Besides Rubber Soul, Revolver and Magical Mystery Tour, in no particular order:

Pink Floyd-Dark Side Of The Moon

Queen-A Day At The Races

Queen-A Night At The Opera

Nirvana-Nevermind

Muse-Black Holes And Revelations

Metallica-Death Magnetic

Metallica-Master Of Puppets

 

Those 3 Beatles albums are definitely more listened to by me than those other albums though.

My favorite bands/artists are those that give every album a different touch so my favorites have always included multiple albums from the same groups. I like several bands that have developed a signature style over several releases, but one style gets old after a while! Even subtle changes are respectable. I don't believe that changing your sound is "selling out" for any reason. Even if they are trying to reach a broader audience, I wouldn't call it selling out (you don't sign a recording contract because you don't want to sell records….). I'm an old metal-head and I don't even mind a band slowing down or softening up. If THE BEATLES taught us anything, it's that a musical career is defined by change, not always pushing forward, but away from what was! Looking back is fine, spinning sideways is ok, blowing-up and breaking-down is all good, but always attempting to best the last version of what you were. Hell…we can learn a lot about LIFE from The FABS!!! My favorite albums are also those that hold a particular, personal memory with them. Sounds that remind me of a time in my life or a person that is special to me. An album that I might not think is an artist's "best" ends up as my "favorite" due to the emotional attachment it has to me personally.

In NO particular order:

Abbey Road – The Beatles
The Beatles (White Album) – The Beatles
Let It Be – The Beatles
Revolver – The Beatles
Help - The Beatles
Love - The Beatles
RAM – Paul & Linda McCartney
Electric Arguments – The Fireman
Venus and Mars – Wings
Blood Sugar Sex Magic – Red Hot Chili Peppers
One Hot Minute – Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Great Southern Trendkill – Pantera
Cowboys From Hell - Pantera
Use Once and Destroy – Superjoint Ritual
Down II (a bustle in your hedgerow) – Down
The Sound of Perseverance – Death
Necrotism/Descanting the Insalubrious – Carcass
Warpath - Six Feet Under
Bloody Kisses – Type O Negative
Astro Creep 2000 – White Zombie
The Bleeding – Cannibal Corpse
Danzig 4p – Danzig
The Lost Tracks – Danzig
Heaven and Hell – Black Sabbath
Paranoid - Black Sabbath
Plastic Ono Band – John Lennon
33 1/3 - George Harrison
Garage Inc. – Metallica
Master of Puppets – Metallica
Down on the Upside - Soundgarden
 
  
That's thirty of my favorite albums. If I had included compilations these would've been on the list:
Anthology 1,2, and 3 – The Beatles
Past Masters 1 and 2 – The Beatles
Last Embrace – Spirit Caravan
Best of the Box – Alice in Chains
From Here to Ghenna – Fields of the Nephilim
First Rays of the New Rising Sun – Jimi Hendrix
Greatest Hits – Electric Light Orchestra
Greatest Hits – The Band

1. Sgt. Pepper's – The Beatles

2. Abbey Road – The Beatles

3. Dark Side Of The Moon – Pink Floyd

4. Bridge Over Troubled Water – Simon and Garfunkel

5. Revolver – The Beatles

6. All Things Must Pass – George Harrison

7. Band On The Run – Wings

8. Nevermind – Nirvana

9. Speak Now – Taylor Swift

10. Imagine – John Lennon

11. Tug Of War – Paul McCartney

12. Dino: Italian Love Songs – Dean Martin (This album has always been one of my favorites, and I think having my all time favorite song on it, On An Evening In Roma, makes me like it that much more.)

13. The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan – Bob Dylan

14. Pet Sounds – The Beach Boys

15. Good News For People Who Love Bad News – Modest Mouse

16. (What's The Story) Morning Glory? – Oasis

17. The Predator – Ice Cube (I usually can't listen to rap albums straight through, but this one is too good)

18. It Might As Well Be Swing – Frank Sinatra (I like Nothing But The Best better, but this is my favorite real album of his.)

19. Fearless – Taylor Swift

20. Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness – The Smashing Pumpkins

This is pretty much the same, but I would take out (What's The Story) Morning Glory? and Mellon Collie and put in Runaroud Sue by Dion and Anthology by the Four Seasons

Wetsroosa mentioned Leo Kottke. Love him and all that finger-picking 12 string, especially "Eight Miles High." (By the way, S Roosa was one of the Apollo astronauts – any connection?"

Maclenharristar has brought up Jethro Tull. I guess that makes two Tull fans on this Forum. Having said that, there are Tull fans who like everything they did beginning with Aqualung, and those who like Aqualung and everything that came before. I'm in the latter category. Love  Stand Up and Benefit, and then there's "Beggar's Farm" and "My Sunday Feeling" from This Was.

And as for Cream's Disraeli Gears, just had my Telecaster painted:

Nice!  Is that an actual paint job or an applied transfer?  Looks good either way.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Excellent job, that!

(And I enjoy a high percentage of Tull's 1968-1973 output, so there's at least three of us, anyways)

Satan Himself and Von Bontee, thanks. It's real paint. The artist first did a mock-up on cardboard. She had a hard time with the faces, so she seamlessly moved the middle of the album cover up so as to mostly cover the faces. That worked out 'coz now the "Disraeli Gears" is apparent.

Glad to hear there are THREE Tull fans.

I've wondered that myself actually, Into the Sky. It's not a common last name unless you live in upstate New York. One of my distant relatives put together this genealogy book on the Roosa tree years ago and I'm certain Stu Roosa was in there. I can say for sure that after my wife married me, she went digging into the Roosa archives (spurred on by the Who Do You Think You Are? show NBC used to have) and she discovered a lineage the Roosas had to the Roosevelts.

Yeah, "6 & 12 String Guitar" is great.

Wow that guitar is awesome!

Oh and I really don't like Jethro Tull. My mom is a fan and she kind of used to force me to listen to it. I would always end up crying. I do enjoy some songs though.
