      Great list. I'm more partial to Caress of Steel than 2112 but I can't argue with ANY Rush album being on a list. Plus 'Tears' is one of my favorite tunes of all-time. Very moving.

    Good list and kudos for not listing Nevermind. You have a wide range here. From different categories of music, different time periods as well as artists that even if people arent necessarily into that category of music, consider that particular album good. I personally could not come up with 10, I like all kinds of music and it would be impossible for me to narrow it down to just 10.
