If I claim to be a wise man , it surely means that I don't know .

Hmmm... hard one... In no particular order...
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II
Neil Young - Everybody Knows This is Nowhere

Huh, there's nothing recent on there. Can I give honorable mention to a couple of more recent (modern) albums? Give them a few years to acquire vintage patina, and they'll be on my lists too. :) Nirvana - Unplugged, Green Day - American Idiot.

I know - only 5, but what am I to do with Metallica and Fleetwood Mac? It isn't really fair to them. I'm just thinking of them, not me.
