IllmaticUnited States Nas
Fuck me, it's just so good. Nas just kills every single moment on Illmatic, painting characters, scenarios and locations with his lyrics. He never pretends to be anything but an observer, and I think that's where the beauty of Illmatic really comes from, as it allows Nas to illustrate his life in the simplest of terms without needing to flex his proverbial muscles. And the beats, of my god the beats, they are sublime, flowing, diverse but all together coherent. Also this was a pretty heavy focal point of my dissertation (in politics), and even writing 12,000 words on this couldn't slow my love for it.

The Queen Is DeadUnited Kingdom The Smiths
The album of my teenage years, (lol I'm only 21), and interchangeable with Illmatic and Doolittle. The Smiths are funny, and that is what so many miss about them, they want to poke fun at misery, love, royalty and everything in between, and The Queen is Dead is their zenith. I can chuckle or curl up into a ball and cry to this album, sometimes even simultaneously, and I know of nothing else with the same impact.

DoolittleUnited States Pixies
Doolittle is scary, I'd never heard anything like it the first time I heard it, and I've still yet to hear anything like it. But it's not just scary, it's electric, eclectic, deranged and thrilling. It's like an ever changing rollercoaster, but you're on acid, and you don't quite know how you feel about it, and you don't know whether you like it, but you do like it because you are going to come back to it again and again just to recapture that feeling.

DonutsUnited States J Dilla
How best to describe Donuts? It's like the best mixtape you ever heard, a musical collage. So many sample based enterprises end up with the artist giving themselves a clap on the back for being so clever, Dilla never sounds that way, rather his journey through his collection sounds at once reverential and passionate, as if he was making music out of music that he loved originally and simply wanted to reframe. It's also beautifully structured for what that may be worth.

Damn such nice picks! Great to see such eclectic variety in there. You should keep expanding you comments for these albums.

I too have fallen in love with Blonde recently. You should check out these two albums that feel to me to have a similar feel to them. Not necessarily directly sounding similar, but in the way that they play with noise. 22 A Million is the more similar of the two I would say, and is also my favorite of the two.

Bon Iver - 22, A Million
Low - Double Negative

Always great to see a nice serving of black music on here as it is definitely underrated (no rap in the top 50? come on!!). The other selections are wonderful as well. I finally found someone who likes The Velvet Underground s/t more than & Nico s/t
