I can't imagine any album overtaking this on my list. This album would be perfection if not for the digression during Moonchild. An essential listen for any music fan.

Such a good album, never really gets old. Love this album from start to finish, even though I consider I Bleed and Silver weak spots of the album. This is one of the greatest albums of all time and is definitely an essential listen.

Favorite Tracks: Debaser, Here Comes Your Man, Monkey Gone to Heaven, La La Love You (incredibly underrated track), Hey, Gouge Away

This album gets better every time you listen to it. I know many prefer Since I Left You to this, but for me this one takes the cake. One of my all time favorites, and may be my most listened to album as of now.

Favorite Tracks: Because I'm Me, Subways, Colours, Harmony, Live a Lifetime Love, The Wozard of Iz

Originally Oracular Spectacular was my favorite MGMT album. It was my first experience hearing them, and held a sentimental value. But as I've listened more and more, I've realized this is truly their best. Perfect mixture of indie, psychedelic, and electronic elements that culminate in one of the most underrated albums ever.

Favorite Tracks: Song for Dan Treacy, Flash Delirium, I Found a Whistle, Flash Delirium, Congratulations

My favorite Beatles album ever, and the marking point of when the Beatles shifted from more mainstream pop to better music. Love this album from start to finish, and the harmonies are incredible.

Very nice list, lots of great records here! Just keep expanding your chart, I'd like to come back and see how it's changed once more albums are added.

Have you heard Lonerism by Tame Impala? You should definitely give it a listen, I'm sure you'd enjoy it based on the albums here. ShadowColossi gave it a great review that made me reevaluate the album on his chart here: http://www.besteveralbums.com/thechart.php?c=29023

You might also like Good Morning Spider by Sparklehorse. An incredible album made in surreal circumstances (read the Wikipedia page!)
Still don't understand why so few people have heard of it.
