Best Ever Album Tournament - Welcome!

I found a fun waste of time here and thought we could do it on this site. Maybe no one's up for it but our fondness for lists tells me otherwise. I've compiled some top 10 albums lists from the most active users I know. To avoid repetitions I included the entries imediately below the repeated ones on each user's lists, respecting the intended order (it helps that most of you have meticulously ranked lists).

Author Comments: 

I decided to add a critic's top ten to the list. Since Scaruffi has pretty much all of his favorite albums covered, I went with Christgau. I replaced the already listed Exile with New York Dolls's debut (his favorite album by one of his favorite rock bands) and Rubber Soul (a lesser Beatles album that would get dumped) with Thelonious Monk's Misterioso (an album by one of his favorite jazz artists that contains his favorite musical moment ever - the tenor sax solo of "In Walked Bud"). Also added some not-yet-listed albums Lester Bangs once raved about.
