changed....

Supe like Wanton, Buju like Banton

PE: Nation of Millions
Beastie Boys: Paul's Boutique
Soundgarden: Badmotorfinger
Metallica: Justice For All
Tool: Aenima

Only the first two are locks.

Paul's boutique and liquid swords are n my top ten. Along with another 100. Smile
Critical Breakdown was when I truly embraced hip hop, even though I had been listening/breaking to earlier stuff. Blue Lines sums up an era for me. I'm a Bath boy (right next to Bristol) and know some of them by association.. Good work guys.

This 5 is a tough one, it would be easier to name artists rather than LPs.

Who have to include:

Stevie Wonder
Minnie Ripperton/ Rotary Connection
Ernest Ranglin
Bob Marley
Al Green
Leroy Hutson
Marvin Gaye
Rufus/ Chaka Khan
JAMES BROWN and JB family!
All the Native Tongues...

... No this is impossible!

I have tried to add these albums to Spotify list http://open.spotify.com/user/ez-1/playli...2E8eSmFnyU

My list would be something like this, in no particular order:

Pink Floyd - The Wall
Snoop Doggy Dogg - Doggystyle
Foo Fighters - Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace
Metallica - S&M
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Muse - The Resistance
RHCP - Stadium Arcadium OR Californication OR By the Way OR Blood Sugar Sex Magic
2Pac - All Eyez On Me

OR if I can't get all these in my list then I would choose all the albums that came out in 1991. Easily the best year in record business. Check it if you don't believe!

Saw this thread the other day and couldn't possibly post with out plenty time to think about it and I'm still struggling.
To pick 5 from the thousands of pieces of vinyl I have is too hard. I reckon I could narrow it down to a top 30 - 40 albums and from that pot my top 5 would vary on any given day.

definite candidates include:
BDP - By All Means Necessary
Ice Cube - AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted
Digable Planets - Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space)
Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life
Michael Jackson - Off The Wall
The Pharcyde - Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde
Bob Marley - Uprising
Ice T - Power
Run DMC - Raising Hell

Like shellshock said I've changed some of these already.

Would you be good enough to participate in this morning's edification?

Paul Weller (Jam and early solo efforts - PW, WildWood)
Massive Attack (Blue Lines, Protection, Mezzanine)
Verve - Urban Hymes
Beasties - Lic to Ill and Pauls B
